Siam Kitchen: Halal Indochinese Thai Cuisine

"Welcome to the Land Of Smiles", that's what Siam Kitchen aims to achieve through their authentic Thai cuisine by bona fide chefs from Thailand.

I came here with a group of Singapore's fastest man (my relay team mates) for casual dinner. Being Halal certified, we were able to accommodate our Muslim teammates as well. They have an extensive menu for salads, mains and drinks, thus were we spoilt for choices. First world problems. Nevertheless,  we each ordered our main and had some dishes for sharing. Green Curry Chicken ($10) and Tom Yum ($8.9) were mandatory. Spicy Minced Chicken Ball ($8.5), Sambal Kangkong and Seafood/Meat Platter for additional portions. Portions were small and taste was decent. No complaints for food but their service can be improved and hastened a little for a better experience. So if you are looking for a no fuss and casual Thai dining experience, this is the place for you.

Good thai food. Slow service.

I have been here 4-5 times with family for good thai food. Good portions and tastes really good. No complaints for food so far. Only thing lack is, service. Very slow service. Not once but every time i have been here. Once, they also forgot to bring half of our order.  Extensive menu for salads, mains and drinks. Good thai food. So, i would recommend for all those craving for thai food.

The King of Siam will not be pleased

I like thai food, but siam kitchen makes me think twice about entering another thai restaurant again. Food is okay here, but what's glaring is the serving size. One serving is not enough for one person. And for its price (around $8$-15 per dish), i think it is a very expensive restaurant.  So, if you want to eat here, ready your pocket and order 2 dishes for each person.

Great Thai Food

See the full review with pictures here.

We had lunch here after church because I was craving their tom yum soup.   I’m not really a fan of tom yum soup, never got the whole hot and spicy thing going on. But their seafood tom yum soup [$7.90] is really complex and not overloaded with basil. One should note that their seafood tom yum soup is not equivalent to the chicken tom yum soup – we ordered both (they come in huge bowls, mind you; you should order one bowl to two people) and were so surprised that it wasn’t just the same soup base with different meats added. The chicken one is a quite bit lighter, leaning towards the poh teck side.   It was the first time trying green curry for me – and theirs is extremely creamy and flavourful. I have no idea why it’s green though, seeing as it’s like a sweeter, more coconutty counterpart to our red nyonya curries. We had jasmine rice to go with this.   We also had the pad thai, and they were slightly overzealous with the tangerine juice this time. Usually it’s perfect here, in any case, much better than Thai Express or other Thai chains.   One of my new go-to things to order at Siam Kitchen is the wok fried kailan with salted fish. It’s fried with garlic and chilli and extremely fragrant and not that spicy, which was a plus since we were already experiencing a sensory overload from the tom yum soup and the fiery pad thai.   L had the butterfly juice – a purple rose-lime concoction that’s pretty but somewhat disturbingly named.   The restaurant is very spacious and usually has lots of seats, probably because NeX has so many restaurants. I’d definitely recommend trying the food here instead of queueing at Din Tai Fung. They’ve got good Thai roasted chicken and also grilled stingray, although their stingray is nothing like the Singaporean sambal kind so don’t be misled by the pictures in the menu.

Beware the "buffet"

Siam Kitchen is fine if you need a quick fix for some basic Thai standards (pineapple rice, green curry) but that's as much as I can vouch for them.

Save yourself time and money by avoiding the ala carte buffet entirely.

While the range of dishes in the buffet is small, the most glaring point is the concerted effort by the staff to restrict the number of rounds one can go for. This was achieved by "fulfilling" your second (& subsequent) round of orders either very slowly or not even at all.
The polite staff even managed to overlook our empty glasses.

After enough time had been wasted and enough frustration had built up, we walked over to the cashier to pay the bill instaedof asking for service.
I brought up the issue of tardy service to the manager who nonchalantly brushed it off as typical Friday night crowds. He even added that they did not accept any more "buffet" patrons for the evening.
Strange statement coming from him, since there was still a good stream of patrons waiting to enter. Maybe these were wiser patrons who had learnt not to choose the "buffet" option.
So much for an apology.

All in all, please learn from my S$56 lesson and do not choose the "buffet" option from a service set-up that is utterly not designed to cope with offering a buffet.
Just pick a dish ala carte, eat and go.
