- Made in Arden Hills
- Siam Thai
Siam Thai is a new locally-owned restaurant located in Arden Plaza at 3547 Lexington Avenue North. They offer a range of specialty Thai dishes, including Paneng Curry, Pepper Steak, and Sesame Chicken, among other dishes.
What are three menu items that reflect the heart of the restaurant?
Although the Pad Thai, Drunken Noodles, and Curry dishes are our top three sellers, we feel our hearts are reflected by our more authentic soups such as the Khoa Poon, Tom Yum, and the Pho Noodle soup.
When did you open?
Our very first day of opening was Monday, January 10th. Surprisingly, we were able to open quickly- in a month's time! Although our very first customer appeared to have a bad day and gave us a 1-star rating, we’re confident it wasn't because of our delicious food. Since then we've had almost all excellent reviews with a consistent 4.9+ star rating and great community feedback overall!
What inspired you to open?
Don, our owner, has a passion to share quality, authentic Thai dishes. Since the late 1990’s, he has been traveling to Thailand to train at intensive culinary camps in the mountains. Sharing authentic Thai recipes and traditional cooking practices is important to us.
What are three important things to know about Siam Thai?
- Our name originates from the former name the country of Thailand: Siam. Siam Thai means the "Kingdom of Thailand,” which honors the cultural background of the food we serve as well as Thailand’s own history.
- The idea of opening came to us during the time of the Dragon Boat Festival last year, which is held on the fifth day of the fifth month of the Chinese Lunar Calendar. Although our logo may look like a crown at first glance, if you take a closer look it's actually a boat modeled after the boats used in the festival. See the photo for the restaurant logo!
- All of our dishes are made fresh and from scratch. Because of this, we've had tremendous success in such a short amount of time. We want to express our sincere appreciation of the community's support and want all to know that we plan to be here for a very long time!
