I was disappointed by Giant of Siam. After reading so many glowing reviews, and hankering after decent Thai food, I traveled a fair way to try it earlier this year. When I got there it was nearly empty, so I thought I'd come to the wrong place, but it wasn't. The physical plant is nice enough, with comfortable seating and decor. The maitre d' was pleasant and so was my waiter. The service was actually quite good, as I was never rushed and yet the waiter was perfectly attentive. So it was just the food, which was ok I suppose, but nothing extraordinary. My basis for comparison are the Thai restaurants of NYC, NJ and Boston, where I've had many wonderful meals. I must admit, having gone a while back, I forget exactly what I ordered. I know I had an appetizer, soup and main course. I think I had the coconut soup, which was a strange rendition, and not at all what I was accustomed to. And the main course too had an oddness about it. I completely forget the appetizer, but my memory is it was pretty good, the best part of the meal. Tea was nice, and I was served some fruit or somesuch for dessert, gratis, a very nice touch. Yet somehow the check was more than I expected. Oh well.
This is our fourth trip to Giant of Siam. The food and the service were wonderful. The place was packed but they served us promptly and they treated us like we were there only customer. It was well worth the ride from Hollis. I urge all the foodies out there to give this place a try. You won't be disappointed.
the food was good, lots of flavor. the menu has a lot to choose from
prices were extremely reasonable. the decorations are spartan but adequate
I enjoyed it and will go back again and again. i got right in got a table and ate well..
the only thing I don't like is that there really is not anything for a kids menu. My kids don't do thai and there are really no options for them. When they are out of town with grandma, the wife and i are at the giant of Siam!
I went to this restaurant last week, it was a Sunday afternoon around 4pm.
The place is spacious, clean and adorable. Seems to be a family operated business, which I like. We ordered a bunch of appetizers as well as en trees, all were fresh, fast and delicious! The menu is well priced and the staff is super friendly. I will definitely be going back!
For years I've been meaning to try Giant of Siam, and now that I've been there once I wish I had gone sooner. The quiet ambience of this lovely restaurant will easily make you forget that you're sitting in noisy downtown Nashua. My mother recommended the Thai iced tea -- sweetened black tea served with coconut milk -- and I was not disappointed. The menu is extensive, which can make it difficult to decide what you want, but you'll be happy with whatever you choose. Make sure you leave room for dessert -- I recommend the coconut custard. Check out Giant of Siam, sure to become a new favorite.
