Looking for review on Siam Garden Thai Restaurant on Nimitz Hwy. Would appreciate any input, what's their specialty etc. TIA

  1. I wrote about this place a couple times. I have always enjoyed it. It is packed at lunchtime. Late night it turns into a Thai karaoke experience as well. Try anything, everything was delicious.

    1. Over the years a number of people have mentioned Siam Garden as at least above average to very good thai food. It's still on my bucket list.

      Last night I went to Thai Kitchen in Waipahu. I need to reveal that the people I was with were friends of the owners, but it seemed like half the people in the restaurant were friends of the owners, just that kind of place. The food was very very good.

        I liked the fact they had Thai programming on the TV and many of the patrons were Thai themselves. I found it really fun and great food. Let's go! :-)

            I don't think I can commit just yet. Gotta see how my knee surgery goes/recovery since it's this Friday. The worst part is not being able to drink/ eat anything before the afternoon surgery! I am hoping I feel good enough to get Teddy's or El Mariachi in the evening! I like both and have not had the Kaneohe Teddy's. Of course when I don't feel good I love Sumo Ramen and order tons of stuff for only 2 people!

          Have you tried Thai Lao at Kapolei? If you haven't, then, you should whenever you travel to Leeward side....

            I'm rarely that far West, but I will definitely keep it in mind.

            Slowly but surely more and more decent places to eat are appearing in Kapolei. Hopefully most of them will be able to keep their doors open.

        3. Visited the restaurant and ordered roasted eggplant salad, stuffed chicken wings and red curry. They are all good, but I prefer the roasted eggplant salad from Thai Lao in Kapolei. It has a very distinct roasted taste. The curry was also delicious. The restaurant itself is very clean and servers are very friendly.
