The Siam Garden has been around for a long time, and I used to go quite regularly. However, I think it been almost ten years since I was last there. My avoidance was never intentional, but with the increasing and improving restaurant scene in Liverpool, my attention was drawn elsewhere. The Siam Garden always offered very well, and fresh traditional Thai food and don’t remember having a bad meal there. Thus as we took our seats at 7:30 on a Saturday evening, surrounded by empty tables, I was hoping the lack of other diners was not representative of the meal to come.
I’m delighted to say that our meal was perfect, the menu hasn’t changed much, or at all, over the last ten years, but that doesn’t detract from the quality, out stuffed chicken wing were tasty and exciting and out mains of a red duck curry and whole grilled fish were both very good. This was (I believe) the first and only Thai restaurant in Liverpool for some time, It isn’t anymore, but it’s still arguably the best. Chaophraya in town seems to draw flocks of people, yet the food isn’t comparable to the Siam Garden. I’ll make sure that it isn’t another ten years until my next visit.
