Popped in there for lunch. Very unassuming place with authentic Thai cuisine. Excellent prices for lunch which includes two spring rolls and a yummy Thai dessert.

This restaurant is located in a street shopping plaza and is a family run place. Excellent quality food and friendly service. Since I am a Vegetarian, they made whatever I wanted, without any fish oil and animal products. Excellent dessert! Highly recommended.

We have eaten here on several occasions and the main reason is the green papaya salad. Is it the best we ever had, no, but its the best we ever had outside of Thailand!

I have enjoyed Cafe de Siam for more than 8 years! We get their lunch menu items to go a lot as we both work from home, and we love to bring home Panang Chicken and have it left over for at least one more meal. My husband loves their pad thai with shrimp. The crispy spring rolls that come... More

Plenty of parking and the restaurant is not too big or small. The food is always very good and service to match. The menu is flexible, so you can ask for variations on, for example, the 'fixed' lunch menu. Serving size good although you may still need to take some left-overs home!

Tucked away in a strip mall on busy Hillsborough Avenue, Cafe de Siam is easy to miss. It's worth the extra effort to find it, though, and parking is plentiful. As you enter, you're enveloped in lush ferns and other tropical plants, a pleasing transition. The place is clean, well-lit and tastefully decorated. High ceilings, about 12 tables, cordial service.... More

Our family has been coming here for years very happily when we visit our parents in Tampa. Just ate here again last week after a long time away and was impressed again with how very delicious all the dishes are. The Tom Yum is so flavorful, the crispy duck always impresses, and no meal is complete without the black sticky... More

We have been coming to Cafe de Siam for over 10 years and find the quality and taste excellent. The level of spice is spot on without overwhelming the taste. We usually have Green Papaya Salad, Penang Chicken Curry, Pork Pad Won Sen, a side of sautéed mixed vegetables in brown sauce. We strongly recommend leaving room for dessert -... More

My daughter picked up some food for me since my plane was arriving late. The spring rolls were so good even after I heated them up. I had veggie pad thai. The taste was great and the portion huge. I had enough for 3 meals.
