Welcome to Siam Niyom.
Siam Niyom translated to English means the favourite foods of Siam. Siam is the previous name of our country Thailand.
Growing up from different regions of Thailand, Siam Niyom was founded by the combination of different traditional Thai cuisines and the verities of flavours that Thailand has to offer.
All our dishes are selected from every region of Thailand , such as Gai Tod from Hat Yai in the South of Thailand. Kao Soi from the North. Tiger Cry from North East region of E sarn and Nua Tom Kati from the central region.
From years of practice and observation of Thai traditional cooking, we have learnt and developed the skills to prepare true authentic Thai dishes.
Using fresh ingredients such as herbs and spices is the secrete to creating the best quality culinary experience.
We love to bring together the different taste and recipes that Thailand has created, from traditional dishes that were Siam’s most favoured to Thailand’s most treasured dishes.
We are Thai at heart, so we say to you
“Tan Hai Aroi” which translates to Bon Appétit.
Our Chefs have over 20 years of experience in traditional Thai cooking, with previous experience in major Thai and Native Thai restaurants in Thailand, Singapore, Switzerland and the UK.
