Siam Square Thai Restaurant

We went here with a group of 6 to celebrate a birthday on a Saturday night. Located in a strip mall off of Windy Hill Road, you wouldn’t expect this place to be so nicely decorated on the inside. I love the stained concrete floors . They really add a nice touch. Candle lit tables make for a romantic evening, but it also works for groups too.

The Food: I always try to read any reviews of restaurants before I go there, so I know if there are any special dishes I should try OR avoid. Almost every one mentioned the cucumber flavored water. If there was supposed to be a cucumber flavor in the water, I didn’t taste it. We had basil rolls as an appetizer and the portion was just right for our size group. It also came with a tasty dipping sauce.

I think I was the only one in the group who enjoys really spicy food, so I ordered the ginger chicken medium spicy which was spiced just right. And I had plenty of leftovers to take home. I would like to go back to try the Green Papaya Salad, Coconut Chicken Soup, and the Siam Square Curry (they all sound pretty tasty to me).

The Service: Our server was excellent! He was always around if we needed something but not pushy. Most of the group didn’t want spicy food. He was very attentive about accomodating everyone’s special requests.

I also hear it’s a great lunch spot. So, if you work around the area definitely check it out.

Red Elephant Thai Cuisine

I drove past this place several times before getting the opportunity to sample their food. I wish I hadn’t waited so long to try it out. Their food and presentation were both fabulous.

Glen and I had tickets to an event at the new Cobb Energy Center later that evening and both of us were craving some Thai food. So, we decided to stop by the Red Elephant. It was early on a Saturday evening, about 6 pm, so it was no surprise the place wasn’t completely packed

I can’t remember what this place was before the Red Elephant, but the owners have done a great job of putting some nice touches into it that make it seem more authentic. And, although the space isn’t huge, they have done a good job to make the most of it without going overboard.

Not only is the food prepared excellently, the presentation itself is terrific. We started off with some fried dumplings. I think it was like pork sausage in a fried dumpling with a sweet and sour sauce. All the flavors complimented each other well. It was presented on a tray with 3 separate sections – each with its own dumpling.

For our entrees, I had the spicy lamb basil and Glen had chicken with mushrooms and pineapple. Both were equally tasty. I can’t believe how affordable the lamb was – $15 for 2 good size chops. I’m looking forward to going back to try the Panang curry.

If you go, be aware that they do not serve alcohol here.

The only downside: The nonstop ABBA soundtrack 😉
