Indianapolis – Siam Square
Last Sunday my daughter and I went to Fountain Square to shoot some photos. I asked her what she wanted for lunch & without hesitation she said “Siam Square“. Having never been to this restaurant I was happy to go based on the glowing feedback from friends.
Note, all images in this review are from the Internet because we actually left the cameras in the car while we ate & the lighting did not work for phone pictures. Rookie mistake for sure.
The menu at Siam Square is pretty typical of any Thai restaurant including lunch specials during the week. I’ve wanted to try a Curry dish for a while now. I’m usually a Pad Thai (chicken/pork) guy but I was feeling a little adventitious today.
My daughter ordered the Chicken Pad Thai and, after a brief discussion with our server, I went for the Red Curry. I was not sure what to expect but sometimes you just have to throw caution to the wind.
I’m glad I took a chance because I was VERY impressed with the Red Curry. It was spicy (medium), sweet and had a lot of interesting flavors. The bamboo shoots and green beans were plentiful as was the thinly sliced chicken. Several Thai Basil leaves were mixed through the dish and they added a wonderful herbal flavor.
We’ve visited many Thai places this last year and the Pad Thai almost always is a little sweet (sometimes too sweet). The Pad Thai at Siam square had a nice “char/caramelization” mixed in and the noodles had a great texture. The Pad Thai has to be one of the best I’ve had to date.
Service was very attentive and the prices were on par with other Thai places in the Indy area. We spent some time exploring the Fountain Square District and identified several places to try next time we’re in the area. I think Duck Pin Bowling is on the agenda for the next visit!
