Siam House is a very popular haunt of local residents. It is conveniently located in a quiet street in a very residential part of Colombo, close to all the major hotels. The restaurant is a converted old house and has many separate dining spaces that afford privacy to diners. It is tastefully decorated and quite impressive. The prices are very reasonable (on the low side of “moderate”). The service, although not bad, could be better! Some of the staff do not seem to be very conversant as to what is on offer.

The menu is very extensive. All of the usual Thai favourites are available. The dishes featuring seafood are great. There are many cuttle fish, fish, crab and prawn preparations. Some of the favourites amongst patrons are; Meat/fish Penang (red curry), meat/fish Kheaw Wan (green curry), Deep fried or steamed whole Garupa, spicy mango salad, spicy papaya salad, roasted beef salad, Suriyaki soup and various pai noodles dishes.

The desserts menu features a few run-of-the-mill desserts. Liquor, beer and cocktails are also available. The restaurant can seat about 225 of which 175 seats are in air-conditioned areas.

Considering the low prices, the Siam House is an excellent value proposition. The relaxed atmosphere and the good food, which is different from the food served at the numerous Chinese restaurants in the City, make it a good choice for a  meal away from home.

    Eating Out

    We love our food, we love to cook and we eat out a lot. We have travelled a great deal (at last count more than 50 countries) and we always indulge in eating out very frequently when we are on the road.  

    This page is our (my wife and myself) effort to give you the benefit of our opinion of as many Eating Out locations in Sri Lanka as possible. We have eaten at least 2 times in each of the restaraunts reviewed.
    We have rated all locations on Quality of Food, Service and Ambience. Each location has also been given an Overall Rating. A scale of 1 to 5 has been used, 1 being poor and 5 being excellent.  
    Pricing estimates are based on each person having 2 courses (out of starter, main meal and dessert) as well as a soft drink. Liquor and coffee prices are excluded. Pricing is categorised as follows:
    Inexpensive: Up to $12 p.p.Moderate: $12 to $25 p.p.Expensive: $25 to $35 p.p.
    Very Expensive:  Above $35 p.p.

    The above does not include taxes (12% at present) and service charges (usually 10%).
    Please do not hesitate to let us know what you think by clicking on comments.

    Happy Eating!!

    Best regards,
