Excellent Have been here several times both eat in and takeaway.
Delightful staff, wonderful fresh food, absolutely delicious authentic thai food. Not the quickest but it’s all v freshly cooked so worth the wait. Sit back, enjoy a beer from the lovely waiters and enjoy the reassuringly decent waitleips6/01/2019
Wow We live in ilfracombe but decided to try takeaways from further a girls so we chose Siam as our Valentines take away dinner, and WOW! Impressed does not come close to how it actually tasted! Amazing food, my new favourite take away place! Thank you Siam xHayley Alcock2/14/2021
Top marks. Wonderful service 10/10 for service. On the ball. Polite and felt valued.
Amazing food. We would love to return.
We travelled 6 hours here for our little break and found you via google on arrival. Absolutely amazing. So impressed.mrsdjhld7/23/2020
Nice but not if you’re hungry. This resteraunt is clean and very nicely presented. It’s got a nice menu and service is friendly. The food itself was lovely but we felt that it was a little bit stingy in terms of the amount of meat used and the size of portions. The salt and pepper squid as a starter actually contradicts this judgement with a plentiful amount of delicious, crispy, perfectly cooked bites; the fish cakes were nice but there were only three small pieces. The stir fried dishes and curry which we had were beautifully cooked but we were all left wanting a bit more for the price which we had paid.
It’s nice in many ways; as Thai fans we were hoping to do two visits here during our holiday but we won’t be which is a shame.Annie R8/04/2018
Top Thai Really enjoyed our lunch visit. Friendly service and fantastic food. 3 of us went for 2 course lunch at 9.95. Bargain for such tasty food. Veg and chicken tempura options to start were great. Beautifully cooked & a little bit of crunchy noodles on the side with chilli sauce. Great stuff. I had ginger chicken main which was v tasty. Daughter went for belly pork and wifey the prawn dish. All with fluffy jasmine rice. Son went for squid noodles which were v tasty. Kind of a satay feel with peanut in. One deep fried ice cream pud to end. Lovely lovely meal.Andrew-Leakey7/26/2019
Quality Takeaway We’re on holiday here and first time we came across it looking for a takeaway. Absolutely fabulous food. Just had another, different dishes, same exceptional quality. Highly recommended.Darren F8/04/2018
Easy 5 star. Super amazing By far the best Thai food we have eaten. I had beef rump Massaman curry, outstanding. Covid guidelines are observed and well managed , we felt very safe eating here. We will return again, and again. Wonderful staff, so polite and helpful. A super little gem in BrauntonDee S9/17/2020
Excellent Food & Service As a family we have been visiting Braunton for the last many years. For some reason we have never found the Siam Bistro.. I think it has been open for about four years… our experience was excellent… the owner couldn’t do enough for us … the menu was extensive and all four of us couldn’t fault the food…. recommend to always book a table as the restaurant is small but has a nice atmosphere…..NDFarmer019/05/2018
Party of six. Friendly and prompt COVID aware environment. All bar one of the starters were excellent, one average in flavour but good quality nevertheless. All of of the mains were delicious and authentic, using fresh ingredients. Would definitely recommend, especially the Traditional Thai Stir Fry with fried rice and the salmon dishes.Koi Fish10/21/2020

Fresh and spicy A really delicious Thai meal with great service.
We had the Tom Yam and the Tom Ka soup to start followed by the Pad Thai and Pad Kee Mao for main course.
Every dish felt really fresh with the vegetable ingredients that had been added still slightly al dente, exactly as they should be. The Pad Kee Mao was just the right side of too spicy with fresh red chilli – again, exactly as it should be.
All accompanied by chilled Singha beer. Lovely.MightySkiddaw5/16/2019
Amazing takeaway Great food…. just GREAT food!
Honeymooned in Thailand 5yrs ago & fell in love with the food so always seek out Thai places & generally compare to the ‘real’ thing… and by Buddha this place compares amazingly well!
Could quite happily eat here all holiday and will definitely be back when we return next year..
And was very pleased to find the take out was served in fully recyclable packaging with not a scrap of plastic in sight…brilliant !
Mouth Wateringly Delicious Food First time visit to Siam Bistro, the food & service were amazing. Set in the old cafe in Braunton, this establishment has been beautifully refurbished & is a must visit restaurant. As a group of 4, 2 of us are fussy vegetarians but there was plenty of choice having the tempura & spring rolls, followed by the Masaman (yummie!) I would recommend the coconut rice which was not overpowering & complimented the dish. Seriously mouth watering & I could eat the whole lot again now. Advisable to book but a takeaway service is available too. Can’t believe we have taken so long to visit & will be back again very soon.julie774679/21/2018
Worth every penny In the spirit of less is more. Superb, just superb! You won’t be disappointed based on our experience of the food and service provided. Go book it if you love excellent Thai cuisine.Steve R6/16/2018
Delicious authentic cuisine, served with a smile. Amazing food cooked by Thai chefs, and a very high quality service. They accomodate all eaters (vegan, veg, GF etc).Sadie C12/10/2018
Great flavour and fresh A delicious Thai meal (Tom Yum, Sea Bass with Tamarind Sauce, Som Tam). It was great to have dishes which are my favourites available – and everything was fresh and well cooked, with good flavour.
Service was very good – I think the people who run it put a lot of effort in to try to get dishes prepped to time and out to the table fresh. They also put a lot of effort to get ingredients which often aren’t available locally if at all possible – and that made a big difference to how things tasted.
We also got really good advice on things to do in the local area. Thanks!Fern_Fronds1/21/2020
HOW LUCKY WE ARE TO LIVE IN BRAUNTON My Family had a fantastic Takeaway this week. It was FABULOUS!!!
We did not have to wait. The Prawn Crackers were an added bonus to the meal.Mick C7/18/2020Darren Fletcher8/23/2018
Great food and friendly staff We came for an evening meal with friends , a bit concerned as one friend not keen on “spicy food” ! No worries though as the owner pointed out the “spicy” ratings ( not plain “hot” as in curry!) and appropriate selections made all round .
We ordered up small main dishes to share as starters – pad goong prawns and salt and peppered squid , then had individual mains – steamed sea bass ,vegetable and tofu noodles and Pad King duck with ginger ,plus a selection of different rices.
Only two of us managed desserts – sticky coconut rice wth fruit.
Lovely selection of wines and all reasonably priced – we drank red Rioja with the main meal and a selection of white and rose for aperitifsMuchilenia3/27/2019
Lovely food, beer & wine Lovely food, beer & wine in a perfect location in the centre of Braunton.
We read great reviews so booked for the 1st night of our holiday, the atmosphere was great, the food lovely & fantastic service.
The only feedback from my husband was that the Pad Thai could’ve done with a little bit more seasoning & vegetables. But my Massamam curry was beautiful!795aimeen7/19/2021
Fabulous Thai Food In North Devon We were staying with our friends and six dogs in nearby Saunton and did not want to leave the dogs in our rented accommodation. We love the local Chippy but wanted a change. We ordered a take away. And, we were blown away….lovely satay and bitesize spring rolls followed by beautiful green and red curry. I was so impressed that it all came in recyclable or compostable packaging. So good we had another take away a couple of days later……and once again great food, absolutely no complaints.Janice E10/23/2019
Absolutely fantastic food! Everything was extremely fresh and the flavours were excellent. We opted for takeaway and we were pleased to see biodegradable packaging had been used.Kayleigh Bingham7/23/2021

Delicious food and warm welcome Had a lovely dinner here. Mixed starter for two was yummy. We followed with a green curry and a spicy chicken dish. They were both excellent.
We will go back when in the area next year.Mandyxx6/27/2019
Great food. Open for dining but book ahead. Jungle curry is absolutely outstanding, although you remember it the next day… Mixed platter starters were the best I w had outside of ThailandJames Murray8/23/2020
Tasty and tasteful We came to Braunton for a long weekend, mooched around the town yesterday afternoon to see what was there and where we could possibly go for dinner. We decided on the Siam Bistro and called at 4.30pm to be told that the Bistro was fully booked, i explained it was just for two people and we could come early, the owner fitted us in at 6pm which was amazing. The service, venue and the food did not dissapoint the food was amazing and for what we consumed the bill was very fair too. I could imagine if you were here a bit later it might be very busy, but our best tip is to book in advance and go early, we had the starters for two, sweet and sour cod and sticky rice and salmon teriyaki noodles, fantastic, the flavours of all of the sauces were amazing. We might even go back again tomoz night as it was so delicious. Thankyoumargyandpete8/26/2018

Really tasty Thai food I am a big fan of Thai food, so was delighted to find the Siam Bistro while on holiday. Booked a table for a Monday evening and it was really busy. Had the vegetarian spring rolls to start and the vegetarian pad Thai for mains. Was really impressed with the flavours and the service. Will look forward to returning next year.SWH1009/09/2019
