Siam Orchid is the best and most reasonably priced Thai restaurant in the Greater-Cincinnati- Northern Kentucky area. The restaurant serves authentic Thai and Chinese food. The owner-chef and his wife, who come from Thailand, are very nice people. The restaurants interior displays authentic Thai decorations.
Siam Orchids dishes are not spicy unless you request it. Most of the dinner entrees cost $8.50. Lunch is served Tuesday-Saturday and theres a lunch buffet on Sundays. Siam Orchid is closed on Mondays.
The best dish there is the Chicken Pad Thai: rice noodles, sliced chicken breast, crushed peanuts, egg, scallions, bean sprouts, and a sweet but mildly spicy sauce.
The best appetizers are the crab puffs (crab pasty with cream cheese) and chicken Satay (chicken strips with a delicious peanut sauce).
With the food so good and the prices so low, my wife and I eat there virtually every week.
Pros: inexpensive, tasty, friendly atmosphere
Cons: countryside location
