We love Thai Siam. The place is simply decorated, but the food is delicious! I do not know his name, but there is a nice gentleman who is always there when we drop by, he knows our names and can remember our favorite dishes! Everyone there is friendly. They even know us when we call for a pick up order! Do they know us by caller ID or by the sound of our voice? Do not know. They have a fundraising dinner once a year in August, and they donate to different charities - some local and some international. Once I had a pick up order, but could not leave the car. I had two sleeping children. I called the restaraunt and they walked my order out to my car. They did this with a geniune smile. I always leave a generous tip. We live in West SEattle now, but still drive to Ballard just to eat there. LOVE this place!
