Spicing up a strip mall


Best Thai (Washtenaw County)
Siam Kitchen

Out of several Ann Arbor-area Thai restaurants, Siam Kitchen rose to the top. It’s likely that the atmosphere and service have something to do with this longtime Ann Arbor restaurant being chosen by readers as a favorite.

Located in a strip mall, nestled between a T.J. Maxx and a bookstore, Siam Kitchen somehow still creates an intimate ambience. Brightly accented Thai decor and several separate dining areas achieve a simple, peaceful feel, even during the busiest hours. A variety of traditionally rooted Thai dishes are sure to suit a wide range of tastes, and spiciness runs from mild to very hot, ranked accurately to assure you don’t order a more fiery option that you can handle.

With attentive service, budget-minded prices, and options for every eater, Siam Kitchen remains a local favorite, overcoming it’s hidden strip-mall location and pared-down hours.
