Siam First's creative chefs pack passion into a menu populated with traditional dishes prepared from fine ingredients and fresh spices. Savory roast duck floats on a stream of red curry ($16.95), and pad thai noodles lay in wait for crunchy peanuts ($7.95+).

Kick back and celebrate a successful culinary journey with sweet fried ice cream ($4.50) or mango sticky rice ($4.50).
Clad in a red cap and a white uniform, Siam First’s Chef Derm traces the surface of ginger root, lemongrass, and a chili pepper, expounding upon their health benefits on TV Diner. Ginger root is good for heartburn, and chili pepper helps digestion, he remarks, before showing his Thai twist on a New England favorite—Maine lobster.
Beneath Siam First’s gabled roof, Chef Derm and his team crank out Thai specialties that mingle local ingredients such as Maine lobster with spices and herbs imported directly from the land of smiles. Below small, hanging lights and glowing wall sconces, tables populate with duck and snapper in thai basil, mango curry, and garlic-ginger sauces. While noshing on dumplings or crab rangoon, guests can peek into Siam's giant aquarium, rife with fish, green plants, and Jacques Cousteau’s long-lost car keys.
