If there’s one word that really sums up Siam Bistro, it’s authentic. Using a combination of real Thai spices, fresh local produce and generations of family recipes, the chef brings the taste of Thailand to the enchanting village of Braunton.
Guests can start with the likes of gai satay – juicy chicken satay skewers – and crispy tempura vegetables. Perhaps follow with pad nam pung – honeyed duck served with a choice of plain, egg-fried or sticky coconut rice – or the everpopular pad Thai, comprising thin rice noodles and crunchy peanuts cooked in a nutty tamarind sauce. Round off your meal with a unusual yet delectable dessert of sweet coconut sorbet and Thai custard. Siam Bistro is a great spot for foodies looking to dine somewhere smart and authentic. Attractively decorated in bright, inviting colours, the interior combines modern chic style with characterful touches like the large map of South East Asia that covers one wall.
This enticing bistro attracts a steady stream of sport enthusiasts from nearby Saunton Golf Club. With such close proximity to Saunton Sands, Croyde Bay and the iconic Woolacombe Beach, it’s also a favourite destination for local surfers and holidaymakers. It isn’t just the location that makes this a go-to eatery – the relaxed atmosphere, amiable staff and consistent high-quality food all play their part.
