Thai Siam (West End, Glasgow) : Review

V: 31st January 2020


Tonight I couldnt be bothered making something I had in the flat, so I went walking and didnt really know what style of food I wanted for dinner.

I have passed here many times and never went in, so tonight I did that.

Looking Around

We were welcomes and shown to the tables, the staff were very friendly and inside was very nice.

It has a very cosy and relaxing atmosphere, and the music is at a perfect level.

The Food

I don’t have Thai food very often so I didn’t know what to select, so I randomly picked something.

Main Course

Creamy Chicken Curry (Gang Panang) £10.90

I did have coconut rice with this, but I forgot to take a photo and also take note of the cost (sorry I was hungry).

I asked the waitress how spicy this was, and told her I like just a little kick and she said she would let the chef know.

This smelled so good, so I started trying the rice on its own and it was really good. If you haven’t had coconut rice before I recommend you try it where ever you go.

I tried the chicken and the sauce on its own, and it was really nice…flavours all worked really good together.

If I was being fussy, the chicken could have been a little more tender….

Visit Overall :

Overall my experience tonight was good, the meal was good and really nice flavours. The chicken was my little issue, if it was more tender that would have been perfect.

Portion sizes were OK to, but maybe just £1 or £2 more costly than they should….well that’s my opinion.

I will take another visit here again, and try something else.

I have been here before but it was long ago, so it was time to come back and see how it is.

Looking Around

Here has a cool look to it, and inside at the back has an even more funky look to it with the decor. Tonight I was sitting outside, so I could people watch.

The Food…

I couldn’t remember what I ordered last time so I just chanced it and selected something.

Starter

Sweet and Sour Chicken & Rice
Crispy chicken stir-fried with sweet and sour sauce served with peppers, pineapple, tomatoes, and onions.

On arrival this looked very nice, so it was time to taste.

The rice was perfectly cooked and very nice, the sweet and sour chicken was also very nice and very tender.

My only issue is that I felt there wasn’t enough chicken tonight, and for the cost of this dish…hmmm maybe just a little more would have been perfect.

Overall

Overall tonight was a mixed night, the food like last time was very nice but I felt that there could have been a little more chicken in my dish but remember thats my opinion.

My Girlfriend also didn’t get the order she ordered, but she ate it anyway as she was hungry.

Yen Oriental Restaurant (Glasgow) : Review

28 Tunnel Street
Glasgow G3 8HL

V: 13th July 2018      T:  0141 847 0110    W: glasgowrotunda.com/yen/

Child Friendly: Yes (well behaved kids)      Accepts: Cash & Card


I spotted that Yen did an “all you can eat” Sushi night which cost around £18 per person (excluding drinks) so I thought lets try it as I love Sushi.

I have never been here so this was my first time, and on entering its very nice inside.

The waitress tried to explain how it works, but still I was a little confused and just crossed many boxes. When she saw it, she then explained again which made sense…so….

You get 7 rounds to order food (not really all you can eat, but you should be full by at least round 4 or 5).

I only managed 2 rounds, but the first was a big one as I got a lot.

The Food…

This was a lot of Sushi and very very filling, the last part for me Maki I didnt really enjoy that much but I did really like the hot food and the Nigiri.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5

Overall

Overall I cant really fault here, was it value for money….for me no but if you get more Sushi then yes it is!!!

The sushi was all very fresh, and very tasty so if you love a lot of sushi then check out the unlimited sushi nights at Yen.
