Siam is the modern city centre of Bangkok that is both chic and glamorous. To me, Siam represents a perfect mix of traditional and new cultures, where you can easily find many local cuisines, fashions and handmade silk products under brand new western style packaging.
I believe it is a myth that you can only get good and traditional food in the restaurants that operate in an old-school way with local, old-fashioned decor. This is certainly not true as I am sure you can definitely name one or two good and modern looking restaurants that serve really good traditional food, especially from some famous hotel brands.
Siam 28 aims to replicate the Siam spirit of Thailand in Hong Kong. The place is bright and chic, contrary to many Thai cuisine places which are full of wooden furniture and Buddha figures.
Being a restaurant review means this should not only be about the atmosphere. The food served here is of really high quality and is comparable to famous ones in Kowloon City.
As a Tom Yum fan, the Seafood Tomyum Noodle is my must-have item. Frankly speaking, there is still room for improvement in terms of dish display. But don't be fooled by the ordinary looks of the noodle, the soup quality is extraordinary. Tomyum soup is fully filled with different kinds of seafood, namely mussels, shrimp, squid and fish cakes.
Another good choice is the Hainan Chicken Rice. Unlike Singaporean style chicken rice, the thai version has a fresher taste that retains the original flavour of the chicken even when you eat them without the sauce. Sweet and spicy sauces are offered here that adds extra flavour for those looking for more excitement.
A good meal must end with a good dessert. Mango Sticky Rice is highly recommended if you are going to Siam 28. And why isn't there a picture? My friends ate it all the second it came to our table.
Note: At lunchtime, they offer buy 3 get 1 free lunch sets!
