New Thai Restaurant Opens In Fayetteville

Siam Cuisine

There's a new Thai restaurant in South Fayetteville and we're not upset about it.

  • Where: It's called Siam Cuisine, and it is located at 318 Archibald Yell Blvd in the space that House of Taste previously occupied. It's a cozy space that has also been home to Twin Kitchen and Taste of Thai in the past. 
  • Delights: We've yet to try it but the menu looks ideal for a traditional Thai restaurant. Classics like Pad Thai and Massaman Beef curry are there, among other noodle, rice, and curry dishes. Siam Cuisine is open Tuesday - Sunday 11a-2p for lunch and 4:30-8:30p for dinner.
