We arrived at the restaurant at 1930 and were the only ones in the restaurant. This was on a Friday night. That should have set off alarm bells. We had eaten here once previously about five years ago and thought it was ok. The waiter was very friendly and we were seated. We started off with the nem. I had the shrimp version and my partner had the pork. Two dipping sauces accompanied the nem. The wrappers consisted of cheap wonton wrappers wrapped three layers deep and then fried past crispy to hard. We had about 80 percent wrapper and the remainder was a bland filling. Some of the worst I have ever eaten.
I then had their version Pad Thai. Things went from bad to worse. While the dish did have all of the usual components it was so over cooked that it was almost mush. Literally. The shrimp were dry and tough. One could barely distinguish bean sprouts from rice noodles. I could only eat about a third of it.
My partner had a bowl of their tom yum gai which she said was only just ok. Not spicy and needing some acidity to balance the coconut milk's sweetness.
At the end of our meal we were still the only patrons. There are many, many wonderful Asian restaurants in Paris but Blue Siam is light years away from that category. Give it a wide berth.
