Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Never fails to deliver. The food is always superb, the vibes are great and the staff friendly. The owner is a really nice guy as well! I had the honey duck and it was the perfect balance of sweet to savory and a really generous...portion as I couldn't finish it! The cost was quite reasonable for what we got, especially as everything usually costs so much these days.More

We ordered takeaway and after spending £114 for 4 adults and 2 children, firstly we were missing a main meal so had to call and reordered so the driver had to leave there meal to go and get, the portions were small, and food on...some of the mains were greasy. Overall we were disappointed especially as the reviews seemed to be very good and was the reason we chose there rather then Squires fish and chips.More

This was our first time visiting the bistro and would definitely recommend for anyone who is a fan of Thai food to go and give it a try . The food was excellent. Service was good apart from one waitress she was kind but very...forgetful …. We had asked for some more drinks which we never received and the manager came round to see if everything was ok and he served our drinks . We had the same problem with the waitress when paying our bill as well . This was the only reason I didn’t not score it 5 starsMore

We were recommended this place by a few people so decided to book in yesterday. When we got in, it's not really what we were expecting, quite hustle and bustle, rather than a cute bistro. We were seated in an alley, near the toilet, where...the staff were walking through, which made us very uncomfortable and we were quite exposed. The food was so, so average. We've had better from our local Chinese. The noodles were basic and the other food we got was just so average. After leaving, our mouths we're both Left dry and tingly from the amount of salt and msg that was in the food. We enjoy eating out places, but the price here for what we actually got was extortionate. Wouldn't go here again. Nor would I recommend it to anybody. The best thing about this place was the rum bar around the corner.More

We had really been looking forward to dinner at the Siam Bistro after reading lots of positive reviews. We quite enjoyed it but not as much as we had hoped. From the outside the newly extended facade looks the part. When we arrived, the service...was attentive and we felt well looked after but as the evening got busier, we seemed to get ignored and when waiting to pay at the end we sat for what felt like an age just waiting for them to come and take payment, it was odd - bit of an evening of two halves. The food was fairly tasty. I think lowering the brightness of the lighting might also help as it felt quite bright which isn't the best for creating a relaxed atmosphere. Maybe we were just unlucky, would we return? Maybe.More

On arrival we brought a surprise birthday cake for our family member. The staff were kind enough to put it behind the bar for after the meal. 10 minutes after this, the manager came over to inform us that the cake couldn’t be presented due...to it being homemade and the risk of allergies. This was a chocolate fudge cake in sealed containers and may we add this restaurant serves nuts in many dishes. The food was average but nothing special. Throughout the evening 2 glasses smashed on separate tables. Several waiters were aware of this but failed to clean it up despite continuous attempts to make them aware. At the end of the evening, the manager changed his mind and said we can have the cake. They were aware that it was a surprise, however brought the plates out first with no cake, ruining the surprise. It then took 15 minutes to wait for the cake whilst staring at the staff members talking amongst themselves. It’s fair to say the evening was ruined from this and we won’t be coming back.More

Underwhelming second time round. We first came back in 2020, and the food was authentic and flavours on point. It has been a talking point with my partner and we knew when we came back to Devon for our mini break away, we just had...to come to the thai again, having had such good experience the last time. This time round, seems a massive drop in quality? The food tasted bland. And the prices aren’t cheap either. i don’t mind paying higher prices but I expect top notch food for it. Portion of rice very small, massaman was super runny, like they had watered it down to make more sauce but had diluted the flavour? Didnt feel authentic. No potatoes, no cashews or peanuts. Pad thai - again didnt have much flavour to it. Satay barely tasted like peanuts. I looked at photos of the food from 2020 and it’s like they’ve either changed owners or the chef. Or maybe they’re just penny pinching on ingredients these days? If i could liken this meal to any song - Shania Twain’s “that don’t impress me much!” comes to mind!!More

Visited this restaurant one evening for a family meal and it didn’t disappoint. Food was amazing, the restaurant was clean and tidy. We all ordered different dishes from the menu so we could taste of varied range of what they had on the menu which...didn’t disappoint. I would even go to say it was my favourite meal of the week during my week’s visit to Braunton. This is a must goto!More
