Who would have expected a great Thai Restaurant in the middle of the suburban wasteland of Manassas!! If you arrive via the rear parking lot (dumpsters, garbage, old pick-up trucks) you may be reminded of Tony Sopranos 'Budda Bing' Club. But keep on going, up the side ally. The front of the restaurant is a perfectly manicured Thai Garden and this really reflects the interior. the interior is cool, Spartan but lovely. Linen table clothes and napkins. I think that Thais who run restaurants in North American and who are often faced with a relatively unsophisticated clientele must be always tempted to keep things on the stove for too long. The result is a soggy and glutinous version of Thai food that is all too prevalent with dumbed down spiciness.
Siam Classic turns out just that - fresh, spicy, non-glutinous Thai food. The crab cakes and shrimp dumplings were light, fresh and spicey. The accompanying sauces were equally light and tangy. Pad Thai was the best I have ever had and I have had this dish in six different countries including Thailand. The seafood salad was super fresh and so hot it makes the back of your neck wet. Green papaya salad was fresh and crunchy. Service was great. Eat here and enjoy one of the everyday wonders of globalization! A great Thai restaurant in Manassas, Virginia! AJW

My husband and I stumbled upon Siam Classic shortly after moving Manassas a couple years ago - it's now our favorite Thai Restaurant (and our friends agree)! The menu features a wide selection, and it's tough to decide what to order. The food is always good, and the owner is nice. We dine here at least 1x/month, and have ordered take out a couple times. The restaurant is small and cozy, and there is never a wait.

Just a warning - the spicy rating is 1-10, and while both of us love spicy, we are usually satisfied with 6 (we've ordered 7 a couple times, but find it's too spicy to actually enjoy the flavor with nose running and mouth on fire!).

It's oh kay at best. The Mai Thai's tasted like they used cheap syrupy liquids instead of fruit juices. That wasn't cool. The Panang Curry was asked to be made spicy and there was no spice at all. As for the tofu in one dish, it was super gross- it was actually a struggle to chew. That made me physically ill. It's sad because we were taking a friend who'd never had Thai to try it. Her dish with chicken was better. Her's was much spicier than asked for. They seem to not listen well to what visitors want.

As for the staff, they are incredibly nice.

Small hole in the wall I found back in 2010. Great Thai food! The service is hit or miss when you go but nothing major

Fresh, feel good Thai food. Cozy restaurant with attentive staff. White linen yet casual feel. On a cold winter day, we love to be warmed by the spice of this great food!
