Thai Siam serves hundreds of Christmas meals

Thai Siam on 15th Ave. NW was busy yesterday. From noon until two, they offered free turkey meals to those who wouldn’t otherwise have a nice Christmas dinner. Ott, the owner, tells us they served about 800 meals, which adds up to thirty 25-pound turkeys, 150 pounds of meatloaf, 200 pounds of mashed potatoes, 150 pounds of dressing, lots of pumpkin pie, sweet corn, cran berry sauce, cookies, and beverages. Ott tells us that everyone also received a turkey salad to take home. (Disclosure: Thai Siam is a sponsor of MyBallard.)

I felt like I ate all that myself yesterday. ;-)

The more I hear about Thai Siam, the more I like them. They will be my next restaurant destination.

Wow, now that's a lot of food! Very generous, Thai Siam! :-)
I have yet to try this place but you can bet I'm planning a Thai Siam stop!

That's very good karma for them and for Ballard!

I've liked Thai Siam food for years and I always like seeing Ott. We eat there practically once a week unless I'm feeling less lazy than usual one weekend and end up cooking. A couple years ago I think they got a new cook because their food went up a notch in spiciness which I think is an improvement. Oh yeah – plus they're great neighbors and give back to the community. But we really like their food too.

Aside from having really yummy food, Thai Siam does an excellent job giving back to the community. This event was in addition to their summer fundraiser feed. Bravo Thai Siam.

awesome! what a gift to the community….

that said, i hope the people that ate were alone or in need, etc and not folks taking advantage of the kindness of this business.

way to go, thai siam!

I'll be a broken record now, but Ott and the Thai Siam crew are so wonderful, generous and kind. I was addicted and went 2-3 times a week when we lived around the corner. Now that I'm a few blocks away I have curbed myself to twice a month–because of the waist line, not the food!

Anyway, it's solid Thai food and if you haven't been there yet, you should go. They are a true community gem.

I highly recommend the Chiang Mai noodles (I get it w/ chicken). It's not on the lunch menu, but if you ask for it, you can get it at lunch, not just dinner.

Ott is the best! He is amazingly friendly and the food at Thai Siam is the best Thai cuisine I have found in Seattle. Though the prices are very reasonable our family only gets the chance to step in once or twice a year but Ott always remembers me, my daughter and my husbands names! All the people involved in operating this restaurant display fantastic feats of philanthropy and care for people. It makes everything they cook taste even better.
