Our dad, Raymond Siri, started selling coffee on the streets of Bangkok when he was 12 years old and his family didn’t have the money to continue to support his schooling (he was one of eleven kids). He put himself through night school to get his high school diploma. That grit and entrepreneurial spirit never left him. He came to the U.S. in the 60’s, waited tables, and together with our mom, Sue Siri, worked at and eventually franchised a 7-Eleven. He also owned and worked long hours at a Chinese-Thai take out place in Virginia, and in his final chapter, partnered in a Thai restaurant in DC in 2007, ultimately taking it over at the young age of 60 and turning it into a successful small business. That restaurant, Siam House, was his pride and joy and is ONE OF THE BEST THAI RESTAURANT 2021 in DC award by Washington City Paper and also RECOMMENDED by Restaurant Guru 2021.
Our dad passed in 2017 when liver cancer took him way too soon, but we know he would be thrilled with this honor. He loved nothing more than chatting with his customers, dreaming up new specials for the menu and working alongside his wonderful staff to make the Siam House experience a friendly, warm and inviting one.
Today, our mom, Sue, and our awesome Siam House family continue to work hard to realize our dad’s vision. We are proud to offer generous portions of authentic Thai fare in a relaxed, cozy, happy place. We are grateful to our loyal customers for helping us for many years, especially through this pandemic, and we are energized to continue to provide delicious Thai food for many years to come.
With over 50 years of experience cooking in Thai restaurants, our chefs are excited to present their vision to all of our guests. Our friendly and committed staff will ensure you have a fantastic experience with us.
Our restaurant is available for private events: business lunches, dinners, cocktail receptions, and more. We would love to discuss how to be a part of your next event.
