Siam Noodles and Food to hold Grand Opening of new location

Siam Noodles and Food will open in its new location next weekend, starting with a grand opening on Saturday, April 8, at 11 a.m.

The restaurant will be located in the building formerly occupied by the Moose is Loose, on the Sterling Highway. Siam’s previous location closed Monday.

Siam owners Suwannasa Piwon and Phatcharin Apaipak said Tuesday that they were moving from renting to owning — and that they had their eyes on the new building for around two years.

Owning the building, they said, affords them the opportunity to make the changes they want, to upgrade the kitchen, to design a more appealing dining room and to offer more parking. The space is broken into two large rooms, each with their own aesthetic.

In the front, the walls are a rich blue, with gold decoration. In the back, the walls are a lighter, more subdued brown, featuring a large painting of an elephant. Piwon said each room would have its own “feeling.”

Apaipak said that Siam Noodles and Food centers on Thai food, “real Thai food.” She said they import ingredients from Thailand to offer an authentic experience.

“I want this community to taste like I eat at my home,” she said.

At the grand opening, free food will be available from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Piwon said they want to highlight the new additions to the menu. She said the opening will be a chance to thank the community for their support — from the day they opened five years ago and through the COVID-19 pandemic.
