Who would have thought it? After all these years of visiting Regina every few months and never finding any kind of decent Asian food, there is now an exceptionally good authentic Thai restaurant. We found Siam Authentic Thai (1946 Hamilton St.), which is truly a small hole-in-the-wall. But ... oh, our meal was delicious and delicate.
As an appetizer, we had the deep fried calamari and onions served with a Thai chili sauce. The calamari and the onions were every so delicately done with a nice tempura batter. The calamari was perfectly done (!) as were the very tasty onions.
Miss L followed this with the Panaeng Gai (curry chicken), which was tender and perfectly done white chicken meat in a tasty green curry and creamy coconut milk with lime leaves (oh, so nice!), and mushrooms and pepper corn. She loved it, and my taste was absolutely delicious.
I had the Kanom Geen Gang Keaw Wan ... a delicious rice vermicelli and green curry chicken served with veggies. The dish was perfect in flavors, delicacy and quite enough to fill you up. The service was perfect and polite, and not at all pretentious. The price was right.
This wonderful little Thai restaurant can compete with any of the good Thai places in Toronto, Calgary or Vancouver. I'll certainly be back next time I'm in Regina.
