Siam Palace in Hayward Features Traditional Thai Dances
Siam Palace is a little Thai restaurant in Hayward, with two dining rooms, tastefully decorated with authentic artifacts, and serving fresh, low-fat, flavorful dishes, prepared to order. The place is busy on most nights and during lunch hours, but especially sought after in November. In this anniversary month, traditional Thai dancers perform in full costume among the tables, in close proximity to the viewers, yet surrounded by the mysterious air of their ancient art. This year, Siam Palace celebrates its fourth anniversary, and a new program of Thai dances will be presented next week. Sandy, the owner of Siam Palace, who is always on premises, greeting her visitors with a smile and helping her wait staff, invites only schooled authentic dancers directly from Thailand. The restaurant serves a wide array of traditional dishes with well-pronounced flavors of lemon grass, garlic, and chili. Its tom ka soup became legendary for its balanced nuanced flavor, and the in-house recipe of green papaya salad, wrapped in wide rice noodle and drenched in delicate clear sauce is a favorite of this critic and a staple for regulars. The Thai dance program is offered with dinner on Wed., Nov. 12 at 7 p.m. Reservations recommended. Siam Palace is located at 22545 Foothill Blvd., Hayward, CA. Open 7 days a week for lunch, dinner, and take out. Call 510-581-6706.
