There’s only one way a reporter of my integrity and standards knows how to report on the closure of Siam Orchid Thai Cuisine at 2259 Emmons Avenue:
Sure, it’s not like they were the best Thai food in the world. But they were pretty much the only Thai restaurant in the area for what seemed like forever. Now we have Thai Basil on Nostrand Avenue, which is a solid takeout option, but we’ll miss Orchid’s waterfront views and fish tank full of giant, ugly fish.
China Max next door closed down in November. Attempts to reach the property owner were unsuccessful, so we can’t say for sure that Siam is closed for good. But it did not appear to be renovating, and there was no sign for customers.
ลาก่อน, my Thai friends. And good luck.
