Why Som Tam Nua Restaurant is special ?
Som Tam Nua on Siam Square Soi 5 is a casual and trendy dining spot that has risen to fame serving up tasty, foreigner-friendly papaya salad and other Issan-region dishes. Hidden deep down on one of the alleyways leading away from Siam BTS station, the search for Som Tam Nua is a fun prelude to a tasty meal, and, at times, the queues of locals trailing out the door testify to its reputation. Located in Siam Square, the main fashion hub of the city, there are a whole range of fashion stalls and interesting shops surrounding the restaurant.
Thai dishes such as pad Thai and tom yam soup might be better known abroad, but neither are eaten as regularly in Thailand as papaya salad, and Som Tam Nua is a great place to give it a try surrounded by an interesting mix of customers in a pleasant, clean air-conditioned environment.

Tips for you
This restaurant has been around for some years now. Originated in Siam Square and now i think they have more than 3 branches in Bangkok. If you are looking to experience spicy Thai foods, especially Som Tam (papaya salad) , laab and the best dish of all is actually Fried Chicken Wings. The price has been on the rise recently. But, it is still acceptable. I'd still prefer the original branch in Siam Square. But i also tried the one at Siam Centre. Both have same taste. Recommend this restaurant for those looking to experience real thai e-san foods with reasonable prices.
Love the fried chicken! Decent som tam (papaya salad) & sticky rice. Sinful snack - pork rinds!
