In a very quick turnaround, Fremont East has a brand new Thai restaurant, a short walk from downtown favorite, Le Thai.
Sitting directly across from the El Cortez casino entrance, Siam Square Thai Restaurant has taken over the eastern side of the shuttered “Urban Grocery Store,” The Market, once occupied by The Bronze Cafe.
First revealed last month, the business is registered to Krairit Krairavee, the executive chef of Lemongrass at Aria, but the operators make no mention of his connection to the project.
On the menu, appetizers of grilled cuttle fish, chicken satay, a grilled rib-eye salad, and the $8 “Siam Square Crazy wings,” chicken wings prepared with spicy tamarind sauce.
Curry options include red curry beef, green curry chicken, and the Panaeng curry rib-eye served in a thick red curry sauce.
Entrees include a collection of noodle and rice dishes, plus the $15 tamarind sauce fried flounder, “Son-in-Law Egg with Pork Leg Stew” and cashew nut chicken. For dessert, they feature coconut or vanilla ice cream served within a sweet bread sandwich.
Siam Square Thai Restaurant, 611 Fremont St., 702-445-6301. Open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 a.m. and closed on Sundays.
