    We didn't even eat. They had cut back the menu for the off season so much my wife, who is gluten free, couldn't find any thing to order. We got up and left.

    A unique Thai dining experience in a relatively remote mountain village. Excellent service with attention to detail. Food beautifully prepared and presented. My favorite entree is the softshell crab salad.

    A wonderful dinner was spoiled by the fact that a very large window needs a sunscreen. It was blinding if your chaired faced the window and there is only so many people that you can put on one side of a table to compensate. This is the same problem that the restaurant has had since it opened almost a year ago. GET A SUNSHADE!!!

    Everything was great except for early evening summer setting sun. They need some shades to block the strong sunlight at sunset.

  • delicious surprise in the village

    What a wonderful addition to the mountain village restaurant repertoire. The menu is a combination of eclectic asian dishes. One could just order a lot of appetizers and have a delicious tapas evening (steamed buns were especially delicious, and the lettuce wraps and hand rolls were also very good), but the fish specials really need to be considered. The fish is incredibly fresh (it is flown in daily, and the specials change accordingly), and expertly prepared. Flavors were well balanced and didn't overwhelm each other. The staff was friendly and enthusiastic. Very nice ambiance as well, with subtle live music provided by a singer/guitar player, but not loud at all. We wanted to go back the next day!

  • Thoroughly Disappointed
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 3/18/2014
    OVERVIEW: Thoroughly disappointed. A lot of things on the menu were hit and miss, and even the best things I tasted were pretty mediocre. The slow service, high price, and attempt at fusion food definitely missed the mark. THE APPETIZERS: The hand rolls are pretty hit and miss. I had ordered a salmon hand roll, and I swear the chef forgot the sauce. The pate and the crispy duck hand rolls were pretty good. The gwa pao were pretty good, pretty standard. Food being overly salty was a pretty common thread throughout the night. THE ENTREES: Pretty hit and miss as well. My lobster tail came with a pretty great butter sauce but it did tend to overpower the delicate flavor of the lobster. My father and family friend had overcooked proteins.

    Love this place. There are so many great restaurants in Telluride, but this place was so unique and special. We love Siam in Telluride (same owner) but this is not like a traditional Thai restaurant. We specifically came for fish since we dined on Friday during lent. So many choices. Everything super fresh with great use of Thai seasonings and sauces without being heavy. If we had come here earlier in our trip, we might have been inclined to eat here every day since there were so many things on the menu we wanted to try. That said, since there were so many tapas and small taste options, a person could graze their way through the menu. Our server was exceptionally knowledgeable on the menu and we enjoyed speaking with the owner.

    Wonderful experience at Siam Talay. Soup fantastic, as was the hamachi with brown butter glaze. Also liked rice buns. Enhanced by excellent service and a truly wonderful classic guitar player who was gracious enough to let our son open mike for a few originals. We had a fine time there and will go back on our next visit to Telluride.

    Dined on 2/28/2014
    The only gripe we had was the long wait for our food. We were seated about 7:15 and were served shortly after 9:00. The fault lies with the kitchen and not the waiter. Other than that it has great ambiance and decorations. I would call it elegant. We were a party of nine and I thought the $360.00 was reasonable.

    Great food! Very surprised to find such great fish in the mountains. We are from Hawaii, I had the swordfish and it was excellent. Drinks were unique fun and very tasty too. Jeff the owner came by and spent a ton of time cheating with us as well. First class, thanks so much!

    At risk of being the only one to cast a dissenting view, Oof! If you're looking for something different, and by different I mean Way Out There, this is your place. Located at the Inn at Lost Creek (Mountain Village), this is a small restaurant with an Asian influence. We found the food to be nothing short of bizarre and rather unsatisfying. We love food from all over and are always eager to try a new cuisine but this was way off the mark. We understand the chef has a 'great' restaurant in Telluride but were disinclined to try it after this experience. That said, the place seems to be full most of the time, so it must appeal to some.

    Different from the in town Siam, but some of the same favorites and lots of new offerings -- especially a nice fresh fish selection -- Siam Talay is a culinary delight. And the fact that they take reservations at this warm-feeling locale in Mountain Village makes it a Telluride winner.

  • Another Siam Winner

    Dined on 1/1/2014
    We have been long time favorites of Jeff Badger's Siam in Telluride and Siam Talay is another winner.However, we like the differences---being able to reserve in advance, the beautiful, sleek upscale atmosphere and the ability to order a wide variety of fresh seafood. Every fish entrée we had was cooked to perfection with a great sauce recommended by our waiter, Graham, I had the yellow fin tuna, sushi grade rare with the light wasabi sauce. My daughter enjoyed the lobster tail and my husband's scallops were grilled just the way he liked. We tried several appetizers which are similar to those of Siam Telluride. So glad there is a wonderful option for great Siam dining closer to our home in Mountain Village!

    Very glad to see these folks branching out to the Mountain Village. Have been a Siam fan for years and Siam Talay is a great expansion. We had dinner for four early on a very busy holiday week night. The kitchen got backed up quickly and some tables around us got unnecessarily grumbly but we didn't mind and our waiter had warned us. The food was totally worth waiting for. Steamed buns were delicious and my tempura crab was excellent. The menu is interesting and eclectic. For grumpy impatient holiday visitors a suggestion; relax, you are on vacation, dude.

    Our waiter was running around frantic, giving the impression he hasn't served people before. for being a small restaurant , the service was slow. for example i ordered a whiskey neat and it took 15 minutes to get to the table. It was my birthday and I just got engaged so I wanted to have a nice dinner. The restaraunt called and told me they over booked and was placing us at the bar. this is the type Of things they need to fix if they want to be succesful. Another annoying thing that happened was my fiancé ordered there Thai mint alcoholic drink, the waiter informed us they were running low on mint an could not make one.....really? Needless to say I will not be returning. Go downtown to the real Siam it's much better.

    We enjoyed our first visit to the Tallay Siam in the mountain Village. They were very busy as it was New Year's Eve but they handled the crowd professionally. The food was very good. The menu and atmosphere are very different from the original Siam in the town of Telluride and a welcomed alternative. Menu offers both fresh seafood entrees and a large selection of rolls and steamed buns that can be mixed and matched to create your meal. The buns and rolls are not shareable sized as our waitress pointed out.
