Attention Peanust Sauce Lovers
Posted by:  Jill Jaracz

"Cheap" and "River North restaurant" aren't usually two phrases that go in the same sentence, unless you're talking about Star of Siam. Entrees here are under $10 (and that's taking into account the side of rice you might order, since it's not included in the dish). Overall, the food is good, though many dishes seem to err on the side of less spicy. The menu is fairly varied, with many curries and noodle dishes to choose from. Peanut sauce aficionados will find Star of Siam's sauce pretty damn tasty, so make sure to get an appetizer or entree with it. Top your meal off with a tropical drink, and you'll be eating like a king, just not spending like one. The restaurant itself is large and has a section of "floor seating" where you sit on cushions rather than regular chairs. Groups are welcome and can get a great deal on family-style service.
