1. Siam Smith

If you’re in the mood for Thai food, Siam Smith is a must-visit restaurant at Palais Renaissance. Their Signature Beef Noodles ($18.50), are a customer favourite and come with slices of beef, meatballs, and tripe in a savoury beef broth. Notably, the broth was derived from a generational family recipe, which is simmered for hours in a blend of spices and herbs which gives it a full-bodied, robust flavour.
In addition to beef noodles, Siam Smith is also known for their Seafood Creamy Tom Yum Noodles ($18.50). This dish features red prawns, red garoupa, and squid in a fiery and creamy broth. Alternatively, you can opt for Thai Hainanese Chicken Tom Yum Noodles ($14.50) instead.
