Siam Cafe, Chicago's Oldest Thai Restaurant, "Closed For Business"


It seems that one of Uptown's longest-running restaurants has quietly closed its doors. Siam Cafe, at 4712 North Sheridan, has signs in its windows indicating it has been shuttered, if we're interpreting "Closed for Business" correctly.

We're not sure exactly how long it's been around, but long-time residents say they think this family-owned establishment has been serving hungry customers in Uptown for at least fifty years. Some call it Chicago's oldest Thai restaurant.

The other Thai restaurant that was just steps away, the similarly named Siam Noodle (a newbie at "just" 30-something years in business), moved to Buena Park in 2017 after Sarah's Circle bought the building in which it had been housed. You can still enjoy Siam Noodle's cooking at its new home at 4142 North Broadway.

We will miss Siam Cafe.
