Sushi Siam is one of the better choices for non-gimmicky sushi in South Beach. If you want a bagel and lox roll this isn't your place, but the menu offers enough tasty choices of fresh fish to please those who like their sushi straight. For appetizers, the "dancing squid" is very popular, and spring rolls explode with greaseless flavor. The sashimi is served in a neat wooden box. For those opposed to the raw fish experience, there is an entire menu section of Thai specialties, including a top-notch "chicken pad Thai." Curry options are also worth investigating, punched with potent flavors, but not fiery enough to bring tears.
