I must say every time I visit this restaurant. I am never disappointed Unlike a lot of other ethnic restaurants who dilute their product and compromise to try and adapt to English tastes this restaurant serves authentic Thai food. I am guessing that is why it is so busy The Thai Red curry is amazing as is the green curry... More

The best thai in York! Food is amazing, fresh and full of flavour. Great service with well mannered staff. The only negative I have is that when the restaurant is full it's extremely hot and humid.. Although you could say this makes the atmosphere more authentic!!!

Food and service was excellent but they meat lacked tenderness and could only be described as chewy. Otherwise a perfectly acceptable meal but a little disappointing compared to the previous visit.

I work just down the road from this Thai restaurant so it's a regular spot for lunch. They do a 2 course special which is tremendous value. The menu is restricted to about 4 starters and 5/6 main courses. I'm vague about this as I always have Tom Khar soup, followed by green curry with chicken and steamed rice. I've... More

My partner and I had walked ourselves to blisters, on a busy tour around York City centre and had considered and then discounted many interesting eating options in favour of the Old Siam. This was in no small part due to the many positive references here on Trip Advisor. Now it seems somewhat churlish to write negatively about the food,... More

I was in York for work and my colleague had eaten here so we went for meal on a Thursday night. Fantastic food - I had chicken satay for starters and it was a lovely sized portion (pretty much a full chicken breast!) with flavourful sauce and a tasty homemade pickle type. I then had a beef red thai curry... More

A great find, visited based on the trip advisor reviews after searching for a Thai in the city. We were delighted with the food, fresh, clean and yummie, we had the mixed starter for two which wa stunning and not over facing, the Thai green chicken curry was also stunning, nice and spicy and the sauce was thick, my husband...

We only came here due to the excellent TA reviews but glad we did. Just done the road from where we were staying. We had a Pad thai, Mussaman (beef), garlic chicken dish. All just yum. Worth a visit if you want a thai.
