A lovely Thai restaurant, staff were very helpful and friendly. Food was was delicious.The only little niggle are the toilets, two storage cupboards and one sink to use between both male and female, in desperate need of a re-vamp.

Visited last night with my mum on a weekend break to York. I had booked a table and was glad I had - at 7.45 and down a quiet street in the city the place was full. Really authentic Thai food, lovely waiting staff and excellent value for money - we'll be back!

Our meal was fantastic, I had Tom Yum to start and it was very flavoursome with just the right amount of spice. My beef Pad Thai was also delicious. Very nice restaurant highly recommended!

Loved that the staff wore Thai dress, restaurant decoration was superb and it was not overly noisy like most eateries these days. The food was beautifully presented and very tasty. It really was one of the best meals I have had and will certainly go again.

Fantastic Thai restaurant. I chose the Pla Chu Chee which was a salmon dish and I struggled to eat it all - there was so much salmon. But really high quality and delicious. We all really enjoyed our meals and was really good value for money - expected the bill to be higher.

We were looking for a change from pub grub and we're keen to try The Old Siam. With its great reviews, how could we possibly go wrong? When we picked our 3 meals up everything was fine until we started eating. The food wasn't exactly bad, but it definitely wasn't Thai food. We ordered Pad Thai, Chicken and cashew nut... More

Visited here whilst staying in York.As a frequent visitor to Thailand we know how difficult it is to find a genuine good Thai restaurant in the UK.However we believe we have found on in The Old Siam.We booked a table at 6pm just as it opened and was greeted by the lovely owner who showed us to our seats.After choosing...
