Lucky to get a table and a nice one it was too. We had set meal A which was a reasonable price and very sufficient in volume. Left feeling very satisfied and good value. Good service, nice staff.

We were lucky to get a table here as it was very busy but the staff were very accommodating, getting us a table for 2 ready at the back. The chicken satay is absolutely delightful, and the duck massaman curry and noodle dishes are also fab. I will definitely visit again if im ever in York.

Good service, good food, good atmosphere. The restaurant was almost full but it wasn't noisy and the food came out quickly. I would go again if ever visiting York.

We tried The Old Siam because of the very good Trip Advisor reviews. The food was extremely disappointing: the kind of Thai food I would expect to find in an average Chinese restaurant. Perhaps the Chef was ill and had to be replaced at the last minute, otherwise I cannot understand the other reviewers. In contrast, the service was lovely... More

As always The Old Siam was amazing, friendly, tasty and very authentic! Beautiful flavours in Steamed fish sauce and I every curry I have tried so far!!!! Love it! The steamed Fish takes me back to happy memories in Hua Hin!!! However, I must say that Tom Yum soup wasn't quite right. The balance of flavours was not quite there.... More

Had a meal in this restaurant recently but I really wouldn't 'rave' about it. I would say the food was pretty average. We were originally given a table just inside the doorway and as it was a little bit windy that evening the door kept blowing open - the door catch was obviously broken. Before our meal was served I... More

It is several years ago sdince we last visited. The service was excellent, with very large tasty portions. It would have got 5* apart from bthe chicken was a little on the chewy side. Would however recommend.

The Orchid in Harrogate is probably the best Thai restaurant in Yorkshire for food and whilst the food here is not quite up to their level, the overall experience is every bit as good due to the oriental staff - at The Orchid I think they from Halifax and Huddersfield! First class service, excellent food - glad we returned.

Great Thai food, the best you'll get anywhere, duck in tamarind sauce is out of this world. Only bad things is dodgy toilets and service is almost too fast, due to its popularity sometimes you feel rushed, but great great food

Recommend booking as very busy mid week. Staff greeted us at the door and showed us to our table. Staff recommended a great house Thai wine which was superb. We had a set meal for 2 which was very fresh, great tasting and more than enough for the 2 of us.
