Great Thai food

Visited York in December for a pre-Christmas break and dined at The Old Siam as we love Thai food. I would definitely recommend. We had one of the banquets for two and were pleasantly surprised by the amount of food served. Everything was tasty, and served with a smile. Nothing super fancy, just... read more

A tiny restaurant so make sure you get in early. Food is yum and staff are very friendly. Serves all the Thai favourites at reasonable prices. The atmosphere is lovely and cosy. Would recommend.

We shared the veggie platter for a starter between 2, which could have done between about 4 people! I had the coconut rice with sweet and sour tofu/veg. This was wonderful, they make the best coconut rice! :-) The sweet and sour was more sweet than anything, but still wonderful. Will be coming back again! :-)

Having read the trail of excellent reviews for this restaurant, we made a booking a month in advance to ensure that we secured a table on a specific date. Disappointingly, we found the experience rather underwhelming. Our greeting was lukewarm, with no acknowledgement that the booking had been made, and the service throughout the evening was somewhat half hearted. Our... More

I went there with my gf. The food was ok however the waitress was a bit pushy. It seemed she wanted us to order more stuff without we were intentioned. It's a bit expensive to be an Asian restaurant.

So glad we found this place. Came out on a Friday night for a family birthday, didn't book a table as we didn't realise how busy York would be on a Friday in January! The answer very! Luckily for us The Old Siam managed to squeeze us in. Food was excellent chicken satay and fish cakes were delicious my husbands... More

Whilst wandering around in the day time I spotted this restaurant and having looked at the menu through the window I looked it up on Tripadvisor as I hadn't seen this come up when booking my previous places to dine. I only really paid attention to the reviews of those who regularly eat at Thai restaurants and I was delighted... More
