Visited last Sunday and as usual it was very good. Good authentic Thai food, wine from Hua Hin, and great service and ambiance. We had grilled fish in garlic and lemon, chicken satay,green curry,prawn soup and they were all spot on. Highly recommended. And if you have to wait for a table then Brigantes bar is a couple of doors... More

I really like this Thai restaurant and highly recommend it. You get a very warm and authentic welcome from the staff in general. The waiting staff are very attentive and inter-react well.The service is nicely timed .... not too slow but not too quick. The staff significantly add to the experience. The menu is interesting and diverse. The quality of... More

I have visited here so many times before I went back to my country for a month. Yesterday (Sunday), when I went there again, everything is changed. The service was really different from my previous visit. Staff were walking around and could not explain the menu clearly and they always looked over you to see if they can take away... More

The staff a friendly and the service is great. It always is (we have been here 6-7 times). The main let down was the meat in both out dishes. Rubbery would be an understatement. One dish had beef and one was chicken. Both were very chewy. The only difference from previous visits is that this was a Tuesday night rather... More

Fabulous food and excellent service. Made a special birthday meal more special. Were very helpful in allowing us to decorate earlier in evening.

Me and my partner went to the Old Siam on a Saturday night, he had been before and insisted it was the best. On arrival we were sat straight away, drink orders taken instantly and we both cracked on looking at the menu. The drinks were a little pricey, but when you drink spirits that is normally the case! They... More

Glad we booked as the restaurant was packed and turning people away, even at 7:15pm! The atmosphere was good, as was the service - particularly given that they were so busy. The food was good, but not outstanding. The portion sizes were fine - we had the sharing platter for starters and 2 curries and a stir fry with rices... More
