I had dinner at the Old Siam recently when I was in York for a conference. The staff were lovely and friendly and efficient. The restaurant was well located, with a good atmosphere, and fairly busy for a Tuesday night. I had fish cakes for starter, which were very tasty, and a good sized helping. For main course I had...

There are hundreds of Thai restaurants in the UK, but this has the ingredients of real Thai: authentic food, gentle atmosphere, respectful and attentive service. We recommend highly!

Booked a table on an early Saturday evening for 3 of us. Great food, lovely friendly service. Even at 6pm it was busy with a nice atmosphere. Good value. Would definitely go again.

Booked a table on a Saturday evening as we fancied Thai for a change and the reviews were mainly positive. The restaurant was very busy. Food ok but nothing special, could get the same quality from the local takeaway. Can't help thinking the location of this restaurant on a busy pub filled street has a lot to do with the... More

I do love Thai food so was pleased to finally get to the Old Siam, and I wasn't disappointed. It was very good all round. The restaurant is quite small so do book if you can as it gets busy.

Having been over four years since my last visit to The Old Siam, and remembering my first visit fondly, I was pleased to be welcomed with the same warm greeting, pleasant surroundings and fantastic food. The Old Siam is somewhere doing everything right, a definite "must visit" place, and convenient for visitors being only 5 minutes walk from the train... More

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.
