The food was absolutely amazing! The chicken massaman curry was just like being in Thailand! Good service, friendly staff. Very reasonably priced! Looking forward to a return visit! xx

Having a two day break in York and looking for somewhere a bit different than the usual chains. We love Thai food and this did not disappoint . Helpful staff, excellent menu choice and a quiet corner to enjoy our visit. Would highly recommend but book first it gets very busy.

What a great authentic place. The service was so welcoming and friendly. The walls are decked out with traditional art and the food is excellent. Their thai iced tea is not to be missed. The chicken satay was so delicious. My sister got pad thai, and I got a red curry with prawns. But be warned, their chilis (marking hotness... More

We ate here on Fri night as we were staying in York for the racing on Sat. We hadn't eaten here before but read good reviews so booked before we got there. The food was nice and the staff polite and helpful. Well done!

I cannot recommend the Old Siam more. It is, without a doubt, the best Thai restaurant I have ever eaten at in my life. Wonderful authentic service and food, we will come here time and time again to eat. So glad to have found it and I must recommend it to all.

Had a lovely meal in The Old Siam for my husbands birthday on our visit to York. I had a Tofu Curry which I enjoyed and my husband had a chicken green curry which he loved. This was my first time having Thai food and would try again. Staff could have been more attentive but friendly enough. Would visit again.

Visited this restaurant during a short break to York. On arrival we had a pleasant welcome , and we're shown a nice table at the window. I noticed Thai wine on the drinks menu so as I have never tried Thai wine before, I thought I'd give it a go, it was slightly different taste from most European/ New World... More

My partner and I have passed by this restaurant on the various occasions, but due to it always being very busy only managed to book a table on our most recent visit to York. Now we understand why it is always so busy!! The service was excellent and the food was fantastic, and also really reasonably priced for substantial portions.... More

We have been to The Old Siam a number of times and have never been disappointed. The set menus are very good. We'll be back soon.
