A colleague and I ate here on an overnight in York. There were a few language barrier misunderstandings when discussing the drinks and the bill but the service was otherwise attentive without being over bearing and very friendly. the food was absolutely delicious and portions were good. The price was reasonable. The ambience and decor were welcoming and would definitely... More

We went to York for an overnight stay, and hadn't booked a table, as we thought we could just see where we fancied on the night! We called in at The Siam, as we thought it looked lovely and cosy, and also very full! They said they could squeeze us in on a busy Saturday night, and reserved us a... More

Had a meal here 2 nights ago. Not as good as our previous visit - in particular, the chicken was very chewy. The staff are very polite and friendly.

We had a lovely meal here on a recent trip to York. The meal and the service was excellent. We had the sharing platter to start and I would definitely recommend this. I would also recommend booking as it was very busy and as we didn't book we had to wait 30 mins for a table.

I must say every time I visit this restaurant. I am never disappointed Unlike a lot of other ethnic restaurants who dilute their product and compromise to try and adapt to English tastes this restaurant serves authentic Thai food. I am guessing that is why it is so busy The Thai Red curry is amazing as is the green curry... More

The best thai in York! Food is amazing, fresh and full of flavour. Great service with well mannered staff. The only negative I have is that when the restaurant is full it's extremely hot and humid.. Although you could say this makes the atmosphere more authentic!!!

Food and service was excellent but they meat lacked tenderness and could only be described as chewy. Otherwise a perfectly acceptable meal but a little disappointing compared to the previous visit.

I work just down the road from this Thai restaurant so it's a regular spot for lunch. They do a 2 course special which is tremendous value. The menu is restricted to about 4 starters and 5/6 main courses. I'm vague about this as I always have Tom Khar soup, followed by green curry with chicken and steamed rice. I've... More
