Delicious

Fantastic Thai restaurant. I chose the Pla Chu Chee which was a salmon dish and I struggled to eat it all - there was so much salmon. But really high quality and delicious. We all really enjoyed our meals and was really good value for money - expected the bill to be higher.

We were looking for a change from pub grub and we're keen to try The Old Siam. With its great reviews, how could we possibly go wrong? When we picked our 3 meals up everything was fine until we started eating. The food wasn't exactly bad, but it definitely wasn't Thai food. We ordered Pad Thai, Chicken and cashew nut... More

Visited here whilst staying in York.As a frequent visitor to Thailand we know how difficult it is to find a genuine good Thai restaurant in the UK.However we believe we have found on in The Old Siam.We booked a table at 6pm just as it opened and was greeted by the lovely owner who showed us to our seats.After choosing...

We eat here last night, and debated whether on a Tuesday evening to reserve a table in advance....its a good job we did!! It was packed ....... Restaurant has a great atmosphere, great food (lots of choice), staff where welcoming and always polite. Food was just superb and would definitely eat here again and recommend to all too.

I keep coming back to Old Siam as it's the best thai food I've ever had outside of Thailand. The Tom Yum and the Grilled Tiger Prawns are a must every time I come for an evening meal. I love all the curries and the Pad Prik as well as the Pad Thai (which I always choose when going for... More

I moved to York recently and was so excited to find this gem of a restaurant. For starters the service is really top notch. Everyone treats you with respect and yet like family. And the tea is really beautiful. But enough about the first act the main show is the food and it is by far the best Thai I've... More

A very good, traditional Thai restaurant. Very tasty food and really excellent attentive staff. A bit more expensive than I was expecting, but in York that is to be expected. Mixed starters for 2, a soup, 2 stir fries, rice and 3 beers £50. This is one of the best Thai dinners I've had. Pretty busy with locals for a... More
