My partner and I went to the Old Siam for a thai meal as Bangkok cafe seems to have closed down. While the starter of chicken satay was good, the pad thai chicken that we had was very average and had the odd inclusion of thick red onions in it? This may be common in some places but I've never...

Had a lovely meal, tom yum soup was a little disappointing, only three prawns, but other than that, had lovely deep fried seafood and a garlic and ginger stir fry main. My partner had a beef noodle main which was fresh and well flavoured. Service was excellent, food was a little slow to come out but the waitress apologised and... More

This is a real gem. Authentic Thai food at reasonable prices. The staff are really friendly and the manager who had come up from York when it first opened couldn't do more for us. Go.

I went to The Old Siam in York and this is one of the reasons I went to Newcastle so I could try it out again. The Old Siam in Newcastle is equally as good as York, the service and the food are excellent and if you go to Newcastle then please try, you will not be disappointed.

When we explained to the staff they said not a problem give us 10 minutes. 10 minutes later we were sorted for a table without issue. I had... More

We love Thai food, so we were looking forward to this meal! And we werent disappointed. Being a vegetarian... More
