Bl**dy lovely!!

We didn't eat in the restaurant last night, I bought some take out from here instead as a treat for the wife who has just gone on Mat leave. We wanted to get something high end, but didn't have child care sorted. Make no mistake, this is not your typical take out meal, it's top quality food to... read more

I had been asking my girlfriend for some weeks now where she wanted to be taken out for a birthday meal. After asking around friends for recommendations, she decided on Old Siam. Seemed ideal; we'd not heard of old Siam before and neither of us had tried Thai food before so we approached it with hopeful anticipation. We were not... More

Wonderful Thai restaurant serving divine, tasty food which was some of the best Thai food I've tasted outside of Thailand. Service was great, prices reasonable and this quirky restaurant fully deserves its' 5 stars from this reviewer. Clean toilets too. Faultless and thoroughly recommended. Make sure you book as it gets busy.

My husband and I really enjoyed our meal at The Old Siam last night. We had the platter to start, sea bass in red curry sauce, king prawn pad thai and coconut rice. Finishing off with banana fritters the meal was spot on as was the service. The restaurant is cosy and we had a good view of the chaos... More

It's little - it's cozy - it's quaint - and the food is authentic Thai. Staff very attentive but not over powering. Even offered to re-make the Thai Beef Salad if it was too hot for us - it wasn't, it was amazing! We'll be back...

Went with friends and the food was great. Lovely service also. We had a set meal which had so much food that they wrapped it up and we took it home. Will definitely go again

Great all around experience- busy Saturday night which created a lovely atmosphere, service was great and food all round very tasty at our table of 6 - the chicken satay starters were a particular hit. Would happily recommend this restaurant.

Visited this Thai restaurant mid week during a works evening and having been here before was quite looking forward to it. The food once again did not dissapoint, it was served in good time and was extremely flavoursome. However I would say that the waitress who breifly looked after us was ever so slightly rude, gave me a feeling like... More

Absolutely gorgeous food, incredibly tasty and didn't leave you feeling too heavy!! The flavours were incredible and I could not recommend it anymore. Only fault was the rice portions were slightly to small, we had a lot of curry left over even though we had a portion of rice each and could have definitely eaten more. We were also kept... More

I stumbled across this place on a Sunday night, when looking for a place to eat some food. The downstairs is quite cosy and has a handful of tables, I think there is an upstairs. The staff were all pleasant and helpful. I ordered the shrimp/spring rolls as starters which were nice and for my main I had a sweet... More
