Staff polite and attentive even though they were under pressure. Tom yum - not bad but couldn't taste any lime and none provided. Jungle curry exactly the same with extra veg. In other words its soup! Red curry same again but with added coconut. Little heat in it even though it's described as hot. This isn't Thai cooking. Its Thai... More

When we arrived, having chosen the restaurant via TripAdvisor, we were a little surprised at how small the restaurant looked. Dont be fooled, its mostly on the first floor! The food was great, service was good and as were the prices. Happy to recommend. If I had one tip, it would be to make sure you don't get the table... More

My boyfriend and I tried Old Siam last night for the first time and we loved it! The staff were very sweet and couldn't do enough for you and the food arrived promptly and was absolutely delicious! Also very reasonably priced considering the portion sizes and standard of the food, the complimentary prawn crackers were also a nice touch!

Both our daughters have been to Thailand and love the food there. As part of our family group of six, I went last night. Two had been previously and had suggested we go there. The shared platter for a starter was delicious and the mains of Pad Thai, a green curry and mine(No 33 and not hot) were all amazing!... More

I was in Newcastle for a reunion with friends and a friend's birthday and 8 of us came here for dinner. It was absolutely unbelievable food, the duck Massaman curry was to die for! My friend loves the Thai salad with papaya but couldn't see it on the menu, but we asked and they made it for her! And brought... More

I have been to the Old Siam on numerous occasions and never leave disappointed. I normally go for my anniversary or birthdays as it is quite pricey. I took my father and partner out for dinner there last week and it was £70 for the 3 of us. The mixed starter is the thing to eat if you are new... More

First visit on New Year's Eve and definitely won't be the last. We had the set meal and enjoyed every tasty dish. For the location, right on the quayside the prices are really good too. Friendly and attentive staff just made the perfect experience.
