Delightful dining at The Old Siam

A delightful dining experience with excellent and friendly service and excellent and unusual Thai food. This is very much a genuine family run restaurant with friendly cooks in a kitchen that is open to view. A warm and friendly experience that well deserves its good reputation

Went here for a catch up meal with a friend and was really impressed with both the food and the staff. It is a little small but is nicely decorated. The only thing I can fault was the lack of any background music which could have improved the atmosphere. Staff very friendly - even the kitchen staff made the effort... More

I have been here many times and the food is always amazing and the place is very nicely decorated. It's normally quite busy so I would recommend to book a table in advance to be on the save side. I haven't been to Thailand yet but I have been told by people that this is the most authentic Thai food... More

This place is well worth a visit. Place is small but comfortable and the staff are friendly and helpull. Tom Yum soup and king prawn starter are delicious and the Pad Dik and Pad Thai are delicious to. We also had a bottle of wine and were suprised to find the bill was only £35. Well worth it.
