Great Thai food

I have been here a couple of times now & the food is amazing. The resturant is split over 2 levels & the upstairs area is the best, as downstairs can be very busy & drafty by the door. The choice of Thai food is great & all the staff are very friendly & helpful.

First time at this restraunt had the old Siam platter to start worth every penny and a curry with coconut rice you could easily share that as there was plenty had the mango ice cream and sticky rice for desert very tasty. Deffo would go back foods delicious and staff are very friendly!

Thai restaurants come and go in this area however The Old Siam remains. The food and staff service is to a good standard but the stairs are a killer. This said the atmosphere is best upstairs and downstairs can be busy with footfall and consequently drafty at times. Book seats upstairs and you won't be disappointed with your choice of... More

Quirky little restaurant with really friendly and attentive staff, most of the food i've eaten here has been lovely, especially the currys, however i wouldn't recommend the pad thai but, there is plenty of choice on the menu. Its the best Thai i've heard of in Newcastle so definitely worth a try if you like good thai food.

If you are looking for a authentic Thai in Newcastle this is the place. The food here is amazing. The Mussels are so fresh and are cooked with traditional Thai ingredients. Just perfect. The service is a little slow but the food is worth the wait.

This was our first visit here and it was lovely. Really well priced food and it tasted great. I'm a big lover of Thai food and certainly couldn't argue with the price and quality of the old Siam. Make sure you book in advance though. Also they do takeaway ! 😊 really good place

Me and my girlfriend have been eating here since the beginning of our relationship. The food is always delicious. Don't be fooled by 'downstairs', there is a larger room upstairs which i would recommend if you haven't eaten here before. The staff are are all lovely and are very polite and efficient. Booked a table for 22 people for my... More

If this had been the first time that I had eaten Thai food, i would have gone away with the impression that I did not like it. On entering I thought the restaurant had a stale smell and I found the food that I ordered did not taste fresh. Normally I like Thai food and I have visited plenty of... More
