Beautiful

Quite simply the best Thai restaurant in Newcstle. We have tried others we always come back. The staff are pleasant and welcoming and cannot do enough for you. The food is utterly beautiful and a decent price! You won't leave disappointed.

The restaurant was empty when we rocked up at 1230 today (Sunday). A charming waiter, (who really is half Thai half Laos) couldn't have been more helpful. We have spent a lot of time in Thailand (and we live in Australia, where Thai food is really popular and Thai restaurants are run by Thais), and honestly, couldn't fault the set... More

Found myself craving for Thai food and did a bit of research on Trip Advisor. Ended up at The Old Siam with my husband for lunch. Papaya salad was alright but was not the same with what we had in Thailand. No dried shrimps which affected the flavours of the salad. We also ordered a Thai fried noodle dish, which... More

Two years since I discovered this restaurant thanks to trip advisor. I have returned numerous times with friends and am still full of praise for the consistent and quality food and the caring attentive staff. Happy to recommend. Main courses around £11, starters around £5.50. Our teenager adores the banana fritter deserts, otherwise known as deep fried banana and icecream.... More

We came upon this restaurant by accident, and were delighted that we did! It is small, clean and seemed pretty authentic, although I am no expert on Thai food .. the dishes were generous and came quickly. The final bill was very reasonable.
