We have visited the old Siam in Newcastle several times and thought we would try their restaurant in York and I'm glad we did it's a pretty little restaurant tastefully decorated with very attentive staff in would advise to book a table, the food is first class and at a more than reasonable price thanks for a very nice evening.

We really enjoyed our dinner here. The food is fantastic, with authentic thai flavours and quality. The service was helpful and friendly, and overall the place had a lovely cosy ambience.

As a long time resident in York we hadn’t yet visited before New Year's Eve but what a pleasant surprise! My wife and I had the lunch menu at £8.95. I had a spicy soup and then the Green Chicken Curry. Both delicious and freshly cooked. Delightful and appropriately attentive service. All good

We went to The Old Siam last night for the first time for our New Years Eve meal. First impressions were that the restaurant was very small and busy but the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We were seated straight away as we had pre booked and given our menus. We ordered the prawn spring rolls and tempura crispy... More

This is not a large restaurant, so mak sure you book. We went as a booked group of 9 over the Xmas period and had excellent service and delicious food. The range of Thai food was very good and I would enthusiastically go back again.

I really like Thai food anyway but the menu here has some things on it that could be best described as not the usual fair. I love trying new things and was very pleased with my experimentation of both starter and main course. Good food and attentive service

Celebrated our first anniversary here - very good Thai restaurant. We had the set menu at £23 each and it was lovely! Very fresh and plenty of food. The starter platter was exceptional and the curry dishes amazing. One of the chicken dishes was a little bland, but overall extremely good. Great service as well, the waitresses were very kind,...

This is a really nice location and restaurant. The food was OK. Nothing to write home about, but "decent". It was very busy so probably best to book. Not that many tables which adds a nice character. Prices probably just about justified.

Cute little venue which is always busy. Food was good.. service is not the best but friendly. If you like Thai food, you won't be disappointed. Try to avoid tables at the front one a cold night. Every time the door opens it is not very pleasant.

Thank lovedan060
