We had read reviews and identified that this was quite close to where we were staying. Arrived early evening and were seated immediately. Food was good and quite plentiful. Service was good too. Would recommend

After a little problem with communication we ever able to get a lemongrass stir fry with king prawns - so good we considered ordering a second serving for dessert. Satay chicken was ok. The restaurant was empty when we came around 5:30pm but filled up before end of meal.

We visited September 2016 and both the service and food were very good. The restaurant was busy but we did not have to wait long for our drinks or to place our food order. The quality was very good and I would recommend this restaurant without hesitation.

My wife (Thai) and I visited for dinner. Good, authentic Thai food (which we find is rarely the case outside Thailand). Pleasant atmosphere, although a little cramped. Popular, although we were able to walk in without a reservation early in the evening (about 6pm if I remember correctly).

We hadn't booked and it was quite busy even 7.30pm . • location of restaurant: very good • service: we were welcomed friendly.

Used to be a fan of The Old Siam for many years, but our last visit was terrible. The food taste has changed every time we have visited with no standard but it was acceptable. However, our last visit was not. Food was poor, too sweet and cold. Pad Tai was not much in flavour, lack of real Pad Tai... More
