We decided on the Old Siam after trawling through the Tripadvisor reviews for Newcastle. We're glad we did! From the moment we entered the welcome and service was top notch.
We shared the Old Siam platter for two or more people - a beautiful selection of Thai classical starters served with various dips. It was delicious and there was plenty of it. I chose a main of King Prawn Roul Dang – a classic stir fry with red wine sauce, red onions and crunchy
cashew nuts. I was a wee bit concerned about mixing a red wine sauce with prawns, but I shouldn't have been. The dish was fantastic! My wife chose a Duck Lemongrass Stirfry. While lemongrass can be a dainty flavour, we felt that this dish was a little bland rather than delicate. It was slightly disappointing but we ate the lot anyhoo! We finished by both having the Mango Mousse. Glad we ordered one each - it was so good that if only one of us had ordered it, the other would have been glum! All in all a great experience made all the better by the attentive and prompt service and friendly atmosphere. We will return!
