Having eaten in Bangkok it's an extraordinary truth that Thai food is possibly best in Leeds, Yorkshire. And, right near the top of that accolade is My Thai at the Old Steps. You need to book for this off city centre, but near the railway station eaterie. It's small inside, but friendly and intimate with a bohemian decor. The food... More

Visited with friends who had recommenced it. A cute little place with a very warming atmosphere! We hadn't booked but managed to get a table on the provision that we would need to vacate within one hour. This suited us fine, we just hoped the food would arrive in good time! It did and we were pleasantly surprised with how... More

Wow. What a fantastic place. Lovely authentic ambiance and freshly cooked Thai, as good as the local places in Thailand. We ordered Tom Yam and Won Ton soup to start. Both delicious and perfectly spiced. For mains we both had a chicken dish of green curry and chicken with cashew nuts with a side order of broccoli (with chilli and... More

I have had several meals from this restaurant and they are always excellent. One of the best Thai meals to be had in Leeds.

Not only is this the best tasting Thai food I've had, it's also the best tasting. A lovely little setting which I imagine gets busy on an evening or midweek lunch

Saturday evening visit was very good. Very friendly service and the food was great. Nice bottle of wine completed a very pleasant evening. Wish they could (or would) tidy up the entrance steps and entrance doorway though. Old they may be but really scruffy. Don't let this put you off since once inside it is great.

I went to this restaurant and had the Tamarind duck and it was amazing, the best I've had. I will be returning for more.

We recently visited during outr trip to Leeds. The restaurant itself is a few minutes walk from the hustle & Bustle of the more central places & is situated down some steps just off the main street. Its only a small place but it has a nice vibe, although our party of six were just a little crammed onto two... More
