“Fantastic food & service”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Service is great! Muct booked I think they turned about 10 sets of people away while we were there! We had starters mains and dessert which is abnormal for us but it was so nice we couldnt help ourselves! Very authentic looking restaurant and tasting food! Had a wonderful experience here - if you like Thai ou will love The Old Siam

“Outstanding Thai Food!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

My cousin and I dined at The Old Siam in late 2012 (pay no attention to what it says elsewhere...TripAdvisor wouldn't let me say we'd been there in 2012, so I just picked a month.) after our innkeeper recommended the place. Located right outside the Mickelgate, The Old Siam is a warm and cozy delight. The service is impeccable, and the food! Let's put it this way...we're from California, and visit York every few years for a musical gathering of sorts. The Old Siam is now on our list of "places we have to eat" when we're in York. We eat a LOT of Thai food, and this place was easily on par with the best either of us has ever had, anywhere. Deep, rich, complex flavors, everything perfectly cooked...we never wanted the meal to stop. A gem in the old city --- try it!

“Great Thai Food”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

This is the third time I have been here in as many years and each time the food has been great as has the service. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this Restaurant. Just the fact that this place was packed whilst three or four other restaurants we walked past after the meal were mostly empty speaks volumes.

“Excellent food and great service”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

We really enjoyed our first wedding anniversary meal at The Old Siam. The service was fantastic, with welcoming friendly staff, and the food was delicious. It was very busy, even on a Sunday night, so I would definitely recommend booking ahead.

“Fantastic food!”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Walked for miles on a very cold April night after a "Ghost walk" to find the old Siam.
At one point we nearly stopped walking and deviated for a pizza.... luckily we resisted.

The food was worth waiting for.
Full of flavour, well cooked and good portion size.

Service was also good.

If I lived in York...... I would visit weekly!
