I booked this after having a look at Trip Advisor and seeing that the reviews were quite good. I booked on the phone, which I would recommend for a weekend as it was really busy. The restaurant doesn't look impressive on the outside, and there are a LOT of tables inside, so don't come if you don't mind sitting fairly close to the other tables.
The service was great, greeted at the door and shown to the table as quickly as possible. There is a slight language barrier but nothing that was awkward. We ordered Tasting menu B and D (four people) and the food was lovely. The yellow curry was amazing, i would recommend it. The tasting platter starter was great for someone who hasn't had Thai before, to get a good range of food.

It wasn't too expensive, it cost around £130 for four people with a bottle of wine and two beers.

I would recommend it!

This is definitely my favourite Thai restaurant in York. I've been here 5 times and the service and food are always excellent.

I first visited soon after Old Siam opened and it was an excellent meal but last night it was the worst Thai meal ever. The food felt as though it had been sitting in a buffet tray all day losing all its taste. There was no taste, no spice nothing. The sauce was gloopy and certainly not very tasty. The rice was very sticky and difficult to separate. They really need to up their game and cook fresh food here not from a freezer.
