I took my Mam for lunch here today just after opening. The place is very nice and clean, the server was extremely kind and attentive. Service was quick and the food was delicious. This place is extremely good value for money and the menu is amazing. I'll be bringing my partner with me the next time I come :)

Really enjoyed our meal at the Old Siam, food was delicious and the staff were very warm, friendly and helpful. In such a handy spot a stone's throw to the quayside, so glad we found it and would definitely go back when in Newcastle. Thank you!

Been here before, years ago, so was looking forward to going again. I firstly Googled this place. Opening hours from 4pm on a Saturday it said. As I was out early, we wanted to eat early. I used their online booking system, but it would only reserve from 5.30 so I filled it in and asked for the time to... More

The chicken Pad Thai noodles and the unique Thai prawn crackers are me & my boyfriend's favourite meal. Great service - very friendly and don't mind you taking leftovers home. The wine is expensive but worth it and the Thai beer is very reasonably priced and compliments the food. Would definitely recommend!

The Old Siam serves high quality, authentic Thai food. I spent a lot of time in northern Thailand and missed the food. I was delighted to find The Old Siam. Great location, nice staff and reasonably priced. I'll definitely go back.

I haven't been for a few months so maybe the restaurant has vastly improved, but when I went here I didn't like it at all. I am not a fussy eater and I almost always finish my food, but I left half my meal in this restaurant. The prawns didn't taste fresh. Thai food can be so, so much better.... More

This is a lovely restaurant that was a pleasure to find and highly recommended if you enjoy Thai food. The service is incredibly attentive and very friendly and the food, oh the food was so tasty. I think I will be heading back here next time I am in town. Not sure if it is as busy throughout the week... More

This place was recommended to us and when we walked in I really liked the atmosphere. The service was excellent and very friendly. But the food this day was not up to par. The milk in the soup was curdled, the mussels were overcooked and tough. But the Duck stir fry was wonderful. If I head back there again I... More
