This place used to be The Old Siam but has now changed name, owners and menu. Food - ok, service - pleasant but the Thai uniforms are replaced by branded t-shirts and that kind of sums the place up now. Lost a bit of its...More

I've visited The Old Siam twice, and I've been impressed on both occasions. It's quite small and dimly lit, which adds to the quaint atmosphere - but the star of the show is the great tasting food! I would highly recommend the sharing starter which...More
