Such amazing food and fantastic service. If your deciding between this and Thai Mantra (as their both on the quayside) then you will be sourly disappointed if you don't go here. Old Siam serves authentic, spicy, good quality Thai food. Thai Mantra is a Chinese, that has Thai dishes, simple as!! They also do my favourites Som Tum and Larb... More

Very good standard food. Attractive and comfortable restaurant. Menu is uncomplicated the wine list is well rounded. If you want it hot you've got to really stress it. I asked for hot and got just spicy. I'll likely go again.

This is easily the best Thai food my wife and I have ever had outside of Thailand, and maybe in Thailand too. We lived there for 4 months and have visited many times more, but the food at The Old Siam was absolutely delicious and authentic, not to mention the impeccable service synonymous with Thailand. Highly, highly recommended.

We ate here last night,17/01/2017, quite small and when I passed earlier in the evening it was full, we entered at about nine pm and had a table straight away, the waitress was very attentive, the food was delightful, I had a yellow curry, the sauce was slightly thicker than I've had before, I wish they would all make it...

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
