With over a hundred oriental dishes to choose from, Siam Oriental is a paradise for fans of Far Eastern food. Located north of Leeds down Chapel Allerton’s Harrogate Road, Siam Oriental’s incredibly diverse selection is curated by a cheffing team that draw upon years of experience creating Thai, Chinese, Japanese, and other pan-Asian cuisines, adding judicious European flourishes where needed, but eschewing the the rigid structures of European dining. Take aim at any page of Siam Oriental’s menu and you’re guaranteed to find delicacies to suit your taste.
Siam Oriental’s dishes are as beautiful and restrained as their Chapel Allerton premises. Baskets of crispy tempura – perfect sharers to start – and boats of spicy Thai seafood and soups segue into mouthwatering Chinese-style grilled dishes like pork spare ribs and pan-fried scallops served in their shells. Dumplings and duck abound, with one of the popular chef’s specials being the Four Seasons Duck Curry, taking roasted duck and cooking it in red curry, coconut milk, pineapple grapes, basil and lime leaves. With such a bewildering selection at this north Leeds eatery, sometimes you need a little guidance. In such times of crisis, book a table at Siam Eatery’s Harrogate Road restaurant and settle into one of their set menus.
The ultimate guided dining experience at Leeds’ Siam Eatery is undoubtedly their signature Siam Oriental Menu, a three-course meal designed to be shared among two or more people. Let the chefs at Chapel Allerton’s most comprehensive pan-Asian restaurant take you on a journey through East and Southeast Asian culinary traditions, choosing from mixed starters like the prawn and chicken golden bag, tom yum tiger prawn soup, and mains like beef in black bean sauce, teriyaki chicken, or red curry prawns. We agree with Siam Eatery that dining at this chic Asian restaurant should be social and playfully unstructured – courses can be taken in any order and it’s always best to bring a gaggle of friends with you. Set menus such as the Golden Siam Menu and the Siam Mandarin Menu offer smaller, two-course, but equally diverse paths through this galaxy of Eastern cuisine – all you have to do is take the first step and find Siam Eatery down Harrogate Road.
Great food, great value and wonderful service! The massaman curry was amazing, the starters were excellent. Very quick to bring the food and asked I fb we were ready for the mains.
Fantastic food and beautiful setting. Fresh and vibrant dishes, I have never been disappointed. The staff are attentive and knowledgeable. My favourite Thai in Leeds. Highly recommended.
The food was lovely and the service was friendly and good. We were not rushed out of the door! We will definitely visit here again.
