About The Old Siam - Newcastle

Dear diners, Friday and Saturday bookings must be made via telephone, we are unable to accept online bookings on Fridays or Saturdays. Please call or email the restaurant directly.

Just a short walk from the stunning Tyne Bridge over to Gateshead, The Old Siam brings the ancient culinary arts of Southeast Asia and Thailand to the thriving city centre of Newcastle (and a sister restaurant in York). This 65-seater restaurant is spread over two floors at its location along Side, just up from the intersection with Quayside and Sandhill. The food here has a southern Thai influence, turning up the heat with a wide variety of meat, seafood and vegetarian dishes. Through outfitted with a private dining room and even cinema facilities, booking in for a casual meal from The Old Siam’s lunch and dinner menus is fantastically rewarding. Go for the fiery gaeng phet pla – a traditional red curry of salmon or seabass.
