About The Old Siam - York

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.

Within sight of the historic Micklegate Bar near the ancient city walls of York, The Old Siam brings the venerable cuisine of Southeast Asia and Thailand to the bustling city centre’s ‘Micklegate Run’ (and it has a sibling restaurant in Newcastle). This traditional restaurant offers traditional, home-cooked Thai cuisine, offering a balance of nuanced and delicate and hot and spicy meat, seafood and vegetarian dishes. Consistently ranked among the top restaurants in York – and a great alternative to the curry houses along Micklegate if you’re out and about – booking in for lunch and dinner at The Old Siam is a must. Go for a set menu or the spicy pla ma-naow – steamed fish served in a spicy delicious lemon and chilli sauce.

What a lovely restaurant and a lovely way to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Great food and good service. I’m glad we booked a table as it was very busy due to races
