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.
