John Suddick was always a big foodie so when he met his wife Saowanit Kalong, who was already working in the restaurant business, it made sense to open up their own place where they could share dishes made to her mum’s recipes. And Saowanit, affectionately known as Nong to many a customer, is undoubtedly a firm favourite with clients as she’s usually the one hosting them.

In the restaurant, the decorative features are not only beautiful in their own right, they enhance the entire authentic Thai experience. The sala Thai arch has been brought indoors by the owners as it typically would be found outdoors, providing an area of shade for families to eat under, while the gold paintings are original prints by a Bangkok artist, and friend of Nong’s brother, produced especially for the Old Siam.

“Thai food, to us, is one of the only cuisines that tries to mix all five tastes in one dishes – it’s a holistic tasting sensation in each dish.”
