What a find! This is a lovely family run restaurant with a fabulous menu, great wine, and brilliant value. So much nicer than the thai menus you normally see and the food is just delicious. Have eaten there on several occasion now and is simply the best Thai in Dorset. They also have special offers on tuesday and sundays. I... More

This restaurant holds a special place in our hearts as it is were we celebrated getting engaged many years ago! We fell in love with this gorgeous restaurant, helpful and friendly staff and its absolutely delicious food, returning regularly. We recently celebrated New Years Eve with a take away from Thai Nakorn and it was nothing short of perfection! Each... More

We had the lunch deal. Both the starters and main courses were very tasty and authentic. The spice level was quite high, but that is because we had been chatting to the staff in Thai, so they prepared the food to Thai spec. I think they normally make it less spicy for westerners. We will definitely be back.

A very standard high street Thai restaurant. Service good and smiley, dining room perfectly OK with normal mass produced Thai artefacts, food average, not particularly fragrant, menu very standard. You get what you expect and what you pay for. More fuel than dining out. But then I am not a big Thai cuisine fan

Thank you very much for your comment. It's been very busy time of year at our restaurant so we did not have time to answer this. We always respect all truly voice from our customers. As you notice some restaurant put their own compliments in Tripadvisor so every post feel like from the same person but not like our restaurant.... More

My wife is thai so we always check out the thai restaurants whenever on tour. This thai restaurent is beautifully decorated and Very comfortable . Lovely thai grub but lacking in spice and taste in someways . That said very reasonably priced and good value for money . Well worth a visit .

Great value for money, wonderful service and really pretty decor. The food is lovely, although we felt the curry dishes lacked spice.

Thai Nakorn seems to have become something of a Dorchester institution over the last few years. Owned and operated by a very pleasant young couple, it offers a wide range of delicious (and generously sized) Thai dishes in scrupulously clean and attractive surroundings. It is the kind of local (and locally owned) restaurant that gives a heart to a small... More

I called in to this restaurant when passing through Dorchester. Ordered one of my favourite Thai dishes, Pad Gratiam Prik-Thai with chicken (garlic and pepper sauce). I'm very sorry to say that the dish that arrived was very disappointing. The chicken and vegetables seemed to have been steamed rather than stir fried and there was no taste of garlic or... More

My husband brought me to this restaurant on my birthday recently. The food tastes so fresh, the staff are friendly, and very importantly the place is clean. We happened to mention that it was my birthday, and when my orange sorbet dessert came out, it was on a plate with happy birthday on, with one of the Thai coconut cakes... More
