Brilliant food!

We arrived late into Dorchester and booked into our hotel. It was too late to eat at the hotel and they suggested a few places that might still be open. We decided to visit the Thai Nakorn as it was pretty much next door to our hotel. We were very glad that we did. Excellent food and very... read more

Excellent restaurant with great, tasty food in comfortable surroundings. The only down side is the rather pricey Singha Beer in small bottles £3.25, which works out at over £6.50 a pint, which I think is a little naughty, even for a restaurant. I'll forgive them though because of the quality of the food.

We chose to go here for our 37th wedding anniversary, and were not disappointed. The service was excellent with the food freshly cooked. The batter on the sweet and sour was so light it was delicious. We tend to come here for special occasions as it is not cheap, but it is well worth the money. I would heartily recommend... More

This is our favorite restaurant, it is not the cheapest by any means, but the food is out of this world so do not mind paying for such quality. My favorite in the Red Thai Curry with King Prawn, the aromatic flavour is incredible. My wife loves the duck dishes, so tender just falls apart. I can definitely recommend this... More

I come here on a regular basis and it never disappoints. The service is fabulous, the food is fresh and very very tasty. I particularly like the buffet on a Sunday which provides freshly cooked food to order at a very reasonable price. The restaurant itself is comfortable and the staff are friendly and will help you if you aren't... More

The food was interesting. The soup came with shell fish. The satay wasn't quite as was expected, but was ok. The sweet corn fritters were not spicy. I had the battered fish with spicy chilli sauce without basil. This was very tasty. But unfortunately the batter did not last the ten minute journey. The pad thai was congealed and tasteless....

Thank you very much for your time to review our restaurant. I took your order myself and told my staff that maybe fake order with this one because you dictate me how to cook every dish your way. It took me on a busy night 25-30 minutes on the phone. The squid and sweetcorn cake you ordered will not be... More

We visited on New Years Eve for a quiet meal with friends and the Thai Nakorn fitted the bill exactly. We started with traditional Thai fish cakes with sauce, then had a variety of dishes: sweet and sour prawns, Thai prawn curry, prawn pad Thai (noodles) and beef in oyster sauce. Whilst we had three prawn dishes, each had its... More

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
