Lovely Thai restaurant - beautiful carved wooden tables, good menu with a wide range of interesting options, food was amazing and staff were really friendly. A great evening, thank you.

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

Visited here last week for an evening meal whilst staying near Dorchester. The welcome was friendly and the place looks great inside. Really enjoyed the food - the Kanom Pang Na Gai starter in particular was absolutely delicious. Each course is generous so I could only manage a starter and main. Friendly service throughout - I would definitely visit if... More

Always a very warm welcome here. A wide variety of food, the service is faultless, plenty of wines to suit every palate, and, if you like Thai food, this is the place to go. I can recommend the shared starers

Went here with a local to Dorchester - who's never been to a Thai before or even knew it was there... We had a mixed platter to start - very nice, good selection, hot and tasty. We then had a selection of mains to share, Penang, A stir fry and a veg dish. All were well cooked, hot and tasty.... More
