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

Came here for a birthday meal for a change as we don't often have Thai food. We had a set menu meal to ensure a bit of variety and what a good decision that was. The mixed starter consisted of sesame prawn, toast mini pancake rolls, satay and several different pastry parcels all served on a fantastically decorated platter with... More

Really lovely thai food. Very welcoming. Beautiful decor. Good if you have a few of you - some big round tables and areas where they can have longer tables.

Have been here numerous times & never disappointed. The stir fried battered aubergine was amazing. Great food, good value & friendly service, what more could you ask for
