They are always welcoming whether I arrive alone or with my friend. Just wanted a light meal. The soup Tom Kha was perfect. I asked for less heat and it was perfect.

This was the first restaurant I ever rated on TripAdvisor back in 2007. When I ate here the first time, I just had to rave about it, and I joined TripAdvisor so I could do so. In the years since, I have eaten at countless Thai restaurants (and rated many here), and I always compare them to this one because... More

Have been there twice and enjoyed both visits. Choose your own "hotness". Liked the Crispy Duck and the Drunken Noodles. Interesting batter-coated shrimp appetizer.

This little gem of a restaurant serves wonderful authentic Thai food. Many of the dishes on the menu are unique to the region of Thailand originally home to the owners/managers. However, the usual Thai choices are available as well. All dishes are prepared spicy but request mild seasoning and your wish will be granted. The service is impeccable and friendly.... More

I have dined in at this restaurant and had food delivered and the food is absolutely delicious. I have always received the food hot with fresh and tasty vegetables nicely seasoned. The Thai tea is to die for, my eight year old grand daughter absolutely loves it (she tried to get me to make it at home). The sticky rice... More

Fresh food, family run, modest atmosphere yet stellar menu presentation and vibrant tastes. E.g. crab fried rice, any drunken noodle dish, culminating w/ mango sticky rice as dessert. Overall, a worthwhile dining experience!

We've eater here for a quick lunch as well as for dinner. It is a small place and seems family run. The food is always fresh and well seasoned. I like the chicken larb -- a good amount of veggies add crunch to the ground chicken with a nice kick from red pepper. My husband twice has gotten the drunken... More

This place is in a strip mall, hidden from view of the main road. Unpretentious but welcoming atmosphere. I can't eat spicy food, but fortunately their menu includes milder items. I had the crab fried rice, which was just right for me. People who like hot Thai food might find that entree a little bland, but there are plenty of... More

This tucked away restaurant near my house needs to be put on the map. Unfortunately, I only reserve my "5" star restaurants for my absolute favorites, but I'm definitely giving Thai Nakorn a SOLID 4.5 stars. The food is fantastic. I dined with three people, to include a child and our food was incredible. The tofu vegetable soup isn't on... More
