An unexpected pleasure

Being fairly new to the area, my husband and I were eager to try this spot, having passed by it at least once a week on our shopping trips to Kemptville. We had our opportunity this past Wednesday, having an out of town guest who arrived early evening and not feeling much like cooking ourselves... read more

The female owner of this restaurant is an incredibly rude and mean to the service staff. The staff are overworked and underpaid. I heard her verbally abusing one of the servers. Never go to this place and support such a horrible woman. Food was expensive, but okay to eat. Hopefully they will go out of business because she is exploiting... More

We went there on a Thursday afternoon, thinking it shouldn't be busy. We were wrong. Seems like they need extra staff. I am very familiar with Thai cuisine, so I know what to order. I went for one of the Curry chicken menu dish. I was expecting it to be spicy, but understandably it was a toned down (Westernized). I... More

Aug 5, 2015 visited this restaurant with 4 adults celebrating a birthday supper. We have eaten in their Brockville location in past and very good. The service was pleasant but slow and poor advice from server on food selection. Food was less that good with items bland as well as several burnt or overcooked. We left half of the food... More

I went to this restaurant with my friend's family for her birthday, and we ordered several dishes to share between the five of us. First, after about half an hour, they brought us one curry dish... Without rice. Then after another hour, they brought us one dish of rice. Finally, after another half an hour, when we complained, the manager... More

Not bad, not great. Highly forgettable. Service was seriously slow. All in all, not worth the wait. Won't be recommending to friends.

No wonder its the second best restaurant in Kemptville. Had a wonderful pad Thai and the lady at the counter was so nice, we talked for a while since I'm out of town and a Habs fan there was plenty to chat about :-). If Thai tickles your fancy, have a bite at Nakhon you won't be disappointed!

As good as any Thai restaurant in Ottawa. We love going to this restaurant as a couple or with friends. You are never rushed, unless you ask to be. One of Kemptville's addictions. My wife is Celiac and the staff are knowledgeable and there are plenty of gluten free options.
