Delicious, unfussy. I had Duck Pad Khing - lots of meat and fresh vegetables with slivers of fresh ginger. Husband had Chicken Kang Massaman...mild curry with coconut milk, peanut and fresh vegetables. Good value, friendly service

With an 18 months old baby at home, any evenings out (alone) are very precious to us. The restaurant offers a small menu choice, but 'OMG it delicious!' finally we're very happy that we've found authentic style Thai food served in a beautiful style setting, This date night was magical - highly recommend Thank you

We received a warm greeting on arrival and we hadn't booked a table. The menu is extensive with dishes which cater even for those who prefer less spicy tastes. I would recommend the duck dish as a main and the Thai fish cakes as a starter. Service is attentive but not in excess. Prices are reasonable including the drinks. It's... More

My husband I visited the Thai Nakorn on Saturday 18 June, we booked as we wanted the table next to the window. It was Dorchester Carnival and we wanted to see the floats go by. We had a starter Chicken Satay and Fish Cakes-- lovely. I ordered Chicken in Sweet & Sour Sauce, my husband had a curry. We both... More

We popped in for lunch and it was cheap, tasty and spicy (which is great as so many restaurants seem to play down the spice ) we really enjoyed it will pop back again one day.

we went relatively early on a Friday night with no reservation and were seated with no problem. The decor is lovely and we spent ages just looking at the amazing carvings on the tables! The staff were friendly and polite but not over familiar or forever coming back to the table. We were asked at one point if we'd like... More

We went here because we like Thai food, and it was right next door to our hotel. The service was prompt and good. Unfortunately the food was quite variable. I struck lucky with my crispy duck main course, but my wife said hers tasted only of chilli.

This friendly, family-run restaurant has been my first choice for a long time. The food is delicious & reasonably priced. The service is quiet & tactful. Jungle elephant reliefs bring a touch of the exotic to the tables. It is all scrupulously clean & peaceful. For entertaining my visitors it offers a happily tranquil atmosphere for sharing good food &... More

We had a table booked for dinner on Saturday night, we were quickly shown to our table but it took 20/25 minutes for anyone to come and take our drinks order. Despite the slow service to begin with when the food arrived it was delicious. There was a great choice of starters and mains on the menu and the food... More
