Always great service and the food is always very tasty. I have been here quite a few times with friends and we all always enjoy it.

We have visited many times as we love the food so much, but I struggle with it's trip advisor rating as it's not just about the food! It's always freezing cold and there's no atmosphere at all. The service is average. For the price you pay, you would want a nice relaxed evening out where as everything but the food... More

Actually I haven't been here so I can't say what it's like inside or what the staff are like in the restaurant. What I can say is I have had take away from here and it is to die for. The food has always been hot and tasty and you can tell it's made with fresh ingredients. Sometimes it has... More

Went for a meal at Nakia Thai last night and was massively disappointed by the service and also the lack of heating, most of us had to sit with coats on as it was that cold (even the staff commented on how cold it was but were unable to move us). No apology received and they didn't even offer us... More

We were quite a large family group who mostly ordered different dishes so between us we sampled quite a lot of the many dishes on offer. Strangely the only one who was not happy with their meal was my wife and I think that this was due to her making the wrong choice. I found the prices a little high... More

Our Naka Thai takeaway is nearly an hour late, nobody is answering either phone line down there, it says online it's been delivered and they have kindly relieved me of £42! Brilliant. 2 family members have gone down there to 'voice their opinion'!

We came here with family that we wouldn't be seeing over Christmas. They had never had Thai before. It was the Friday before Christmas, and they were busy. Starters were great, we did have a problem with the main course as the order was taken incorrectly. They did offer to resolve it, but it wasn't a problem for my daughter.... More

We haven't eaten here in a long time, but glad we made the visit ! Staff are very friendly and helpful, as with all the Thai restaurant we have eaten in everything is made to order. My daughter wanted something not on the menu, but this wasn't a problem, they cooked exactly what she wanted. We had 3 starters and... More
