Yum! I was in the mood for Thai last night and Thai Na-Korn popped up in a search. I'd not noticed it before so we decided to drive by and it looked OK. What a lovely surprise. It's a small-ish place with maybe a dozen tables and simple décor. The server was attentive and pleasantly quirky. The food was delicious!... More

My wife, son, and I had dinner here this week. This was our second time and we love the way they season everything. My son not so much, but he is a straight teriyaki chicken kid and they don't have that on the menu. Both times we've been here were positive experiences but the dish I ordered Tom Yum Talay... More

Thai Nakorn took over a small take out place with the absolutely best Thai food in the world, called Keo's. Keo was the personal cook to the ambassador from Thailand, who met an Army NCO at Ft Belvoir, so the food was fabulous. Thai Naakorn did a nice job of making it a very nice room, for being in a...

I discovered this place about a year ago and strongly considered moving closer to it because the food is fantastic! I had the Tom Yum Kai and fried wontons this time with hot green tea...so nice and tasty. This place is pretty small so it gets crowded around noon. Definitely recommend this place!

I was staying in town for business and Googled local restaurants. I found Thai Nakorn and decided to give it a try. The service was quick and friendly and the food was amazing. I ordered the cilantro chicken and my boyfriend got the seafood salad (dressing was spicy but AMAZING). We were both very happy with our meals. Left feeling... More

I had lunch here today, and I found this place to be fantastic! Service was kind, the food came out quickly, and they have a fabulous $8.59 lunch deal. I'd go back again.

We've been to Thai restaurants in the area and this place is the best. I love their Pad thai and Thai ice tea. I recommend the restaurant for Thai food lover.

We chose this restaurant because we love Thai food and it was rated really well on Trip advisor. It was really great! I recommend the Pad See Ew, the fried wontons and the crab fried rice!! All delicious and abundant. The waiter was so sweet and kind and non-intrusive. It is a perfect family restaurant.

Thai Nakorn is our go-to place for carryout. Fast service; delicious food; large portions at a great price. This place is a real find. Need I say more? If so -- the peanut chicken is out of this world!
