“All that you hope for from a British Thai restaurant - and a bit more besides”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

My only visit to this restaurant, but I was led here by the Tripadvisor reviews. And, as so often, the reviews were just right - this is a little oasis of calm and Thai good manners, just right if you're travelling on your own and need a refuge. Really good food, great service, good Thai beer. Ahh...
Don't be picky about the bill - yes, you could have bought haddock and chips three times over for that money, and ate it in the rain - but that's not why you came here. Luxuriate.

“Super ood and service”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Always a great meal here, really good food and service to match. Thai mixed starters are a must and the green chicken curry is my favourite, try the Pad Thai as a side with your curry. One of the ladies here has the most amazing memory and remembered us from absolutely ages ago, a really nice touh to make us feel very welcome indeed.

“Good Thai!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We have visited Thai Nakorn a number of times now, and it just seems to get better and better. The menu is quite extensive, and should cater for most tastes.

The restaurant has a fixed menu for lunch, which is quite good value, but obviously has a limited choice.

The evening menu is either 'a la carte' or you can select from a number of set menus (for however many people). Additionally there is a 'Specials' board, which has the odd meal on it that does not figure on the main menu.

The service is efficient and friendly, and also helpful if one is unsure of what to order.

Overall a very good restaurant, and thoroughly recommended.
