“Decent Thai food, good choice, not too expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

Have been there twice and enjoyed both visits. Choose your own "hotness". Liked the Crispy Duck and the Drunken Noodles. Interesting batter-coated shrimp appetizer.

“Pleasant Surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

This little gem of a restaurant serves wonderful authentic Thai food. Many of the dishes on the menu are unique to the region of Thailand originally home to the owners/managers. However, the usual Thai choices are available as well. All dishes are prepared spicy but request mild seasoning and your wish will be granted. The service is impeccable and friendly. Plus, the restaurant is clean. Prices of the dishes are reasonable. For example, a small bowl of lemon grass soup with chicken is $3.95. But more important, the small is on the large-size with it actually an American vegetable bowl priced at $5.95. Take-out is available as well. For extra savings, copies of the take-out menu contains a 10% coupon. The display is located near the exit/entrance door.

As for location, you'll find Thai Nakorn in a small strip mall approximately a block off of Route 1/Richmond Hwy. on Cooper Road. If you are staying at the Mount Vernon/Fort Belvoir Best Western, it is within walking distance. Simply head towards the McDonalds; go to the stop light; turn right onto Cooper Road; the strip mall will be on your left; Thai Nakorn is located in the center 8733-F perpendicular to Cooper Road.

Enjoy your meal!

“Great Thai Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

I have dined in at this restaurant and had food delivered and the food is absolutely delicious. I have always received the food hot with fresh and tasty vegetables nicely seasoned. The Thai tea is to die for, my eight year old grand daughter absolutely loves it (she tried to get me to make it at home). The sticky rice with mango is a must for desert!

“Thai-licious :-)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

Fresh food, family run, modest atmosphere yet stellar menu presentation and vibrant tastes. E.g. crab fried rice, any drunken noodle dish, culminating w/ mango sticky rice as dessert. Overall, a worthwhile dining experience!
