Thai
SAWASDEE KHA,

The flavours of Thai cooking are easy to identify: Lemon Grass, Fish Sauce, Coriander, Galangal, Garlic, Sweet Basil and Coconut Milk; all combined to make a harmonious and unforgettable experience, as is its aesthetics.

With its philosophy of decorated dishes, beautifully set out in small groups, accompanied with exquisite vegetable carvings and complemented with tiny bowls of clear soup steaming beside communal pots of fluffy fragrant rice. All elegantly placed together to be served in the manner for sharing.
Thai food is known for its diversity as each dish reflects heavily upon its geographical origins, thus by drawing upon these influences we can create stunning culinary masterpieces.

Customer admittance (AGE)
Due to Nakhon Thai not offering (baby changing area, high chairs, pushchair storing area etc.) We unfortunately cannot accommodate children under the age of 12 during evening service (6pm). No children of babies under the age of 12.

This is by far the best Thai restaurant in East London. The food is always amazingly delicious, full of flavours and texture. The ambience is really lovely, Thai staff are very polite and pleasant. 10out of 10 for me, every time.

Have been a regular now for over a year and as always food and service are second to none. Be careful what you order as portions are of good size.

Booked on Open table very last minute for my wife birthday on Monday 12 Aug.
They went out of their way to give us the best table in the house. The food & desert (& birthday cake) presentation was amazing and it was really yummy. The mango & sticky rice was to die for!!!
The service was fantastic. The service was on point.

I took my girlfriend here to celebrate her 25th and I must say.. I was thoroughly joyed with the experience, food and service of Nakhon Thai. I definitely plan on going back. I ordered the prawn house rice and added beef to it which was no issue and got the green Thai curry with prawns too (I really wanted the spice) and it delivered in full. The cocktails are very very well priced and come and big glasses, so value for money and the taste.. is just different. We felt as though we were on holiday.

I ordered a passion fruit punch (favourite) and later ordered a Zombie, my partner ordered a blue Hawaiian and a frozen raspberry or strawberry daiquiri. These cocktails were amazing, the staff were amazing, we even had asked their opinion on which of the cocktails were the loudest in lool haha, the staff were really nice. I got a taste of the daiquiri (second favourite) and it tasted like an ice cream it was that good. I asked them to bring out a cupcake with her name on the plate and stuff and they one upped it and brought out this amazing pudding (which was homemade by one for the staff). Must say that this place was really really worth it and it’s a little secluded so it’s not busy around the area. I’d definitely say to go at night as it’s a really nice vibe in the restaurant too.

Thoroughly enjoyed and will be revisiting.

The food has gone downhill and the last time I paid a visit to another branch which no longer exists. The chicken satay was plain with no spices and very dry. The main course made up for it a little. Not somewhere I would return to in a hurry.

very good place to eat. lovely.
however requested upstairs for a birthday, but they said it was fully booked.
stayed for over 2 hours but upstairs remained empty throughout the whole time.
customer there who have made a reservation and have a special event should be able to sit there

. Me and my friend wanted to pray before eating since it was Ramadan- they waiter looked at us as if we were aliens? Kept asking us if we were sure we wanted to pray. Made us feel very uncomfortable. Food didn’t make up for it either. Pineapple rice tasted of NOTHING there was no taste?? The curry we ordered had 3 “spices” on it next to its description on the menu, it tasted of water.. the drinks were good.

As usual the food and service were fabulous. We booked online and tried to add an extra person late but they thankfully managed to squeeze an extra seat in which was very good of them.

Wound definitely go back !

Food - well balanced menu with plenty of variety. Flavoursome well presented dished. Generous portions (didn't really need a starter). Main course a bit overpriced at around £16.00 plus any sides/extras and about £8. Probably don't need the sides as main dishes has veg.
Service - hit and miss. Not much of a welcome on arrival. Not much explanation of the dishes (caused over ordering). Too quick to clear away - I was still eating although my friend had finished. No service after mains cleared away - no offer of dessert, coffee, bill!
Good cocktails, nice views once inside. A bit scary getting to location by car at night - you have to park in the deserted road round the corner and walk under the main road bridge

Arrived early but still greeted with request to be out before next service (which was 2hrs away), so not particularly welcoming. Also took a while to get attention to get bill which was a little inconsistent with the greeting. Apart from that service was fine despite reataurant being busy. Food was very good and prompt and well worth the money.

Spotlessly clean with very attentive staff. Nice comfortable atmosphere. Our food was very good, jungle curry, sticky rice, ped phad khing (chicken & ginger) plus noodles. Thought the noodles were a bit dense and lacking in flavour but overall good food. The house red wine was very drinkable too. Its very local to us and a great restaurant to visit nearby.
