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.

    I used this restaurant years ago thought it would be a nice change to return back there I was surprised the outside space of the restaurant is no longer used as a seating area for diners seems such a waste of lovely open space facing the river and not being utilised. The food however was still great and the surprise was my sister and I opted for the 2 course set menu be warned there's a lot of food we didn't realise you get ALL the items on the menu we thought we had to choose options for starter and main but it was all demolished anyway! I had a lovely Martini with chilli very moorish and refreshing with a tiny kick at the end !

    - People were allowed in and to wait without wearing masks - Tables were too close - The level of noise was too much and affecting the experience and the staff did nothing to manage that - We had to wait for too long for the staff to come to our table and take our order for drinks - The mocktails were very overpriced - The food was well cooked and flavoursome - Food is generally overpriced - The staff was nice and attentive

    Overall ok experience. The staff were constantly hovering when the restaurant was fairly empty. Food came quick, In about 2 mins, which makes you question how “fresh” it is….

    Food was not what I am used too. Thai food is usually very well prepared and presented. Unfortunately, both areas were lacking on this occasion. 3 out of 10 for Nakhon Thai. Could've given us the heads up the road leading to the restaurant is closed, access is limited and you have to look hard to find it..
