Our menu offers a perfect blend of bold flavors with traditional, old-world recipes in a modern presentation. Using only the finest ingredients, we created unique dishes layered with flavors. Our menu is best enjoyed when served family-style, though our portion sizes vary according to the dish. Most of our dishes are best when accompanied by rice.
What a gem! Delightful menu options and impeccable service. I cannot wait to go back.
Thank you, Lisa! We so much appreciate your visit and your positive review. We hope to see you again soon - note we have curbside pickup of carry-out orders during this trying time!! Sam
The food was beautifully presented and delicious, and they took great care with my gluten concerns. Now my fave restaurant in Evanston!
Thank you, Ann!! Short but sweet - we hope to see you again soon! Sam
This place is so fantastic. The dishes are inventive (you won't see the usual pad thai on this menu) and delicious. All the servers are attentive, helpful, and so knowledgeable about the food and drinks etc. The owners will typically pay a visit to each table and check in on how you're enjoying your visit.
On weekends it can be quite busy and a little bit noisy but on week nights the place is a little less crowded and the room has a wonderful relaxed cozy vibe.
Thanks so much, FTD!! We appreciate your comments and hope to see you again soon! Sam
Food was spectacular. Very tasty. Excellent amount of spice. Sauces are light. Food is very fresh. Vegetables and fish in particular are high quality.
Thank you so much, Neil! We're glad you noticed some of the things we put so much thought and care into, and we hope to see you again soon! Sam
This is my second time at the restaurant and the food was outstanding both times. It was quiet on this weeknight but I think they are pretty busy on the weekends. I highly recommend trying the white fish appetizer!
Thank you, Marge! You are too kind. We hope your third visit is soon! Sam
My husband and I finally tried NaKorn after I had been eyeing the place for well over a year. I have a deep and abiding love for Thai food, there's really no good reason that it took me this long to get there. Anyways, it happened to be Restaurant Week so there was a special prix fixe menu which was very fortuitous indeed as it let us sample more dishes at a bit of a discount. We tried the popcorn chicken (excellent) and the mushroom "scallops" for our appetizers, and then I got the seafood braised in coconut milk (basically a very seafood-heavy Tom Kha soup) and hubs got the curry chicken - all of it really delicious. I will pass on the "scallops" again - they were OK, just didn't blow me away (and when you say "scallop" I end up just wanting an actual scallop) - but the popcorn chicken was EXCELLENT, the seafood was fresh and plentiful (and appropriately cooked - the mussels were open and plump, not over-cooked and shriveled like they tend to get) - and the chicken was rich and flavorful without being dry (a true feat of expertise with chicken breasts). I had dessert but only a few bites because I was pretty full by that time. The drinks were delicious and well-crafted; we are totally THOSE PEOPLE who do some pretty fancy mixology at home so we're all picky and stuff. These cocktails cut muster for sure. Fantastic food for the price. Our only tiny qualm was waiting a bit for the check at the end of the night but that can be a moving target of expectations which I understand. We're the kind of folks who are DONE when we are done though I know not everyone is like that. Service was friendly and attentive, space has a cool vibe and decor... there's really nothing stopping you. Go!
Thank you thank you thank you, so much, for the wonderful thoughts!! It seems like you dine and review a lot, so if you can tell us what we might have done to earn that Fifth Star we sure would appreciate it! Fours are great, but with a 4.6 average we now need two Fives in order to just get back to even on average from the single Four!! We hate math! But, anyway, if you could tell us how we could someday bump up in your eyes, we'd appreciate it! We hope to see you again soon!
The food and service are always great!
Thank you so much!
Everything was fantastic! The food was delicious and beautiful, and the service was A+ on a full night. A favorite!
Thank you, Sluszcek!!! Sam
naKorn is a wonderful experience - amazing thoughtful food and service and a great vibe that’s caring. Highly recommend!
Thank you! Sam
Beautifully presented and flavorful meals. Arctic Char was mouth watering, and the banana cake for dessert was just the right amount of sweet. Server kind of forgot about my friend and I by the time we were ready for the check, but it was Valentine's Day and the room had filled with perhaps more demanding patrons. Expensive for a couple of single ladies!
Thank you, Linda! We're so happy you liked us, and were understanding that your visit was on the restaurant industry's busiest day of the year! We hope to see you again soon. Sam
The food was good, the drinks were better, especially the housemade ginger ale. The waitress didn’t seem to know the menu well. All the staff was very kind and attentive.
Hi, Willie, and thanks for coming and for posting! We appreciate you coming and posting. You said good things, but gave only 3 stars. We'd very much like to know what we might have done to get that 3 up to 4 or 5! Math says it takes six 5-star reviews to make up the ground from a single 3-star in keeping our 4.7 average. Customers' opinions are very important to us, but without any narrative we have no way to improve! If you have the time and inclination, please let us know! Thank you again! Sam
Good food, service, and environment. Enjoyed the custom drinks.
Thank you, Brenda! Sam
My favorite place, it never disappoints!
Thank you, Kriss!! Sam
as a return customer, it was no surprise that this meal was so good. care was taken in its prep and service. we'll be back!
Thank you, Kim!!! We hope to see you again soon. Sam
Food was delicious and the service was very good. I would go back
Thank you, Debbie! Short but the sweetest! We hope to see you again soon. Sam
Awesome food and great ambience- finally authentic Thai food in America!!!
Thank you, Kand!! Sam
Enjoyed it. Great food and service. Delicious drinks too.
Thank you, Brad! Sam
Wonderful, attentive service. Delicious food, beautiful presentation. Cozy atmosphere with dim lighting. Can’t wait to go back. We didn’t have room for dessert, but the desserts looked stupendous. We loved the arctic char in coconut curry.
NaKorn is a jewel. The drinks and food are imaginative, the flavors intense but not mouth-burning hot. It is an excellent choice for a quick meal or night out with friends.
We ordered a number of interesting plates and shared them all. While everything was beautifully presented and flavorful, the Pink Pomelo shrimp appetizer won the evening. Just a lovely delicious dining experience. We will absolutely visit again.
Thank you so much and we hope to see you again soon! Sam
Great , loved the uniqueness of the dishes, everything tasted wonderful .
Really enjoyed everything. Nice portions of food without much filler. All the ingredients seemed to be good quality and fresh. Flavors were well balanced. My wife and I will be back.
Thank you so much! It's so very nice not only to have delivered for your special dinner, but also that you notice and appreciate that we take pains to avoid the old restaurant trick of a pile of cheap filler on the plate (like the pound of fries one would typically get at a steakhouse). Thank you so much, and we hope to see you again soon! Sam
Great and interesting food!! Portions are a little small.
After ordering our meals, we waited and waited and still no food. Finally, our server came over and apologized that he forgot to order our meals!
He didn’t offer to compensate us for his screwup.
Always fantastic. Inventive, beautifully prepared and plated Thai cuisine. Don’t come here looking for pad thai. What you’ll find is so much better.
This was my third visit and I haven't been disappointed once. The food is consistently creative and delicious. The portion sizes are great, filling but not too much like you might get at other Thai restaurants. Highly recommend and I hope I have more reasons to go back.
This was a great gem of a find in Evanston. The food is so creative and delicious. The service, everyone from the hostess to the person offering water to the waiter were so friendly. The owner even came over to the table to check in. I would highly recommend this restaurant!
I loved everything about this restaurant! I brought my husband here for his birthday. We ran into a friend whose wife is Thai and said they go here often because the food is so good. He also mentioned that they are constantly adding new foods to the menu. I had artic char with ginger and pomegranate seeds and a wonderful sauce, my husband had swordfish which was fresh and spicy and so good that he was spooning every last drop of the sauce from the bowl! We also had a delicious creme brulee and chocolate mousse for dessert (they brought the mousse with a candle and a birthday card signed by the entire staff!). We will definitely be going back. :)
Thank you so much, Kathy! We're so happy, particularly that your husband tried the swordfish - just added that night to our new fall menu. We hope to see you again soon! Sam
We went on a double date. The server was nice, it was quiet and most importantly the food was fantastic! I highly recommend the “big fish”
Fresh, unique flavors but true to Thai. Outstanding blends of taste. Love this place.
The food was delicious and the atmosphere was wonderful! I highly recommend this place!
Always great food, service, ambiance. We love this place.
Adorable decor, amazing unique food, super fresh, seasonal... service was outstanding. Highly recommend!
Beautifully presented food and great service. Owners stopped by table numerous times to make sure everything was ok. Flavorful Thai inspired dishes. Not your usual noodle shop but Delicious well seasoned dishes. No pad Thai here but enjoyed flavors and freshness of dishes and ingredients. Can’t wait to go back
Delicious food, great service, cool atmosphere, beautiful presentation.
Usually 5 stars across the board. Unfortunately the waiter was over extended, and thus it took longer than usual to have dinner. Nonetheless, it was a wonderful time with my granddaughter and niece!
What we love about Thai food, the layers of flavors and freshness were on point at NaKorn. We shared family style which was super tricky with four people on an outdoor table but we managed. The crispy rice iceberg wedge was outstanding. The special arctic char was so delicious. The coconut curry braised chicken was delightful. We never missed the common Thai dishes. Everything on the menu is more like the chef's special then a regular menu item. Took a while to have our orders taken and be served outside which was really the only complaint. Food was worth any wait.
Thanks, Blueskies, for your thoughtful review. We'll try and do better on the service on your next visit, which we hope happens soon! Sam
