For a meal that highlights the best flavours of the Thai kitchen, head over to Nakhon Thai Restaurant in London’s Docklands and be swept away by the taste of coconut, chilli, galangal, lemongrass and a wide range of other fresh Thai ingredients. From their stunning waterfront location on the eastern side of the Royal Victoria Docks, Nakhon Thai London serves dishes that are completely halal, made with local produce and seafood brought in fresh daily from Spitalfields and Billingsgate markets. Enjoy a selection of mocktails to whet your appetite before chowing down. Reserving ahead is essential for a meal at this upscale Thai restaurant.
At Waterfront Studios on Dock Road – close to ExCel London International Exhibition Centre, Royal Victoria DLR station and Emirates cable car station – Nakhon Thai Restaurant is all about elegance whether you’re dining indoors or al fresco. Given London’s rather famous reputation for rain it’s probably more likely you’ll be dining indoors, but do not fear, the main dining area is stylish and equipped with a cocktail bar, and there’s also a lovely and intimate mezzanine area. This restaurant is very possibly one of the most pleasant in Docklands to enjoy Thai cuisine that goes way beyond the London norm.
We say beyond the norm because although Nakhon Thai London makes use of classic Thai ingredients, there’s a definite feel of gourmet with each beautifully-presented plate. You’d be wise to try the himmaparn (stir-fried chicken with cashew), pad phad khing (roasted duck sauteed with mushrooms, pineapple, ginger and spring onion) or the vegetarian Monk’s Delight with green curry, basil and eggplant. Any of those, or anything off the chef’s special menu; they’re nothing short of delightful. Nakhon Thai Restaurant is a gem of Docklands and of London, and its set menus are very much worth a shot as well.
We booked the restaurant for our wedding anniversary and it didn’t disappoint. Upon arrival we were shown to our table overlooking the dockside by very attentive staff. The service was superb and the food was very well presented and very tasty. We mentioned to Sayed, who was one of the waiters, that it was our anniversary and at the end of our meal he presented us with a liquor on the house. I would recommend this restaurant if you are in London on business or pleasure.
The food here is delicious! Always cooked so well and full of flavour. The restaurant has a good atmosphere and is decorated in keeping with its Thai theme. The staff here are so friendly and attentive. This is defiantly one of my favourite restaurants! 10*
Excellent service and food. Great value. The beef Thai green curry was great. The jungle curry is thin but very spicy. Would defo come back again
