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 had a great meal, large tasty portions. The 2 chilli lamb, was significantly hotter than the 2 chilli green Thai curry, which was superb. The staff were friendly and extremely efficient whilst also dealing with large parties.
Good atmosphere. Spent a lovely family evening. Tasty food and an appropriate service level. Money = quality. Will be coming back for any other occasion.
Lovely place with a nice décor next to the water. Food was very nice indeed and had the right amount of chilli in it. I thought it was very reasonably priced. Table cloth and linen napkins. Enough staff around who are extremely friendly and helpful to make sure you have an attentive service. I will be back. I don't expect or want more from a restaurant.
