About Nakhon Thai
For a meal that highlights the best flavours of the Thai kitchen, head over to Nakhon Thai in the 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 – at Waterfront Studios on Dock Road close to ExCel London International Exhibition Centre, Royal Victoria DLR station and Emirates cable car station – Nakhon Thai 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 on elegantly plated dishes such as 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.

Dear diners, to reserve for groups larger than 4 people, please contact the restaurant directly.
My friends heard about it from word of mouth and we all were not disappointed. Would definitely come again and try a new dish each time.
Fantastic, friendly service and delicious food. Didn't have to wait too long for the food to be delivered and a great choice of dishes to choose from.
Great atmosphere, very friendly staff and efficient service. Above all, delicious food and would definitely visit again in the future, as well as recommend to others.
My experience of Nakhon Thai was great, been a number of times and the quality is just the best every single visit. The food is fantasic and the service is great too.
Absolutely brilliant restaurant. It's in s lovely location. We sat upstairs, near the window which was pretty much requested when we got there and the staff were very accommodating. It was a beautiful view of the Royal Docks. The food along with the service was also fantastic. A must try place for sure. Cannot wait to go back when it gets warmer. Thanks Nakhon Thai!
I was very impressed with my visit to Nakhon Thai. The staff went out of their way to provide excellent service (we sat outside in the evening but they assured us that if we got a bit chilly it would be no problem to move us inside) and the food and cocktails were delicious.
Truly terrible service and the restaurant wasn't even half full. There was no shortage of wait staff, they are just disinterested. Always trying to avoid eye contact, myself and other diners had to shout over to the bar where they were stood drinking drinks (nice for them to have the option!) and generally standing around, this included what appeared to be the manager. 3 of them took the time to reset a table for 4 while the patrons sat waiting for service. I couldn't, in good faith, leave a tip for the 1 member of staff that seemed capable, because I imagine it's a shared pool where the 5 other members will get a cut for doing less than nothing. The food was okay, my pad thai tasted like they used a bottle of tomato ketchup, the duck main was overcooked - nothing "tender" about it at all, but my company did seem to enjoy her meal.
Lovely restaurant in a lovely location. Service was very nice and welcoming. Everything we ordered was tasty and fresh. My only critique would be that they could increase the serving sizes a little more especially since they charge above average prices. Would recommend this restaurant for special occasions
Set around the excel centre this restaurant is very good,panoramic views of the dock ,the menu was extensive and each course was professionally presented, the staff were dressed in authentic attire and all the staff and management were very friendly.
Absolutely amazing !! Good prices !!! Very posh and proper!! Staff were amazing and catered to all our needs.. made a complete overall romantic experience for my boyfriend !! He was so mesmerised! Thank you !
The food was lovely, restaurant is great. However, it seems they can't handle being busy. Waited well over an hour between each course. The staff were so rushed off their feet that they weren't taking time to listen to orders properly. They brought me the wrong desert twice, so I ended up cancelling the order. Would recommend it, but don't go on a Friday or Saturday, they just can't handle it.
Was excellent food and service one of the best Thai restaurants I have been to food was delicious excellent again would definitely recommend if I was down here again would definitely return
Good Thai food, excellent service and a beautiful location. A warning to the ladies out there, for some bizarre reason they think one toilet can cater for a large restaurant full of women and children, expect to queue...
Been to the Nakhon several times, as a couple and with family or friends in groups, very friendly, attentive staff, nice atmosphere, good food, which is reasonably priced. We'll be back...
Great fresh food, service brilliant, Would highly recommend. Staff brilliant and in traditional dress. Very well priced menu, lovely place Can't wait to eat outside in summer, lovely outside eating area.
This is my favorite spot in Royal Victoria. The food is delicious, the staff friendly and well trained, the location very relaxing and comfortable. 10++++ Will be back a lot

Amazing service and food (I always have the Massaman curry and coconut rice )friendly staff and free mint choc at the end - heaven :@)
Nice location, staff pleasant, not expensive for London. Food was very nice but service a bit slow. Starters arrived quickly then had to wait an hour for main course

tasty thai food, nice accompanying wines, lively atmosphere, friendly service, live music on xmas eve. starters were good and the thai green curry was excellent
The food was good, staff was good, menu was good. The cutlery, especially the plates were not up to the standard as stains were visible.
i had a lovely time,nice place and lovely people, ambiance was great and my daughter i enjoyed the service and the food. lovely location too
Food was good but did not think it was as good as previous visit same time in 2015. so maybe chef has changed. Service was good.
nice atmosphere. foods comes out pretty quick but the food is average not the best Thai food I have eaten before. the service is very good.
Lovely customer service, friendly staff. However Food was inconsistent. Some dishes were a good size and flavourful. However some dishes we just could not eat and didnt taste good.
Service was a little slow, had to get the attention of waiters. Food was overly priced for the quality and size of portion also some food arrived cold. When there was service it was with a smile. Good views and parking available.
Nice location, overlooking the docks. Food was ok, would be better if they were more fresh. Might be back but depends. Drinks were nice though.
Amazing atmosphere, great food and good customer service. Would defiantly go back.
Fantastic!! Definitely recommend to anyone! Service and food is top quality
