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.

Further Information

Dear diners, to reserve for groups larger than 4 people, please contact the restaurant directly.At Waterfront Studios on Dock Road – close to ExCel London International Exhibition Centre, Royal Victoria DLR station and Emirates cable car station – Nakhon Thai 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 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 is a gem of Docklands and of London, and its set menus are very much worth a shot as well.

Great staff ! Great Food ! Some what on the pricey side ! I paid for set menu for 2, and 4 Drinks ! Roughly 82 nuggets for the meal ! But it's worth it ! Highly recommend, the view was great from upstairs ! Oo forgot to mention the theme and staff clothing ! Thanks for having us & The two brothers in the holiday style white shirts where great service ! Making sure we enjoyed and had enough to eat & drink ! Will come again ! Maybe discounts for the regular guys & promo discounts for returning customer would be a good add on !!

The 'view' isn't great.. even if you are seated by the window. However the great food makes up for it. The decor of the restaurant is really nice. It has an authentic Thai touch. Service at Nakhon Thai was great. Okay, so we were a party of 2 on a Monday evening and it was pretty much dead, but the staff was very polite, well versed in their menu - at least in regards with our questions. To top it all, the food was very affordable. I've had food local to me (deep in East London) which cost more, and was not nearly as good as Nakhon Thai. Fully recommend this place and I will be returning soon :)

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 have recently moved to Royal Victoria Docks and decided to try Nakhon Thai as it is so close to where I now live. The service was great, the food was outstanding and even the wine was exceptional. I really enjoyed my visit and will certainly be returning again and again. I am so happy that Nakhon is my local Thai restaurant!

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.
