Staff were attentive and friendly. Ordered some duck and cashew nuts in medium spicy strenght. Could been a bit more spicy, but thats my own fault. The food was served after just 10-15 minutes!

We had been on the road for 6 hours and stopped in Thames for dinner. Half the restaurants in Thames are closed after 5 so there's not much choice. This one had a trip advisor sign with 4 stars so we picked it. I don't know how it could be a 4 star restaurant, certainly not the decor or tables,... More

We had a couple of birthdays at our place in December. So we thought Thai would be good. We enjoyed a range of tasty dishes. The service was very good. We will bring our friends back.

My wife and myself visited this restaurant in February 2017 and while perusing the menu took notice of what other diners were receiving. We decided to share a main meal as the servings are quite generous. It was a good idea. We enjoyed a cashew nut stir fry with chicken and were not disappointed. The meal arrived in good time,...

Just not very nice. Satay chicken stringy and chewy, moneybags tasteless, chicken/prawn stirfry with cashew just dead boring. Seriously saddest thai i have had ever... and i love thai food. Didnt think you could really go wrong, but i was wrong... you can.

We visited the Nakontong for dinner when we stayed in Thames in February and we were both very pleased we did. The service from the lady & gentleman working there was fabulous and the restaurant was quite busy too. We had a Red and Green chicken curry (medium) each and they were both lovely, with just the right amount of... More

Service was quick and friendly. Food choices were plentiful and adapted to dietary needs. Food made with fresh vegetables and beautifully cooked and presented. Good drink selection and wine list was reasonably priced. I had ginger chicken, jasmine rice and a glass of Merlot for less that $30. Would definitely recommend for any one visiting Thames who loved Thai food.

Thank Janne N
