This restaurant provides great service and really nice food. It is probably the most consistently busy place in town. Well worth eating here.

Nakontong Thai restaurant would have to rate as one of the top two or three restaurants in Thames. The food and service are of a very high standard and you would normally be advised to book anytime in the weekends as you run the risk of missing out or having to wait in line for a spare table.

Been to one Thai restaurant and you would pretty much know what to expect. Ordered a sizzling dish but it didn't come with the hot iron plate. They admitted the mistake but took a while to change the bills.

The old saying is always true - it's got to be good if the locals eat there - and whilst the Thai family that run the restaurant may be one of only a few Thai's in the region - all the local Kiwis appeared to be eating here - and it was a Thursday night! Would thoroughly recommend.
