Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Came across this and we went in. Lovely food and service. Tempura prawn best I have ever had. Thai Shiraz was really good like a good Aussie Shiraz.

I decided that I haven’t eaten in enough restaurants on Preston Street in recent years and went for Kanok Thai tonight. Never been in here before and it definitely gets a thumbs-up from me. Great food.

In Preston Street, there is a Thai restaurant called "Kanok Thai". Once we entered, we noticed a nauseating smell. A mix of foot stinks and humidity...but that wasn't a problem. We asked the waitress for advice on some clarifications on the menu. She was flawless...on the information given. Some were followed, others totally ignored. We ordered: 'Crispy noodle' and 'Mushroom Sateh' as starters, 'grill chicken' and 'grill prawn' as main course. The starters were good, but the main dish was so-so. A special mention for Anna who was very kind. Average food...unfortunately you can't have everything in life Eh eh eh.More

We collected three dishes from here last night. The pad Thai and papaya salad were both nice. However,the pad spicy duck was awful! It was rendered inedible by far too much salt. It burned my mouth. We tried to call the restaurant and got the...answerphone. We left our contact number but there was no callback! By the way, it took me about 50mins waiting for the food!More

I highly recommend this restaurant if ever you want to eat Thai food in Brighton. It was excellent and it's very inexpensive for the quality they serve. The Thai iced tea was very good. They have a menu for less than 10 pounds for lunch...which is great! The servers are extremely nice and attentive. It's also a great place if you have allergies as they'll make sure that none of the food you are allergic to is in your dish.More

One of the best Thai meals we have had in years! We live in london so we are usually spoiled for choice. The food here was incredibly fragrant and well presented. They also catered very well for our allergies. I would highly reccomend it.

Had a lovely meal at this intimate and small restaurant situated on Preston Street. The restaurant holds approx 20 diners when full which is fine to be honest as you get the personal attentive and friendly service you expect when visiting restaurants. The food served...here was freshly cooked, made with fresh ingredients oozing and infused with Thai flavours, our meals were absolutely delicious. This establishment is really clean, fresh and airy inside. The prices here are extremely reasonable compared to other Thai restaurants in the vicinity, it's highly rated and highly recommended. Commendations to the owner, the staff and the chef. Will be visiting again when next in the area.More

Went for one of their two course lunch set menus for £9, what’s not to like? It seemed all the things that involved a sauce or stock were utterly delightful and anything fried was decidedly disappointing. So stick to the soups and wet curries and...you will be pleasantly surprised. Good depth, plenty of Thai punch with complex flavours for this category. The fried dishes were dreadful. Greasy, bland, overcooked or just plain weird. Best advice is to swerve the fried dishes. One of our party ordered a Creamy Thai Tea thing, that he thoroughly enjoyed but freaked the rest of the table out. The jasmine tea was decent.More

There was no 'meet & greet' when we entered the restaurant, so we found our own table. The waitress brought the menus, but we waited 20 minutes before she took our order. Had to wait 45 minutes to receive our starters followed ny another 50...minutes wait for main course. During our long wait, three sets of people came into the restaurant, hung around to be seated and left because nobody came out to see to them. Two other tables complained about the long wait for food. When the meal eventually arrived, it was mediocre.More

It's around 500metres from the railway station, so only a short walk.
