“Thai Na Khon”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

There is an old saying about judging a book by its cover and it applies to the experience at a restaurant on a busy street, at 6 p.m., when I am the only person eating. There may have been a good reason no one else was there.

The 'Exotic Vegetable' soup was hot and nicely spiced but peas, corn, mushrooms and bean sprouts do not seem exotic. Portions were good sized and the food was presented attractively on the plate with carrots made into flowers for garnish.

There were a lot of people (judging from the loud laughter) in the kitchen area but very little attention to the dining room.

“A warning sign”
Reviewed 3 February 2013

We visited Thai Na Khon this evening after a long pause. We were really expecting the
experience, but unfortunately it was not good. The papaya salad wasn't nearly as good as before: the papaya was too green, even hard to eat, and the peanuts were absent. Their coconut milk soup was as good as before, but our favourite dish of squid with garlic and pepper was a big disappointment. The squid was served as chunky rings, not craftily scored thin slices as before. Also it was not prepared properly – we could not eat all of it, and there were pieces of the squid "bone" in the dish. Hopefully this was a momentary blunder, but it put me off this place for a while at least.

“The place to go for Thai food”
Reviewed 12 December 2012 via mobile

I came here on a Saturday evening with my family and young daughter. I could see the restaurant was very busy, but this didn't seem to matter to the staff as they were very efficient and made us feel at home very quickly.

Our starters and mains were really tasty and the prices were very reasonable. I had satay chicken and then chilli beef and would recommend both. Our daughter was catered for well too with kids plates and cutlery.

I will definitely go back, maybe to try their buffet lunch.

“Buffet Lunch”
Reviewed 6 November 2012

Tom Yam Gai soup was fantastic....and the rest was pretty good too. Only did the buffet lunch - but was great value for money here. Think it was €8.50 - and that includes tea and coffee (and biscuits). Lunch had a nice salad, soupl and chouce of about 4 curries, boiled and fried rice,, boodles and some wee snacks (drumstricks, onoin rings etc).
decor was really nice, staff were really Thai and very pleasant.
