I had the usual pleasure of lunching at Nakhon Thai. What a delight! Tan's chef made a wonder fish dish. It was lightly breaded sautéed haddock cubes. The flavours were over the top. If you like baccala or bacalao (cod) you'll love this hoddock dish. You will appreciate the saltiness offset by the fresh cilantro and crispy Julianne vegetables. Two... More

Whether you go for lunch or dinner, you can't beat the good value in this excellent Thai cuisine. Staff and friendly and the owner will often come and talk to you. They have a sister restaurant in Brockville. Nice atmosphere.

The Nakhon Thai Express continues to provide one of the best Thai fare in the region. The food is high quality, with flavours to match and the portions are generous. Service is fast, efficient and pleasant. Great value for dollar.

When this restaurant first opened it was great. It has since changed manager and quality has dropped to point where I won't be going back.

Several months ago we visited the Nakhon Thai Restaurant in Kemptville. A nice layout of different sections. Lots of parking. We found the food good but the place a bit chaotic. A customer came in looking for a take out order that they had made three hours before and still had to wait. The customer sitting next to us was... More

This restaurant is a wonderful alternative to the standard pubs, family restaurants and sports bar fare in the area. The place is small but the layout allows for small groups to have privacy which I recommend reserving to get those spots. The menu is easy to read with pictures and good explanations. The owner, Tan, will take the time to... More

This is a great place to satisfy your Thai cravings! No need to travel to Ottawa. One of my favorite all time Thai restaurants. The owners are awesome as well.

We are so fortunate to have Owner/chef Tan doing the cooking here in Kemptville as they own two restaurants, the other being in Brockville. I haven't visited the one in Brockville, but Tan was cooking the night we went to the Kemptville one. Vegetable spring rolls were fresh, light, and delicious and double the length of what you would expect.... More

We used to come here often for affordable family lunches. Had a few issues in the spring and took the summer away. But we have been back twice this fall. The old staff are back and the food is fabulous again which we are all thrilled about.

Thanks for the review. The owner/head chef (Tan) is happy to be spending a lot of her time in kemptville again. Stop in again sometime as she's planning on some new specials to change things up. More
