Long Description:

The wording "Nakhon Thai" can easily be seen in Google Earth (see photos) but a bit of research is required to discover what it is. It is, in fact, a Thai restaurant. As well as being on the London City Airport flight path the Cable Car that runs across the River Thames also gives a good view of the buildings roof top advertising!

The Nakhon Thai website tells us:

Our restaurant is traditionally decorated to provide a classic feel and boast an impressive Polynesian style cocktail bar where we serve an extensive range of cocktails and wine including non-alcoholic cocktails (Mocktail).

For those who may want to eat from the comfort of their own home, we also offer delivery service within selected areas of Royal Docks E16, E6, Isle of Dogs E14 and Limehouse E14.

The word “Nakhon” in Thai language means “City” as our first Thai restaurant was opened in the square mile of City of London just behind Bank of England in September 2003.

Nakhon Thai (Royal Docks) is situated on the eastern bank of the Royal Victoria Docks, a short walk away fron ExCel London International Exhibition Centre and the Emirates Cable Car Station a stone throw away.

This venue offers a stunning dockside dining experience with al-fresco dining overlooking the dock during summer (weather permitting).  The restaurant is set principally across one floor with an intimate mezzanine dining area, the main dining area hosts our cocktail bar and seats approximately 110 people.

“Every morning, we have a delivery of fresh fish from Billingsgate market and fresh vegetables from Spitalfields Market.”

We have ample parking on site and the nearest Royal Victoria DLR is a five minutes’ walk along the docks.  People from O2 venue can use the Emirates cable car which takes approximately seven minutes to cross with spectacular views of the River Thames.  Oyster cards can be used on the cable cars.
