Nadon Thai

Found on Crossgate just below St. Margaret’s Church is Nadon Thai, part of an independent chain of restaurants, with the first one being founded in Morpeth in 2010 and Durham’s own restaurant opening in 2014. With six years of experience in Durham and a lifetime from the owners, the restaurant has gone from strength to strength. This is likely due to being a family-owned business with a passion for Thai food. The name of the restaurant even comes from the name of the owners – the Nadons. The menu comes from the authentic experience of Thailand and the nation’s food demonstrated by the fact that all the chef’s themselves are Thai and have many years of experience in cooking the food that you will be able to enjoy.

Inside, the décor of the restaurant continues to highlight the Thai culture with the beautiful and authentic objects from everyday life within the restaurant which have been hand decorated by the staff, who bring their own impression of Thai life to the restaurant. What is more authentic that someone presenting to you something that the staff believe epitomises their culture? The restaurant itself is a wonderful fusion bringing together traditional and modern food.

The menu is carefully crafted to give the best Thai flavours to customers from traditional Thai fishcakes and Satay Chicken to less well-known dishes, such as Shumai. Larger meals such as Weeping Tiger and Drunken noodles are sure to fill you up on your visit and provide a healthy and enjoyable meal. They have not just stopped at traditional but also include fusion meals such as lamb shank massaman curry and a tapas lunchtime offer, there is a great deal of thought going into the meals on offer. It is not just the food that you will enjoy but also the world- famous Thai hospitality, which will add to your visit and give you the best experience on your trip to Nadon Thai. For the full Thai experience, Nadon Thai will surpass your expectations.
