The Royal Victoria Dock outpost of Nakhon Thai (there’s another on the Isle of Dogs) is one of those ‘only in E16’ eating experiences. The carved wooden statues, birdcages & terrace planted with palms are typically Thai, while the planes from London City, the high rises all around & the gaggle of Canada geese in the water outside are pure Docklands. Bizarre juxtapositions aside, it’s a very pleasant place to enjoy decent Thai food. Chef’s specials steer diners towards seafood dishes such as lobster curry or sea bass in lime & chilli broth; elsewhere, satays, stir-fries, soups & noodles appeal to both eat-ins & take-outs. Nakhon doubles as a ‘caff’ by day, so don’t be surprised to see staff dispensing paninis & cans along with plates of pad thai.
