  1. Four of us went for a late lunch today...Only the location has changed...the menu is the same...the staff is the same...the food is as wonderful as it always was...the best nam sod with crispy rice I have ever eaten, the rich and spicy chicken and beef penang, the piquant beef with basil, the BBQ catfish (this may be the best Thai dish in all of SoCal), and outstanding sticky rice and mango...all so good and just the same as before!

    The owner said that business has been slow since the Monday opening but some of the regulars are starting to come back (we are included in that group) They still intend to rebuild the Garden Grove location...all of the plans are done...but permits and other small problems may cause delays in its completion.

    Thai Nakorn is back!!...and as good as ever! They have a great location...the NW corner of Beach and Chapman and it is worth a visit for the best Thai in OC if not all of Southern California!

      I hear they are also reopening the original location as well, once it's repaired.

    2. For those who might be too lazy to click on an outside link:

      Thai Nakorn is now officially open for business. Permit issues have been resolved, and they're able to serve food. They're operating under signs that say "Thai Dishes," but that should change shortly.

      Here's the info: Thai Nakorn, 11951 Beach Blvd., Stanton. 714-799-203.
      Hours: 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 10:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Fridays through Sundays.

        I did click on the link, and you just copied the info, but the phone number is one digit short of the required number. Any knowledge of the last digit, or the missing one, wherever it may be?
        Just a question.

      2. Although we didn't have a chance to stop in, we just drove by and the signage is now all Thai Nakorn.
        It's in the strip mall, northwest corner of Chapman and Beach.

        1. Thanks for the report.

          Is this truly the most 'authentic' Thai restaurant in the LA area?

            Thai Nakorn is among the best, if not the best, Thai in Southern California.

                A Peace Corps officer who spent years in Thailand took me to Thai Nakorn for the first time a decade ago. This was his go-to place when he was "homesick." He too thought this was the best in all of Southern California.

            1. Alright, it's been a LOOOONG time since I craved Thai food and have been waiting a long time for this place to open back up again so I can figure out what everyone's raving about. I'm still not hankering for Thai food yet for some reason, but maybe this place will give me a kick start.
