Urban Thai Kitchen

NaKorn

NaKorn means ‘Metropolitan’
in Thai.

NaKorn started with our belief that authentic Thai food should be found not only in Thailand—but here, as well.

Our menu offers a perfect blend of bold flavors with traditional, old-world recipes in a modern presentation. Using only the finest ingredients, we created unique dishes layered with flavors. Our menu is best enjoyed when served family-style, though our portion sizes vary according to the dish. Most of our dishes are best when accompanied by rice.
