Arrived at the restaurant and was greeted by a member of staff with a can’t be bothered attitude who then rudely asked whether we had a booking, she later passed us on to another member of staff who told us our table wasn’t ready and...that there would be a ten minute wait. She took us to a sofa and apologised for the inconvenience and offererd us drinks while we waited for our table. We were later sat on a table surrounded by large tables. It was unbearable the heat and the noise. When she later checked up on us I told her if we could move as it was too hot and noisey and she said when the next available table came up she would move us. In the meantime she suggested that she would bring us a fan. She later moved us to a table near the door and asked if it was okay. She was great! The customer service we received from her was brilliant. Despite a fully booked resturant she made sure we were happy throughout our entire stay. Will definitely visit again.More

Eat here on a Thursday evening. I phoned to enquire if booking was required and was told it was not. By half seven they were turning people away as full! So booking advised. The COVID admin procedure were also chaotic. Having checked in on the...NHS app I was told I still had to write my name and contact details in a book in the lobby. This book was left open with everyone’s contact details accessible to anyone who cared to look. I don’t think the management here have heard of GDPR laws! As for the food, well it was good. Generous portions, well presented and tasty. So a good meal, but muddled management.More

Decided to try a light tapas lunch at this restaurant and we were not disappointed. It's a lovely relaxed setting with great service and delightful tapas plates. Would highly recommend. We will definitely be returning for another go!! Next time with friends.

Lovely tasty dinner in a nice environment, would definitely love to go there again. Couple of niggles as the drinks took a while to arrive but we were kindly offered one on the house to compensate and they had sold out of the first couple...of beers we asked for and also had no thai prawn crackers but we were happy with the substitutes provided.More

Me and a few friends visited Nandon Thai a few days ago for dinner and it was delicious. We all loved our food - fantastically flavoursome, great portion sizes and friendly members of staff all added to the ambiance of the restaurant. I'm annoyed that...it's taken me until my 4th year in Durham to discover this hidden gem! I can't wait to come back again soon - maybe to try the Tapas lunch options! Thank you - especially to the lovely waitress serving our table - she told us she was new and she was excellent! XMore

There are a couple of steps to get into the restaurant first, there is a disabled toilet inside.
