The Restaurant

Thai restaurant
Authentic Thai food by The Hamilton Arms - Nava Thai in Stedham - the heart of the West Sussex countryside.

Takeaway service and outside catering facilities

Thai food has risen enormously in popularity in Britain in recent years, but much of the food served in some establishments is Chinese or South East Asian, and not genuine Thai. The emphasis of our menus is on traditional Thai food.

Joint proprietors, Suhail Hussain and Mudita Karnasuta, who came to Britain from Thailand in 1969, ensure that all dishes here at The Hamilton Arms - Nava Thai are based on authentic Thai ingredients and traditional recipes.

We also provide a takeaway service – enjoy our Thai food in the luxury of your own home by ordering a takeaway.
Please view our takeaway menu to find out more information on how to order.

We offer a tailor-made outside catering and mobile bar service. Please call us and we will be pleased to discuss your specific requirements. To view all of the other services we offer, please click here.

There is a small shop within the bar of The Hamilton Arms, selling genuine Thai ingredients, as well as handicrafts.

"Visited Nava Thai last night with my partner and we were very impressed. The food, presentation and service were excellent. I would recommend the Chicken Thai Red Curry- it was so tasty! We will definitely be returning soon."
