Still a good choice

Three years ago I reviewed this restaurant and am doing so again to reinforce what we found then. Despite having moved a few doors from their previous location, nothing else has changed except that the new premises are perhaps even more attractive.

We had eaten cous cous and tagine for a week so it was nice to have some Asian food. The chicken and cashew dish was superb, really beautiful flavours and presentation. Very tasty dishes.

Then try this place they offer some interesting twist on your traditional Thai / Indonesian food, good service, this place is located within the Medina 20 seconds from the mosque. So very easy to find.

Wanting a change from couscous and tagine we tried Green Wok as I am a big lover of Asian food. For vegetarians the menu is quite limited, so I tried the spring rolls, fried nems and vegetable soup. We ordered a jasmin tea and a green tea each with no indication of price or size assuming we would have a... More

I have to agree with those that say this is a great break from tagine and couscous. We visited a few times for just such a break (we were in Essaouira for 6 weeks). the food is good, lots of rice and Asian style cooking, although some of the ingredients would not be found in Thailand! My rating is relative... More

Made a lovely change from Tagene...noodles, stir fry and rice dishes, we really enjoyed but approximately £6 for a plate of noodles we thought was a tad overpriced! Total bill was over £23 for the two of us

When you want a break from the Tangine, this place is nice. Sure you don't get authentic thai food but I am still impressed that we could get some sort of Thai food in Essaouira. I asked them for extra extra spicy and I got decent spicy food and I was happy. The guys working there were very nice. The... More

I had what was essentially kung po chicken - chicken and chashews - but i subbed noodles for rice no problem. It was perfection. My husband had beef, also with noodles. The prices were certainly higher than street food,... More

We stumbled across Green Wok when we couldn't decide what to eat and we're really glad we did. The staff were friendly and not at all pushy, the food was freshly cooked and really filling, and there was enough choice on the menu to suit all tastes. Well worth a visit.

It's unfair for me to really review a Thai Restaurant in Essaouira considering i've spent years eating all over Thailand, however they did a pretty decent job of recreating a Thai flavour with the limited fresh Thai ingredients they probably can't source here. Friendly service, Quickly made food, packaged nicely for take-away. Nothing bad to say about the place at... More
