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

This was a surprise find in amongst the streets of Essouira. We decided to eat there as the food in our hotel had not been very exciting. The food was lovely and very reasonable, we had the fixed price menu which was a main meal of chicken noodles or beef in oyster sauce with a drink. We liked it so... More

Nice change of pace after heavy moroccan food. Nice spicy soups and good green tea. Went here with some friends for lunch while wandering the medina.

After eating Moroccan food for a week ( and, it is fabulous) , it was a nice surprise to find this Thai restaurant in the middle of the Medina in Essaouira. I had the green curry chicken and the ingredients were very fresh. The restaurant is small and the staff is friendly. You can watch the kitchen prepare your food... More

We've just returned to out hotel after a trip the the medina. After 3days in essoiaira we are already fed up with tagines and wanted something different. As lovers of Thai food we were unsure how authentic Thai food cooked by Moroccans would be. We were pleasantly surprised at just how flavoursome and tasty the food was. We ordered a... More

We had a take away & it was delicious. After a few days I got a bit fed up of tagines so made a nice change. The noodles are very, very tasty, really enjoyed it. The restaurant itself is tiny and seemed very popular. Spring rolls were lovely.

A lovely little eatery offering a limited but very fresh,tasty and excellently prepared SE asian fusion food. Such a pleasant change from the ubiquitous and somewhat tedious Moroccan fare.

Essaouira is a city of blue. Eating Moroccan food at a restaurant, so if you don't have the privilege of eating in the presence of a Moroccan home stick to the street food--kefta sandwiches, mnsemen, BUT if you are wanting something tasty at a sit down restaurant, Green Wok is the place! It is a perfect place to change things... More

Most people on short visits to Morocco will be happy with the tagines, couscous and other street food. But if you're here for a longer visit and start craving something different, this place gives you LEGIT Thai curries. Best Thai food I've ever had? No. Best Thai food I've had in Morocco (I've tried two others)? Yes.
