“trust me i'm asian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

considering we're in morocco, the red curry seafood i had was almost like what i'd get in singapore/thailand. well spiced and unlike the poor standard asian food we got in marrakech.
dishes were made from scratch and the rice was typical of the asian type ones.
a MUST if you're tired of the tajine routine

“Simple, no fuss eatery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

This is a restaurant that has its service and menu sorted. It's a small space (12 seats), but you can be in and out within an hour easily, so there's a lot of turn over. The menu has a decent selection of Thai soups, rice and noodle dishes and its refreshing to taste lemongrass and galangal after so much saffron and cinnamon. Good favors and efficient service.

“A change from tagines...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Popped in here for a late night thai green curry when I simply could not face another tagine. The curry was good, and packed full of healthy vegetables but I think the price (80 dh) was maybe a bit much for what you got.
Overall I would recommend to go here if you want something a bit different from the usual Moroccan fare

“Pretty good Thai but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

1) we waited for a while.
2) Portion size was fairly small for the red and green curry. It was good but...
3) It was fairly expensive. Western prices. Small bowl of curry was 80 Dh and I was nowhere near full.

However, if you need a curry fix and are sick of tajine and couscous, go here.

Tip: The spring rolls WERE cheap, delicious and filling. If you need a snack, this is the bomb!

“I loved it long time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

If you've had one too many tagines during your stay, then definitely give the Green Wok a go. All the ingredients are fresh, and the meals are cooked to order.

One criticism is that the portions are a little on the small side - so consider having a starter - would be ideal for lunch though.
