“Disappointing”
Review of Emerald Thai

Emerald Thai
Ranked #58 of 69 Restaurants in Wangaratta
Restaurant details
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Not what it once was. Have decided to no longer patronise after two disappointing experiences.
The prices and the quality of food and service no longer match at all. Felt ripped off. We so used to enjoy going there. Little use of fresh vegetables and certainly not in a genuine Thai presentation. Heavy on (cheap) onion. Coriander? Peking Pork "Cook's Special" was an ordinary battered pork and mainly onion. Thai prawn omelette was bland with nothing to mark it as Thai. Service was basically bring food to the table. Disappointing.

A good restaurant to eat at in Wangaratta. The service was friendly and the meal was good. The serve sizes were large-ish, but not excessive. The restaurant isn't the most atmospheric, but that isn't the target market.

We order takeaway from Emerald Thai regularly.
Their Thai Fried Rice is delicious and full of flavour. We also tend to get the Oyster Chicken. The chicken pieces are always tender and lean, you never get horrible chewy bits.
We've never had a bad visit. A favourite.

I read the reviews and was stupid to think it was going to be ok...what a big dissapointment. We usually love pad thai and it was limp and so eggy....horrid. The fillet pork special dish was so bland and boring and mainly red peppers. The young lady was loud and brash and I felt that the whole place was tired and the cooks looked elderly and over it! Very expensive too....felt ripped off! Will not be back.

Nice, country town Asian restaurant. That's about it

decor is very tired, service by local teenagers, food was pretty pedestrian albeit with fresh ingredients

Cheap and cheerful. About as enthusiastic as I can get about the place
