Bangkok Wok
Cuisines: Thai
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 17, 2013

One of Bangkok Wok's advantages is that, although it is situated in Florida Road (Durban's trendiest suburb—if that isn't an oxymoron), you can normally find parking in the vicinity. It's located in a quaint Edwardian-style house, with a lot of tables out front on the veranda and courtyard for alfresco eating.

I don't know how authentically Thai the food is—but they certainly used to have Thai chefs. We eat or buy takeaways there quite often, because the food is good and reasonably priced. The service is reasonably efficient, and the staff are friendly. We usually order a mixed platter has a starter, and the wontons are outstanding. For mains, the noodle bowls are great value for money, as are the green and red curries (neither of which is bitingly hot like Durban Indian curry).

Desserts probably wouldn't make it on any must-have list, but then you are on Florida Road, so you could always walk up to Wakkaberry or somewhere similar and indulge yourself there.

bangkok wok is situated on the uber cool florida rood in durban..this is frankly the only area in durban city, i felt comfortable about walking around and exploring. High end cafes, boutique hotels, lifestyle shops etc certainly make this upscale neighborhood worth exploring. Bangkok wok is based in a pretty little victorian house with wrap around verandha and a garden. we chose to sit outside in the verandha. The service is a little slow (but i was warned that durban is a go slow zone). We ordered for pad thai with prawns and veg massaman curry. Food arrived promptly and portion sizes are generous! (about double the size of simply asia portion)! the food is great! it was the best massaman curry i have eaten outside thailand! prizes are extremely reasonable. our total bill came to 100 rand for both dishes, tip and drinks excluded! if we were to eat at a similar place in cape town , it would be a minimum of 150. So if you are looking for a good thai curry, visit these guys at florida road but go there with an empty stomach as both of us had to leave half of our portions on the plate!
