Food

Be transported to Thailand as you indulge in fresh, fragrant and steaming hot dishes which promise to satisfy any craving. Explore the unique Wok Box beach salad: a combination of chicken, prawn and calamari, coated with house-made chilli jam and served on a layer of crispy spinach. If you are all about the crunch, try the vegetable tempura salad.

The steaming hot soups are perfect for a cold day or a casual lunch; choose from the traditional tom yum or opt for a noodle based, roasted garlic and Asian veg combination.

The generously portioned mains are a must - choose from crispy chilli chicken infused with sun dried chillies and palm sugar or the deep fried salt and pepper calamari rings. For the more adventurous palate, try the roasted WB duck layered with a thin pancake and smothered in a honey, ginger and sesame sauce. It is beautifully cooked, with a crispy outer shell and tender on the inside; however, the sauce can be overpowering. The Wok fries are a sure way to get your taste buds going- choose from a variety of combinations (like the roasted garlic and black bean or sweet basil and chilli) or request your own. Add beef, chicken, pork or prawn to complete your dish. All mains are served with steamed jasmine rice or tossed with egg noodles. The fried rice is both flavoursome and wholesome. Add it to your main or enjoy on its own - both equally good.

Finish off your Thai adventure with the delicious homemade ice-cream or chocolate Nutella spring rolls served with coconut custard.

Drinks

They have an extensive wine list, reasonably priced per glass, but you can also enjoy soft drinks.

Service

Waiters are friendly and helpful; however, they could have been more aware of seating guests on arrival. The food is speedily served - from the wok onto your plate in under 15 minutes.

Ambience

The Wok Box sports a charming rustic elegance, with wooden and beautiful jar lights suspended from the ceiling; there is definitely a lovely attention to detail. Traditional Thai bamboo steamers and hand woven serving baskets adorn the walls of the restaurant. The crockery have a homely touch with traditional prints. The tables and chairs have a more modern touch. The atmosphere is inviting and relaxing, perfect for a casual date night or a family dinner.

And…

The menu accommodates all preferences - each dish has the option of either veg, chicken, beef or pork. Food specials are also available. Don’t forget to try the homemade ice-cream!
