Wangthai Restaurant, Auckland, New Zealand

After the “world’s most expensive beer” © we headed off to graze. We were thinking on Monsoon Poon, but went past Wangthai Restaurant with their “2005 Best Thai” award so thought we’d give it a go.

The mistake had begun.

The meal started off OK, a pretty respectable chicken tom yum and a nice cold Chang beer.

Unfortunately, that’s where it went down hill. Both me and my colleague both like spicy food and we made sure we asked for spicy… however, the main that came out you could feed to your 6 month old bub.

We’d ordered the “Angry Duck” and a green chicken curry, steamed rice, and a couple of Singha beers. The beers were fine, the food lacked excitement. Don’t get me wrong, the food was tasty, just not spicy enough as we’d asked for, and expected.

Will I be going back. Don’t think so, but YMMV.
