The Wanderer Thai Bar

The Wanderer is a new Thai restaurant in the CBD. We received an invitation from Paul, the restaurant owner, to come by and try their menu and share our thoughts with you.

It is seriously gorgeous inside.

Lots of orchids, a tree with fairy lights for leaves, vintage suitcases and more.

The decor is not traditionally thai, and slightly reminds me of a hotel lobby bar, but it is still stunning.

Check out those chainmail curtains and plush red booth seating.

The staff were really nice, and the owner, Paul, was friendly and open to questions.

I am allergic to nuts and let the restaurant know before we arrived, and let the waitress know when we were ordering. We carefully selected dishes that had no nuts, on the advice of the waitress. However… our first dish arrived with nuts in it. šŸ˜…

That being said, my dining companion thoroughly enjoyed the “mixed fruits Thai-style salad ($16.90)”. It was the perfect mix of sweet, salty and sour. There were so many different types of textures from the fresh fruits, and it was a great zingy appetizer.

The “Thai-style fried rice” ($17.90) was full of flavour, and a big portion with eggs, chicken and veggies. It was absolutely delicious, but we think the price point is a bit high for fried rice.

This “green curry chicken” ($18.90) did not arrive with rice, which we had to request. However, it was delicious, with apple eggplants and chicken. It was a very saucy curry, and we felt it could have had a bit more chicken/veggies in it.

The prices at The Wanderer are definitely higher than other places, but the ambience and flavours were of a high quality.
Sweet, spicy, zingy, sour, tangy : it was all in balance. Other than the mistake with the nuts in the dish (which could have killed someone), service was friendly.

We really enjoyed our visit to The Wanderer. Our rating: 3.5/5
