“When you've had your fill of tagine...”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

Most people on short visits to Morocco will be happy with the tagines, couscous and other street food. But if you're here for a longer visit and start craving something different, this place gives you LEGIT Thai curries. Best Thai food I've ever had? No. Best Thai food I've had in Morocco (I've tried two others)? Yes.

“A good choice”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Lovely little place if you had enough of moroccan food and want to change. Really good rolls, noodles and wok dishes!

“Great Thai food, right inside the Medina”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

Yes, it's small! The Green Wok has 6 tables so better be early in the evening because otherwise it's full. And no reservations possible...

The spring rolls are awesome, both fresh and fried (and veggie). The chicken and beef currys are lovely, tasteful and very much welcome after nearly 20 days in Marocco! The owner is fantastic, friendly and professional.

Prices are reasonable, 80dh for a chicken curry and rice is not cheap but very much worth the quality!

“Very fresh, tasty food”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

This small restaurant is nothing fancy to look at but it's clean, well designed and offers a refreshing alternative to much of the food on offer in other restaurants. It does what restaurants should do - offer a reasonable number of choices which it does well. Rather than offer a huge menu which is disappointing. The food is freshly prepared and cooked in front of you -and they will adjust dishes if you tell them you want them spicier or milder. The vegetarian Thai soup was excellent and packed with glass noodles and finely cut vegetables and mushrooms. It was lovely and peppery too. The Thai Green curry was well spiced and made hotter at our request. It came with ample rice . A good meal at a reasonable price of just over £10 with a drink. Just around the corner is a stall selling fantastic Italian cream which makes a refreshing sweet course.

Good food, good price, relaxed environment. I have enjoyed it hree years running and hope to return. No public restroom but they will direct you to another steps away. Friendly cats.
