-By Marryam H Reshii
Blame it on the MCD! But the romance has been completely demolished from one of my favourite Thai restaurants in town - Thai Wok. As it happens, Thai Wok has relocated, thanks to the municipal sealing, to Punjabi Bagh Extension. Yes, Punjabi Bagh Extension! Well, it's beyond beyond - beyond Dhaula Kuan, beyond Naraina, beyond Mayapuri, beyond Rajouri Gardens � basically, bahut bahut beyond! The Tom Yam Koong and the Tom Kha Kai are not half as tangy and fiery as they should be; the Chicken Tom Kha is distinctly curdled and just a wee bit rancid. If the soups department is a let-down, the starter in the form of the Yam Phak Krob more than compensates. First rate stuff, this. In contrast, the Satay Kai and the over-fried spring roll-type Porpia Chae is just passable. For the main course, you could try the Kaeng Pet Phak Ruam. In contrast, the Phad Phrik Chao Suan Phak is a teenie weenie wonder that refuses to satisfy. The Thai Wok Chicken is avoidable; the Pla Ka Pong Dang Phirik Thai Dam is worth a shot. The Phad Thai Phak, likewise, is competent - certainly I've had better. End the meal with the Chocolate Mousse and the Double Chocolate Cheese Cake. Would I recommend the new avatar Thai Wok to you? Would I seriously expect you to make the effort to find it in the maze of a Punjabi Bagh residential colony? Surprisingly, yes. If Thai is your kind of cuisine, it will perhaps measure up. Is it a Thunder Thai? Not quite, but it could Thai-you-down for some time!
