“Surprisingly - worth the visit!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2010

We've avoided this restaurant since it reopened a few years ago in its latest guise as a thai/chinese, because from the main road it looks rough, and in the past when it was a pub it had a dubious reputation. However looking to go somewhere different to eat the other week, I had a trawl on the net for ideas and thought I'd see if I could find any reviews of the Silver Wok. I could only find one, on another site, but fancied the look of the menu on its website, so we decided to drive down and take a better look.
We found the place to be full and buzzing, and actually far more attractive from the side road than from the main road. It still has a rather dull (and sour smelling) bar with pool table on the main road side which is what gives the poor impression, but the side reception to the restaurant is attractive, warm and welcoming with modern oriental decor - totally different. We had to wait 10mins for a table to become free but enjoyed drinks on the reception sofa (shunning the almost empty bar) whilst we waited and perused the menu. Once seated, the thai waitresses were helpful and attentive and after a large bowl of spicy prawn crackers we shared starters of chicken satay and salt and pepper prawns, followed by an excellent whole thai fish dish each (chilli fish and tamarind fish) with a lovely special fried rice (I said I liked cashews and the waitress offered to add extra for free!). Along with 2 glasses of wine and 2 beers, the bill came to £60 which we thought was reasonable considering the fish.
Just wish we had tried this restaurant earlier. We felt that they should redecorate and put ambient lighting in the bar area in the same style as the reception to make a cosy cocktail/wine bar alongside the restaurant - it's obviously not a popular hang out as it is, given no one was in the bar even on a Saturday eve at 8pm, and it would make it far more attractive to passing trade!
