I had dinner last night at the Wok N Rok on Soi Bukhao. It was nice to see several other P-L members there as well.

I went with the Peking spare ribs (145 baht) and the duck in orange sauce (165 baht) with boiled rice (30 baht). It tasted great.

The ribs were indeed Peking style, cooked tender and the sauce had the right flavor.

The generous portion of duck breast was also tender and moist.

The orange sauce wasn't too sweet or dominating and had an appropriate acidity that complemented the richness of the duck.

The sauces are one of the things that impress me most about th Wok N Rok. They are far better than what comes with a lot of the Chinese take-away dishes you get in the West. The Wok N Rok has new service staff (very friendly and attentive) and Ouy's dishes hold the same high standard they've always done.

I lived and worked in Taiwan and China for parts of the 1980s and 1990s, including a three-year stint in Beijing. After experiencing real Chinese food, I wasn't very keen on the U.S. or U.K. style of Chinese food. But the high-quality ingredients, subtle flavors and care in preparation makes the Wok N Rok's offerings easy for me to accept. The sweet-and-sour sauce is close to what you'd find in many Hong Kong eateries.

Well done, Ouy!

what would be wrong in eating off bar stools at a bar or table , its common place in any bar that sells food .

If am going to eat at a restaurant, which am assuming W & R is, then surely you have dining tables and chairs to sit at as per norm?

If am going to a bar then yes bar stools and high tables are the norm and ok for drinks and bar snacks but def not a proper meal.

Common sense.

Those dishes look great, looking forward to eating there soon.

From the directions on this thread I'm still not sure exactly where it is.

Can someone give me an idea using the Butchers Arms as a reference?

Re Chinese in Australia. I have had some terrific meals here.

I was really stoked when my local bowling club said there were opening a Chinese.

There were three lots of cooks over the last ten years and all were shite.

The last one was so bad you could hardly tell one dish from another.

They are gone now, thank ***.

Just walk past the Butchers arms about 80 metres up on the same side heading north (away from lk metro)
