Thai food is undoubtedly one of the most popular cuisines on the planet with its variety and flavors, coming from a country in central South-East Asia, Thailand is abundant in spices, fresh produce, amazing seafood and they have managed to take simple pork or chicken dishes to new heights. With Indian and Chinese influences, Thai food is very much its own cuisine with a huge variation across the country.
Here at Wok Express, our chef Pim is from Thailand and moved to New Zealand with her husband many years ago and while Wok Express has a multi Asian menu – at its heart is Pim’s Thai heritage. As such, we feel some of our dishes are the best Thai takeaways in Auckland.
Wok Express has an emphasis on healthy eating and the variety that Thai food can provide allows us to include both vegan and keto options in our range of Thai takeaways in Auckland and our other locations. We have lovely Thai curries like the famous green and red, loaded with vegetables and creamy coconut.
Our Mussaman curry comes with slow-cooked beef or chicken, while our Panang curry, which is a nice spicy little number has chicken, beef, prawn, or tofu options to suit your taste buds or dietary requirements.
One of the best things about Thai food is the balance across a dish that all good Thai chefs will achieve. A perfect combination of sweet, salty, umami, spicy and sour is what makes Thai food so absolutely delicious. While Auckland and New Zealand are not Asia, we keep the spiciness down a notch or two across our range of dishes, but if you do like it hot, be sure to let us know!
One of the most popular Thai dishes and one of our most popular and best takeaways, in Auckland and all our locations, is Pad Thai. It’s one of the few dishes that are very similar wherever you go in Thailand and ubiquitous around the world as a Thai food specialty. Pad Thai is a noodle dish, usually rice noodles, with chilies, bean sprouts, peanuts, coriander along with a sauce mix of lime, fish sauce, brown sugar, and some other ingredients along with your choice of chicken, prawns, or even tofu.
Even if you don’t feel like a curry or a noodle dish, Thai food has more options and our very popular Chicken with cashew nut stir-fry is Thai at its simplest and tastiest. Not an overly spicy dish, but one super popular amongst tourists in Thailand and is one the best takeaways we have in Auckland and our other locations, so you don’t have to travel to Thailand to eat it!
