1000 Wat, Melbourne CBD by Bureaucrat

1000 Wat is a Thai eatery inside Emporium.  Located a bit away from the main food court area on level 3 (e.g., Charlie & Co, Thr1ve, Rice Workshop and Chinta Ria Soul), 1000 Wat offers a slightly more restaurant vibe to its offerings.  Having said that, you still need to place your order at the counter, but at least they bring the food to your table.

Ms B and both went for the chicken pad Thai.  It was alright - nothing exceptional about it.  It was a reasonable-ish serving size, the sauce was a nicely balanced savoury-sour.  However, I would have liked a bit more egg and chicken pieces tossed through it, and it was lacking a good wallop of wok hei  - I was missing the aromatic eggy-charred flavour that comes with a properly stir fried noodle dish.  Most telling, was that what I liked the most about the dish was the (faux) golden cutlery it was served with.

While I only had one dish, I reckon 1000 Wat is an okay place for some work-day Thai food but it's nowhere near the authentic and exciting offerings at, say, BangPop or Pok Pok.
