Riga – Wok n Kurry

A restaurant offering both Indian and Chinese cuisine sometimes runs the risk of doing neither very well, but Wok n Kurry was well reviewed and so I decided to give it a try.

 

It’s quite a small restaurant and there are only about seven tables inside, although it was relatively quiet during my visit. There are also several tables outside though for the warmer period of the year. It’s all clean, functional and well presented with the sole staff member being warm and welcoming. And she also spoke perfect English, as I can’t even pretend to speak any Latvian.

I wasn’t overly excited by the food’s presentation when it arrived, as the green of the green Thai curry looked a bit too, er, green. Indeed, there was probably too much sauce, but the chicken was tender and it had a pleasant flavour. The carrots added some texture and the quality in terms of the taste met my expectations.

The portion size was generous and it was all served at the appropriate hot temperature. The service time was also impressive, taking around five minutes from being ordered until it was served. I say impressive, as that sort of service speed with a menu of the size that the restaurant has can certainly lead to short cuts.

The cost of the curry, rice and orange juice came to around £8, which seemed competitive given the restaurant’s local in the centre of the country’s capital.
