OUR RESTAURANT The wanderer Thai bar
Thai cuisine for everyone
The Wanderer is a brainchild of a Thai chef Sarit (whose English nickname is James). James has been passionate about food from early childhood. As a small kid, he helped his parents and grandparents running a family restaurant on the banks of the mighty Chaopraya River in Bangkok.
As he grew, his involvement in the restaurant grew as well, and ultimately he became its manager. He was also helping in the kitchen and intimately learned the complex art of matching Thai flavours.
n Australia, he worked in a number of Thai restaurants, including the renowned Long Chim in Perth, and then became part of the startup crew for Long Chim at the Crown Casino in Melbourne.
Subsequently, an opportunity arose to open his own restaurant in Melbourne CBD, which he decided to call The Wanderer. The name encapsulates the philosophy of offering modern Thai cuisine with distinctive Asian flavours, but also being inclusive of other cuisines he became familiar with, such as Cambodian and Laotian.
