Thai food for everyone

The Wanderer is an innovative and contemporary Thai restaurant and bar in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD. Our restaurant’s vision is the brainchild of a well-known and respected Thai chef,  James (Sarit), who practiced his skills in some of the most prestigious kitchens in Australia, from Long Chim in Perth and Red Spice Road in Melbourne, to being an integral part of the original

Long Chim’s start-up team in Melbourne’s Crown Casino.


Once this project was complete, Chef James (Sarit) found his calling as a restaurant space became available on Lonsdale Street.

In June 2019, The Wanderer was born with lines, at times, extending out the door.

Chef  James (Sarit’s) story is like an adventure film. Taking inspiration from three generations of his family’s cooking, he learned

the trade at a young age, when he would help his parents and grandparents prepare food on the banks of the mighty Chao Phraya River in Bangkok. And the might of the river inspired his dream…

He has now developed his own menu in Melbourne; which is modern in presentation, innovative in design but truly Thai-centric, encapsulating traditional flavours. Whilst paying homage to three generations of his Thai family, it also embraces other Asian cuisines, including Vietnamese and Laotian.

We are The Wanderer. Join us now on this epic journey of tastes.
