Wang Matcha Restaurant – Nakhon Ratchasima- Thailand
Wang Matcha* Restaurant is in Korat city about four km from the city centre, Korat. I don’t usually write about wining and dining but this is one place you will want to write home about and share with your friends. I haven’t come across a restaurant like this in Thailand.
*wang – palace, matcha – fish
Matchachat – Pisces, the 12th sign of the zodiac
Matchanu – the son of Hanuman the monkey god and a female mermaid, Suvannamatcha in Ramakien, the Thai version of the Ramayana epic
The layout of the restaurant
Wang Matcha Restaurant consists of a huge lake about 150 m x 100 m with pavilions all round the lake that serve as dining rooms. The main restaurant building, where the kitchen is located, has both indoor and outdoor dining facilities.
The small pavilions around the lake are suitable for small groups of friends who would like some privacy and to be away from the crowd.
The whole place has a natural ambience with lots of trees, plants and garden lighting. There’s a windmill in the middle of the lake that’s lit up at night. Plus a pavilion of live music!
The distance of the pavilion at the southern corner of the lake to the kitchen in the main building is about 150 m. How then are diners going to get their food in time?
Simple, food is delivered by speed boats racing across the lake.
