About Our Food
Wili's Thai Junction is a new Thai restaurant located in Jamieson, one of the most picturesque towns in country Victoria. Surrounded by mountains and blessed with not one, but two pristine river systems, which meet just a minute's walk from our new restaurant.
Jamieson's fresh air, nearby snowcapped peaks, four truly defined and very different seasons, as well a rich history, strongly resonate with our previous life in Thailand. The culturally authentic Thai cuisine, available from within the historic walls of this building, will reflect the freshness, colour and vibrancy that Jamieson has to offer.
And you will also be able to enjoy feasting with friends outside in our soon to be built garden dining areas.
Chef, Wili, cooks traditional Thai food. It's spicy, it’s flavorsome and it's as authentic as you will get this side of Bangkok. Fresh ingredients, homemade curries and sauces, some imported direct from Thailand and above all…. attention to providing a taste sensation you will never forget.
Please be warned, it is spicy, and unless you advise otherwise, you will get food as cooked in Wili’s home country, Thailand. Please advise the level of spice you can handle. If in doubt, start off mild and ramp it up next time if you can handle it. Also, please advise of any allergies and/or dislikes/intolerances. We can accommodate your needs very easily IF we are notified first.
All of our ingredients are, as much as humanely possible, being sourced as organic, free range and local. It's our utmost desire to expand our list of ingredients sourced wholly from local areas as close to Jamieson producers as possible, and working outwards as required…but only from Australian small farmers and producers where possible.
Get ready for the taste sensation.
The Story Of Our Historic Building
The Colonial Bank
The Colonial Bank, in Bank Street Jamieson, was first opened in 1868 under the management of Edwin Fitzroy. Edwin remained as manager until 1884, having his farewell at the nearby Junction Hotel where he was presented with a purse of 50 guineas.
The Jamieson branch of the Colonial Bank continued, under various managers, until 1918. At this time it was merged with the National Bank, and so became the Jamieson branch of the National Bank under the management of Kenneth McLennan.
Finally, in 1925, the National Bank closed its Jamieson Branch, then under the management of Mr. Sleeman.
In January 1961, the nearby Junction Hotel, built in 1861, sadly burned down. This was just months before the town’s centenary celebration, much of which was to be held in at the Junction Hotel. After much deliberation, then owner, Mrs Dorothy Denholm, decided to carry on a temporary bar in the unused Colonial Bank building.
Since then the old bank building has been used for various restaurants. Now, under the ownership of descendants of the Wheeler family, one of the many pioneering families of the Jamieson township and surrounds, the Colonial Bank Building is host to Wili's Thai Junction.
Wili, Daryl, Christian & Caela warmly welcome you to enjoy their hospitality.
