Thai top restaurant choice for lawyers

This article is over 3 years old. More recent information on this subject may exist.

Thai restaurants were the favourite for lawyers who responded to a survey on recreation in the New Zealand Law Society's weekly LawPoints e-newsletter.

When asked to name their three favourite types of restaurants, over 54% of respondents selected Thai restaurants. The next most popular choice was Kiwi Cafe, followed by Japanese, Indian and Italian.

While both men and women put Thai at the top, there were some differences in the next preferences. The next choice for women was Japanese and then Kiwi Cafe, while men liked Italian and Indian.

The unscientific survey was completed by 196 lawyers, who also selected their preferred sports, movies, concerts, holiday destinations. The results (removing responses such as "Can't remember"):
