My husband and I visited Wang Thai for dinner. The food was absolutely delicious. Just like being in Thailand. Good service. Will definitely eat there again.

Delicious food. The prices are high, the wine is expensive - take your own and pay corkage. We quickly bought a bottle at the Spar next door! Atmosphere can be a bit snotty. Very open plan, not much privacy. Not a great position - next to a big parking lot for Spar supermarket !

I booked a table for 6 telephonically several days ahead and when we arrived, there was nothing in their reservation book. The restaurant wasn't busy so they were able to seat us easily enough but not the point! We had no complaints about the food or service but the restaurant lacks ambiance and the decor is appalling. We were seated... More

We ordered Thai chicken curry and Thai prawn curry. The rice was served in a chipped vegetable dish and we were given a flat plate for our curry which was more like a soup and mine had very little chicken in it. The prawns were good but again more like a prawn soup than a curry.

10/10 for Wang Thai! I will most certainly be back and I highly recommended it. Great service, fabulous food (I had the Duck in red wine sauce), yummy cocktails and excellent value for money.

This place offers stunning sunset views of Table Bay and deliciously cooked food. It can get busy and the serving time increases, but if you pick a lovely dusk, it's worth it!

First time to a Thai restaurant in South Africa. Wanted to try the Red Curry as I had it in Thailand last year and wanted to see if it compared. It was nice but did not understand why we had to pay extra for a little bit of rice. It did not come with the meal as it does with... More

After an extremely disappointing time last year when Wang Thai really went downhill, we have in 2016 had some very delicious meals here under the new owners. Food is always extremely tasty and well priced and the atmosphere in the restaurant is good
