We decided a Thai meal was just what we felt like, so, off to Wang Thai in Constantia and what a disappointment.Parking was hard to find, not because this restaurant was full but all the other surrounding ones were packed.There were a few occupied tables and so the atmosphere was non - existent.We were seated immediately and presented with an interesting menu.The wine arrived ,but alas warm, so ice was required(?!) We placed our orders, but waited ages for the dishes to arrive.The corn cakes were tasty but the deep fried prawns and vegetables were tasteless,with thick, soggy batter.The Teriyaki fish, which was angel fish, was dry and unappetizing,the jasmine rice over cooked and the tofu noodles boring.The honey pork saved the meal.BUT the portions of meat and fish are very small and over priced.The glass rice spring rolls still appear on the menu ,but, for 3 years now, still not available.

We were a bit disappointed with this restaurant after reading the good reviews on Trip Advisor. We found the menu rather limited and although our meal was nice, it certainly wasn't worth the money we paid for it. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We went twice to this restaurant and found the food pretty good. Try the Honey Chicken main course, for us it was the best. There is a very good choice of starters and main courses.. They also do Sushi

I LOVED the green curry, I ordered it mild, (might still be a bit strong for some) but it was the best I have ever had.
My husband had Butternut Thai Curry, he can handle the hot stuff!! But that was Tiawanese hot. We had to order some extra rice but he loved it and will definitely try it again (but maybe the Western hot... hahaha)

My 6yr old is a sushi fiend and believe it or not pretty fussy about good sushi (she wont eat sushi at ocean basket with out some complaint) she really enjoyed her sushi, prices for platters were average priced.

The manager was very friendly. It was a beautiful sunny day and most people sat outside, we had just come from a boat trip in Hout Bay so we had enough of the sunshine for the moment. The inside has no windows and seems to be a basement. It was decorated in a very Indonesian style, the restaurant was busy outside and the inside was practically empty. I can imagine on a wet day when the inside is busy it could feel a bit stifling. Over all lovely place, will go again, food was brilliant and I walked away feeling spoilt and of course had left overs :)
