Having decided to treat ourselves with supper at a restaurant in Somerset West we decided to try the new Wangthai now positioned at the Sanctuary Mall. The new restaurant is better situated than the previous position in old Somerset west. The Wangthai brand has always been synonymous with good authentic Thai food - we were not disappointed. Authentic Thai cuisine prepared by authentic Thai chefs who can be seen through the glass panel working their magic in the kitchen. The combo platter starter is a great way to start supper and I would recommend the seafood hot pot as a main - the lemon grass, chili , tom yum flavors was perfect. The Hana jelly desert was interesting and well crafted. We have decided to make a return visit to this Wangthai restaurant very soon

An absolute change from the old place, stunning at sunset. Friendly and helpful waiters and excellent value for money. Food is to die for and it was buzzing with locals and swallows. Food was one of the better Thai meals I have had. Owners are friendly and helpful and authentic Thai's. A must go back again.

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 at the end of the restaurant and there was no heating there so it was really chilly.
