Next time I'm just going to order all the starters as my meal, the mains were good, but every time I think about it all I want to do is pig out on the fantastic starters. The complimentary vanilla rum was should be the national drink of Mauritius.

The Wang Thai has plenty of parking at the back of the building and it's situated on the first floor with a terrace facing the ocean, so there is little street noise, and it's cool and pleasant to dine in. Elegantly furnished in traditional Thai style, and serving well priced authentic Thai food, beautifully presented and delicious. The service is... More

We ordered starters and mains to share and everything was delicious. I have never had fish curry with pineapple and was pleasantly surprised. The fish was coated and not fishy tasting at all, give it a try. The waiters are quick and friendly and the manager comes around often. The restaurant is upstairs so away from the busy street. There... More

We were treated like family. Lots of space around tables and an impressive menu. It was a pleasure to see how children also were welcomed.

We enjoyed our meal at wang Thai. We ordered various starters which were very tasty. Could not fault them. We ordered the Tom jum seafood soup which however was tasteless and the calamari like rubber. Disappointed. When we arrived we were told that food would take a while to arrive, however we did not wait that long and our waiter... More

The food was OK as was the price. However it really lacked that particular Thai spiciness and that was a huge disappointment. Nonetheless the view from the terrace and the service were very nice.

Had dinner at Wang Thai last weekend, great atmosphere, busy dining room but still high standards of service with very good attention, well done! Food was very good, great hot crab soup, delicious pad thai. And the owner's presence throughout the evening supervising the operations is definitely a plus: not every owner does that! Congrats! I will definitely come back.

I went to this restaurant back in October expecting a real Thai dinner - well, that's not what I got for sure. The record looks Thai, the name implicates the same but let me tell you the food is not Thai. Pretty much all dished we ordered were Chinese and also prepared the Chinese way .... guess I should have... More

I was at Wang Thai last night with three friends. Though we didn't have any booking, we were warmly welcome and accomodated though the restaurant had all tables booked. As walk in guests we didnt feel undesired. We requested a table on the balcony whilst we were seated inside. No sooner had we ordered our food and drinks than a... More
