A pleasant place overlooking the square, happy attentative staff and food that is always satifying. This is one of those go to places you want to have in your "favourites" so you can do a booking knowing you will be glad you did. We think their noddle dishes are special but the curries are also nice.

A superb meal in a very stylish, up market setting. Very friendly and professional service. I found the food outstanding. Mid week dinner and the place was fairly full. Nice atmosphere and decor. Really enjoyed the experience. They do accept the Entertainer App deals.

Dropped in on a Sunday lunchtime. Given a nice table overlooking Mandela square from a elevated position. Both wife and I enjoyed our food. I had Kingclip with rice and some salad. Fortunately for me the green chilli sauce came in a separate pot, so it did not smother the taste of the fish. All well presented and the service... More

Dined here with friends for the second time in a month. The restaurant interior is, as you would expect for an eateries in the Square, very comfortable. We sat on the terrace which sadly meant we had to endure the racket from Pappas next door but that aside it was perfect on a warm evening. The food again was perfectly... More

Went to Wangthai for a late lunch and at that time the restaurant was not busy so service was fast and good. The food tasted as expected and was well prepared.

My lovely wife and I had dinner at Wangthai on a Saturday evening. The restaurant was busy. We had reserved a quiet table and were quickly shown to it. We decided to skip a starter and each have the seafood platter for one. The platters were reasonably generous, but the seafood was sadly overcooked. The prawns stuck to their shells,... More

I travel to Sandton frequently. This is the third time I've tried to go to this restaurant. If you are travelling alone, this is not the place to go to. They had seating outside but would not let me sit there because I was alone. Instead they try to make you sit inside at the back of the restaurant near... More

There is a good selection of food and it is well presented. The service is okay, although staff members could be a little bit more friendly.

Arrived at Wangthai and was greeted by the typical Thai tradition of smiles and bows with hands together. We were as requested taken to a table in a quiet area of the restaurant where our waiter introduced himself and made sure we were well looked after - his service throughout the night was impeccable. He offered to bring us a... More

The flagship of the Thai Africa Group is undoubtedly Wangthai Sandton which overlooks the prestigious Nelson Mandela Square. The most authentic Thai restaurant outside of Thailand.

Wangthai Sandtonalso serves the DIY dining experience: sensational Thai Suki Hot Pot. A culinary concept which dates back over 1 000 years in Asian history, Thai Suki Hot Pot today - continues to tantalise the pallet and tease the senses with its fragrant oriental flavours.
Best enjoyed as a group affair; the Thai Suki Hot Pot sees an aromatic broth, brimming with flavourful Eastern ingredients, placed in a pot, and atop an induction stove - within the centre of the table. This simmers away throughout the evening, while guests gentle poach their favourite selection of fresh ingredients.

There is very little effort involved, other than to indulge, at leisure, in the refreshingly light tastes of Thailand. Wangthai, invites both businessmen and women, as well as the social sect, to sample this ancient cooking tradition, to which it has added a unique measure of contemporary stylishness.
