We have visited this restaurant for a dinner but finally were quite disappointed. Wine was pretty good though :) This restaurant doesn't have some typical for Thai cuisine dishes (which is ok generally) but the ones we selected (fish and Phad Thai) were very far from what you can name as good. Even smelled not good. And what drove much... More

Food is okay Wine was overpriced Service was good and it was enjoyable , not a wonderful vibe at all , but okay and relaxing ... chicken always tastes funny in these places I don't know what it is , perhaps mass produced chicken . Will come back again ofcourse but not running !!

Visited Wang Thai with work colleagues after a hiatus of a couple of years. Food was reasonable, ticking the boxes of expected Thai classics, but nothing spectacular. Service was also efficient, although perhaps a little rushed. Portion sizes were rather small though at the price point (prawn curry for example had 5 small prawns in a bowl of sauce for... More

I'm not sure how authentic this is because I've never actually been to Thailand. I've eaten at plenty of Thai restaurants though and this one is pretty good! I've been twice actually, once with a friend and then once as part of a large group and the service has been spot-on both times. Tasty food, good wine too.

Haven't been to this restaurant for a while (don't go to Sandton that often), but will definitely change that way of thinking just to go back soon! It's one of the restaurants that maintains its quality & superb food! We ordered several main dishes to share & my favorite was the crispy duck! Wow!! Service was very good & the... More

I can't fault the food at Wang Thai. I love their food and had not been there for a while (I'm talking years). So to go back and have the angry duck, was a fitting start to a horrible end. I brought a bottle of bubbly with me as we were in a celebratory mood. Maybe the waiter thought I... More
