After long time, I went back there for lunch with my friends. They had some new items which sounded interesting. Big mistake, it was horrible, some wired curry paste on overcooked vegetables. Very bad taste and quality. There are better Thai places in town. Even though I commented to the waiter, he couldn't be bothered.

Went to The Wave branch of "Shang Thai" & was seated outside as the weather was pleasant. Chicken Satay & Pandan Leaves were great starters as well as the Thai Beef Salad. Main course picked the Panag Gaï (tangy red chicken curry) which was excellent!! Prices a little high but worth it for the quality and atmosphere.

Shang Thai is mainly found in or next to malls. The food is Thai/asian inspired. some Snacks are served while waiting for the food (chips with sauces) without charge. The portions are quite big (for me half of the Portion would also have been sufficient) and special requests are possible. The Service could be better. Attention to the guests Needs... More

I have visited both restaurants many times and I am amazed that the standards maintained are identical. They serve the most delicious Thai food in muscat (many may object to this tag). I say this because of their incredible consistency. If you order a particular dish 5 times in a row, you will get the exact same dish (same flavor,... More

The restaurant is open and kids are screaming and playing in the walkway on scooters skateboards etc so not a relaxing pleasant ambience. Food is very disappointing we visit Thailand a lot and it isn't authentic despite the chef looking Thai but maybe Filipino? Staff have an attitude and it all seems too much bother for them sadly.

Lunch after shopping, this was a great choice with a choice of menu or Buffet selections. Rice and fish dishes were excellent, spring rolls very good. We didn't try the deserts but the juices were good. Service was friendly and prompt at a busy time and we were well satisfied.

As a great lover of Thai Food this restaurant was hugely disappointing. The only flavour in each dish was soy. Advice, don't even try it!

Had been there with the family on a weekend night... think to have some good food... this place doesn't even carry basic raw materials for the kitchen... then why the hell are they running the place.....

Description
Shang Thai brings pure and traditional Thai cuisine in a manner that is freshly and organically cooked, just like it is in the homes in Thailand. Exceptionally flavorful, every dish has a texture and essence of its own, owing to its traditional cooking techniques, spelling out a recipe that entices the taste buds. With its most delightful and extensive menu, Shang Thai offers much more than just the popular Tom Yum Goong or Pad Thai, steering choices to an all- embracing fusion of flavors.
