Loved this restaurant. Excellent food and reasonably good service. Remember it's the pink plastic chair restaurant at the end of Patong bay... Other restaurants will try to lead you to their chairs.. Be warned. Fish is just excellent and the tiger prawns are fab. Excellent...More

Service with a smile! Value was great and the food was also delicious. The bill for 6 people came to about $12 Aussie each and we could not finish it all. Great spot for a sunset dinner!.

I live in Patong now for 4 years, and frequent this restaurant at least once a week. They are very reasonably priced considering the setting. The food is very good. They have probably the best service of all the restaurants in and around Phuket (let...More

We have been coming to Wai Thai for many years and love it. Last year we were dissapointed to see that they are no longer allowed to put the chairs outside. Just wondering if that has changed. We are coming back in a few weeks.
