The Thai dishes and seafood were very tasty. Mixed drinks and cocktails are indeed as the name implies 'best'. The atmosphere and view here is wonderful in the evening as the sun is going down. Our table was in the sand on the beach. The tables outside naturally do not have overhead fans and the ambiance is excellent with a... More

Wai Restaurant is everything you would want eating out in Patong. The food, the service and the price is the best. We were in a group of 8 and made our own banquet. Every meal we ordered over the 2 occasions were delicious. Unfortunately the map is incorrect on Tripadvisor, it is the last cafe on the beach approx 500... More

Love Wai Thai, food is great , its a fair price and a great location. I grew close with the boys here, and already miss them. They are very friendly and love to hang out and have fun. Great dish to get here is green papaya salad , or yellow chicken curry soup. All really tasty food, and nice cocktails.... More

After seeing this place well recommended on tripadvisor, we decided to check it out.. The staff were very friendly, food came out quick. And it was so cheap!!! This place definitely ticks all the boxes and we've since gone back almost everyday for lunch/dinner..definitely worth checking out :)

This place is right on the beach just north of Bangla Rd. We sought this restaurant out based on the reviews, and we were not disappointed. We ate here several times, both lunch and dinner. Food was always delicious, great variety, good value for money, and plenty of it. Staff have a great friendly attitude, and add to the relaxed... More

Don't usually have the time to write reviews on here, but this restaurant would have to make an exception. We had a good read of all the reviews for restaurants in Patong and Wai definitely stood out as one we had to try. We were in Patong for about 7 nights and literally ate at Wai every night but 1....

We ordered way too much food... More
