If you feel like going out to a restaurant for supper and still want to cook your own food, then you should go to Wang Thai Sandton on Nelson Mandela Square. We sat at their noodle bar section, which consists of a table with a built-in hot plate in the centre. I ordered from the Suki Hot Pot menu and... More

This place has a good variety displayed on their menu, ambiance is great too. Loved the way the cocktails were made, and the best part was how delicious the food is, totally makes u feel I are in South east Asia rather than Africa! Authentic cooking and friendly staff. All in all great experience!!

Long standing Thai specialty fine dining venue, which has gone through some cycles in the past, but is definitely on the up again. The place had a make-over fairly recently and service has tightened up a bit as well. In spite of the cycles mentioned, the food has always been, and is, of high quality.

Have been here twice now, once in a large group of 15, and once in a small group of 3. Food was great on both occasions, but was better, along with the service in the smaller group. Caution - Hot food is Spicy Hot!!

We chose this restaurant because it was busy, the menu seemed interesting and we noticed some patrons getting a dinner massage. We were seated quickly and our waiter Isaac arrived promptly. He reviewed the menu, as this was our first visit and took our order. Our first observation of the menu was that there were many preparations we don't usually... More

Description
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.
