The friendly hosts always ensure a welcome greeting. Attentive service and great menu options. Authentic Thai dishes. Own wine recommended, but selection improving. Book to avoid disappointment.

This restaurant has relocated. We knew the restaurant before and this was the first time after. Situated in a shopping mall, there is a mall feeling to it. More of a consume restaurant and previously it had more of a personal touch. However, the food was fantastic. So nothing has changed in that department. The staff is friendly and left... More

Having decided to treat ourselves with supper at a restaurant in Somerset West we decided to try the new Wangthai now positioned at the Sanctuary Mall. The new restaurant is better situated than the previous position in old Somerset west. The Wangthai brand has always been synonymous with good authentic Thai food - we were not disappointed. Authentic Thai cuisine... More

An absolute change from the old place, stunning at sunset. Friendly and helpful waiters and excellent value for money. Food is to die for and it was buzzing with locals and swallows. Food was one of the better Thai meals I have had. Owners are friendly and helpful and authentic Thai's. A must go back again.

Delicious food. The prices are high, the wine is expensive - take your own and pay corkage. We quickly bought a bottle at the Spar next door! Atmosphere can be a bit snotty. Very open plan, not much privacy. Not a great position - next to a big parking lot for Spar supermarket !

I booked a table for 6 telephonically several days ahead and when we arrived, there was nothing in their reservation book. The restaurant wasn't busy so they were able to seat us easily enough but not the point! We had no complaints about the food or service but the restaurant lacks ambiance and the decor is appalling. We were seated... More

We ordered Thai chicken curry and Thai prawn curry. The rice was served in a chipped vegetable dish and we were given a flat plate for our curry which was more like a soup and mine had very little chicken in it. The prawns were good but again more like a prawn soup than a curry.

10/10 for Wang Thai! I will most certainly be back and I highly recommended it. Great service, fabulous food (I had the Duck in red wine sauce), yummy cocktails and excellent value for money.
