Great Thai restaurant!!

The service was excellent right from the time I made the booking, I was told I could bring our own wine as I wanted some specific wine and we paid a nominal corkage fee. The food was absolutely wonderful, as good as any Thai restaurant in Johannesburg. It was a very hot evening so a few fans on... read more

My friends and I ate at this restaurant many times during our recent holiday in Pereybere. We always enjoyed the food which was delicious and beautifully presented, and the service was exceptionally good with all staff pleasant and welcoming. This is by far the best restaurant in the area. Loved the cocktails too - particularly the Cocotinis!

We went to Wang Thai expecting some customized version of "real Thai food" but what we found was much better than we thought. The drinks were nicely made and the fish cake starters were very tasty as well, our prawn green curry was a little watered down but still flavorful. The owner kept walking around talking to all tables and... More

I have been there three times, twice with colleagues & once with family. The atmosphere is really good, with a very positive vibe. The food is delicious. Since Thai food has become one of my favourites. I congratulate the chefs and the Management for their good work.

When we arrived not too late for dinner, there were places only inside. It was really hot inside, ventillators only, no air conditioning. They run out of lobster and big crab. They run out of satay sauce and replaced it with sweet and sour without telling a word. The Tom-yang soup has no taste, only hot. The glasses did not... More

Before you write your first review, know the difference between a page and a sheet of paper. Wang Thai's menu contains 6 pages. Your intention to share a set menu for ONE PERSON between two persons made it quite difficult for us. Finally ,be consistent and in line with what you write and how you rate a restaurant and food...

We visited Mauritius for our honeymoon and travelled all round the island. Our dinners at Wang Thai Restaurant was a wonderful finish to most of our days there. The cuisine was superb, the atmosphere was great and the service was unbelivable. We tried both chinese and thai dishes as well as their special vanilla rum. We couldn't be happier and... More

Lovely decor inside and out with the best trained staff. Service was friendly and efficient even to the point of laying your cloth napkin on your lap. Wife's chair was pushed in for her. Little points that add up to make you feel special. Food was excellent and prompt without rushing you. If you like a lot of spice tell... More

This has to be one of our favourite restaurants in Pereybere. Great food friendly but attentive waiters. Great value for your money. The best vanilla rum we have tried

Ate here twice during our stay and both meals were excellent and great value. Service is friendly and good. Starters are very tasty and the mains also lovely (never any duck available, I assume they are not easy to catch on Mauritius!!) I would highly recommend this restaurant and when I am next in Mauritius i will be sure to... More
