I have only ever had the best Thai experience at Wang Thai. Although the decor is now getting a little out dated the food deserves a full 5 stars!

The service is excellent and the staff are always friendly , given how busy the place gets , and they are always happy to mix things up a bit to give us the seared... More

My wife is a Coeliac and cannot eat wheat, and although we had asked for Rice Noodles we got wheat ones. Luckily I had ordered plain rice... More

Popped in for a quick dinner, and would definitely return. Food was really good, and value for money matched the quality. Good service made it even better. Will go back - especially for the crispy wonton!

We visited Wang Thai in Somerset West for the first time recently, without any reservations. The friendly welcome and attentive service by Jonathan were excellent and his knowledge of the menu was superb. We followed his recommendations and had dim sums (also try the deep fried versions!), dragon rolls with eel, and an assortment of curries - all divine. I... More

Not a great meal unfortunately. The food was overcooked and not tasty at all. The service was good but could have been better.
