Not been to Somerset West Wang Thai for 4 years. Went for lunch.. This WT needs a kick in the proverbial! Starters were OK, prawns especially, but only one of three mains acceptable. Stay away from their seafood pot... stinks somewhat, the terriaki fish dried out, almost inedible. Good Thai beef tho. Lovely egg fried rice but the steamed rice... More

I really enjoyed the variety on their menu. They also serve big portions which makes it easy to share between friends. Their sushi is really good!

Thai food ranks outside my top 5 faves, but this place did the cause of Thai cuisine a lot of good. Friendly service, great winter warmer deal andyummy food with a kick. Crispy wontons followed by a Mussalmaan curry did the job.

Excellent Sushi and very helpful and friendly service. View was great over looking Somerset West/Strand and the sea. Would recommend the pork and Blue Island Cocktail!

An overall very disappointing experience (3 times in a row now) from a restuarant that used to be considered one of the best in the town. Food arrived ice cold (carrots were still frozen on the dumplings) and had to be sent back, previous experiences include poor service and overpriced. No plans to return in the near future.

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!

We are lovers of spicy food and have eaten thai food on four continents, and remarkably this is our favourite thai restaurant outside of thailand . 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
