Brilliant Thai food

Set above Somerset West, with a view of the sea all the way to Strand. Outdoor and indoor dining. Very very good Thai food, the best I have had in a very long time. Quite large portion sizes (for me anyway), but absolutely delicious. Very authentic.

Food better than it looks as though it would from the outside. Not very busy which is a pity as the cooking deserves more customers.

Highly recommended. This is one of the few restaurants my wife and I have eaten at in the Cape Town area offering tasty, scrumptious food. That's saying a lot given our experience dining out everyday here for 3 months. Our entrees were tasty and beautifully presented. My order: Roast Duck, 119 Rand, served in your choice of red wine, ginger... More

Food is like in any commercialized thai or chinese restaurant. If you don't feel like cooking you have this as alternative. The quality is ok but don't expect more than that

My family and I have been going to this restaurant since it's opening and the more occasions we go, the more we realize that this establishment really need to do something about their decor. Your first experience is a very small and dark restaurant, not a big seller for most people, but for me, it's perfect. There is an outside... More

We were tired of average/bad Sumerset West Restaurants and decided to try oriental food. It was realy good and was of a quality what a oriental restaurant should be..

Excellent fusion of Thai and Japanese cuisine available. I am not a fan of sushi but some members of our party insisted I try and I have to say it was really great. For the main course we switched to Thai and I was really pleased with my choice - Chicken Pad Thai. Reasonably priced with a wide choice. The... More

I have visited Wang Thai many times in the past and it has always done well in my books. The food is always good and the portions are not hearty but are decently sized. The waiters are well enough trained and I have never had a bad experience here. I would recommend Wang Thai as a beautiful restaurant to have... More

We loved this place and go regularly, but the last couple of times has been very frustrating . The previous couple who managed the place used to do the meet and greet but also took orders, made up bills and cleared tables - so were part of the team . New managers came in recently and these new guys have... More
