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!

I have to mark Wang Thai down because we tend to get take away, rather than eat-in meals and on the last two occasions we received different food to that we had ordered. 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

We have visited Wang Thai quite often over the last year and have never been disappointed! Always friendly efficient service and the food, wow! Tom yum soup is always a winner, spicy with lots of lemon grass flavour. The chicken and cashew dish is my favourite, but some of their specialty dishes are also something to write home about.
