Great food!

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... read 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

We went to Wang Thai at the advice of our B&B host as it was close by and he had heard positive comments about it. We enjoyed our visit and meal, which was made special because of the electricity cut shortlist after we arrived. The manager and his wife helped us (not experienced in Thai food) with our choices, and... More

I went to this restaurant with my boyfriend and our local friends. It had come highly recommended by our local friends. The food was amazing as well as the service but the décor and ambiance needs work. It's a Thai restaurant - play some Thai music (80's music in a Thai place? C'mon!). Also there was a massive empty patch... More

3 Days in a row, fantastic. We just had to go back as there were just too many lovely dishes. Day 1 was Dim Sum & Consummé as starters, Thai curry, Honey Chicken and Chicken Rice noodles as main, ending with Chocolate Spring rolls and Fried Banana. Every single dish prepared to perfection and an explosion of flavours. Our lovely... More

No complaints at all. The food and the service is great. Lovely variety of starters and soups, Super spicy thai curries & delicious noodle dishes. Best and freshest sushi I've ever had (we went on Saturday for the 50% off special). We were in the Strand for 2 weeks and unfortunately only found this gold mine in the last week.... More

I simply do not understand the mixed reviews here. I can't understand what people want. We almost did not go to the Wang Thai because of the conflicting reviews, but am I ever glad we did! The Medley of Dimsum is a must as a starter. From there we went into a Thai Curry, Honey Chicken and a noodle dish.... More

My Wife and I left work and decided to go to The Wang Thai restaurant on the Old Stellenbosch Rd. Somerset West. It was quiet but we were welcome by the staff and given a pleasant table for two. The service was good and our waiter took our drinks oder and in no time he was back with our order.... More

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
