“staff need more training BUT otherwise brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

all round great value for money from the great meal selections, through to the authentic Thai looking decor of the restaurant.

only issue: waiters need more/better training as my party of 6 had issues with incorrect wine/water servings and did note a bit of attitude as opposed to purely a language barrier from some of the waiters.

nevertheless, I will definately return - really impressed!

“Great choice, authentic feel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We were party of 6 and were delighted to get a table without having booked. The restaurant offered a varied menu of Thai dishes. Dishes included variations on stir frys, a variety of curry as well as fish and vegetarian dishes.
The services was quietly efficient and friendly. The food was well presented and delicious.Without exception we all enjoyed the meal. The clientele was varied but most over 35 in age.
A nice touch was the waitresses in traditional Thai dress. Our table was round which was great for conversation.
Erawan is a restaurant I'd definitely reccomend

“Erewan tops for Thai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Excellent Thai fare, attentive service and good value for money. Definitely the best place to go for Thai food in the southern suburbs if you want to eat out, rather than have a takeaway at home. We especially enjoyed the dim sum (water chestnut and bamboo shoots), fresh and spicy hot som tam salad and prawn toasts to start. Crispy duck also good. Bill for two, with wine, came to just over R500, which is why we'll be back.

“One of my favorites!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Erawan is one of my go to places in Cape Town. The food is delicious and reasonably priced. The dim sum is amazing especially the one with water chestnuts. You have to book because it is so popular but it is well worth it!
