“Great place for Lunch or Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We ate here twice whilst in Patong, lunch and dinner. Beautiful food, service was excellent, great location, literally metres from the beach. Thai food is beautiful and authentic, i asked for medium hot on 2 dishes, and they were very, very hot! And i like hiot chilli! Kids had some of the Western food which was nice also. Drinks well priced, though make sure you ask for cold, cold beer and drinks.

“Great Thai Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Trip advisor helps so much when you are in a new place looking for restaurant suggestions.
I went along to Wai Thai based on the reviews and I was not disappointed.
It was quiet and I took a table on the sand with a lovely sea breeze blowing in from the beach.
Service was quick and efficient.
My beef massaman was a huge bowl which I couldn't finish.
It was excellent although the beef a little tough.
I requested not too spicey and the flavour was great.
Complimentary fruit provided unexpectedly at the end.
Beer is cheap also
A great place to eat in Patong

“Huge potions, and some of the best food in Phuket”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

This place is my girlfriends and I's favourite resturant to eat at in patong. From the outside it does not look much. But as soon as your food arrives all is forgotten. They have a huge menu of thai and western foods that come in very big potions and the quality of food is the best in had during my stay here. We are here numberous times and were never disappointed. A must try whilst in patong!!!

“Excellent choice, value and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

We have just spent 2 weeks in Patong and were advised of this restaurant by friends who we were travelling with. As with all of the restaurants along the beach, the hawkers can become tiring, however all eating aspects of this place are great. It is cheap, has a huge choice of fresh thai food and the staff are there to please.

“Still very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

We spent our first meal on our recent visit to Phuket at Wai Thai and its was still good. We discovered 12 months ago on our last holiday and wasn't disappointed on our return this year. Food was was fresh and taste great. Cocktails were good and cheap. Staff are friendly and the location on the beach is great to watch the sunset. So glad to see it hasn't changed. My kids think its the best Pad Thai on Phuket. Hopefully be back there soon.
