We went to Erawan on a whim and was pleasantly surprised! The food was very tasty, the service was good and the atmosphere was oriental. Although the restaurant is still establishing itself, we were surprised at how many people had already discovered this gem. Underground parking is currently free and provides easy access to the restaurant. The price of the food is slightly more expensive than other Thai restaurants, but is still good value for your money. The waitresses are from Thailand, which was a bit of a challenge language-wise and our waitress had to call the head waitress once to find out what we were expecting from her. All-in-all it was a good experience.

We chose this venue for my daughter's 16th birthday dinner with the family. It did not disappoint.
Excellent service, Divine food - but most of all - loads of vegetarian options. Half of our party were vegetarian and it was such a welcome change to have some choices.

To start we tried Prawns on toast, Curry Puffs & spring rolls. All very tasty.
I tried the Ba Me Prik Phao Goong (prawns stir fried with chilli paste, cashews and noodles. Divine but even medium is not for the fainthearted.
We also tried the Stir fried glass noodles with tofu & Phad Pak Ruam (fragrant tofu with veg)
Everyone was most delighted with their food - but be cautious if you are not able to tolerate curry/chilli.
The service is impeccable and the Thai girls look beautiful. We will certainly be visiting again.

We were welcomed by beautifully dressed staff and a complimentary glass of MCC. Had wonderful service at this restaurant - very attentive and friendly - and our food was delicious. The menu is diverse and there are a number of interesting dishes to try. Not your average thai restaurant. Beautiful at night with all the candle light - great to have a new restaurant in Durbanville.

My wife and I have eaten here 4 times in two weeks and every meal has been fantastic. The variety is good, but most importantly, the dishes have been tasty and well prepared. Certainly rates as the best Thai style restaurant we have eaten at in South Africa. We agree with Jacky N. in rating them a 10/10.
