Description: Shang Thai brings pure and traditional Thai cuisine in a manner that is freshly and organically cooked, just like it is in the homes in Thailand. Exceptionally flavorful, every dish has a texture and essence of its own, owing to its traditional cooking techniques, spelling out a recipe that entices the taste buds. With its most delightful and extensive menu, Shang Thai offers much more than just the popular Tom Yum Goong or Pad Thai, steering choices to an all- embracing fusion of flavors.

I had a pad thai and it was really good. Of course you can't compare it to Thailand's standard. But it is not that bad as everyone puts it to be.

We were hungry and called at "The Wave" to what was available. It was early, around 1900hrs, and the restaurant was quiet. That I can live with. The service was attentive and pleasant and they explained it didn't liven up until about 2100hrs. Most of their business before that is in delivering take-a-ways. The food was tasty, and the surroundings were clean, crisp and mellow. The musak was in keeping and not intrusive. Wondered what would happen at other times of the day as only wooden bulks between the restaurant and the public covered access, if it was noisy out there !!!! Meal price was RO 28 for two with just enough to fill us to the brim. For Thai food it was not too spicy so some palates would need a boost, which they are more than willing to do. Serving staff mainly Filipino and Indian, the cooks were Thai and Sri Lankan so they should know how to produce the goods. Well done. I am looking forward to my delivered meal as they deliver in the near vacinity.

Good Thai food staples - teh best I have found in town. But it is right next to a big petrol station and there seems to be a smell of petrol about the place which is a bit offputting. Sevice can be a bit haphazard with dishes arriving in random order.

The restaurant has great food choices but the taste is not authentic Thai food, not even close to it. I am not Thai but tried some good Thai food and i can tell the difference. Ambiance and service is okay....it's the food that isn't.
