Description: The flagship of the Thai Africa Group is undoubtedly Wangthai Sandton which overlooks the prestigious Nelson Mandela Square. The most authentic Thai restaurant outside of Thailand. Wangthai Sandtonalso serves the DIY dining experience: sensational Thai Suki Hot Pot. A culinary concept which dates back over 1 000 years in Asian history, Thai Suki Hot Pot today - continues to tantalise the pallet and tease the senses with its fragrant oriental flavours. Best enjoyed as a group affair; the Thai Suki Hot Pot sees an aromatic broth, brimming with flavourful Eastern ingredients, placed in a pot, and atop an induction stove - within the centre of the table. This simmers away throughout the evening, while guests gentle poach their favourite selection of fresh ingredients. There is very little effort involved, other than to indulge, at leisure, in the refreshingly light tastes of Thailand. Wangthai, invites both businessmen and women, as well as the social sect, to sample this ancient cooking tradition, to which it has added a unique measure of contemporary stylishness.

We have eaten here many times, and the food is always good authentic Thai. The service is average but the view over the square is lovely. Drinks are pretty expensive so watch out. We will definitely go back...

The portions were suitably sized to enable sampling of more than one dish. As a big group we ordered a variety of dishes and shared. All were superb. Well priced and good service

Even with a bevy of restaurants to chose from the Wangthai earned a return visit! The pad thai was yummy and the wait staff friendly. On our second visit I tried the fried banana dessert which was not the best, but otherwise we enjoyed both visits here. One word of caution...during our second visit a laptop bag was stolen from a nearby table...keep your wits about you while in Sandton.
