Kai Thai in Montecasino in my favourite. The food is 5 STAR. My favorite meal in Prawn Korma hot. Desert fried bananas with coconut ice cream. I do not like ice-cream but this ice cream is amazing? Service is excellent. Lovely atmosphere, especially th VIP room or balcony. I have also tried the one in Olivedale expecting to be disappointed but the food there was up to expectations. Crab curry & lamb vindaloo also excellent, I am told.

Kai Thai is one of those places you just cannot get enough of. Their crispy duck is my all time favourite meal. If you do not enjoy blank food though, I would recommend you steer away from the steamed Kingklip. What a way to destroy an awesome piece of fish. Wonderful setting though.

If you have never been to Thailand this is probably the closest you will get in JHB to what is served locally. The food and selection is outstanding. You cannot go wrong with any curry which just bursts with flavour in your mouth. Don't forget the rice and spring rolls.

Terrible food. Terrible service. Terrible atmosphere. The only worse Thai "restaurant" is Crank. Yuck.
