“Wonderful dining”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

We've dined at this restaurant on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed. Everything about it is exceptional from being welcomed at the door, table service, food quality, prices, ambience, location. Will definitely recommend it and continue to be satisfied patrons.

“One of our locals”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Though the service can be somewhat lacking depending on your waiter, this Wang Thai offers consistently good food in a fabulous setting. Our favourite seating is the corner table - it has the best view, though just about all tables are lucky that way. We've tried lots of dishes on the menu and have never been disappointed. Two favourites: red beef curry and angry duck.

“Lived up to the hype”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Our party of eight enjoyed a great evening last night at Wang Thai. The service was friendly and very importantly, professional and managed to serve all in good time. The cocktails were decent and not mind blowing, but there is a good variety and the wine list is also good though a little pricey. There were some nice starters, the food was great and catered for all our diverse tastes – from soya to kudu – and they were happy to supply more coconut milk to help temper the spice for those to whom 'Mild' was not mild enough. The 'Hot' dishes were delicious and the hotness subsided nicely into the great flavours that make Thai food so popular. The deserts were nice and they offer a few Thai specialities, such as rice pudding and butternut custard alongside popular choices, such as sorbet and chocolate spring rolls. The location is also brilliant and offer a beautiful view of the setting sun, I think if you're on the deck/outside area you'll probably have a view of Table Mountain too. In all, one of the nicest restaurants we've visited over the past year.

“Spot on Thai”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

I've been to Thailand and the food this restaurant serves is definitely close to the authentic Thai flavours (slight modifications for western preference). The portions are small unfortunately so do order extra rice. The prices are high but the food is fantastic! The Thai theme is quite cozy but the best part is the beach view outdoor seating. This is one of those restaurants where you will want to come back for more.
