My Friends took me to Wang Thai to celebrate my Birthday.....I have been to Thailand many times and was looking forward to Authentic Thai Food..... It is not that easy to find authentic Thai cooking, but Wang Thai did not disappoint!! I had the Thai Style Tom Yum Soup and the Duck in Coconut & Ginger sauce. Enjoyed every mouthful.... More

Our first visit to their new premises. The ambiance is still the same serene Asian atmosphere. The reception and service is absolutely perfect. The starter of prawn blankets, done in a delicate batter, and deep fried, was superb. Followed with the main course of juicy soft chicken with a delicious honey infuse, and served on egg rice was really stunning.... More

We were a large group,14 to be exact but the service and food was excellent. It is not that easy to find authentic Thai cooking in Somerset west but this is a very good alternative.

Having recently traveled to Thailand, I wasn't too optimistic especially as this was the first time my parents were trying Thai food, and I've been disappointed in the past, but I was pleasantly surprised. They love it and the food was as true to the "real" thing. Compliments to the kitchen. Service was good, prompt and attentive - thank you.... More

I have always loved Wang Thai. Even at their previous location. The new Wang Thai takes it to another level. There are new items on the menu, the restaurant ambience has been sorted and it has a great view. You can also sit outside. Staff are very friendly and the food.... oh my word... mouth watering and divine. An epic... More

The friendly hosts always ensure a welcome greeting. Attentive service and great menu options. Authentic Thai dishes. Own wine recommended, but selection improving. Book to avoid disappointment.

This restaurant has relocated. We knew the restaurant before and this was the first time after. Situated in a shopping mall, there is a mall feeling to it. More of a consume restaurant and previously it had more of a personal touch. However, the food was fantastic. So nothing has changed in that department. The staff is friendly and left... More

Having decided to treat ourselves with supper at a restaurant in Somerset West we decided to try the new Wangthai now positioned at the Sanctuary Mall. The new restaurant is better situated than the previous position in old Somerset west. The Wangthai brand has always been synonymous with good authentic Thai food - we were not disappointed.
