If your looking for great food, amazing atmosphere, excellent service, and you enjoy Thai cuisine or it is your first Thai experience, like my husband's, there is no better place to visit than Wangthai restaurant. Been a couple of times while on holiday in Mauritius...and it has never disappointed. Highly recommend it.More

You can take the Thai girl out of Thailand but you can’t take the Thailand out of the Thai girl! Of course we end up at a Thai place in Mauritius to end the night out. Have to say it was rather delicious or ‘Aroi’...as they say in Thailand. The owner came over and gave me a home made vanilla rum to finish with and anyone that knows me knows I don’t drink rum but this was unbelievable! So good I had a second and hopefully I’ll pick a bottle up before we come back for friends to try out, it really is sensational! #oceanvhotel #mauritius #hibiscusbeach #holiday #WangThaiMore

Had dinner with family at Wang Thai twice and had a splendid time there. The food is really good especially the starters and pad thai. The decors are very beautiful with a nice and friendly atmosphere as well as the staffs.

We had read good reviews about this restaurant, and as it was just a short stroll from our apartment, we were keen to give it a go. We ended up dining there 3 times! The restaurant is beautiful, from the fairy lights to the table...settings and the view into the kitchen. The staff are attentive and polite. But what we really came for was the food. It did not disappoint. Every dish we had, and we had a few, was outstanding. we can’t recommend this restaurant highly enough. To all the staff at Wang Thai, thank you for a great diningMore

My wife and I have been regular visitors to Wang Thai for 16 years, and the reason we keep coming is quality. The food, the staff, and the service are all excellent. Everything comes together to provide a lovely occasion at an affordable price. Dean,...Anish and all the staff deserve praise for what they achieve.More

Terribly, it will be the name of the description, as I have no other words. Too bad I cannot write the other “colleagues” of suffering in this restaurant There were 50 degrees in the restaurant, the food came to our incomplete happiness, but something came...up with the others who were waiting for 30 minutes and nobody asked them anything Food was not as bad as experience, but I recommend owners not to continue.More

Good Thai food, although some meals miss the Thai touch. Despite the food is good, the restaurant is warmly decorated and nice staff.

Regrettably, the restaurant fell short on both portions and service. The small servings left us wanting more, and the unresponsive staff added to the disappointment. A lackluster experience that fails to meet expectations for a satisfying dining outing.meal was good

We read highly rated reviews on this restaurant as being the best restaurant in Mauritius? We waited days for a table as bookings only we were told. Booked a table and we were all excited to go ….the service was very slow asking for our...drinks twice ti two different servers. Tinned phoenix beer tasted of mould!! Food arrived and was tasteless …? oh my such a disappointment. No Thai flavours or chilli heat like nothing but just bland food. No chilli heat or Thai spices in a ‘Thai’ restaurant even after asking our waiter for Thai heat…nothing? Very disappointing and will not be returning…More

We are regular visitors to Mauritius and eat at this lovely Thai restaurant every time we are here. They have a large selection of delicious starters and main courses to choose from, as well as an extensive drinks menu. What we enjoy most though, is...the friendly welcome we receive and the efficient service. A great place to dine with family and friends!More

I have been to this restaurant a few times over the past year, and while I have always had minor complaints, I have never mentioned them because I want to support local businesses. However, my experience tonight was so disappointing that I feel compelled to...write this review. I ordered the prawns in pepper and garlic sauce with extra sauce. When it arrived, the sauce was tasteless and watery. I mentioned this to the owner/manager, who did not apologize or offer to replace the dish. Instead, he brought me salt, soy sauce, and fish sauce to add flavor. I was shocked by his dismissive attitude, and I felt that he was not respecting my feedback. I mentioned this again and told him that I had a theory as to why the sauce was like that. He immediately said that the chef never added water. This was very telling, as it's exactly what he was thinking and exactly what had happened. I told him so, and he said he'd have a word with the chef, who, surprise surprise, denied it. I said I was disappointed. He asked me if I wanted a vanilla rum as I ordered the bill. I said sure. He offers this to everyone and has done so every time I've been here to every table. When I got the bill, there was no mention of the tasteless meal. The free rum he hands out to every customer was supposed to be enough to make up for the tasteless meal. I told him the rum was an insult, and he told me he made it especially for me. Utter gaslighting nonsense. We had a discussion about how he makes this rum in the months previously, and he told me he makes it by buying huge bottles of the cheapest rum on the island and adding flavoring to it. He obviously forgot that we had this discussion. It's totally insulting and a terrible way to run a business. I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone. The food i had was bland, and the owner/manager's explanation for why the sauce was watery was not credible.. There are other Thai restaurants in Grand Baie, such as Aroi Thai, where the customer is respected. I would recommend trying there.More

The staff is very friendly and the owner really marvellous. I really...want to advice everybody who want a great dinner ad a affordable price to go to this restaurant. It is the only one who deserves a Michelin star in Mauritius. There filled chicken wings, the crab and the seafood salad are delicious. Please enjoy at least a good dinner on this restaurant.More
