We were very impressed with the service and the signature dishes- the spinach cones and angry duck. Plus there was an excellent tamarind prawn.

Dined here on quite a few occasions. Was always good Thai mixed food. Seems to be a little tardy in quality of late. Past 2 times the food has been tasteless. We had the prawn dishes lately and the prawns were tough and rubbery. Fried...More

Several times I went here for dinner, the ambient is good for that purpose. The service is competent and kind. The food is the typical Thai-food, but with a high quality. Therefore I'm ready to pay a little bit more, but the prices are moderate....More

Situated on the popular Nelson Mandela Square, this restaurant enjoys a wonderful location if you have been out and about sightseeing in Joburg and simply want a decent place to eat. The staff was friendly enough, though we found it somewhat strange that the on-duty...More

This restaurant had modern decor that was quite chic. The staff was friendly and the food affordable for the type of meals they offer if you would like to splurge a bit but still not over do it with the spending. Everything was cooked perfectly...More

Sit at the back by the window there is better ambiance. The sizzling beef was wonderful on the night and rather than rice have a vegetable dish to complement.

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.
