Description: 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.

Very high ranked Thai place made a reservation before so we could have an outside table overlooking the square.
Very nice atmosphere, nice menu with lots of choice, good wine menu.
The starters where good and richly filled both main courses very good , specially the meat cubes on sizzling plate very tender.
small dessert of icecream also ok.
Our waittress was nice but a bit grumpy

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 rice was not fried at all. No visible sign of the egg either. Will rethink our next visit.

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.
I will come back...
