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.

I am not a fan of Thai food but however the food here was truly exceptional. Only down side was the early closing times on a Saturday night - you feel pressurized to leave early.

The waiter was efficient but the kitchen was not. It took far too long for the food to arrive even though the restaurant was less than half full. A pet hate of mine, paper napkins. Cheap! For the prices charged, unacceptable.

Really excellent Thai food that offers everything good about the cuisine - aromatic and spicy yet fragrant. Was a lovely combination on flavors

Service was good and the manager resolved an issue efficiently.

Good setting overlooking Sandton Square.

Very enjoyable overall!

This restaurant used to be really good. What a disappointment it has become. A couple of us ordered seafood platters and most of it was of disappointing quality and grossly over cooked. The manager had an unfriendly attitude and was argumentative. She hasn’t learnt the basics of client service yet.
I have only had disappointing meals here lately. I have now given up, won’t ever be back.
