The food here is amazing for take-aways, the massaman curry is always great. It's not so great for eating in, the vibe is a little weird and the service isn't great.

Recently moved to new larger venue. We were only ones sitting eating. Obviously popular spot for Thai take aways as the phone kept ringing and many deliveries went out. Clean diner, friendly staff and food was good

Wai thai has amazing fresh tasty food. If you enjoy thai this is the place to find that food. I would however prefer to have take away as the staff are not overly friendly. Restaurant small decor very plain and not inviting.

Dining in experience probably basic. Takeaways are the best value for money in Hillcrest. Food always consistent. Good range of selections. Can't go wrong with any of their wide range of selections.

They have daily specials and their portions are huge. I had mine as a takeaway. They are situated in a shopping center with safe parking.

A lovely oriental surprise in the heart of Hillcrest. Wide choice of well prepared south Asian cuisine. This venue also functions as a takeaway as well.
