Everytime I travel to Joburg, I need to have at least a meal at Wang Thai. My favorite of all time is Duck curry, its so rich in flavor, so so yummy. Others I love is prawn curry, hot plate mixed seafood. Price is little expensive comparing with other area, but that is quite normal since it is located in... More

Felt like a nice Thai, booked for 9pm but they asked us to come at 8.30pm to get "served well". We arrived and after being told we made 3 excellent choices for our meals, 3 minutes later we were told NONE of the excellent choices (including one recommendation) was available. After apologising we chose alternative meals which were fine but... More

I took my mom out for a nice dinner, and we were spoilt for choice with Wangthai. The service was spot on, and the food was exceptional. Very classy, and worth it!

Located in Nelson Mandela Square, a seat close to the window gives you great views of the square. The service from our waiter was good. The wine is a bit overpriced... The food was really good though. The lamb shank massaman curry is the business. The prawn curry ball starters and duck spring rolls are also quite good. Overall we... More

A pleasant place overlooking the square, happy attentative staff and food that is always satifying. This is one of those go to places you want to have in your "favourites" so you can do a booking knowing you will be glad you did. We think their noddle dishes are special but the curries are also nice.

A superb meal in a very stylish, up market setting. Very friendly and professional service. I found the food outstanding. Mid week dinner and the place was fairly full. Nice atmosphere and decor. Really enjoyed the experience. They do accept the Entertainer App deals.

Dropped in on a Sunday lunchtime. Given a nice table overlooking Mandela square from a elevated position. Both wife and I enjoyed our food. I had Kingclip with rice and some salad. Fortunately for me the green chilli sauce came in a separate pot, so it did not smother the taste of the fish. All well presented and the service... More

Dined here with friends for the second time in a month. The restaurant interior is, as you would expect for an eateries in the Square, very comfortable. We sat on the terrace which sadly meant we had to endure the racket from Pappas next door but that aside it was perfect on a warm evening. The food again was perfectly... More

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.
