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.

Curries are correct and good - highly recommended. Location is commercial but the food is good. Have been a number of times and would return again.

Wa quite excited to see wangthai in Sandton. We had heard a lot about the place. Let me start by saying being a thai restaurant they were out of Singha Beer. Settled for a local beer which was warm, before i could tell the waiter not to open he had already opened it. The food is average and was luke warm when it came to the table. We oredered the fish and it was cold and did not taste nice as well. My second beer was chilled and the lady was nice enough to waive of the charges of the warm beer. No warmth in the service unlike thai hospitality which is warm and makes you feeel special here. Restaurant was hot as they had heatwrs on with no ventilation. Average experince.Will not visit again.

This place is not cheap. But the food is always good. Excellent duck. I can't imagine there are many better restaurants in Nelson Mandela square.

This was an evening where we celebrated a special occasion. Each member of the party had a different dish and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great venue with superb food
