“Thai Heaven”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

This is the place is you want a Thai Food Fix.

You will find it at the top of the Escalator in Sun Coast Casino Complex and the entrance is to the right of Havana Grill.

Whatever you do try to avoid being tempted by all the eating places on the ground floor as although no doubt O.K. this is the place to go unless you opt for Havana Grill next door.

“Great for our group”

I had dinner there while hosting a large group and the service was great, the waiters friendly, the food tasty and everyone was very kind and flexible. It was a perfect venue for our big group.

“Buried treasure at Suncoast Casino”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2013

Tucked away as it is on the first floor, the Kai Thai is easily overlooked among numerous other dining options in the casino complex. Unfortunately this was the case on the two occasions I visited the restaurant - it was very quiet, with a resulting lack of ambience despite the attractively laid out and decorated interior. A real shame, because the food was delicious and authentic and the service attentive. A great place for a group to dine but a bit disconcerting when you are the only couple in the place!

“Tasty Thai dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

Having travelled to Thailand several times, and having completed a cooking course there, I tend to be wary of local Thai restaurants, but I was attracted by the sumptuous decor to try the food at this one. I was not disappointed. Although my red curry vegetarian dish had vegetables which would not have been added to such a dish in Thailand, it was delicious. My husband was very happy with his green chicken curry dish too. The Jasmine rice was fluffy and fragrant and all in all, this Kai Thai restaurant has successfully captured the feel and taste of Thailand. The menu is beautifully presented with excellent information about Thailand and its cuisine. I only hope the patrons spare the time to read and appreciate it.

“Nice Thai food in Suncoast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2013

Situated on the first floor in the Suncoast shopping mall you'll find Kai Thai. An ok looking Thai restaurant between all other restaurants in the mall. I just had a quick bite here (friend rice) which was pretty ok and good value for money. The staff is friendly and the food was served pretty quick. So if you're need of asian food, this is an ok option to go in Durban.
