“Consistent good food”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

We regularly go to this restaurant and really enjoy the consistently high quality food. Service is generally good although they can get flustered if they are busy. The restaurant also has great views onto the lagoon mouth and sea.

“Dissapointment”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

The food was tasteless. If I pay this prices for food I expect a taste sensation. It was like a regular franchise restaurant - nothing special

“Great location Unauthentic food made worse by lazy staff.”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

Uninterested staff and management going through the motions with no creativity or feeling.
2 tom yum soups with no depth or flavours. Find the prawn and win a Toyota !
Glass noodle salad. Kitchen just forgot to put the dressing on. Bad old lettuce with brown specks dry spring onion. No love whatsoever. Totally no respect for the ingredients.
A fish curry, that tasted like a supermarket paste and the obviously overlooked sticky rice.
Great location, waiter had great dreads and a friendly smile, but that is all Wangthai has to offer!
The owners need to save this place! Please, I love the location

“Good sushi but slow service”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Wang Thai is my favorite Asian restaurant in Cape Town, but yesterday the service was merely non- existing. The Sushi and the roasted duck where good as always so were the prawn dish and the assorted starter platter. I understand that the restaurant was very busy but 20 min for drinks is a long time to wait.

“Good Food, Good Location”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Food was authentic and delicious, a little pricey. Stunning views of the lagoon, though due to the wind, it's difficult to enjoy these views oustide.
