This was one of our favourite places to eat in patong, even though we were staying at the other end of the beach. Great cheap food! I loved the garlic and pepper crab!

Nice and cheap Thai food, right at the beach, friendly staff. Only downside are the people (street vendors) asking you every 2 min. to buy something. We have been there 2 times and enjoyed it.

Food is really cheap and the "restaurant" is on the road side with plastic tables and chairs. But the food was great and so was the service, the guys are really friendly.

We have been coming to Wai Thai for many years and love it. Last year we were dissapointed to see that they are no longer allowed to put the chairs outside. Just wondering if that has changed. We are coming back in a few weeks.
