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.

The service at this restaurant is excellent, but the food is just impeccable. We have enjoyed every meal we have had here, and we will be back very shortly.

Having not had real Thai is some time it scratched the itch. Green prawn curry was just right - lots of heat. Tom kha gai though a little bland. And service was just ok. Still - a nice meal.

Experienced cooking our food at the table having seafood vegetables and meat cooked in a broth. It was a first time for me and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Highly recommended.

The food is good! Atleast their version of curries, the red and the green curry, however it doesn't taste like true thai curry once have been to Thailand, that was a bit of a let down. However everything else still feels and looks thai.

Do be creative with picking dishes but don't have high expectations
