Lovely as Long as it is warn!

Fabulous spot for the sunset and great for families. Although chicken nuggets will set you back a fiver! Hubby got the seafood basket (I'm not a seafood lover and couldn't be bothered with all the cracking and opening etc) but he liked it especially the specially requested hot sauce!

The restaurant has a great location on the sea front and you may enjoy the fresh breeze after working around in Ao Nang. Unfortunately, the food was pretty average and overpriced too. The service was over all friendly but the waiters served our starters and main course at the same time which made eating a little stressful. In total, this... More

The highlight of Sala Bua is the beachfront location, giving it a very pleasant ambience. However, the food was only ok - it was quite bland and lacked some of vibrant flavours of Thai cuisine that we are used to. It's worth a visit for the location, but there is better food in Ao Nang that is also less expensive.

We celebrated a birthday here and they did their best to accommodate by providing a birthday cake (free) with the birthday boy's name and also balloons on the chairs. The food was great and the view of the beach at sunset was stunning. Tip: Order the red snapper with garlic, salt and chilli

Dragged my girlfriend along to Sala Bua for a meal as I had read some great reviews about the place and we were really keen to sample some good seafood whilst in Ao Nang! Despite the high price (very high indeed for Thailand), we thought the quality would be worth it. The meal itself was absolutely lovely; we went with... More

Brilliant food, fantastic people. A must visit for all. The Thai green curry is to die for. Local delicacies served with style. Just great.

Beautifully presented food and superb quality in the best setting in Ao Nang. The owner was very knowledgeable and interesting not only about food but also about Thailand. One of the best settings in Ao Nang.

As all of the restaurant’s signage states in big bold lettering - this restaurant is recommended by Lonely Planet - which is why I chose it for my wife’s birthday dinner. It’s in a great location at the end of Ao Nang beach, sitting in the middle of a row of similar restaurants. The weather was pretty ordinary the night... More

We had meat, fish and a pizza. The food was not more than mediocre, service slow and the cocktails (pina c.) just terrible. They trapped us with the happy hour, but in end it was a discount on the cocktails of just 1 US$. The total for us as a family of 4 was around 100,- US$. Way too much... More
