Description: Located in the 5 star Hyatt Regency Sharm El Sheikh . The resort's specialty restaurant, entirely hand-carved in Egypt and Italy and modeled on a traditional Thai garden house (hence the name "Sala"). The lobby entry draws the guest through massive carved doors into a quaint bar. Its window overlooking the bay and a softly lit cove ceiling are simple but characterful. The restaurant itself is breathtaking: large windows overlook the Red Sea and lead to a magnificent two-level terrace; a dramatic beamed ceiling and walls are intricately carved with nature scenes; greenery is oriental in style and sits in handmade ceramic planters; seats have comfortable armrests and brightly coloured cushions; it all creates an Eastern style sensuality that permeates every inch of this alluring restaurant. A brass and raised bronze applique forms the backdrop of the wooden canopied theatre kitchen. As inside seating is on two levels, guests may gaze upon the chefs' performances while breathing in the heady scents of lemongrass and ginger. Theatrical lighting makes this part of the room the centre of the action. Seating up to 10 guests around a traditional round table, a private dining room is a temple of outstanding design, offering up truly remarkable double views of the Gardens Bay.

Gamal was fabulous and most attentive - great food and super service. The Chef comes out and meets the guests personally and is very keen to receive any feedback. The view of the resort from the balcony is the perfect setting to enjoy a wonderful authentic thai dinner.

The Sala Thai Restaurant in the Hyatt Regency is worth a visit, lovely ambience, beautiful views over the bay and superb authentic Thai food. The set menus are particularly good value and the service is outstanding. Our waiter Islam provided superb warm and personal service that helped the evening to be even more enjoyable.

The Hyatt's signature restaurant in Sharm offers Thai cooking from north east Thailand that would not be out of place in any first rate Thai in London, Bangkok or Sydney. The bonus is the open kitchen and the opportunity to watch the artistry of the kitchen at work. Flavours are finely balanced and dishes and accompaniments compliment each other well.... More
