Not bad

The food taste here is not bad compare to others but I would prefer the outside restaurant more because of the price.

We sipped a cocktail while watching the sun set over Patong Beach, then sat down to a sumptious Thai Buffet and some traditional Thai entertainment. The food, the staff & the decor of this beautiful restaurant are all top shelf. It capped off a nice day in Patong Beach. Thank you!

I had the opportunity to take a group to Sala Bua for dinner on 22 January. Sala Bua exceeded expectations yet again! The service was accommodating, hands-on, slick, efficient and smooth - and a smile was always at hand. Thank you for making this a successful event! I'm glad to join you again on 01 March. Highly recommended!

A group of four of us came to Sala Bua yesterday evening. Our experience with the staff from the beginning was quite poor. Our taxi unfortunately dropped us at the hotel rather than the restaurant, and the young man at the front desk was too busy playing games on his iPhone to even make eye contact with me to help...

While the service was good, the buffet spread when I visited as part of a group could have been better. The quality was also average. Nothing to complain about but there's nothing to shout about too..
