Delicious Food, Amazing Ambience

Recently came here for dinner, missed the sunset however the live band's soothing music gave so much warmth and cosy feeling. Food was so delicious, we were all so full and enjoyed the music very much. Service was good too! Toilet was clean and nice. A very home-ly dining place.

We passed this restaurant the evening before, but only being two we passed as it didn't look to encourage couples. However the following evening we were a larger group and the offered buffet dinner sounded tempting, and the surroundings were also fine for larger groups. When we arrived we passed the large buffet and BBQ, and things looked delicious. We... More

Walking along Patong Beach into this amazing restaurant, greeted with the friendliest smiles. Great menu with a mix of western and local delicacies. You would be hard pressed not to find something you like. Then out came the scented cool towels, perfect on a hot evening after a walk on the beach. The food was heavenly, the service could not...

This restaurant is attached to the Impiana Phuket Cabana Resort and is located right on the beach. The location is fantastic with a great outlook over Patong beach, however the food is over-priced and the service could do with improvement - we waited half an hour for our starters.

Walked past in the afternoon. It showed 690 nett for its buffet BBQ. Decided to return & was surprised to see they changed the price to 750 nett. Spoke to the restaurant manager n cane to a compromise of 700 nett. Seafood like prawns, swimmer crabs weren't fresh. Squids, slipper lobsters were just ok but the buffet spread isn't fantastic...

While staying at the local Impiana Hotel we had dinner at the Sala Bua Restaurant. It was magical. I had a steak with side of veg. Everything on my plate was absolutley delicious. The staff weren't the most attentive and we paid top dollar but the meal was was great.

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!
