Delicious

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!

I have been here every now and then because the food is nice and the location is on the beach. Price, quality and quantity of the food is very reasonable. I'm a vegetarian and the chef is very dedicated and adjusted the menu to vegetarian menu as I requested. The location is very easy to find but it's a pity... More

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...
