Best Ever Thai Food!

It would not do justice to this restaurant if I don't share. This is by far the best Thai Restaurant I even been to. The atmosphere is nice. The staffs are well trained and service was good and reasonably priced as well. The food are definitely 100% authentic Thai. According to Thomas (the owner... read more

Tired travelers, we stayed in and ate at the Sala Thai so as to get to bed early for an early departure. The restaurant ambiance is elegant, Thai, calm, and delicious food was ours.

Recommended to us by someone who works at Karumba resort (Dee) this lovely intimate restaurant is well laid out, has friendly staff, good service and really excellent Thai food. We had one starter, a panang curry, a stir fry and jasmine rice which was plenty for 2 people. The quality and taste was superb and without doubt one of the... More

I've been to some Thai Restaurants outside Thailand and I can say Sala Thai cook Thai Food. Some Thai Restaurants just "remind" you of Thai food :). Thanks to Trip Advisor.. This restaurant is like an Oasis in the middle of MALE. Good food, Great service..

Well, imagine this. You are in the remote island and you still can have mango slice, Swiss ice cream (mouvenpick) and thai food accompanied with great service. Great!! I think this is the right single word to describe this restaurant. It's very close to Jen hotel where we stayed and the reason why we want to go here because I... More

The smoothies were great, just what you need to cool down. Went with a group of 9 and we each ordered a dish to share. All of it was wonderful, especially the coconut curry. Yummy! The chocolate croissants at breakfast were divine.

We stayed at the Sala Boutique Hotel for a full day so it was only natural that we would make sure to try the Sala Thai Restaurant before we checked out, even though we weren't hungry yet. We ordered the pad thai, chicken satay and jasmine rice. Menu items are a bit pricey, priced in USD. But the reviews were... More

I spent a night in this boutique Inn on either side of a Scuba trip, therefore having the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful German style breakfast that reminded me of the Alps AND several fantastic Thai lunches and dinners. My initial thought was to dine around, but I quickly decided to enjoy the ambiance and delightful tastes of the best... More
