anytime I am coming to Male, this is the restaurant I always visit. Great Thai Food, and my favorite soup TomKaGai ( portions are sometimes to big to finish even a soup ) . Generally the restaurant is owned and operated by very friendly guy ( I think he is german or Dutch ). Part of the property there is... More

I had one of the best pad thai's I've ever had in my life in this restaurant. I would give it a 5 stars, but the crab dish my wife had(the name slips my mind), she said wasn't up to par with the reputation. Hence the 4 stars. However, she also agreed with me that pad thai was delicious.

Being a hardcore Thai addict, I look for Thai food the moment I land in any city. While researching about Maldives one of the main highlights I came across Male City was about Sala Thai. Infact I had come across Sala Thai while looking for a hotel in the city, since the rooms were all booked out, the hotel was... More

I have dined many times over the years at Sala Thai, and sadly have not been back for 4 years until recently. I live in Bangkok, so obviously eat thai food daily. That being said, the first thing I wanted upon arrival to the Maldives was Sala Thai. It is simply better then all the thai food I eat in... More

I saw how highly rated Sala Thai was, so I tracked it down for lunch. It wasn't easy to find- the mapped location is slightly off and the sign is small. When I found it, a waiter standing outside asked me to come in and led me straight to a table. Normally I avoid places that use that tactic, but... More

After eating some less than wonderful food at the Conrad, we were in need of something tasty. What a fantastic choice this was!! Food prices were high, but they're high everywhere in the Maldives, so it's really not an issue to this restaurant specifically. What a delight! Each dish could easily hold up to a good Thai restaurant anywhere else... More
