Great Thai Buffet

Great Thai buffet, small and quaint in an old house. Not a whole lot to choose from but plenty to choose from including Pad Thai and a curry dish. Never felt like because it was a buffet the quality was comprised. Really warm and friendly people.

The food here is actually pretty good and we've eaten in several times. It's old and dated but the food is decent. However, after two completely wrong takeout orders in a row I am DONE with this place. We live 20 minutes away and it's not worth going back to get the correct order. The first time the order was...

Some of the best Thai I have tried yet. Also, service was so friendly and kind. Love the homey feeling, really feels like they're family serving a great meal.. I have only gone for lunch, which is the buffet, and everything I tried was delicious!

This is definitely not the best Thai food on the planet but I'm still grateful it is nearby and the price is certainly good. I like the curries on the buffet but it does seem to me to be more Chinese at times than Thai but what do I know?

Had lunch with my boss Friday, Dec 19th 2014. We had the buffet. It was his treat, idea, and I had no clue this place existed. Food was amazing for me personally as well as for my boss (he has very particular tastes and visits frequently). Anyway, stuffed to the gills on great tasting thai food, we waddled to the... More

Ordered delivery from Sala Thai twice through MenuExpress delivery service in the last week due to being in the middle of a move. Both times the tofu curry I ordered was chicken. Ugh. MenuExpress was great about giving me a credit towards the order after the first mix-up, which is why I ordered again. It's a shame because the curry... More

This is a so-so Thai restaurant, it used to be much much better. We have come here consistently over the past five years and just recently the management or ownership must have changed.

If you want to try Thai food for the first time, this is the place for you. They offer a lunch buffet for only $7.95. It changes everyday, and usually includes 5 entrée choices, one or two soups, a salad, and at least two appetizers. If you are lucky you may even get a dessert. If you want to try... More

Enjoy the authentic menu offerings. I haven't dined in, but take out is amazingly good. Tom Yum soup is best in town.
