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.

Recently visited the Sala Thai restaurant in Covington. Having just joined Weight Watchers, I was pleasantly surprised at the delicious choices that were available to those trying to eat within the points guidelines. The Tom Yum chicken soup was spicy and flavorful. The chicken satay was a generous portion for an appetizer served with two dipping sauces and the presentation... More

The owners and staff aim to please...has a great buffet everyday...so yummy and so reasonable. The screened in porch is always my favorite place to sit. It is just a minute away from the Southern Hotel!

My son & his wife ate there recently & enjoyed the freshness of the food. There was even a porch area on the side where they could sit to eat. A good value.
