This restaurant was a little pricy & did not provide the complimentary soup and spring rolls that I am accustomed to in Thai restaurants. However, the service was very good, the food was also vey good & sat very well although the entre was not as spicy as most Thai entre's tend to be. We enjoyed the nice little jazz... More

My daughter and I were looking for a place to get a lighter bite to eat. We came across Sala Thai and were very impressed with the Saturday night jazz band that performed in such a small cozy place! I had Chicken Pineapple, which was amazing! Chicken, ginger and pineapple served in a light brown sauce inside the pineapple -... More

We were staying at the Doubletree for a conference and grabbed lunch at Sala Thai. The service was quick and friendly. We were in and out in an hour. The food was tasty but nothing super special. They have a nice lunch special--entree and either soup or spring roll for $12.99. Would definitely eat here again, but not for a... More

I have never had such fresh calamari! The rings were thick and coated in the lightest panko breading. I thought they'd be tough, but they were light, tender, and delicious and served with a sweet chile sauce. My entre was the pad kee mao. Again, fresh noodles, vegetables, and light application of sauce. The only thing I can ding them... More

I was staying at the nearby Doubletree and stopped here for some takeout. Do note: the menu on their website is not complete. However, the red curry duck I got was tasty and well priced and was cooked fast. My only complaint was they didn't give me a fork with my takeout.

Always a bit dubious with Thai restaurants as being a vegetarian I don't want fish sauce in my meals. I asked about this and they said no fish sauce in the veggie meals, in which case there is a very good range of veggie dishes. I chose Panang Tofu, which, slightly confusingly, in the menu is stated to be both... More

I really enjoyed the food here and it was pretty authentic Thai! Will go back. Service was good. Didn't love the look of the restaurant.

If you're looking for a quick and easy bite to eat this is for you. Nothing fancy at all, so I would not recommend for a fancy date. The food is good and the staff are all very pleasant, service was fast. Drunken noodles were tasty but not very spicy and the tofu and veggies was on the small portion... More

The papaya salad is one of the best things on the menu, although the shrimp was left out of a carry out order. Accuracy is better when you dine in. The staff is friendly and live music is available on weekends.

This is a solid Thai place, pretty much standard stuff. Hard to assess Thai places in one visit. There were three of us and we all had satisfactory meals. I had a noodle dish and it was very good. I also had soup there and it was excellent, so overall, a satisfactory experience but not what I would call extraordinary.... More
