Very average

Nothing offensive, nor nothing spectacular about the food, service, or ambiance. Just very average Thai food restaurant. The Larb-gai had a nice spice to it, but was not very god overall.

Dined on my own. Started with Thai Beef salad. This had no resemblance to salads I've eaten in Thailand. No dressing; instead over cooked beef strips laid on top of lettuce served with a dip. Disappointing. Next I tried Laab Gai. This is a Thai favourite of mine. Sadly This lacked balance. It should be fragrant, sour, spicy, salty. This... More

We ended up at Sala Thai more or less by default after finding a nearby Tex-Mex establishment stuffed to the gills. The place was only lightly filled, and almost too quiet. But I needed dinner before a rehearsal and the menu looked decent; so we stayed. The three dishes we ordered (a papaya salad; wild pork; and a sort of... More

Weekday Lunch for four. My Panang chicken was very good; my wife's pork only average. Service okay. Menu is large, with luncheon special that would have been a good deal if you could make minor substitutions (e.g., lemonade instead of soda), but they won't budge on the "no substitutions" policy.

Friendly restaurant with good food. I had a pad thai which was very good. The entertainment - a singer with backup - was excellent albeit a little unexpected in a thai restaurant. Easy, reasonable prices.

I ordered the chef-recommended item. The portion was large. So, I couldn't finish it. The food was delicious. The atmosphere was ordinary.

Went with a group of 8 people. Everyone got different dishes and everyone left very happy. Portions were good sized but I think we all wanted to eat more because it tasted so good. Nice ambiance and good service.

I was disappointed with the brown curry, which was mostly potatoes and (I think) eggplant. Very average. Portion size was small; I ate it all and was still hungry so I ordered an appetizer- wings stuffed with crab -- after dinner. The appetizer sounded good, but turned out to be deep-fried, which I didn't want. There are lots of restaurants... More

Yummy food and very authentic. Price was extremely reasonable and the Jazz band gave the restaurant an amazing atmosphere.

We had been to this place about 2 years ago when we had a good experience. Then just past 6 months ago, a Groupon/Living Social deal came by which we bought. We were at the restaurant about 10 days ago. The soup was OK, but when the entree came, it had a long hair in it. I showed it to... More
