very good

Good spicy Thai food. Place was deserted, which was kind of odd. Very nice staff. I enjoyed it and would go again.

Not bad, but the favors just felt weak. Not at all hot and spicy as advertised. However, service was very quick. Food was out in a matter of minutes.

I was was expecting to be blow away . I have been hearing about the great food is in Bethesda. I guess I just didn't find them . The Food at Sala Thai was just ok. If you are looking for Thai look else where first. Nothing special just ok

The spring rolls were very good - not at all greasy. Our entrees were pretty mediocre though - drunken noodles and a tofu dish that were not very interesting.

food was average. they had a dish i liked and asked for it w/o meat and extra vegetable s, which to them i guess meant give him lots of cabbage and they charged me a premium price for it as if it had meat in it. the portion was very small especially considering the price they charged.

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.
