“Many many good meals at this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2011

I have eaten at Sala Thai many many times over the last three years. The food is always fresh and delicious. When you approach the place, you'll notice a small parking lot shared with a mexican place next door. The lot is dirt and often muddy in the winter and spring. For some reason the owner parks right next to the door. It seems they should move their car to the back of the lot, but hey, it is there place i guess. The restaurant is small with approximately 10 tables, decorated cheaply with kitschy Thia themed items. There is usually only one server on shift at any given time. The menu covers the staples of Thai cuisine from soups to noodles to pan fried dishes. The ubiquitous Pad Thai here is as good as any I have ever had. The "Spicy Old Man" is also always a hit. They have a fried chicken dish served in a pineapple shell that is also very good, but the name escapes me right now. They move fairly quickly at lunch time, but the place is small so there is often a wait for lunch. The place is located near the Air Force base and stays fairly busy feeding Airmen at lunch time. The service at the evening meal tends to be a slower for some reason.

“Best Thai food around. Red chicken curry...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2010 via mobile

Best Thai food around. Red chicken curry is addicting. A little wait, but everything is cooked fresh.

“"Not as good as Zip" Your Kidding Right?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2010

I noticed the Sala Thai ranked 5th behind Zips in Airway Height. That prompted me to write my review.

This place rocks. Each meal is prepared fresh so don't be in a hurry but I promise you the food is worth the wait. Try the Spicy Noodles
