“Wonderful and authentic Thai food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

The food is delicious - spicy (you tell them how spicy you want it) and flavorful. There is a good variety of soups, meat and fish dishes, and vegetable dishes - perfect for a mixed group of vegetarians and meat lovers. The curry chicken really stood out and was better than most curry dishes that I've tried at other places - lighter and creamier. The only problem is that they are so good and popular that they are usually very busy.

“Best Thai Restaurant in AZ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Having been to Thailand four times, I can say that Sala Thai is the most authentic Thai cuisine in the valley. This is a family run restaurant with the entire family where the entire family participates as cooks and servers. One of my favorite dishes is the Pa Nang Curry. But everything on the menu is fantastic. Did I mention that you can bring your own wine to enjoy with your meal? Unless you've been to Sala Thai, you don't know what you are missing.

“As Authentic as You Can Get!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

I've spent time in Thailand, and this restaurant does not compromise or try to Americanize their fare. Always wonderful and BYOB without a corkage.

“Above Average Thai Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We had the duck special and it was prepared better than we were expecting it to be. We also had the spicy pumpkin basil with ground chicken. The chicken was moist and flavorful and was more like chopped white meat chicken. We thought the number four out of five spice level was just right. To me this isn't the best variation of spicy pumpkin basil that I had but it was above average compared to other places I tried. I am happy when the protein is cooked nice and the sauce taste good.

The decor is very whimsy and or tacky. They also sell novelty hugging salt and pepper shakers for $3.00 each.
