Ate here many times throughout my stay at Impiana. The staff was very attentive, and the general manager (?I think?) was very nice - he always had some great travel advice. The chef even made chicken rice soup like mother used to make when I wasn't feeling well one of the days. Also, the view of the ocean is gorgeous.... More

This is a gem among all the party places along Patong Beach. With a beach front location, you sit outside listening to the waves, while enjoying food and drinks. They serve a mix of local and Western food, all tasty and well prepared. We came with a big group, and they catered well for that. I will gladly come again.

So beautiful being able to eat on the beach listening to the sea. Excellent service. Food and dessert worth all the Baht. Very romantic but also child friendly. I went at night. They have a hotel as well as a spa available

Whats better than eating great food on the waterfront in Patong. We ended up in this restaurant as a fall back position as our hotel had sent us somewhere that was no where near up to scratch for a romantic date with my new wife. While the food was amazing in particular the salmon entree (we went back for it... More

Sala Bua is in a beautiful location - right on the beach. It's not as busy as I would have expected, but we did go in off peak times. The service was excellent, but the food was outstanding!

We found this little piece of paradise while desperately searching for a place to have a very late brunch. It feels like a piece of paradise as its so clean and peaceful. We walked into so many places that morning that smelled foul and didn't have great views of Patong beach. The food was incredible, granted they took a tad... More

Recently came here for dinner, missed the sunset however the live band's soothing music gave so much warmth and cosy feeling. Food was so delicious, we were all so full and enjoyed the music very much. Service was good too! Toilet was clean and nice. A very home-ly dining place.

Thanks, Chef. Love your grilled crab lobster, mussels, prawns and calamari w garlic butter sauce! The first dish that runs out fastest: roast pork with crispy skins and juicy meat! Get your hands on those before they run out! We had the Friday Seafood Dinner Buffet
