We ordered thai food so don't have a opinion on the western menu . the thai was pretty good, very nice view. Do not expect too much about the food.

“Good view from restaurant with so-so food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

I read the good reviews & thought of checking out this restaurant when I was at Ao Nang one day. We ordered the Thai food like spring roll, pad thai, etc. I do not know if I ordered the wrong dishes because they weren't as great as the other reviewers had mentioned. I think I had better Thai food elsewhere in Krabi, & the restaurant wasn't even on Tripadvisor.

“Great location, delicious food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

At the edge of Ao Nang beach there is a variety of seafood restaurants. The best way to chose one of them is by comparing the look of the lobsters in the water tanks.

And Sala Bua etc. is an excellent choice. The Belgian owner does his utmost to not only provide you with the freshest and best prepared lobsters and juicy oysters, but also makes you feel utterly welcome and well serviced.

And the sunset at Ao Nang is without any doubt one of the most romantic sceneries one can ever experience. Sala Bua, absolute tip !

“Food that won't disappoint you”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

My husband and I dined at Sala Bua 3 evenings in a row and were happy with our food and service. I wanted to try some "safe " Thai food that wouldn't be too spicy and I was completely happy with my chicken coconut soup and pad thai. My husband had seafood pasta one night and being Sicilian he said it was good :)

I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Staff is very kind and helpful. And you don't have to wait for the food long.

“average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

We had dinner here last night and were underwhelmed. The setting is quiet lovely as with all the other restaurants along the waterfront. The service was good, happy and helpful and the Italian Owner (?) was wandering around and asking if everyone was happy with their food. The prices were above average but we were more than happy to pay for good food but sadly it was not the case. The pad thai goong was gluggy and tasteless with 3 tiny shrimps and the chicken and cashew nut was full of pineapple and not at all pleasant. The som tam was nice but did not make up for the rest of the meal and sadly we will not be returning.
