Description: Located in the 5 star Hyatt Regency Sharm El Sheikh . The resort's specialty restaurant, entirely hand-carved in Egypt and Italy and modeled on a traditional Thai garden house (hence the name "Sala"). The lobby entry draws the guest through massive carved doors into a quaint bar. Its window overlooking the bay and a softly lit cove ceiling are simple but characterful. The restaurant itself is breathtaking: large windows overlook the Red Sea and lead to a magnificent two-level terrace; a dramatic beamed ceiling and walls are intricately carved with nature scenes; greenery is oriental in style and sits in handmade ceramic planters; seats have comfortable armrests and brightly coloured cushions; it all creates an Eastern style sensuality that permeates every inch of this alluring restaurant. A brass and raised bronze applique forms the backdrop of the wooden canopied theatre kitchen. As inside seating is on two levels, guests may gaze upon the chefs' performances while breathing in the heady scents of lemongrass and ginger. Theatrical lighting makes this part of the room the centre of the action. Seating up to 10 guests around a traditional round table, a private dining room is a temple of outstanding design, offering up truly remarkable double views of the Gardens Bay.

“Best Thai for sure in Sharm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

This is fantastic. We were lucky enough to be staying at The Hyatt which is amazing and visited Sala Thai. The service is excellent like all Hyatt service and the food was easily the best Thai we've had in Sharm and back in UK, really good. It's cooked fresh in front of you by Thai chefs and it was a pleasure eating there, highly recommended.

“Surprisingly Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

This Restaurant is located in Hyatt Hotel so if you are staying there, you cannot and should not miss it. We took two appetizers and two main dish and shared all and it was plenty to get all the zest, spice and after flavours of Thai cooking. Even if you have traveled to Thailand many times like us, you will welcome the balanced and deep taste of Thai kitchen. Chicken Lemongrass with chilli dressing was my favourite.
In terms of service, you will be well taken care off for the duration of the dinner, so you decide if this is a good thing or bad thing :)

“Fantastic Thai food...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

I my point of view, all traditional hotel food taste all the same..like sticking your tongue out the window..sorry. Sala Thai makes honestly Thai food with lots of love added to the food. Spicy beef salad, dishes with noodles and traditional thai desserts. The kitchen is in the restaurant so you can enjoy the preparation of you food. Service is good, and prices are very fair..go go go!!

“A great simple Thai restaurant with great red sea views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

Atmosphere: on of the best places I have ever dined into. The view was astounding with the near full moon lighting the bay -- simply wow.
Food: food was ok, but I can very safely say that I have had better thai. Shrimps didnt feel fresh, nor the duck. Perhaps it has to do with the remotness of sharm...
Staff: very helpful and friendly. Service was quick and I could tell that there was an effort to make sure we were happy. Even the chef, who was a thai lady, came to our table to make sure the food was ok.
Would recommend for the overall experience, but do not expect a fine dining quality food.

“A real thai restaurant in the dessert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

We did sleep in the Hyatt and we were surprised to see a Thai restaurant here.The decoration is all wood as in Thailand restaurants.The open kitchen gives a very clean and well organized impression.The Lady chef masters all very well. The food.......really authentic Thai. lovely You decide yourself how spicy you would like to eat.For children she makes great dishes as well. The excelent view on the resort and sea make these dinners unique. Our compliments!! By the way the prices were very attractive and the nice collection of wines and beers did bring heaven on earth.
