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.

This is the best restaurant in Sharm by far. The Thai husband and wife chefs are just fantastic! Seriously, this is better than Patara in London! We are staying in the Four Seasons were there are ample dining choices, but this place blows them all away. Authentic high end Thai cooking in an amazing setting with excellent service. And all at a reasonable price. Really spot on. You must go!

Gamal was fabulous and most attentive - great food and super service. The Chef comes out and meets the guests personally and is very keen to receive any feedback. The view of the resort from the balcony is the perfect setting to enjoy a wonderful authentic thai dinner.

The Sala Thai Restaurant in the Hyatt Regency is worth a visit, lovely ambience, beautiful views over the bay and superb authentic Thai food. The set menus are particularly good value and the service is outstanding. Our waiter Islam provided superb warm and personal service that helped the evening to be even more enjoyable.

In my opinion this is not just a good restaurant it's an excellent restaurant. I rate it highly for service, setting, food and drink and it's one of my all time favourite restaurants. I've recommended it to everyone I know who's going to Sharm. I was brought here by a mate who ordered for us and we were blown away by the quality and flavor of the food. We do the same any time we're with friends in Sharm and they are never disappointed. A table out on the terrace overlooking the moon with unparalleled service in any other place in sharm. Love the grapefruit salad, thai beef salad, yellow curry and beef curry. Go here and enjoy!!!

The Hyatt's signature restaurant in Sharm offers Thai cooking from north east Thailand that would not be out of place in any first rate Thai in London, Bangkok or Sydney. The bonus is the open kitchen and the opportunity to watch the artistry of the kitchen at work. Flavours are finely balanced and dishes and accompaniments compliment each other well. This really is a treat. It's a little more expensive than most Sharm establishments and worth every penny. The freshness of the ingredients stands out. Greatly enjoyed my hot hot hot green curry. The Hyatt provides a pleasant and comfortable environment. Have been coming here for ten years and it remains a treat. Book in advance in higher season.
