“Best Thai in Cape Town...by far...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

By far the best Thai experience in Cape Town. After numerous visits to Thailand, its a real treat to be at home and to find a GREAT Thai restaurant on our doorstep that makes Thai food the authentic way!!

“Authentic Thai, Thai owner, Thai chef, Thai food - excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

The food is superb, the staff really friendly and the price excellent value for money.

This place is so good that I eat here at least once a week and sometimes 4 times a week.

In the last month the menu and decor has been refreshed whilst the quality of food and service has remained high.

Each dish is prepared fresh to order so order a pot of green tea to whet your appetite whilst the chef prepares your meal right in front of you.

“Definitely one of the best Thai Restaurants in Cape Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2012

We tested about six Thai restaurants in Cape Town so far, this is by far the best. I lived in Thailand for a while and well - you only get Bangkok street food in Bangkok - but this place here makes authentic Thai Food and I love it ... and it is just around the
corner to Seapoint where we live!

Been at Salathai already four times and the quality of the food was always excellent. Looking forward to go there at least once or twice a week :)

It is a small place and the kitchen is right next to the seating, exact the way I like it. (Our favourite so far .. the Seafood Salad and the Spicy Chicken with Cashew Nuts. )
