We spent almost a week in Salou eating from similar menus in the usual restaurants you find in the Spanish holiday hotspots; dodgy pictures of the food at the door and annoying reps on the street trying to coax you in.
We turned to TripAdvisor to look for Thai restaurants in the area and really struck gold when we discovered Thai Salou.
The menu wad simple but had enough choice to satisfy our varied tastes.
The mixed platter we had to begin allowed us to taste most of the options on the starter menu and we couldn't fault any of them, the satay dipping sauce that accompanied it was to die for.
We ordered four mains and shared them, the Massuman curry was particularly good as was the garlic rice. But as with the starter it was hard to fault any of the dishes. They were all bursting with flavour as you would expect from Thai cuisine.
We found the price very reasonable; a starter platter for four, four mains, four sides, two children's meals, a bottle of wine and four beers came to €120.
Our waiter was extremely helpful, his English was very good and he gave us great advice on what to order depending on our taste. They weren't particularly slow preparing the food but I wouldn't say they were fast either, which is nothing to complain about really.
It is slightly off the main thoroughfare and it wasn't busy for peak time on a Saturday evening, which is a shame for the owner because this place should be packed out. For anyone who appreciates quality Thai food or just wants a change from what all the usual restaurants have to offer, I highly recommend this hidden gem!

Upon visiting Salou, the one thing you notice is that there are plenty of restaurants to go to but all offering the same food.

It was such a pleasure to stumble across this hidden gem Thai Salou, it offers authentic Thai food and it's so much nicer than pizza, burgers, kebabs etc.

If this restaurant was on the promenade it would be busy but it's nice that it's not on the busy promenade.

The food ordering was a bit quirky to say the least, you order your drinks, the each persons orders a starters and then each person orders their mains, rather than each person orders everything and then on to the next person.

We visited twice so I had the vegetable spring rolls and chicken satay both lovely and I had a Thai green curry lovely, the steamed rice was a little clumped together but I would recommend the garlic fried rice, tastes lovely. Portion sizes are big so go with an empty stomach.

My only dislike was that we were asked to keep the cutlery that we had used for our starter to use again for our main, that's a big no, always give the customer clean cutlery but otherwise it was a gem of a restaurant.

We found this restaurant by chance and one of our most enjoyable meals in salou there. The restaurant is nicely decorated, the food was fresh and delicious, reasonably priced and very helpful and friendly service. We went twice in a week and would highly recommend
