My friend and I had curries...she had the green, and mine was with coconut. Both were very tasty and had a little bit of heat but it wasn't so hot that we could not eat it. The curries had a lot of flavor and the chicken was very tender. I would go back. Service was on spot. They didn't have... More

Had the coconut sweet sour soup with chicken and mushrooms and shrimp pad Thai at lunchtime. Very generous portions. The chicken in the soup was a little tough but appeared to be all white meat. The pad Thai was excellent. Walked in and say down immediately. Fast wait staff. Window seats are fun for people watching

Stopped in here for dinner, it is very appealing with the neon lights and corner street location. I had the Tom Kah and Drunken Noodle. Noodle lacked salt but still was good.

Chose this due to the location between hotel and client for a quick business lunch. Found the food to be good and service was excellent.

The food was ok, Thom Yum soup had a chili oil that caught in our throats. The shrimp with cellophane noodles was really good, but came with an awful sauce, luckily on the side. the veggie Pad Thai was great. There is live music here. Jazz the night we were there. Was ok, not too loud. Not much ambience.

We've been to Sala Thai several times in the past year. As always, the food was excellent (variety, taste, pricing) and the service was great. However, the timing of the food delivery was the worst that we've ever experienced anywhere. We were a party of three and while two of us got their appetizers AND entrees, the third person just...

Wonderful dinner after a long day. The service was excellent and very attentive. The menu choices and prices were great making it easy to order and share dishes. Would definitely return. Try the steam dumplings and green vegetable rolls.

Check out their Groupon offer when in the area. Solid 3-star location with easygoing friendly folks. We've had our fair share of their menu options for years. From past work lunches to random casual dinners, their kitchen is pretty steady. Their dishes tend to be on the sweeter side though. But I guess that's their cooking style. For those who... More

It was late and the bar we had intended to have a drink at was a bust so we headed back for the hotel. But I was hungry! We passed by Sala Thai and at first dismissed it because it looked too sterile from the outside. But needs must and so my wife and I went in. After all, we... More
