We had the pleasure of having a lovely meal at Sala Thai and we are happy to say that this restaurant knows how love is served on a plate. Amazing food, very warm and welcoming staff. Mr. Thomas and Ms. Rose were the sweetest hosts...and I just could not geto ver the fact that they always remember me when I visit the restaurant every single time. Thank you for keeping Thai traditions and flavors alive in your restaurant. Definitely coming back.More

We stumbled across this amazing restaurant by accident after a frustrating morning at the Indian consulate. Thank you so much Sala Thai, you’ve restored my faith in hospitality within this region and made our day much better. Amazing food, amazing service and amazing hygiene (never...seen glass so clean). Yo those complaining about price, all I can say is “you get what you pay for……excellence”More

We had come for dinner.. The soup we ordered was excellent and they give a lot of soup more than enough for both so don't order for 2. The other food was average, and as the owner has explained the food is pricey because of...the ingredients etc.. I was very disappointed as I was charged 4 USD + GST and Service charge ($4.88) for a 750ml of bottled water which I was forced to buy inspite of me asking for regular water.. i dunno how such a good restaurant can refuse customers regular drinking water and say they have only bottled water.. So customers pls carry water with you when u visit here.. Coz no one likes to pay close to 5$ for a bottle of water.. 1.5ltr bottled water is available for 6 MVR in any shop..More

We are from nyc and been to Thailand many times. I can say this place is A M A Z I N G!! We had a vegetable soup with glass noodles that I could eat every evening if they were in my city. The pad...Thai has a great flavor with the perfect mild spice. It was such a nice air conditioned and very clean place. The service was great. I cannot recommend enough. We just left and already wanting to go back tonightMore

A very good and pleasant service and a great Thai food. It was a perfect end to our 10 days vacation in the Maldives. We’ll return to Sala Thai next time in Male.

A Thai oasis in the heart of Male. The ambiance of this family run restaurant simply complements the top-quality food that we enjoyed. We met the owner and his wife who told us that all of the Thai spices and ingredients come directly from Thailand....The expense was worth it. Everything from appetizers to dessert was a flavorful experience. If we were staying longer, would have definitely eaten here again.More

Without a doubt some of the best Thai Food around. A combination of great service and tasty food made the experience wonderful. Also, if you love spicey Thai dishes then you will love the Sala Thai restaurant. I would recommend the green curry, seafood salad...and Tom Yom soup! For dessert, sticky rice mango and coconut ice cream were out of this world.More

Give this place another go and decided to go for something basic…which is Pad Krapao Nua Sub Kaidao Rad Khao = Minced beef basil with fried egg and rice!! And yes!! Its basic and its not disappointing…its like home!! I came to know that the...owner live in Thailand in the province close to Cambodia before…no wonder the writing of the restaurant logo and the menu writing are not really like Thai 😅 now i know why Anyhow, the chef are Thai! So yes taste almost like eating at home in Bangkok!More
