I have visited Sala Thong on several occasions and always been greeted with a smile. Although tight for space the restaurant seems to have a cosy, intimate feel to it. The whole place is clean, tidy and welcoming. The food is glorious, fresh and beautifully...More

We went here on a Sunday night for a quick meal and were very happy with the meal. The food was interesting and really tasty, and fairly priced - we had a decent meal for 2 for about £30 excluding drinks. Even though we chose...More

I visited on a Saturday lunch-time for a light lunch and ordered a chicken and vegetable stir-fry, with ginger and garlic. This arrived very promptly and was delicious. The chicken was tender and the eight different vegetables were delightfully al dente. The stir-fry liquor was...More

My Thai friend suggested me to this place. I like spicy food. I recommend the basic one "Fried pork with basil leaves with rice"

My wife and I really enjoyed everything about this restaurant. Great food, service and with my wife's intolerance of onions, a very obliging and helpful approach to this issue from the staff. We would certainly eat here again - great little Thai restaurant.

I regularly come to Sala Thong. The food is decent and at an okay price point. The curries are alright, and I would recommend the prawn paste stir-fry dish, as well as the egg fried rice and pineapple fried rice. The coconut cream dessert is...More

The food was decent, but we had a female server who was by far one of the rudest people I've encountered. She added tip on without asking, was blatantly rude whenever we asked any questions, and refused to accommodate any of our requests. Will not...More

Very good restaurant. Relaxed atmosphere, nice staff, great food & value for money. It's the kind of place where I think everything on the menu is probably good but I plumped for the red curry with chicken, cherry tomatoes & bamboo shoots with sticky rice...More
