Sala Thai offers excellent Thai cuisine. Their food Is delicately flavored and pretty close to the Thai food I had in top rated restaurant in Bangkok.

Food was very salty. Service was just OK - they seemed overwhelmed.

We really enjoyed Sala Thai - the service was friendly, attentive and efficient. The food was delicious - green curry was flavorful with just the right amount of heat. Great location for dinner before a show at the Beacon.

Went for lunch with a few girlfriends and we each had a different lunch special and shared them all. They were each great the Green Curry was my favorite, followed by the Basil saute. We also had the Peanut and the Ginger saute. Really fantastic meal. I have also been for dinner and for that the only downside was the noise level but isn't this everywhere?!

Great food and lovely setting. For years we wished there was a Thai restaurant in our neighborhood that had both--most really good Thai places near Lincoln Square either haven't invested in decor, or are cramped, or both. Finally we have one! They can get very busy for dinner, especially on weekends, so make sure you reserve.

We ordered the braised short-rib special in panang current sauce which was excellent! The grilled eggplant with basil (and chicken) was also very good. Medium spicy was just right -- not too tame as it is elsewhere. We've eaten in quite a few Thai restaurants in Manhattan (many on 9th Ave in Midtown) and this is definitely a level above all of those.

Extremely good food and an extensive menu. The dining room is beautifully decorated and the noise level is fine (we talk a lot, and we could hear ourselves easily). Everyone enjoyed what they had, and I think that the drinks (I don't drink) were also very good. Service was attentive and courteous, and we never felt rushed even though we saw a long line waiting as we left.

TOM GHA KAI soup was really good, and my crispy duck in curry was exquisite. Attentive service and very decent prices. A favorite option when dining before a concert.

We have tried Thai food before coming to Sala Thai and have most often enjoyed it. This restaurant's food, though, is exceptional! EVERYTHING was mouthwatering. The authenticity of the interior design is simply beautiful. There are many fine restaurants in the vicinity of the Beacon Theater but NONE better than this one and NONE more reasonably priced. We can't wait to return.

This is a great new addition to the UWS. The space is elegant and cozy with plenty of space between tables for conversation. The service is professional and warm and very welcoming. Our dishes were excellent, particularly the dumplings and pad Thai. The chicken dish was not as good as the rest but perfectly fine. Make a reservation as it gets busy and they clearly like to manage the number of diners.

I have been there several times and find the food inventive and the service very sweet. The decor is very pretty in the Thai style. The prices are fair for the quality they offer.

What a hidden gem! The food here is consistently excellent and a great value. Have eaten in or ordered in several times and never disappointed. Their cocktails are lovely (esp. the spicy vodka one) and their short ribs are heavenly. Just need to have everyone in your party present to be seated, which is typical. I prefer sitting on the bench near the wall to cut down on noise level if I want to have a conversation. The prawn and mango salad is very tasty, the special snap pea greens soup is light and warming, and the green curry is blended smoothly (but a bit soupy). All good. Very worth a visit.
