We tried a few dishes .. Spicy prawns, chicken in green curry, ostrich in red curry, beef in spicy basil.. All dishes were quite good. The chef was able to prepare a vegetarian and a nice talapia fish in basil sauce for my wife. Will go there again.

All Thai vary throughout Europe and we were impressed by this one as the menu included Kangaroo and Ostrich neither of which we had come across on Thai menus before. Lychee wine also never seen and enjoyed the new experiences. Small and very friendly will look forward to our next trip to Belgium so we can head back for more.... More

Friendly, good service. Tasty and healthy food cooked in an open kitchen at one end of the restaurant. We enjoyed Belgian food elsewhere in Ghent but the Sala Thai provide a lighter alternative for an evening meal, and the Thai curries seemed to be pretty genuine. Relaxed atmosphere, nice table at the window.

A mixed bag. Our starters were both great (thai soup and thai noodle salad) but things went downhill. My husband had the red duck curry which looked like a normal thai curry but was surprisingly bland. I had the chicken red curry which had a very strange texture as if the coconut milk had split. There were also no veg... More

I got some experience with real Thai food and I can say: get it here for the real stuff! We were amazed by the authenticity and our dishes actually being spicy for once (not easy in Belgium). Gets a highly recommended from me. Good value for money.

After our marriage day, we went to Sala Thai with friends, 10 people in total. We did not made any reservations, but that did not matter. We were very welcome! Service is good, the restaurant is typical Thai and warm.. our dishes are prepared freshly and therefor takes a while before served. As we all took different meals, I cannot... More

The food is really good. My friend had the duck red curry, of which I only heard good thing. I had the spicy squid, which was really good and just the right amount of spicy. The staff was friendly. They were a bit on the slow side, but that was only because I was in a bit of a hurry.... More

The place is shabby and the staff never seem happy to see people coming in. The soup I had was nice and spicy, i recommend it. I had red curry tofu which was not better than ok. All in all it's worth a visit for some Thai food that's well priced. If you want a nice evening out with good... More

The food wasn't bad, neither great. The restaurant was packed, smelled musty and was cold! Friendly service but too busy to allow a more personable approach. Not planning to return any time soon.

We had a Great experience in this restaurant. I live a couple of years in Thailand so i know how real thai food should taste, and here i can say it does taste like it should. Restaurant is pretty small, but Great atmosphere, we had a mixed table, all was Great.
