This is a popular lunch spot -right in the Oyster Bay shopping area and close to the beach. I tried the Pad Thai with tamarind, which was very good, with particularly large prawns! Good fresh juices also. Service was quick, which is what you need at lunchtime.

Sala Thai has a mix of indoor and outdoor seating, excellent service, and a broad menu. Our waitress was very helpful in choosing dishes to share, including some outstanding soup. Most dishes were fairly mild by Thai standards, but the flavors were great. I'll definitely be returning the next time I'm in Dar.

This restaurant has delicious Thai dishes served in a beautiful, cute garden in the heart of the peninsula. The waiters are great at serving. The food is delicious. I recommend the soups and papaya salad. Freshly squeezed juices are yummy, too.

limited choice on menu. Service ok, always seems quiet. Nice setting. Very expensive! Far better places to go in Dar for oriental food.

With the restaurant recently refurbished, the waiting staff welcomed us enthusiastically. However, however much they tried, the food could not live up to it. Rice noodles were very poor, chicken soup had chicken crumbles instead of chicken, extremely basic food. The only positive note was the steamed fish we ordered which was really the only dish resembling Thai food. The... More

Visited with four of my colleagues for dinner. We had a total of 8 entrees, 2 appetizers, 2 soups, 2 bottles of wine and rice and the bill came to 320,000 TZS total ($35 USD per person). All of the dishes were very good. Service was friendly and weather was perfect for outdoor eating. They also have indoor seating available.... More

Food and service more than allright. Price/quality was oké. The best thing is to ask for housemade food. let you surpise yourself

Good food, probably expensive by local standards, but very tasty - nice outdoor setting. Had the green papaya salad (yum).
