Sala Thai Restaurant Review

: Sala Thai’s food is good, though by no means outstanding, and would be worth a return trip if only for the crunchy soft shell crabs in their sweet-hot sauce. We also like the just-sweet mee krob and Pinky in the Blanket, or deep-fried shrimp-wrapped shrimp. The kitchen also does a commendable job with the Drunken Noodles, and whips up several lamb dishes, which are really not traditional Thai fare. If you are fond of Thai curries, you can get your fill, as the menu lists six different options, and includes your choice of chicken, shrimp, pork or beef. Desserts stick to such Thai classics as fried bananas and sticky rice with mango, plus an all-American treat, Key lime pie. Other locations.
