Sala Thai Restaurant

Thai Restaurant in Lamai Beach

Sala Thai Restaurant is among the top restaurants located by the side of the main road through the middle of Lamai. Serving an impressive selection of good-quality Thai cuisine at affordable prices, it is a big hit with visitors to Koh Samui and is even quite popular with the locals.

Located just a little further along Haad Lamai Road from the town’s night plaza, the restaurant is in a charming, traditionally Thai-style building. Having no walls, diners can enjoy the mild evening air with their dinner. The table settings and surroundings give the impression of quite a high-class establishment while the low prices keep the place busy, creating a friendly atmosphere which the polite and helpful staff further enhance.

The fresh seafood is on display, packed in ice by the entrance. Prices at Sala Thai Restaurant are comparable to those of the other restaurants along the same street, starting at 55 baht per 100g for sea bass and red snapper and going up to 220 baht per 100g for lobster. The a la carte menu features a limited selection of western and international dishes, but the majority (and best) of the choices are the Thai dishes. These include common favourites like fried rice (140 baht), som tam (140 baht), tom yam soup (160 baht), green curry (200 baht) and so on.

We tried the red curry with duck (200 baht), which is listed among the specials. It featured tender meat and a flavourful sauce, making for a generally delightful meal. This can be complimented by an unusually extensive wine list with labels from France, Italy, Chile, New Zealand and Germany. There is also quite an impressive choice of spirits, liqueurs and cocktails available, with prices starting at about 140 baht.

Many of the restaurants along the central stretch of Haad Lamai Road have a heavy focus towards the tourist market, making them arguably “less Thai”. The food at Sala Thai Restaurant, however, is as traditional as its setting, which is what makes it probably the best of the bunch.
