Authentic Thai food

based on a balance between different fundamental taste senses


Fresh Herbs and Spices

Our Thai chef prepares his dishes using fresh herbs and spices. He grows most of them in our own garden to bring out the natural flavours of your food and achieve balance between spicy, sour, sweet, salty, and bitter. Our aim is to excite your tastebuds!

Our Restaurant

Situated on Coral Bay Avenue just a short distance from Paphos, Sala Thai is a traditional Thai food restaurant with a relaxing atmosphere. We invite you to visit our restaurant and be transported to Thailand. We hope you enjoy the hospitality of Sala Thai and experience all we have to offer.

About Sala Thai

A sala (Thai: ศาลา Thai pronunciation: [sǎːlaː]; Khmer: សាលា Khmer pronunciation: [saːliːə]), also known as a sala Thai, is an open pavilion, used as a meeting place and to protect people from sun and rain.

Sala Thai is really “a place of rest” where travelers can relax, quench their thirst and enjoy good food and that is what our team strives to do!

Customer Reviews

We love what we do. Check out what our customers are saying:

  • The chefs, apparently, were all brought in from Bangkok, no poaching from local competitors. I would be astonished if this was not recognised as the best Thai restaurant on the whole island by the time they are fully bedded in, next summer.

  • Exquisite Assault on the Tastebuds. Friendly attentive staff who knew what accompaniments would enhance the main meal well. Well worth a visit.

    moisymouse (Belgrade, Serbia)
  • I would recommend an immediate visit to SalaThai as this food not only offers fire but also sour and salt, and smoke, and sweetness, and those from the school of ‘I don’t want anything too spicy’ are also well catered for yet do not miss out on marvelous flavours.
