What is was years ago is the 2016 sad edition of that. The decor, menu, service and poor meal will not take me back again and thank God we used our Portland Dine Around. My meal was spread so thin in the large round plate that I could immediately see that the pork scallion and ginger dish taht I ordered... More

My husband & I decided to try this place, having seen their online menu. We thought we would try the honey duck, which consisted of half a duck in a brown sauce w/honey. Once we arrived, the waitress said there was no such duck and the kitchen seemed to agree. We told her we had seen it online that day... More

Over 25 years in the same place, Sala Thai is one of Portland's oldest and most respected Thai restaurants. Always good food, cooked as you like, with happy, knowledgeable waitstaff. Lunch specials are fantastic. Take-out or dine-in.

So far I have only visited once and tried the pad thai and the crab rangoons. They were very good! I will be returning to try more items.

Sala Thai is a small restaurant located on Washington Ave in Portland. The decor is average, the service is good, and the food is consistently good. It is not among the best Thai restaurants I have dined at, but it is a really good lunch restaurant and also good for take out. Watch the 'stars' - if you order with... More

We had the crispy pad Thai and the regular shrimp and chicken pad Thai. The regular pad Thai was much better than the crunchy. In fact we loved the regular pad Thai. Only complaint about the food was that there was not enough chicken and shrimp. I counted 3 tiny shrimp and a small amount of chicken

We live down the street from this restaurant and we LOVE the lunch buffet and frequent it often. It's a great deal for the amount of food you get. My kids are picky eaters but they've always loved this food even in their elementary school years. It doesn't look great from the outside so I don't think we would have... More

Sorry sala, but this was the first and last time I am going there. The food was amazing, but unfortunately, the service was horrible. There was only one waitress for eight tables. They said the rice would take fifteen minutes and arrived thirty five minutes later. Took ten minutes to get water and another five to take our order. It... More
