Nothing fancy, dirty table, very friendly waiter. We ordered Massaman curry with chicken (85 rand), a green vegetable curry (75) and rice (19). The food came after only a few minutes and the bowels were big. The curries, hm. More like soups, very very thin. The massaman had nothing on common with any massaman I've ever had. Sweet potatoes instead... More

Had a very tasty meal! Hot is a good choice if you love spicy but don't want to catch on fire. Free WiFi!

We are Thai fans- the food, the people. Went to Yindees last night and it was beyond average. Tonight we tried Salathai and it was excellent! Authentic Thai cuisine, so much flavours and great service by Jesse. This is my new best Thai restaurant in Cape Town. Go!

My husband and i went on a search for this restaurant. We actually passed by without noticing it at all! Eventually we phoned them and were redirected back to it. It is a small, simple restaurant. To be honest, I was unsure that it would deliver a good Thai meal. We ordered a duck green curry with rice and the... More

This is our all time favourite Thai restaurant! I lived in Thailand for a year to teach and this is the closest I've come to getting authentic Thai food in Cape Town! We go here at least once a week! Their spicy basil (gai grapouw) is my all time favourite, Laap moo is also a winner if feel like something... More

Very pleasant meal had with friends. Food was freshly prepared and the Phad Thai was very good. Nice friendly service. Worth a visit for a casual bite.

I ordered the Thai Red Chilli paste chicken dish which was absolutely delicious. My boyfriend had the Phad Thai which he couldn't stop raving about. I tried some of it too and had to agree that it's the best one I've ever had & I've been to Thailand a number of times. David our waiter was excellent too. Very attentive... More

Delighted to have been able to return almost exactly a year since our last visit. This time we were only in Cape Town for 2 days and notwithstanding range of so many other dining options made a decision to return here as we had enjoyed the establishment so much last time. Very pleased that the freshly prepared quality, range of... More

Popped in unannounced and were seated with great welcome. The service is fast, friendly, efficient and the food tastefully Thai. We will definitely be back for more of this.

Thank Mujaji
