Welcome to Sala Thai Restaurant
Thai food represents an amalgam of Indian, Chinese, and Malaysian influence, yet has a characteristic and distinctive Thai flavor and style.
Thailand with its tropical climate, rich agricultures, bountiful rivers, and seaside proximity, produces a tremendous array of foods. Thailand's food is a reflection of this as well as its rich religious and cultural heritage.
Through the use of subtle as well as highly aromatic and often fiery native herbs and chilies, we offer an eating experience which we hope will bring you back again to discover new dishes. Typical Thai food is often very hot, but the degree of hotness can be modified according to individual taste.
A recommended balance for a Thai meal would be rice, a curry dish, soup, a stir-fried meal, and salad or appetizer.
For lunches, noodle dishes and salads are recommended. Most meals are eaten family style, where each person is able to eat a portion of each dish offered.
Most Thais eat with a spoon in the right and fork in the left. Chopsticks, an adaption from Chinese, are often used with noodle dishes and are available upon request.
Many of the recipes in our restaurant have been handed down from generation to generation verbally and will not be found in any cookbook. Our chefs take pride in making all of our dishes from scratch with many local produce (some of which is grown right in the garden out back). We feel this offers the Madison community a unique and exciting experience that will never be harnessed by any "fast-food franchise". Always remember that good food takes time, love, and care.
We sincerely hope you enjoy your meal and again welcome you to our Sala Thai!
