The Salem Licensing Board approved a request for outdoor seats at their meeting Monday night.

Thai Place, Salem.
Thai Place, Salem.

It's looks like outdoor dining will be coming to Thai Place in Salem this spring. 

At their meeting at the City Hall Annex Monday night, the Salem Licensing Board approved a motion granting the owner's request for up to 15 seats outside the East india Square Mall restaurant.

Do you think outdoor seating will work near this entrance to the mall? Have you been to Thai Place? What did you think?

I like the Thai Place, but I don't think I'd want to sit outside overlooking the parking lots, and that junction right there can get quite busy. I'll look later, but I didn't think the sidewalk was all that wide outside there. I know a little further down where the trolley company has a stop, they completely block the sidewalk already, making it impassable, but I don't remember if that's only in October.

I drove by to see exactly where the outdoor seating would be, but I could not even see it! There was a box truck parked right at that spot dropping off a delivery! They probably park there for unloading deliveries to the businesses in the mall. Can you imagine if they leave the truck idleing and you're sitting there eating? Hopefully they'll come at off times. Earlier I thought that it was just too close to traffic and fumes from the garage and parking lots and not a great spot for outdoor dining. I like Thai Place as well, but I think I'd prefer to dine in....
