Would definitely recommend a visit to this place. It is small and can be busy so be prepared to wait or go early. Food was delicious and service good. We had prawn crackers, chicken wings and sweet and sour chicken, fried rice and prawn dish. Two drinks each came to 800 bhats. About £19 . Defiantly recommend

Food good but service a bit haphazard. Can be difficult to get table as long stay guests from adjacent hotel regularly eat here. Twice booked table, once for two persons, once for six. Not done they forgot!

So there are two restaurants called Sabia Sabia in Cape Panwa (which is a very small place) The one I am writing about is the first one you come to as you drive towards the sea front. It's the closet to the Pullman Hotel. Anyhow we chose this one on our first night as it was close to the hotel... More

Fantastic value, fresh Thai food. A family run restaurant with a calm relaxed atmosphere. Don't be put off by its location. My mother raved about the pineapple rice with prawns, served in a pineapple, the fresh lemon juice was the best I've tasted and the milk shakes were excellent. It is not sophisticated but if you are looking for fresh... More

We were looking for something fairly simple and quick after a busy day diving. There was a good range of Thai food which was very tasty and fresh. We were able to please everyone's tastes, teenage kids and grandmother. Much better value than staying and eating at the hotel with meals costing around BHT 100-150. Drinks were also excellent value... More

Had reasonably high expectations of this place after reading reviews. The food and service were ok, but nothing special and I wouldn't rush back. There are 2 restaurants in cape panwa with this name so I think the reviews on here are a mixture of the 2 places. The one we went to is next to sunset bar

We came here because of the cheese burger. This is our second visit of sabai sabai this year. Our conclusion, beef burger, not chicken nor fish burger! First visit dine in, Pan fried morning glory - why no chilli ? Chicken burger - why the beef burger sold out? Yellow curry with shrimp - why so many pineapple ? Coconut... More

This place is brilliant and serves the some of the best Thai food we have come across in Thailand - no joke! Do not be put off if the restaurant is empty - it is family owned and they are always welcoming and hospitable. They remembered us from previous years and have always served us the most fantastic food which... More

We stayed at Kantary Bay for 4 weeks and ate here regularly The food is excellent especially the chicken wings and green curry. The drinks are cheap and the red wine is served in large glasses filled to the brim. This is a lovely,friendly small eatery we love it
