Very pleasant night when we ventured into Sabai on an Saturday night without a booking. Surprisingly busy for a Saturday night in January, food good, very attentive and friendly staff. Price point also very competitive.

went there on Saturday. Even though it was pretty busy, the place is very quiet and perfect if you want to actually have a conversation! Service is flawless and food is amazing. I'll definitely recommend it!

Visited in October. The meal was beautiful and I noticed the food was perfectly sized...not to big and not to little. I had green curry and it was very spicy but not so much that I could not taste it. I would recommend as a special meal.

I eat on a reasonably regular basis at Sabai and I'm never disappointed. The menu is extensive, the variety pleasing and the food is fresh and very tasty. If Thai food is your thing then Sabai is a must. And you will be pleasantly surprised with the bill. The staff are attentive and friendly (just like the proprietors) and service... More
