Great little spot on Partridge St, the coffe is hot and the menu is appealing. The poached eggs are a must with mushrooms and good quality bread of your choosing.

The food selection is mainly Asian based. Peter and his staff are always friendly. The atmosphere is very relaxed. Sometimes its just a take away coffee.

I have heard that the Pad Thai from here was really good. Its not that it didn't taste nice, but a chicken PadThai with three small pieces chicken and a mixed Pad Thai with two pieces of chicken and two prawns doesn't really cut it. It's a false economy scrimping on ingredients as now we won't order from there again.... More

Called in again to this cafe for a coffee which was excellent, hence two stars. Close to lunch time so we thought we would order lunch, Pad Thai with chicken for us both. Looked nice when it was served. I had not even eaten a mouthful when I saw something sticking up in my forkful of noodles. It was the... More

We have only ever been to Sabai for coffee. I have to say it is some of the nicest coffee around Glenelg. It has a great atmosphere and the staff are always friendly. It is a great spot to meet friends or family.

Sabai is just around the corner from where our daughter lives, and we've become regulars. It never fails to deliver a pleasant experience. Food is consistently great, and the staff are just lovely relaxed and welcoming. It's only a small cafe style setting, but the service always comes with a friendly smile. We love this place.

Great Thai in a nice quiet suburban area and a nice little restaurant, great service. Reasonably priced - favourite was the green curry. Have also had breakfast there which is also excellent!

This is a great find in suburban Glenelg South - amongst so many very average eateries in the entire Glenelg area. People pack the place from breakfast to dinner and while I don't drink it, I'm told the coffee is the best in the area. Food is suitable for a range of tastes, from breakfast most of the day, to...
