Food, service make Sabai Thai a favorite spot


Authentic Thai food. The menu includes everything from Pad Thai to Orange Duck. There’s also a large selection of sushi.


This gem, tucked away in a nondescript strip shopping center, is infused with a charming ambiance. The colorful wall murals, captivating light fixtures and nice-size bar are eclipsed only by the warm welcome diners receive.


Our server helped us navigate the menu, and her suggestion for the stir-fried duck with and red curry sauce ($22.95) was a winner in both taste and presentation. The bell peppers, basil, bamboo shoots and zucchini paired with the perfectly cooked duck tasted as good as it looked. The pho Kiew Teaw Kai ($11.95) with chicken, Chinese broccoli, bean sprouts, scallions and cilantro was a bowlful of yumminess. The fresh summer rolls ($6.95) — veggies wrapped up in rice paper — were light and tasty, the perfect way to start our dining experience. We also gave two thumbs up to one of the specialties, the Lobster Woonsen Pad Thai ($24.95), clear noodle Pad Thai with lobster and shrimp wrapped in an egg nest, so gorgeous it belongs on the cover of a food magazine.


Mix delicious, authentic food and exemplary service and you get a recipe for a restaurant that you want to visit again and again.


We wish every restaurant staff were this attentive, efficient, friendly and welcoming.


Diners can choose between booths, tables or the bar — and it’s easy to carry on a conversation from any vantage point.


Kids with adventurous palates will love it here, but there are also dishes for those who prefer a walk on the mild side.
