Newly opend location

The newly opend building has the best atmosphere in town with warm light, some tables to sit on the floor and decent music. It is a great place to spend a relaxing evening and enjoy one of the many drinks they offer.

We visited Sabai Sabai for breakfast. We ordered two fruit shakes, one pumpkin soup and vegetable fried noodles. The service was incredibly slow, even by Laos standards. We had to go in search of someone in the end to order our food. The fruit shakes took 40 minutes to arrive and the food about an hour. The pumpkin soup arrived... More

A steam bath in the middle of Lao mountains is an excellent idea as it can get quite cold in the evenings. The massage is just okay, so choose at your discretion. Perhaps it's more enjoyable in the warm season, but then you won't really need the sauna. When you visit, make sure the owner, or the boss, is there.... More

We visited Sabai Sabai in February for an after sunset steam in the sauna. It fits perfectly for the simple and pleasant town. The sauna is small but we were pretty much the only ones using it. They provided unlimited tea, sarongs, and towels. You can go in as many times as you like and relax in the cool evening... More

Had several meals here during a visit to Nong Khiaw all of which were lovely. Also tried the herbal steam bath which was very relaxing and smelt great. We had to let the staff know an hour or so in advance of our arrival so they could prepare the sauna room, and so we took the opportunity to get a... More

We visited the sauna after hiking to the view point (well worth it - excellent views!!) and enjoyed the Lao herbal steam bath. It was so relaxing that we came the next night too. They serve great tea and let you go in as many times as you would like (3 was my maximum). The herbs smell great and make... More

Attempted to have a Laos Steam Bath - which they advertise all over town. Get there and get the distinct impression they don't want to do one but say to come back at 5pm (90 minutes later). So we hang around for 90mins come back and get "oh sorry sir, no". It was all very odd. Maybe they had a... More

We ate at Sabai Sabai only once, there was no reason to return. The service was slow even when we were the only guests there. We ordered duck with basil, which one would expect great combination of the flavorful duck accompanied with basil.Once the food arrived, the portion was quite small and the taste was just bland, quite disappointing after...

We decided on sabi sabi after a long day cycling, we went for the hour long foot massage which was really a foot /calf massage. We were directed to sit on some comfy lounger chairs in a little bamboo open shelter next to the road side, the smell from the tiger balm and the relaxing massage made me forget exactly... More

Had a very relaxing back, shoulder massage, but didn't really care to eat there as far more interesting places locally. Very friendly and helpful owner.

Description

Face au temple du village de Nong Khiaw, un joli restaurant construit tout en matériau naturel qui ne manque vraiment pas de charme surtout le soir avec ses lumières tamisées. Installés sur des coussins autours d'une table basse, ou plus occidental, table haute, nous testerons la cuisine traditionnelle Laotienne comme par exemple le bambou farci au porc, qui laisse un souvenir impérissable, le lapp au poulet envoûtant de saveur, la soupe de potiron au lait de coco et a la citronnelle,  le tout accompagné de riz gluant. Un détail de taille pour l'Asie : serviette de table en tissus ! Ça change du PQ !Aussi le jeune hôte de ces lieux nommé hôme, est d'une grande convivialité et pas avare de conseils de balades aux alentours.Cet établissement propose également des bains de vapeur aux herbes, et des massages Lao totalement décontractants.
