My best friend took me here for my first Thai restaurant meal. The food was so delicious - hot and very flavourful! We got the green papaya salad, green fish curry, beef salad, stir fry eggplant and a side of brown rice. The staff was very tenantive and gave us excellent recommendations. It was a busy place with a great... More

I have visited Sabai Sabai three times - most recently twice within the last week. I have had great experiences at this restaurant. The atmosphere is lively and fun, and I love the tapas sharing style. I wouldn't exactly call myself a Thai food expert (however I have travelled before in Thailand) however, I would have to say that I... More

We dined there 11 July. The food and service were great. We had been in Toronto one week and this was the best meal and best value that we had experienced. Getting carried away by the moment we booked the next night. We came back on 12 July (our last night in town) and ordered totally different items off the... More

Came here for dinner after searching trip advisor for good restaurants near our hotel. Glad we did as the food was great. Also had a cocktail which was good. Liked the tapas style dishes - had 4 dishes and rice between two and that was just enough for us.

Amazing food, great service, great price. Well deserved number 1 ranking. A must try for anyone in Toronto. Be warned - it gets very busy very fast so it's best to book ahead. Staff know everything about every meal, very traditional Thai food, and well equipped bar.

I have tried a few different Thai restaurants and this has by far been the best. After living in Thailand for a year I am always searching for the best Thai. The Spicy Green Papaya salad made extra spicy was perfect and the Kow Niow (sticky rice was great) finally able to just get sticky rice with no coconut milk... More

We had dinner here recently on the recommendation of a friend. Even though it was busy, we wereswated fairly quickly. The service was friendly, and there was enough staff that they were pretty attentive. The ambience of restaurant itself was not so great as it was a bit dark and very loud. The food was hit and miss. The squash... More

This place is popular and has a cool atmosphere. Food is mild for somewhere claiming to offer authentic Thai. The tapas formula does't fit with Thai food either. Most plates are too small to share beyond two people. What we had was good, though unremarkable. Sevice was good.
