Was in Sabai for dinner on Saturday to celebrate a friends wife's birthday. The food is still as fantastic (starter soft shell crab and Cho Chee Prawns for my main .....Absolutely mouthwatering!!!)). Also love the Malbec they have on the wine list. The service was very good, as it is every time, which is impressive given how busy they were.... More

We went there on Saturday night and immediately alarm bells started ringing. The menus were all tattered and torn ! Ive eaten here once before and it was good (not brilliant) but we've eaten at its sister branch in Inverurie which is much better run. Food was average but a bit greasy. Its like its lost its heart and no... More

The service was excellent with Thai staff fluent in English but capable of conversing in Thai as well. My dining companion being Thai, she was able to confirm her choices with the waiter. The meal was excellent though could have been a little 'hotter' in terms of spicy. Wine was suitable and palatable. All in all a very 'Sabai' meal.

Starters were excellent. Real prawns in the prawn toast, nice crisp pastries and the tastiest satay sauce I have ever eaten. The green curry was packed with flavour and a tiny bit of a kick on the back of your throat after eating. Deep fried ice-cream was not as hot on the outside as I would have liked, but very... More

This was our second time at Sabai and we were really looking forward to our dining experience, as we had thoroughly enjoyed our evening when we had previously visited. Sadly on this visit the evening was spoilt by the attitude of our waiter. The food was excellent, but unfortunately I believe that average food with excellent service can pull off... More

We really enjoyed the food and the service was also good, but my they know how to charge. Far too expensive to make a habit of going here.

The food and service were very good here but we felt it was very expensive. Wouldn't rush back and would try a slightly cheaper option next time

Extremely noisy establishment,I do appreciate an atmosphere, but not of this nature !, and with overpriced food I wouldn't recommend this place. There are far better restaurants of this type in Aberdeen.

As we intended going on a Friday evening we reserved a table. We were told that they could give us a table at seven but could only have it until nine. When we arrived the place was not too busy and we were seated, given menus and our drinks order was taken. We placed our order for starters, mains and... More

Food as always was good although over priced. My review is based on the following: At those prices, I would like to eat at a time of my choosing and not feel like I'm being herded into a pen at a time that suits the restaurant and not necessarily the customer. In an effort to make as much profit as... More
