Pleasant

Nice and quiet on a Monday night. Starters were pretty average but were cold. Main courses were really nice and decent portion size. Really enjoyable meal in pleasant surroundings. Would visit again.

£56 for a meal for two without wine or desert. Food was okay, not brilliant. Restaurant lacked atmosphere, and played the same song on repeat for 2 hours to try introduce some. Service was good.

I have been to both Sabai Aberdeen and Sabai Inverurie, They both have a good atmosphere and authentic Thai feel about them as majority of staff are Thai.The food is always good and decent sized portions so good value for money. They also do take-away's too which I use a lot.Thai Green curry every time! Wouldn't go anywhere else.

4 of us dined on a busy Saturday night and we all commented how much we enjoyed the food. The service was good if a bit erratic but at least we twice got double drinks orders which, although we had to explain and sort it out, is preferable to having to ask twice for one round of drinks! Slightly ropey... More

The staff really know their stuff and were able to recommend certain dishes depending on what meat you like, if you're vegetarian etc. The staff were... More

Best quality Thai food in Aberdeen by far! Love it here! I'd recommend the Red Thai Chicken curry. And the Coconut rice!

Had dinner with a friend, service was top notch, as was the food we chose. We were able to get a table before the dinner rush without reservation. Would go again.
