We choose to go early on a weekend night and did not have to wait or have reservations but by ,the place was full with a line outside in the rain. I can see why. Great food, well presented and flavorful with just the right amount of hot (one pepper, two pepper or three pepper). We decided to try the... More

We had reservations for 5:30 .It was my mother's 93rd Birthday The food is good .The wait staff friendly .But, the service was slow - which makes me believe that it is the kitchen's fault . Oh and the bartender was even slower . It's 5:30 on a Saturday and the place is crowded. I would think that the management... More

Recently invited friends to join us for dinner at Sabai who had not been there yet. They are very particular about where they eat so we were a little ill at ease about that. We need not have worried, they both loved their meals and the ambiance. We were one of the early customers when they first opened their doors... More

My salmon was great; so well cooked and I enjoyed the curry - spicy but not too much. I don't eat veggies and there was A LOT of those in my dish. There were not mushy appealing appetizers either but I realize an adult not eating vegetables is unusual. The service was a bit slow.

Have strolled past this Oakway based restaurant many times headed for Ox and Fin, Nordstroms. etc: have been walking past a gem! Arrived on a rainy Saturday late afternoon and found the place full: brief wait for table was rewarded with great service, a fine seasonal menu with a fusion of Thai and Northwestern flavors and recipes, creative and fun...

Food excellent. Service impeccable. House cocktails are awesome and if you don't find anything excellent they replace it quickly. Always excellent.

The food was very good- all four of the entrees and appetizers. The gimlets were wonderful. The service was very good especially since it was a weekend. No way we would have gotten in without a reservation

Reading 1 or 2 of the previous reviews of this restaurant made me a bit skeptical but we wanted to try it anyhow. We hadn't made reservations, so sitting inside would have been a long wait, but they graciously accommodated my group by setting tables together outside. We ordered several different items and shared with each other. I can't image... More

The food was really good, but the service was vacuous and slow. They were all very nice, but not very effective. Hard to get a drink, or more water; asked the bus boy to clean the table, and he just smiled and walk away.
