I am not a Thai food expert, but know a good meal when I get one. We recently ate here, we all loved our food, the service and the atmosphere. Middlebury has a good number of great restaurants, Sabai Sabai is one of them.

Eating in Vermont can be challenging for those of us who like some spice in our diets. Sabai Sabai fills the gap beautifully. Fresh ingredients are perfectly presented. Ask for Thai spicy and they will comply. My friend wanted ZERO spice. Both of us were very happy. Yum!

I think the food has been better here since they focused just on Thai food. The quality is very high and all the dishes are excellent. I've had almost every combination of curry, noodles (the Pad See Ew is really good) and stir fry. Didn't love the appetizer dumplings but all the main dishes are excellent and they can cater...

I have eaten at Middlebury's only Thai restaurant several times, but my recent experience taking relatives visiting from abroad was so horrific that I have to write this review. Our relatives have two children, aged 6 & 7. In Vermont, I expected that children would be welcome in any restaurant, but Sabai Sabai was NOT KID FRIENDLY. When we arrived,... More

I had been to Sabai Sabai several times in the past and had wonderful meals. I especially liked their sushi. I went there this time specifically to get sushi, but there was a sign in the dining room indicating they were no longer serving sushi. I was very disappointed but decided to eat there anyway. Then I ordered a curry... More

A solid Thai restaurant that is willing to make it authentically hot if you ask. Right in the downtown area. Great service. Nice, spacious room.

During our recent college tour over spring break to Middlebury, we found Sabai Sabai Thai Restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised how enjoyable our meal was and how nice our server (a UC Santa Cruz) graduate was. The food was tasty, portions were good sized and the prices were reasonable. Now this place is not a fancy restaurant, but it's perfect... More

Finally ate here after passing it a hundred times. What a surprise! This place has a major menu with most of the Thai classics and a few new twists on the theme. After we ordered, I saw they have a Japanese menu too so I ordered a dish called Yellowtail Banzai that was very nicely presented slices of sashimi in... More

My troop of older HS Girl Scouts planned this weekend of skiing, B&B and restaurants completely on their own, and we loved every minute of it. We wanted something ethnic, but also were on a strict budget. Sabai Sabai was authentic Thai food, which is one of my favorites, but because I am allergic to coconut milk, I tend to... More

We're into fresh, local, and organic in Vermont. But we're also into quality, reasonable, friendly, and tasty. That's why Sabai Sabai in Middlebury deserves five stars. This is not a fine dining experience, but it's a pretty damn good eating experience at an affordable price. The space is comfortable. The service (our experience) was friendly and competent. The beer selection... More
