My family loves this place. The food is always great. Everything on the menu is good. Good place to eat if you are vegetarian or gluten free.

The food here is awesome. I guaranteed you that this is as original Thai food as you going to get without going to Thai versus some other watered down , Americanized Thai restaurants. Highly recommended. Food is great, price is very competitive.

Our curries were amazing. We had a red and a yellow curry. Both tasted great. Be careful with choosing a hot curry (you can order between 1 (mild) and 10 (very hot)) when you don't like spicy food. As an appetizer we had fresh spring rolls which were also very good. Most of the guests were asian so we thought... More

We had heard and read a lot of rave reviews for The Original Sab E Lee. We finally made the trip and were not disappointed. The Tom Yum Soup had the same flavor we had when we first experienced it in Thailand! The drunken noodles and chow mein were also fantastic. This is our "go to" place for Thai. We... More

The Original Sab-e-Lee's food is fabulous! The Tom Yum Soup is over the top good. My husband and I looked at each other when we tasted it and said "That's the Taste!!" we were missing from the same dish we first had in Thailand. Noodle dishes were great. Fresh Thai food, which great customer service.

We've been waiting to eat here ever since they moved to a larger location. Nevertheless, there is always a line out the door during dinner time. We finally went around 4 p.m. when we could easily get a table. The food is really good here. I undoubtedly would have given the restaurant a 5 if I had ordered the Pad... More

Don't expect any fancy decor, but if you're going for decor instead of the food, you shouldn't be allowed in anyway. Amazingly flavorful and some of the more authentic thai food I've come across in the US. Wonderfully reasonable prices and plenty of parking to boot. Cash only though, so make sure you're prepared or visit the ATM in the... More

I started going to this little restaurant when it had seating for about 20. Soon, it was written up in the neighborhood newspaper! How lucky for all of us who like Thai food that they moved to a larger place. Food remains flavorful and fantastic, service is superb, parking plentiful. We had duck, fried tofu, noodles, and couldn't eat all... More

I live in the Linda Vista area and had heard good things about this place but could never bring myself to go until they moved to a larger location on the main street. At first, there were lines out the door every time I passed by, so I didn't go until now. Tables were available for a late lunch and... More
