So many good memories made here! The food is always excellent, and the service is outstanding. I would go every day if I could. So many favorites on the menu. The Rangoon Gimlet is the best cocktail I’ve ever had!

I always have wonderful food at Sabai! The atmosphere is bustling and noisy but that is because it is so popular. I have been here many times over the years and i am never disappointed. It is awesome that they have expanded.

If they have the Paella special for two get it. One salad was plenty for 2. Good selection of wine and beer.
