A comfortable atmosphere, friendly service and a nice assortment of Thai dishes to choose from. Wish they were closer to home. We would eat there every week!

I was here mid-week and enjoyed the pot stickers and chicken cashew. Both good - I suspect other dishes were better from what I could observe. Service was very rapid and friendly. Restaurant is quite open, chairs are comfortable.

My son and I enjoyed a great lunch here after visiting the college. The Pad Thai was flavorful and had a nice noodles/sauce ratio. The Mussamun Curry was sweet with just the right amount of peanuts. The restaurant has character unlike many Thai restaurants-- a high ceiling and nice seating in two bay windows. Friendly service. We'll be back.

Nothing to rave about. My sweetheart was happy with his pad Thai and my green curry with tofu was made spicy as requested. It was a busy weekend night packed with college students and their parents-perhaps the kitchen was overwhelmed with not enough time to add that something extra which would have elevated the meal. (Service was very friendly and... More

Work at Porter and my husband picked up take out for us on my break. Pretty big portions and it was hot and flavorful. I got the chicken pad Thai and I really did love it. No option for spicy level and it still didn't beat the chicken pad Thai I've ever had (in Pittsburgh PA) but I would go... More

I have eaten here three times. The first time, not long after it opened, but long enough that all the problems that a restaurant has when it opens were resolved. The service was excellent, and the food was good, good enough to convince us to return sometime in the future. We did return. Perhaps it was a bad night? Perhaps... More

A friend and I ate here because of its good reputation. We had lunch, pad Thai and yellow curry. It was only okay, and after tip $15/ ppn, so quite expensive we thought for what we received.

My yellow curry was great, but my son's noodle dish was so over seasoned he could have choked on it. The crab Rangoon lacked crab, but that's pretty standard most places. Given the location in rural VT, if you have a hankering for Thai, I would say give it a try.

I was treated to dinner at Sabai Sabai last week by an out of town visitor, and I was surprised by how much it has improved over the past few years. The vegetables were fresh and varied, the spices were subtle, and the meal was satisfying. The price for dinner seemed very reasonable too. The only disappointment was the appetizer... More

We've eaten at Sabai Sabai on numerous occasions and have always been very happy. This noon, my husband had the spicy fish, a whole red snapper, disassembled, deep-fried and reassembled. The result was delicious and stunning. Good IPA on tap.
