“Cozy atmosphere and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

We stopped at Sabha Thai in Langford for lunch and were delighted by the warmth from the fireplaces in the dining area. It really made us feel comfortable on a cool day.

The waitstaff were helpful and friendly.

We enjoyed our meals--possibly the best Thai food we've had in Victoria.

There is parking out front.

I have been coming to Sabhai in Langford for over a year and it is by far and away the best in town. Highly recommend the lunch combos!!

“One of the Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014

This is our second time here with friends at their recommendation (locals). The food is excellent and atmosphere nice but maybe a bit noisy for some. Only bad thing (?) is the place was packed (again) and on a Saturday and we waited over 20 minutes even though we had reservations. However once seated, our order was promptly taken by friendly waitress. My wife asked for a substitution and it was made, no problem. We all drank just water and she kept the bottle full for us. Great food but make reservations..

“Great Thai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

We go to sabbhai thai either in sidney or langford at least once a month and often get a take out too. We have never been disappointed, the flavours are fantastic, my fiance just loves the phad thai and the sweet drunken noodles are my favourite with satay skewers and spring rolls to start.....yum!!

The restaurants are nothing special, the service isnt anything over the top but you get consistently good food at a decent price.

“Best Thai in Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

The sign of a good restaurant is consistency. I have been to Sabhai, both the Langford and the Sidney location, and have yet to be disappointed. This little restaurant has the winning formula. Authentic Thai food at a reasonable price.

Langford is the blue collar district of Victoria, the working mans domain, so it is reasonable to expect basic eats in this neck of the woods. However Sabhai takes it's menu to the next level. It offers authentic Thai food at very reasonable prices. The food is deliciously spiced to your liking, served hot and promptly. Consistency is key, and Sabhai delivers.

The lunch menu is of particular value, soup, two spring rolls and a main for about $10. The menu is small, but that keeps the food of a high quality, large turn over means fresh food.

The wait staff is friendly and conscientious, never an empty water glass. The wine is reasonably priced and one can partake for only $5 per glass.

Sabhai is high on my list for great Thai food. Like I said, I've been many times, and the quality of service and food is great!
