Description: Sabai show's tremendous consistency having won a certificate of excellence award for the last 4 years running. The Thai word Sabai translates simply as relaxed, the perfect description of this Brighton gastrobar where the urban cool of London on Sea is matched to the ethnic charm of the Land of Smiles. Bringing a taste of Phuket's beach bars and Bangkok's most upmarket restaurants to the UK, Sabai is all about chilling out, South East Asian style a fact which is patently clear from the silk floor cushions, cocktail menu and warm, smiling welcome. The deep red and dark wood, gold and green interior is as beautiful as Sabai's freshly cooked, authentic food, MSG free and made using local ingredients where possible and imported Thai herbs and spices where essential. Because everything is made to order, special requests are welcomed.

Googled a Thai restaurant in Brighton as we are from outside the city and Sabai came up with the most reviews so we took the recommendation. Delighted we did. Amazing atmosphere, lovely staff and amazing Thai cuisine! Highly recommend it!

To be honest, my first impression was a little hazy, wasn't greeted by the waitor when entering the restaurant and had to ask twice for a bar menu. BUT if you can get over the waitors not being able to speak much englisht the food is amazing. By far the best thai food for great value. They also have live music every thursday which creates superb atmosphere. The best part are the thai cushions where you book in advance and eat in real thai style. Will definately be returning.

Thank you very much for your review. I am pleased you enjoyed the food. I just wanted to explain that the waiter you referred to was actually working his first night and was a little nervous, He has since opened up and we hope he will give the service that we are renowned for as you can see from other reviews.

if you decide to come again I am sure you will be greeted by a big warm welcome (if you don't please let me know)! All the best.

Kind regards

Brian
Co owner

I dined on Christmas Eve with my other half. It was a suprise birthday treat.
The servcie was faultless and the food is simply to die for.
I eat at a lot of Asian restaurants all over the country, especially several michelin stared places in London. This restaurant is potentially some of the best Thai food I have EVER had,.
An amazing find and I will be back again. Its worth a trip down from the city all on its own !
STUNNING CUISINE ! MASTER CHEF !

I have visited Sabai numerous times and I cant believe how good the food, atmosphere and service. I love their duck curry with sticky rice is the best! Thankyou Sabai.
