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.

They were very attentive . I enjoyed my meal and would probably go back.

“It's like being transported back to Thailand”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Until recently I lived in Thailand for ten years. Like most people who have been to Thailand I instantly loved their food and have enjoyed experimenting with many different dishes. I have been to Sabai Thai Gastrobar on many occasions and I have nothing but praise for the place. Whenever we go to this authentically decorated restaurant we are greeted with big smiles. The staff are lovely and very attentive (which is something considering the restaurant is usually packed) and the food is excellent; deliciously capturing those wonderful Thai flavours.

I have been to many Thai restaurants since I have been back and I go back to this place over and over not just because of the food and service but also because it is cheaper than most of the others. Great food, happy, smiling service, and a good price is a combination I can never resist. We will be back very soon.

“Fabulous dinner”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Great experience at the Sabai. We went for a meal on Sat 3rd Aug 2013. They were able to book us a table last minute. The service was excellent, the atmosphere was excellent and of course the food was excellent. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone that enjoys Thai. I will definitely go there again when next in Brighton.
