“Consistently excellent food”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

When you sit outside at Sabai Thai at Customs House and watch the light and laser show at Marina Bay Sands watching the world go bu enjoying their great food and wine the world is a happy place!

With a vast menu to choose from and an extensive vegetarian one Sabai Thai hardly ever fails to deliver quality food. The wines on offer are also pretty good. Service is occasionally haphazard with food all coming at the same time even when you tell them starters first but that's just Singapore! You get around that by only ordering one course at a time.

Sit outside and enjoy the views and the atmosphere and really enjoy a great place to go for dinner.

“Friendly & Helpful”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

Great food! The server went the extra mile to help me understand how the dishes were prepared. Even expained the different types of noodles and sauces. Great job! Food was a cut above the regular Thai restaurant experience. Much more care and attention to details in preparing the dishes.

“Good value for money - high end excellent Thai food”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

I have a very long experience of Thai food. Even though I am European I regularly cook and eat Thai food. Sabai is my favorite Thai restaurant in Singapore (so far). It has a great choice of food and an excellent service. I was very sad when they closed their second restaurant at Takashimaya but its I worth traveling to the old customs house on the bay to get a great Thai lunch or dinner. Reservations are essential.

“Bit pricey, but nice”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

We had a visiting colleague from overseas, so took them here for a more 'up-market' Thai.

Interior has a nice décor & outdoor tables have a water view, though more side on than actually facing out over to MBS like some other shorefront restaurants.

Overall, the food was very nice & service friendly - but I thought that paying $220 for 2 entrees & 2 mains, 4 Singha beers & a water was a bit pricey & I've had just as good at many more casual Thai places for much less, albeit minus the view.

“World-class Thai dining”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

What a great restaurant. Innovative cocktails and classic thai dishes made to mouthwatering perfection with the freshest ingredients. The salads were fragrant and delicious, the duck-lichee curry was without doubt the best curry I have ever tasted, and the steamed sea bass was pure delight. A treat!
