“Wonderful food and great service.”
Reviewed March 21, 2012

Went with a friend for lunch and sat outside on the patio.

The food was really great, papaya salad with a bit of cilantro, few shrimp, peanuts and a vinegar, sugar and fish sauce dressing. So fresh and light. Massaman Curry Chicken, really great flavor, vegetables and chicken cooked well. You can select your level of spicyness, 1-10.

A bit pricey for an every day lunch, about $19 with tip. But worth the treat.

Our server was very attentive and pleasant, did a great job. Owner asked us how everything was on the way out and seemed very sincere.

Free, covered parking is available at the north side of the Dayton Convention Center parking garage. They have carryout.

Former Chin's restaurant location.

“Excellent Thai Restaurant”
Reviewed January 11, 2012

We've been here 3 or 4 times, and the food and service has consistently been very good.

Extensive menu with lots of choices, particularly for vegetarians.

A Must Try: The house salad (shredded carrot and cabbage with a tangy dressing)

“Nice 1st Visit”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

After an event at the Schuster Center, my wife and I decided to try this restaurant since it's still fairly new and didn't think it was going to be as busy as other restaurants near Oregon District. The atmosphere and customer service were great. We didn't quite know which way to go when we were asked whether we wanted the bar or sushi bar area. We sat at the sushi bar. We were the only one there at 5pm on a Saturday. We ordered some sushi and Thai entrees. I ordered white fish sushi and futomaki. The rice on the sushi was somewhat dry, so that was a disappointment although some of the reviews from other sites were fairly positive. The food was nice and hot. My wife ordered some sushi and a noodle dish with the spiciness of 2 out of 10. My level 2 spiciness wasn't hot at all, which is what I wanted. But my wife's level 2 was spicy, so be careful if you are ordering a noodle dish and don't like spicy food. Since it was our first time, the waiter there gave us a 20% off coupon that lasts till next December. We'll give another try at this place. It was really nice because we didn't have to wait at all (unlike Thai 9). It's somewhat difficult to find as the restaurant is located on Jefferson at 5th (Jefferson is a one-way street), so you might drive around at least once. Make sure not to park in the garage behind Neon Theatre because you can simply park on the street. So if you would like a new Asian fusion (Chinese, Thai, and Vietnamese food), try Sa Bai.

“Great Thai food and service”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

The food here is consistently good and flavorful. The service is good, too. I love the free, covered parking near the door - great in stormy weather!
