I was confused as to how this place could get such mixed reviews, until that was we actually ate there. What a mixed bag !! The prawn wrap starter was AMAZING - fresh and tasty, and a pleasure to eat however, the mixed Hors D’Oeuvre stater platter was AWEFUL -tasteless, cheap, deep-fried nastiness. Lovely red curry, but our egg fried... More

Came here to try the massaman curry as I am a huge fan. Food was very tasty and service was good. Price was moderate for a Thai restaurant. Would come again .

Five of us had a hugely enjoyable visit for a late Saturday lunch. As ever, a chilled atmosphere, friendly, efficient service, great cocktails and tasty food was our experience. All the staff are good but the icing on the cake was the return of Jamie, who always looks after us so well. Welcome back! It was a first visit for... More

The menu is varied, offering options to those who are vegetarian and also those with food allergies. Service was good, food tasted fresh, I would recommend this restaurant.

Not a restaurant I'll go raving about to all my friends, but we did have a nice lunch here. We got the 2 course lunch menu for under £10. Don't get the crispy noodle starter without asking what it is, I was not prepared! However the pork skewers were delicious. The red thai curry could have been a little spicier... More

My partner and I were looking for somewhere to eat for an early dinner and stumbled across Sabai. We were just in time for the lunch time deal and were really impressed. The staff were attentive, and the food delicious, beautifully presented, flavoursome and hot. Great value for money. Definitely recommend a visit!

We ordered via Deliveroo after seeing all the good reviews on trip advisor/vegan options but upon arrival we were very underwhelmed both with flavour and portion size. We had a vege spring roll starter which was the best part of the meal, but only four rolls for the price was disappointing. The massaman curry with "vegan chicken pieces" was bland... More

We always love Thai food and maybe right now, I think we have become quite expert on authenticity and presentation. However on our recent visit we were quite disappointed as the Tom Yum Gai was cold when served and the stir fried chicken with basil was far too sweet and must of had too much sugar in it.

We came here relatively frequently whilst living in Brighton and it is my favourite Thai restaurant. The food is always delicious and bursting with flavour, the cocktails are amazing and the service is great. When I visit Brighton again, I will be coming here without a doubt, and would recommend it to anyone.

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.
