After testing six of the top ranked (in Tripadvisor)Thai restaurants in Brighton, no doubt, Sabai is the best! Giggling Squid is good but the over-all experience in Sabai is better. It’s a “must” for any Thai-food-lover passing Brighton - or Sussex

A lovely atmosphere inside. Thai theme. Water running on a wall. Not sure if it would be noisy next to it. Went for a Friday lunch and ate off the set menu so very good value. A little limited so you have to choose carefull...More

Really nice food and service. There is a huge variety of dishes. They also accept reservations, which is quite convenient since the place isn’t too big

To start, Tom yum soup with either chicken or prawns had a good depth of flavour but was rather one dimensional. Prawns with lime and coriander were delicious and perfectly cooked. Red curry with beef was good, although the beef was rather tough. Som tum...More

We had hoped to eat there after going to the theatre, but they closed at 10 pm. So we went back next day and had lunch. Their "afternoon special" - £9.95 for two courses was excellent value.

Went here for a pre theatre meal. Friendly, unintrusive service and excellent food fresh and tasty. The red duck curry was fragrant and delicious. I like jasmine tea with Thai food and this was the best I've had in a large pot. A new discovery...More

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.
