Ordered the spicy seafood soup and classic curry. I have been there twice, for take out only it's a cute little place inside and the food was served hot and pretty quickly. I will be back and recommend it if your in the area. Oh and they spice the food at the exact level of heat that you want.

I am not a usual review writer but I have rarely been this dissatisfied with customer service especially from the "owner" of a restaurant. I ordered food food at 6:06pm and was given a delivery window of 7:06 - 7:16 ... that seemed pretty long but I ordered anyway. At 7:30 my food had not arrived so I called the... More

I have eaten at this restaurant several times and the food is aboslutely womderful! To the person who wrote the review about flies and bad service? I have eaten here at least a dozen times and have never encountered flies or bad service. Their pad thai is the best I have ever had.

Great food for dine-in or take-away. Been eating here for years when I travel to Phoenix. Never ever had a bad dish. The food is tasty, authentic Thai and is served quickly. There is a consistent line of customers coming in for take-out, which is a great indicator of the quality and taste. The prices are great too.

This new location in Tempe is a real BOON for nearby residents and visitors, that want some authentic Thai food for satiating their hunger. I went into this facility and was greeted very promptly, and warmly. Our orders were taken quite soon after, and didn't take long at all to be served up. The portion sizes were very generous, the...

We like coming here for lunch. They have a great lunch menu and they get us in and out fast. I always order the curry chicken. Yum!

Was at the car wash down the street and had a craving for Thai. Assuming that lunch servings are usually small, we ordered 4 dishes from the good selection lunch menu: Basil Beef, Classic Curry (yellow curry with chicken, potatoes, onions and carrots), Pad Thai and the Garlic Chicken. All lunch dishes come with a choice of soup (vegetable) or... More

We tried Sa Bai after seeing a recommendation and review in the New Times. We chose our meals after reading other visitors' review on Trip Advisor. Our meals were both absolutely delicious. We will certainly visit this Thai restaurant again.

I really enjoyed this place. My 1st visit was the one on Thomas Rd. and the other 2 times was the new store on McClintock & Broadway, Tempe. The Thomas site is more of a sit down dining with full bar and great menu. The Tempe location has small area for dining and geared more for take out and delivery.... More
