Decent Thai restaurant with a nicely-sized list of GF options on their menu. Their most recent remodel has created a nice, serene ambiance for a restaurant that's located in a strip mall. Pad thai and spring rolls are excellent. Loved the Pad-Z-You before they switched from a thin rice noodle to a thicker one (it ends up overcooked and turns... More

This has been one of our go to restaurants for over 15 years for our visits to Madison. We always talk about trying someplace new, but the convenient location, excellent service and delicious meals keep us coming back. We almost always have at least one curry (the Masaman is a favorite with the squash and peanuts) and the Mango with... More

We were on vacation and wanted to have some Thai food and compare it to our experience in the Milwaukee area. We were disappointed to say the least. I would not rave about this place. The chicken satay had pieces of chicken that were grilled and perfectly uniform in shape. This suggested to me it came out of a frozen... More

10 of us from out of town decided to go on a Friday night, at the recommendation of our local friend. They were very accommodating, even for people splitting dishes, the food came quickly and correctly. They do have a limit of 6 separate checks, which was fine for us. The tip was included at a very reasonable rate. And... More

I was invited to this place. I liked the food there. But I felt the restaurant was a little cramped. The tables were pretty close and that made me a little uncomfortable. Another con was the smell of non-vegetarian food. I go to restaurants that serve non-vegetarian food but when the smell is overpowering, it gets difficult for me. I... More

We ordered spring rolls, chicken satay and volcano chicken for lunch - plenty for 2 of us to share! The peanut sauce was especially tasty and had a nice texture. We loved the batter for the volcano chicken - it was a very crisp tempura-type crust. We will stop in during a future trip to Madison.

My son and I visited he University location, having seen this restaurant on the Isthmus Reader's Choice magazine. My son had the pad Thai, and I ordered another dish that the waitress suggested. An egg roll, spring roll and summer roll were all good but nothing outstanding. Our dinners were nothing special either.

We got carry-out for dinner after "too much family & friends talking" & loved all of our 4 different dishes. The service was efficient & friendly. The food was delicious & when we told friends we'd gotten food at Sa Bai Thong, they all said, "Oh, their food is the best." Thus, it sounds like the locals all know how... More

A favorite Madison Thai restaurant. Although located in a smaller strip mall it is worth seeking out. This location has been here many years; so, although the atmosphere is not very appealing it is worth seeking out for the great food. We recently ate here on a warm Wisconsin summer evening. Although not really a patio, there is seating outside... More
