The experience was excellent. The food was great, good quality and fresh. The server (Paola) was extremely kind and made sure we were all well taken care of. The decor and the ambiance is perfect for a good conversation and catching up with friends. The only area where it felt a bit short was the wine list, we had a good wine but the options were limited. Will come back again

Crispy fish did not seem fresh. The crisp was killed by the wet of the mango: nothing worse than eating supposed crispy food all wet. Pad Thai average. Way too noisy and ambience is poor. The wine glass had an egg smell (be careful when you treat eggs as it is very common that dishes smell like egg if not washed properly). You should smell it before putting on the table. Only good thing: the waiter was super kind and nice (thank you!) and that is why we left a nice tip. But it’s a totally no-go, sorry to say it. But NYC deserves much more.

Great food, and very kind staff! I decided to give Sabai a try when I learned that another place I loved had closed. The ratings looked great, so I took a chance, and it was worth it! The food was delicious, and the wait staff was attentive. The manager was very welcoming and it is clear they work hard to ensure that their guests are satisfied. I would definitely come back!

It was a nice experience going out to dinner with my younger daughter. I had the chicken Massaman which was excellent and my daughter had Pad See Yew which she liked. We started with the vegetarian spring rolls which were gluten free.

It was a weekday night which was very busy and lively. The wait staff was very attentive and gracious. I would highly recommend to anyone in the area looking for an upscale Thai dining experience.

We went during happy hour and were seated pretty quickly! The appetizers were delicious and so were the drinks! It was empty when we went but service still took awhile. I got the pad se ew to go and it was just ok. The Satay and spring rolls were the stars! And highly recommend getting the peanut dipping sauce for the spring rolls and veggie rolls!

Very poor experience at Sabai Thai. After a week of wonderful dining experiences in NYC we had a disappointing experience. Inspite of having made a reservation we had to wait 40 mins before we got our table. On top of that, after dinner we wanted to have dessert and were told the kitchen was closed! No heads up, no apology.

For purposes of convenience or if you have never had thai food, this place will do, but based on my one experience there, I would not recommend Sabai Thai. I mean, if you're into mushiness and oil, and you enjoy surly service, you might like it more than me. Its just not my thing. We ordered the pad se ew with tofu and when it came with shrimp, soft as baby food and glistening with oil, our server insisted that is what we had ordered and set it down without offering to change it. The whole crispy fried snapper was served already cut into chunks individually fried and bathed in sugary sauce. All this aside, the space was nice, so its got that going for it.
