Sabai Sabai is an amazing Thai spot located near Church and Dundas, just a few minutes’ walk from Dundas station so it’s dead handy to get to. The exterior is very unassuming but once inside it’s a cool and relaxed atmosphere – we arrived around 5.30-ish on a weekday and there were a few spare tables, but by the time we left, the place was wedged so I’d recommend booking a table if you want to get a seat.
The evening menu consists of an array of tapas styled Thai dishes! Initially when I heard tapas I had an image of tiny wee dishes of this and that, and me leaving the place just as hungry as when I went in… How wrong was I?!
Our server recommended 2-3 dishes per person, trust her on this one. Remember tapas are for sharing so don’t all get the same thing! Be adventurous and try something you never normally would. I went with a large group so was able to sample quite a bit of the menu and found all of the food to be amazing.
I’d highly recommend the Northern Thai curry fish custard (pictured) for those that like fish and the khao sol if you’re not a fan of hot curries. For the vegetarian or vegans among you, you’ll be happy to hear they have quite a nice selection of vegan dishes. If you’ve room left after that or have more of a sweeter tooth check out the desserts, they change weekly so ask your server about them – sticky rice and mango doesn’t sound overly impressive but trust me when I say it tastes like the nicest rice pudding you’ve yet to have!
One final thing to note about this place is the cocktails – Treat yo’self to a pitcher! They all taste amazing, you definitely won’t regret it!
