Sabai Cafe has been consistently brilliant for the time I have been visiting. Take-away is on par with their in restaurant service, and when it comes to service the staff are brilliant. Flavours are fresh, vibrant & light - the way good Thai should be. Menu is regularly adjusted and some fine Australian wines feature on the wine list. Staff... More

Long table in the back room so we could hear each other. Delightful food - fresh, tasty, deliciously spicy. Quick to be served, lots of variety (gluten-free and vegetarian requirements met with ease) and good prices. Lovely easy dinner with great food. Thanks Sabai!

Great little spot on Partridge St, the coffe is hot and the menu is appealing. The poached eggs are a must with mushrooms and good quality bread of your choosing.

The food selection is mainly Asian based. Peter and his staff are always friendly. The atmosphere is very relaxed. Sometimes its just a take away coffee.

I have heard that the Pad Thai from here was really good.

It's a false economy scrimping on ingredients as now we won't order from there again.... More

Looked nice when it was served. I had not even eaten a mouthful when I saw something sticking up in my forkful of noodles. It was the... More

We have only ever been to Sabai for coffee. I have to say it is some of the nicest coffee around Glenelg. It has a great atmosphere and the staff are always friendly. It is a great spot to meet friends or family.
