Delicious food. Crispy pad Thai. Drunken noodles. Crab Rangoon. Yum!!! We stopped in for dinner before a show at the Portland stage next door. The place was empty which is unfortunate because the food was great. Very casual atmosphere. We'll go back I'm sure!

There is very good Thai food in Portland and surrounding towns. What Sabieng brings is a new take! Try it. The food is not all the old familiars...it's an adventure and family owned. And DELICIOUS

I've introduced my colleagues to this wonderful place. The Soups are very fresh and hot, Tom Yum with shrimp is outstanding. The owners are very nice people who really seem to care about the customers. I will be back!

I came here for an impromptu visit with my friend Alex, and another friend, during First Friday Art Walk. Part of the reason we chose this restaurant is that all of the places along the main drag were full, and had waiting lines... so we...More

We visit Sabieng every month or so and have been doing so for several years. We are often the only people in the place, but don't let that deter you from trying their food. Their Pad Thai is among the best in Portland and the...More

Excellent service, friendly owner-customer connections, lots of fresh green plants as part of decor, AND the food was perfection! Fresh salad was with mixed fresh greens & veggies and sumptuous dressing; curry was not too hot, but just-right spicy with wonderful assorted veggies and sauce;...More
