This family-owned restaurant has won over fans with an extensive menu that is full of authentic Thai dishes. Don’t expect western dishes here as the Sabhai Thai Restaurant has proudly been serving traditional cuisine since 2005. Open for lunch and dinner, the menu has the spicy dishes many Thai food fans seek. There’s seating for 60 in this licensed restaurant. Reservations, particularly on traditionally busy nights are recommended. You’ll find a lot of regulars return to the Sabhai Thai Restaurant and it’s equally welcoming for out-of-towners exploring the island.
Start things off with a delightful selection of appetizers called “aahaan waang”. You can get an order for yourself or share them to introduce more variety. For something unusual try the “gratong taung” or golden cups. They are minced chicken seasoned with garlic, cilantro, onions and corn served with eight homemade golden cup shells and mild Thai plum sauce. “Tom yum gai” is chicken hot ‘n sour soup and “tom kah soong” is prawn coconut soup. The lunch menu includes combo dishes.
Talay or Gaeng?
Get used to the terminology. You won’t want to forget some of the highlights from this menu. Talay dishes are seafood and include “pla lad prig” which is a sweet and spicy red snapper and “grapaow goong” which is basil prawns. They are sautéed in Thai sauce with fresh chilies, garlic, caramelized onions, bell peppers and fresh basil leaves. Curry dishes are popular like “gaen gai” or red curry, which is, sautéed chicken, red chili curry paste with coconut milk, bamboo shoots, bell peppers and fresh basil leaves. You can ask the staff to prepare the meal to suit your taste buds in mild, medium, hot or extra hot. Extra hot here, really does mean extra hot. It’s a good idea to keep a cold drink handy.
