Thai Sabai in Headingley
Having been found in the area for over ten years, Thai Sabai has developed an outstanding reputation for their creatively designed dishes as well as winning a number of industry awards. In 2010, they won the prestigious Oliver Award for Best Oriental restaurant, which of course is on display within the charming interior of this often bustling restaurant.
Thai Sabai is often cited as a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of one of Leeds busiest suburbs. Inside, you’ll find an enchanting décor which is as tranquil as it is inviting. Across the walls and various points around the restaurant you can see trinkets and reminders of Thailand and combined with the low lighting and charming reception really transports guests.
They have an extensive and eclectic menu, full of intriguing sounding dishes of both the more well known aspects of Thai cuisine along with the more adventurous side of the cuisine. When you arrive, you’ll be met warmly and escorted to your table. You’ll have the chance to order a variety of drinks including Thai beer.
Dishes on the menu include Peak Gai Yad Sai, which is Chicken Wings boned and stuffer with seasoned minced chicken, vermicelli and black fungus mushroom, steamed then crispy friend and served with a dip. As you can probably ascertain from that description, Thai Sabai offers a variety of complex and intricately put together dishes, always with a focus on freshness and quality. The flavours are aromatic and offer a feast for not only your taste buds, but also your nostrils and eyes.
Main courses are very reasonably priced, with dishes starting at £6.95. What’s more, they offer an early bird menu, which is available before 7pm Tuesday to Sunday and includes two courses and a drink (soft drink, hot drink, Thai beer or a glass of wine.) Other featured dishes on the menu included Pad Prig Sod Nua, which is Stir Fried Beef with onion, peppers, chili, sweet basil and brown bean sauce.
Of course, you can find Thai Green Curry here, but their menu is inviting and we urge you to push your boundaries and try something new!
