    Great atmosphere, great food, and, great service. After a bit of a delay getting us seated, the manager came by to apologize and offer a round of drinks on the house. This was not necessary but very much appreciated. Highly recommend the restaurant but be prepared to wait a bit even with a reservation. It's obviously a neighborhood gem.

    Food was really good. The ambiance was lacking. The space is too crowded. Too many tables crammed in. My partner kept getting banged into by the person sitting behind her at the next table. Also there was a very strange sound system - lots of bass and it's all you could year above the din of the crowd and it was very disconcerting. I will not go back in person as the ambiance was bad but the main courses we each had where very good.

    Service was disappointing. I ordered the duck curry and received a completely different dish. It wasn't good and the server didn't return until my family had finished their food. I didn't eat my dish after trying it and not finding it to my liking. Instead of fixing the problem, I received 20% off of a dish I didn't ask for that ended up in the trash. Super disappointing, I wouldn't return.

    Haven't been here in some time and enjoyed my return. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the staff were all quite lovely and accommodating. The food was very fresh and artfully presented. A bit expensive for the portion size. Can get very noisy. Overall, it was a lovely experience and I hope to return if in the neighborhood.

    Good Thai cuisine in a convenient location. The staff is very polite. The sea bass and duck are the best options but menu is quite limited. IMO the cocktails aren't special.

    We passed by on Saturday evening and placed was jammed so came back on Sunday but they were closed for a staff party so relieved to finally get in on a Monday evening. It was delicious Thai food w nice service. A bit pricey (whole crispy fish was $36!) but I would come back.

    The service at Sabai Thai was overall lovely. I liked the calm ambiance. My only issue was I marked my reservation as a birthday, please sing to me. And they didn't do that, probably unintentional and busy on a Friday night or perhaps a website glitch. Would recommend people to directly ask the servers about birthday singing rather than rely on the special notes on reservation. Otherwise, they were friendly towards accommodating a big group (even called the day of to make sure we could do the reservation) and service was nice, food was good, organized environment. Thanks!

    Food was great. The ambiance is outstanding for a weekend in NYC. The only reason I give this 4 stars is because they moved our reservation by half an hour due to availability, just 2 hours before the set time, after confirming it twice before.
