About Sabai

Sabai’s mission is to act as a tranquil escape for guests with specially curated menus that offer a unique twist on traditional Thai dishes.

Our story

Serving NYC AN elevated Thai experience since 2018

The Thai word sabai means happy in English, which is why we pride ourselves on bringing our guests happiness through superior service and flavors that cannot be found anywhere else. Our philosophy is to inform, educate, and deliver the cuisine of Thailand’s four regions while extending Thai hospitality to our New York City guests. 

Since opening in 2018, Sabai has become the premier destination for a curated Thai experience in New York City. Presenting a modern twist on classic Thai flavors, Sabai unifies upscale dining with traditional Thai hospitality and gastronomy.

The Restaurant

Sabai's interior spans across 2,300-square-feet in East Midtown Manhattan. Our space is designed with an eye-catching bar and unique backdrop that resembles the facade of Thai temples. Gorgeous Thepphanom statues and Thai artworks surround the restaurant, taking diners to a cultural and dining experience.

Today, the team at Sabai is committed to serving artisanal cocktail and mocktail creations, delicious food, and the best customer service in the city. Whether you need a spot for lunch meetings, intimate dinners, or celebratory gatherings, we invite you to experience Thai cuisine and hospitality at its best.
