We are a fully licensed and air conditioned restaurant located in the heart of Headingley on North Lane opposite Trio's Bar, close to the Headingley Carnegie Stadium and just a few minutes from Leeds city centre. The words Thai Sabai mean ‘a feeling of well-being, a place to relax', a phrase that encapsulates our philosophy of simple décor and friendly attentive service combined with exquisitely flavoured authentic Thai cuisine. The menu is extensive with two full pages of vegetarian options, we also cater for gluten free diets and many of our dishes would be suitable for vegans. We have a good selection of homemade ice creams and alternatives to the more traditional Thai desserts. You will find the menu prices surprisingly reasonable and the wine list has been carefully chosen to compliment and compete with the food. A journey where old East meets new West in a blend of Thai cuisine and culture. Perfect for any occasion, from a quick bite to an evening meal with friends, our restaurant provides an experience you’ll want to enjoy again and again. You can also enjoy our food at home or in the office, we offer takeaway to collect or ask about our takeaway delivery service. (Takeaway menu is discounted by around 10%).
