Sabai Thai: Thai Eats in Guildford
I’m sure there are plenty of good restaurants in Surrey… I just don’t have the need or desire to spend much time in the area. Well, we found ourselves in a 2 hour lineup for a book signing near Guildford one Saturday and decided to get some food in the area afterwards. That’s how we ended up at Sabai Thai.
As the name suggests, Sabai Thai is a Thai restaurant and it’s located at the corner of 104 Ave and 150 Street, right next to Guildford Town Centre. This restaurant is fairly small and the tables are cramped. As it was a Saturday night, the restaurant was pretty full except for a few tables near the windows. Unfortunately, these seats weren’t that comfortable as they were extremely deep and low making it difficult to eat at the equally short table.
We were a bit worried that they wouldn’t be able to fit all of our dishes on our table but we somehow managed to squeeze everything in.
We stuck with a few classic dishes including the Pad Thai ($16) made with prawns, tofu, green onions, and crunchy bean sprouts and ground peanuts.
The Green Curry Chicken ($16) arrived with a particularly intense hue of green (similar to the one I had at Thai Box 2Go). It was fairly good with a light heat level and a creamy coconut milk sauce mixed with green curry paste (which no doubt was the reason for the green colour). Eggplant, peppers, sweet basil and peas round out this dish.
Last up was the Deep Fried Whole Tilapia ($18) served with peppers, sweet basil, and a spicy sauce. There’s not a whole lot of meat on this fish but I liked the spicy sauce.
Overall, the food was fairly good (mainly catering to the western palate) but the service was quite lacking (I suppose that was because they didn’t have enough servers working).
