Sabai Jai sells mainly Isaan food and it is known online for having one of the best Gai Yang in Bangkok. Does it really live up to its reputation?
Sabai Jai Gai Yang is located at Ekamai Soi 3 but don’t be fooled because it’s actually in the middle of Ekamai and definitely not that close to the main junction.
The interior is very simple but they do have a thai style home feel.
Som Tam (Papaya Salad). Light, refreshing and fresh. The only thing lacking is sticky rice (Khao Niao).
Gai Yang (Grilled Chicken), the popular dish here. The chicken here is topped with fried onions, something different from other restaurants. I felt that the chicken was decent but not the best that I have tried in Bangkok.
Moo Yang (Grilled Pork) is good and we finished this easily.
Tom Yam Goong was delicious but we ordered less spicy and it somehow turned out to be a sour soup without any spice. Probably it will be better to stick to the original version.
An overview of all our dishes!
Goong Ob Woonsen was disappointing though because it’s very dry. We couldn’t finish this and this turned out to be the most expensive dish among our orders.
