Two decades of Sabai Sabai

Established in 2003,Sabai Sabai has established itself as a beloved destination for food enthusiasts across the West Midlands.

This new Solihull location adds to the brand’s commitment to offering a truly unforgettable culinary experience. Having opened their first site in Moseley Village in 2003, the Harborne restaurant launched in 2012, followed by one in the idyllic tourist town of Stratford Upon Avon in 2017 and then Waterloo Street in Birmingham city centre in 2018.

The Solihull restaurant’s interior design is a captivating blend of modern elegance and Thai cultural elements, designed by Tibbatts Able - the company behind the interior of Chef Tom Kerridge’s Hand & Flowers in Marlow.  Juree and Torquil dedicated much of their own time into perfecting the authentic Thai features including installing bamboo fishing traps which were imported from Thailand and constructed on site. The décor is a captivating blend of modern elegance and Thai cultural elements such as ceramic wall features and traditional Thai murals hand-painted by Daniel Lopez, bringing the restaurant to life.
