Sabai Sabai - Church & Dundas

Walking by Church & Dundas today and there's a new Thai resto opening by Chef Nuit, as per the hand written sign in the windows. Couldn't catch the name, but it's in the former Wimpey's Diner space. Liquor license app is also up. Hopefully opening soon! The area needs a stellar Thai resto!

    I read about it in that BlogTO article but between that article and a PostCity one there wasn't much concrete information. Wasn't clear if she was just designing the menu or becoming the chef there so was waiting for some clarification. If anyone knows more it would be interesting to know how it will effect KSR.

      I meant to say that "The Grid" article.

      Here is the post city article that makes it sound like she is more invovled:

      It is weird because those two articles went out at around the same time but the information is very different. One said that the owners wanted to remain secret, while the other posted the names of the owners. One says she is designing the menu, and another says she is chef.

    2. I thought she was just helping set things up as per the blog TO bit... but maybe that's changed?

        That's what I thought as well.

          she's just setting it up and will be involved heavily with the menu.

            Chef Nuit is also part owner. Found this out when I stopped to speak with the owner/manager, Jason

        2. Quick update on the opening - I spoke with the owner, Jason, last week while walking by. Apparently they are aiming for a soft launch this Friday (tomorrow) but will not have a liquor license as of then.

            The name of the restaurant is Sabai Sabai Kitchen and Bar, and they are indeed open today at 225 Church St. So far they don't have a website but they have a Facebook page.

              I know.I read that they were opening today on another site. I searched for the website and couldn't find it. Can't wait to find out more about this place.

          2. "The food will be different from anything offered at Sukothai or Khao San Road. "

            Let's hope so. Both those restaurants have very similar and very static menus. There's so much Thai food left to explore!

            1. I walked by yesterday and took a photo of their "Soft Launch Menu". Here it is.
