Is Leschi’s Sabai Thai Gone For Good?


Neighbors have been wondering about the operating status of Leschi’s resident Thai restaurant, Sabai, reporting that it closed suddenly in mid-February. A little digging did not unearth much new information about the restaurant, as its website has been deactivated and its listed phone number rings through to neighboring BluWater Bistro. Its prime waterfront location and positive diner reviews have us hoping it will reopen. Leave us a comment if you have any information about its closing or possible reopening.
