In a neighbourhood that becomes more trendy and modern every day, Sabai Jai Gai Yang is a throwback to the old school Thai eatery. This massive place sprawls over an entire corner, with large open air seating, plus a spacious air-con dining section as well. It's a typical Isan northeastern restaurant, with heaping plates of som tam salad, larb meat salads, and plenty of grilled pork and chicken ruling the dining selections, but they also have a fairly wide selection of regular Thai and even super spicy southern Thai dishes like kua kling ground chicken or pork, plus the infamous sataw stink beans, which require having lots of cold beer at arm's length to handle the spiceometer. While the prices here are not dirt cheap for an Isan restaurant, nor can you expect all the dishes to be winners with over 1000 diners packed in regularly, it is a value eating option for fashionable Ekamai and almost everyone can find something they like on the menu, and the restaurant is very tourist friendly, with picture menus and English included, and a lot of foreigners, both visitors and expats, come here precisely for that reason.
- Ekamai's Best Restaurants: "It's either a 10-15 minute walk up here from Sukhumvit, or else take the sky train to Ekamai and hop in a taxi up to Soi 1."
- Best for Ekamai's Best Restaurants Because: For Isan food in Ekamai, where else is there but Sabai Jai Gai Yang!
