I passed this restaurant countless time when I shop for groceries at Plaza Central ( not the Sentral train station la..but the building next to Pearl International Hotel, Old Klang Road) , but never crossed my mind to have a meal here, it’s like that lo, things that you see all the time, it’s sorta become  part of the furniture liao ..err..a bit like family members 😀

As we stepped into Sabye -Sabye ( which means – pleasant, good, well) , we were greeted by a friendly waitress clad in Thai Silk outfit, we were shown to our table. At the back portion  of the restaurant, there are 3 compartments ( opened, though)  serving as private rooms of some sort.


Even before placing our orders, another waitress came by our table and offered us the free dessert –  steamed tapioca with coconut milk, it was not too bad, although i would liked it better if the tapioca  were softer ( but no matter how, free things are always welcomed lor).


 The menu include ( there are more on the actual menu lah, I actually copied more than what I listed below, but err..i couldn’t even read  some of my writing)  :

Soup : tom yam seafood, fish fillet (both RM6/pax) or prawns (RM7) ; Sharkfin + crab meat ( RM28)

Salad: mango salad, lemongrass,  four angle bean, glass noodles, chicken feet, glass noodles prawn, petai prawns

Drinks : coconut, fresh juices, tea, coffee

Dessert : Tap Tim krob , Thai style jelly, Thai ABC, sticky rice with mango

For salad, the waitress recommended the mango salad or the chicken feet, but we decided to go with lemongrass salad (RM10)  (we asked for more details about the dish and  the waitress had to go to the kitchen and asked the cook about it, because not that many people order this) Well, I tell you haa….please order this dish if you do visit Sabye Sabye, it’s a wonderful dish…the fresh flavour of lemon grass, plus peanuts, crunchy dried shrimps, onions, chili padi, the sweet, sour, pedas HMMMMM…very good !


We weren’t feeling very generous that day, so opted for fried rice and noodles . I like petai and had never tasted petai fried rice (RM8.80), when the dish arrive, it doesn’t look that impressive ( don’t see that much of ingredients) and only a few thinly cut petai, but taking my first mouthful-the distinct taste  of the smelly beans (petai)  blended in very well with the fried rice and as I dig deeper into the pile of rice, there were bigger pieces of petai waiting to be interesting dish, no regrets in ordering this.


The Thai style Char koay teow (RM7.80) appeared all wrapped up in fried omelet  ( like the Pattaya friend rice version) and around this little bundle, are cucumber slices, raw taugeh, spring onions, chili powder and  chopped peanuts. It taste like regular koay teow, with  a lot of chicken slices in the noodles.  


Overall , a pretty enjoyable meal, still reminiscing about the lemongrass salad..Sabye Sabye
