The "Thai-ed" is rising in Pinellas County, and Suda Deowpawaropas has a lot to do with it. She's an owner of the King and I and Chiang Mai in St. Petersburg, and at the end of 2012 she launched Sabai at the border of Safety Harbor and Clearwater. It's a bold move in a way: Ban Thai and Thai Spice across the street are the 900-pound gorillas among Thai restaurants in this area. Sabai's food exhibits a vibrancy and verve that puts it pretty high up in Pinellas County's Thai offerings. You have seen this menu before: red, yellow, green, panang and jungle curries; pad Thai and fat, slithery pad se-ew; fresh rolls and spring rolls. But it's the grace with which these are accomplished, paired with a short list of house specialties, that elevates Sabai (a Thai word that translates roughly as "happy" or "comfortable").
