Launch of Sabai Sabai Stratford Upon Avon

18th September 2016Press Releases

sss_int Sabai Sabai opened its third Midlands restaurant, with an official launch party this week, expanding their unique brand of Thai cuisine beyond Britain’s second city, into Stratford-upon-Avon.

The new restaurant in Wood Street hosted an invite-only VIP event with guests from the press, Capital Radio, the RSC as well as local and Birmingham businesspeople.

Torquil and Juree Chidwick, the award-winning husband and wife team behind the brand, already run two highly successful restaurants in Birmingham, opening their first in Moseley twelve years ago, soon followed by another in Harborne in 2011.

Torquil said ‘We’re really excited to be opening in Stratford-upon-Avon, the artistic heart of Warwickshire. The location for the restaurant couldn’t be more perfect. Our other restaurants are in the suburbs, but Wood Street is right in the centre of Stratford, just a stone’s throw from the Royal Shakespeare Company. The process of finding the right location, as well as developing the look and style we wanted inside the Grade-II listed building, took about 12 months and we can’t wait to unveil it.’

Famed designers, Tibbatts Abel created the sumptuous, contemporary interiors for the new 90-cover restaurant. Adam Tibbatts and his team are highly-regarded for their work on Rofuto at Park Regis Hotel, and Saint Paul’s House in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.

Sabai Sabai have recently been blessed with a trio of awards for its tantalising food and luxurious surroundings, as well as the owners’ business expertise including :

  • Best Restaurant  – The Birmingham Awards November 2015
  • Entrepreneur Of The Year for Juree Chidwick at the WM Woman of The Year 2015
  • Best Oriental Restaurant at the Birmingham Food Drink & Hospitality Awards 2016
