Sabai Sabai Simply Thai - Report

I had a chance to visit Sabai Sabai this week for 1 meal while passing through Germantown on business. My first impression is that this is a good solid Thai restaurant. My entree was the Floating Market Noodle Soup you mentioned, which was surprisingly similar to what I've had at night markets in Thailand. If you don't like this, it might just be that you don't like this entree in general. In general the street food portion of the menu looked most attractive simply because those dishes are hard to find elsewhere in my experience. I can get laab and curry anywhere, but kao kha moo isn't something I see everyday. For dessert, try their Taro dessert with their own coconut ice cream. The ice cream was fantastic.

Best Omakase (L.A.)

Try Nishi-Ya in Glendale. The quality of the fish was outstanding, in the same league as Kaito in Encinitas. My girlfriend and I were so impressed that we had a tough time telling the chef to stop. I counted the number of plates, and we both had 11 items before surrendering. The price was $180 plus tip for 2 people, including sake. Don't go there if you're starving.

I haven't tried Mori's or Zo's, so I'll defer when it comes to telling you which is best.

Best non-chain reasonably-priced Real Chili Joint/Steakhouse that's Kid Friendly

I concur, I specifically went to Tolbert's to try the chili. It was OK, but not earth-shattering. I expected it to be much better since it has lots of mentions in the boards.
