Fans of noted Thai chef Eddy Thretipthuangsin now have a way to satisfy their cravings for the chef’s most popular Asian dishes. Thretipthuangsin, who is normally referred to as “Chef Eddy,” has opened Sai Fine Asian Bistro in Colleyville. The restaurant is open daily for dinner beginning at 5 p.m. Currently, the restaurant is BYOB, but plans to add a full offering of beer, wine and craft cocktails beginning next month.
Sai Fine Asian Bistro brings some of Chef Eddy’s most popular culinary creations together with new interpretations of Asian favorites. Guests at Sai begin with a wide array of starters, including decadent Lobster Wontons, Crispy Brussels Sprouts or a Thai-inspired Calamari. Then, the chef offers two different ways to experience entrees. The ‘Only at Sai’ area of the menu brings back many of Eddy’s most popular entrees, including his Massaman Short Rib, Truffle Miso Salmon and Duck Confit.
The ‘From the Street’ section showcases street food and typical noodle dishes from various cuisines, including Chef Eddy’s popular Pad Thai, Malaysian Curry Laksa Noodles, Peking Duck Fried Rice and Yakisoba. Those with a sweet tooth can satisfy cravings with a Crispy Banana Wonton, Lemongrass Panna Cotta or Warm Apple Bread Pudding.
When asked why he decided to open Sai in Colleyville, Chef Eddy explained that the suburb reminds him of several places he’s lived in the past. “Colleyville offers the feel and charm of a small town with all of the smart sophistication of the big city,” notes Thretipthuangsin.
The restaurant is approximately 5,000 square feet and offers seating for 130 diners, including a great private dining space.
