Saab Sis Thai opens in Royal Oak

There are plenty of Thai restaurants to choose from in metro Detroit, however, Saab Sis Thai owner Rihana Yenpanya claims that her restaurant is different from the rest. Yenpanya was born in Thailand and came to the U.S. while she was still in high school. She opened Saab Thai Sis with her sister and brother-in law, who also serve as chefs. “What really makes us different is that we serve authentic Thai food – not the American version of Thai food. I find other (restaurant dishes) to be too sweet and a different consistency,” she said. Saab Sis Thai uses the freshest ingredients along with family recipes inspired from the family’s rich Thai heritage that have been passed down through the generations. Signature dishes include Pad Thai – stir fried noodles with tofu, bean sprouts, green onions and eggs with Saab Sis’s special tamarind sauce and Drunken Noodles, which is a stir-fried wide rice noodle with green & red peppers, basil, onions, carrots and Saab Sis’s spicy Thai garlic sauce. The cozy eatery, which is decorated in vibrant colors, floral fabric pillows and exposed brick accent walls, has seating for up to 55 patrons. 515 S. Lafayette Avenue, Royal Oak
