for some reasons there aren't a lot of authentic thai restaurants in santa cruz. sabieng thai, however, seems to be one of the very few places in the city that serves curry that's NOT watered down (i believe there might be another place as well, but i have yet to find another). although the portions are a bit small for the price, this is probably the best place you're gonna find great curry.
Pros: curries, parking, great food in general
Cons: small portions for price
