New Restaurant Sabor Colibri Suprises and Delights

Ladda's Thai may be no more, but what has replaced it is delighting Redwood City diners.

 

Thai food lovers may be disappointed to learn that Ladda's Thai in downtown Redwood City has closed.

However, many are finding a pleasant surprise in what now sits in its place - brand new restaurant, Sabor Colibri.

Particularly with the recent , fans of Mexican food can't seem to say enough good things about Sabor's delicious food, heaping portions, and reasonable prices.

However, the menu is not limited to Mexican dishes - you'll also find many entrees from many other types of international cuisine, as well.

"There are so many dishes to choose from - some Mexican, some Cuban, some Puerta Rican, and all tasty," wrote Corinne K. of Redwood City on the restaurant's Yelp.com page.

Corinne raved about the complimentary items brought to her table upon being seated, as well.

"Before you even order, they bring you chips and salsa as well as a delicious guacalmole dip and a bean dip," she wrote. "Then comes a complimentary bowl of soup!  Then they take your order."

"[Sabor Colibri] should be on everyone's list. The prices are not to be beat.  My entree was only $8 and I had to get a doggy bag," she continued. "So, let's support our new restaurants and keep this gem around!"

In addition to the range of cuisine choices, many of the restaurant's earliest customers - Sabor Colibri just opened the first week of December - are raving about the freshness and quality of the food.

"The quality of the food motivates me to give an unequivocal five stars," wrote Yelp.com fan James L. of Redwood City. "Stop by and check out their menu when you can; they have a definite South American influence in their selection that is a welcome change-up from the usual places downtown."

Customers are complimenting the friendliness of the wait staff and chef, as well.

"My highest compliments to the chef, who really enjoys pleasing the palates of all of his customers!" wrote reviewer Yolanda G.

Sabor Colibri is located at 2053-B Broadway St. in downtown Redwood City. Call 650-364-3430.

The side-alley location didn't help but honestly, Ladda's food was pretty bad and RWC's standard for Thai food is already low. Sabor is a welcome improvement, their food's been consistently good the few times I've ordered from them.

Roger, not sure what you consider good Thai ... but have you tried Karakade on the corner of Woodside and Central? It's a low-key place, but we've had some excellent meals there.

We've liked Karakade and also Thai House on El Camino.

I haven't, no! Thanks for the suggestion. :)

Haven't been to Thai House (El Camino at Chestnut) in a long while, but I recall it being good too. I'm guessing it has been there for over 15 years already.

Sabor Colibri is indeed a welcome addition to downtown RWC dining---just off Broadway adjacent to parking heaven, the cozy restaurant beckons visitors to see its cheery bistro-like interior with laid-back ambience. The welcoming ready-to-please staff brings homemade chips and salsa plus soup tableside before the menu. Diverse Mexican, Cuban, Puerta Rican dishes are listed and, if desired, wine/beer is also available. What's surprising is that such high quality food preparation, presentation and service arrives with such low prices---especially in a down-economy, this place is amazing. Got a family? Got a date? Gotta go to Sabor Colibri!

When my family visited us from Maryland, we ventured into Sabor Colibri. What a delightful surprise! The food was excellent and plentiful. Each of us had a different dish that we passed around so all could taste. Each dish was really good. And the service was also excellent. Can't wait to return!

Totally agree!
