Reserve your Table!

Soaring ceilings and a riot of primary colors make Café Sage a welcoming spot on this busy Financial District strip. While the bright reds, blues, and yellows that make up the nursery-school renditions of giant flowers and plants impart a cheery sensibility, the cuisine is a downer.

Defanged, neutered Thai specialties taste mostly of sweetener and cooking oil. At lunch, when the place gets frenzied, at least food seems fresh. Come dinnertime, when Café Sage empties along with the neighborhood, appetizers and mains feel reheated, tired.

A grilled squid starter arrives tough and tasteless; non-Thai summer rolls are both chewy and limp. If you’re shopping at Century 21 up the block and not in the mood for Zen Palate’s virtuous vegetarian cuisine next door, Café Sage is an acceptable option. Otherwise you’re better off making the hike to find something better at the South Street Seaport.

Testimonials

I have been coming here for nearly 5 years. For the FiDi area you will NOT find better Thai food than this . Skip going to Bennys and have a nice, quiet, enjoyable experience at Cafe Sage.

This place is the holy grail if you are a Thai fanatic. First, the Beef w/ basil is the best here. The chicken coconut soup is okay (it used to be great). The satay (beef) is excellent.

Great Thai food. Inexpensive, healthy and wonderfully tasty. I had the Chicken Pad Thai. Hmm Hmm Good. Right down the street from my apartment. Very casual atmosphere.

I didn't like any Thai downtown until I tried Cafe Sage. I have ordered from them at least 10 times now and the food has always been excellent. It's real authentic Thai food. The gentleman that takes phone orders is kind and very polite. The order always arrives within 30 minutes.
