Atmosphere is nice and service more than acceptable but the food could at best be called average. Far superior ones are nearby.

THe lunch specials are the best. When you order one dish you get their amazing soup with it. We normally order from them or go there about once a week. I definitely recommend it.

My boyfriend and I came here several times during our stay to Miami Beach. They go the spice just right on both our dishes and the prices are very responsible, considering the area. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Went ahead and picked up some great food here on a rainy day. Good and big portions. Definitely recommend. Seems like a smaller restaurant that mainly does take out.

We went to Thailand almost a year ago and this place came the closes to the food we wanted. The duck was amazing. The soups were great. The squid salad was delicious. I will definitely go back.

If you want delicious Thai this is the place. From the papaya salad to the pad Thai to the sushi and sashimi. Everything here is delicious and since you have to brining your own booze. The bill is always reasonable. Great nice service. I'm a regular every month. Delicious

I have been at Sawadee many times. Try red curry or panang. Best thai curry around. It is very informal and you have to bring your own liquor, but the food is really good. Attention is spotty, but, overall, is a great neighborhood restaurant.

Decided to order straight off the sushi menu and was very pleased. The prices are average, sushi tasted good and service was very good. My only complaint was they were BYOB, so water was all we had...

I love this place - the food is so good. The young men who work there as wait staff and cashiers are so nice. I love all the curry dishes. The sushi is good too. The pad see ew is my favorite. A lil pricey and prices don't match the menu; a lot of upcharges...not accurate.

Thank mbccmba
