The food is very, very average. Not impressed at all at the flavors or portions. What was impressive was how much money they charged. Don't waste your time at this one people.

Chicken Satay was exceptional as was their duck. Very casual serving local college students and downtown crowd. Reasonable pricing. Ben gave great service and is knowledgeable of the food. His suggestions were spot on!

We like Sawatdee for the very good service and good food. If you like Thai and are in St. Cloud this is the only option.

Very good and quite reasonable. Wanted to eat at the White Horse across the street but it was crowded and noisy. Fast service and no hard liqour but every thing was fresh and tasty.

For Thai food in Central Minnesota, Sawatdee is the only option. Luckily, the food here is authentic and it is also very good. Make sure you try the Spring Rolls with beef as they are delicious!

We were greeted by a young woman with flaming red hair. I think we were bothering her. The spring rolls were pretty good bu not hot clear through. When the Pad Thai and Thai Fried Rice arrived were were disappointed with the appearance. The rice was wet with a brown gravy of some sort and not a faint red colored... More

Fast service, fresh delicious food. Fantastic authentic Thai in central Minnesota. The spring rolls and peanut sauce is fantastic! The wings are highly recommended. Large portions great for sharing or taking home for a second meal. Enjoy Sawatdee!

I do love the food here, minus the msg. The atmosphere and the place itself could do well with an overhaul. It feels dirty, but that might be because nothing in the place matches, or makes sense..? Weird trinkets, wall hangings, colors, etc. But again...I go for the food and that's worth going for.
