I ordered food for pick-up, and service was fast and the staff were friendly. My meal (Pad-Si-Ew-Moo) was delicious! Even in a take-out container, presentation was taken into consideration, which I appreciate. Will definitely order again!

We were a group of 5 girls celebrating our friend's birthday. It is BYOB which is always great. It is small and simple inside but you can smell the delicious food as soon as you walk inside. Service is slow but only because they only have a few waitstaff for the whole place. We went on a Friday and they... More

This modest little neighborhood place dishes up some yummy Thai food. The satay appetizer was flavorful, the panang curry salmon was absolutely delicious. Noodles and curries ate fresh and well made. It's BYOB and a nice, unpretentious place.

The food here was so rich and flavorful...more than we ever expected based on Thai restaurants we've eaten elsewhere. I had the Pad-Him-Ma-Pann, which included shrimp and chicken with cashew nuts, bell peppers, onions, carrots, and broccoli in an amazing roasted chili soy sauce. I could've eaten 3 more servings of it, it was so good. My guest enjoyed the... More

I would CAUTION anyone about waiting for a dining experience at this restaurant. I waited over an hour, with no line or other customers waiting for a table, simply to be "greeted" by an aggressive and hostile employee who barked at me to leave the area outside of the restaurant, where I had waited for 1hr 20 mins because, according...

It is easy to spend a lot of money on mediocre food in this part of the city. When you are tired of small portions at amped up prices, come to Sawatdee. The portions are not huge, but very adequate for most appetites. I have eaten at many Thai restaurants and was pleasantly surprised at the unique recipes used here.... More

This was my second try at Sawatdee and it was an even worse experience than the first. The first time the food was mediocre and the portion size was pretty small for the price. The 2nd time we went with five people and the restaurant was just clearing out from a private party. It was 23 degrees F outside and... More

Our daughter, Bridget, really likes this place and recommended it when we asked if she would care to join us on a recent autumn evening for dinner. It is just a short seven blocks from our home, and though I was rather tired after a long day, we walked there in just a few minutes. The corner location is small... More

Sawatdee is my go to thai restaurant in my area. The food is nothing extraordinary but they certainly do a solid rendition of the typical thai curry/noodle dishes. It is definitely not spicy enough for my tastes and the meats are a bit flavorless as I'm pretty certain they have them already cooked and just toss them into the sauce... More
