I love Thai food and this is great Thai food. I recommend the pineapple Curry, it's awesome. Sawadee is always busy, I guess that's a good sign that I'm not the only one who loves it.

Skiers you have to stop here to get your carb fix and refuel. All the dishes were amazing. Great flavors and atmosphere. The staff was great and I will come back here.

Sawadee is great Thai with large portions good to share this is the fanciest Thai place in Utah. The fresh spring rolls say mint which is essential to the best but couldn't find it.

We had a party of 7 and the staff at Sawadee was very accommodating. Everyone got a salad with a type of Thai peanut dressing. We ate there for lunch and you can get an entree split into two items off of the menu. We tried a wide variety of items and everyone loved theirs. We also tried the fried... More

I came here 2 nights back to back to try a bunch of items as I was super excited about the menu and had heard really good things about it. The first night I got pad Thai, which everyone said was amazing. I eat Thai all of the time so for me this dish was OK, I've had better and... More

I really like Thai food. I have sampled it in many places, but this is my "go to" place for Thai food. I have never tasted any better. Whenever I run across visitors to my city looking for a good restaurant I ask them if they like Thai food. If they like it I always put this on the top... More

Our first visit and we were really looking forward to it, as we both love Thai food. First, the parking is convenient, the ambiance nice, though my partner has back issues and found the hard wood chairs uncomfortable. The service was BLAZING fast. I mean, our appetizer was at the table in minutes and (unfortunately) the first of our two... More

The locale, decor, service and menu are all great. We were looking forward to a wonderful meal based on the positive reviews. But while portions were huge and well priced, we found that the food was very sweet--more like the Thai food you get in Indonesia than in Thailand. We accordingly left much of what we ordered behind.
