I went to Sawadika with a group of friends for dinner after the restaurant we had planned to go to was full. Sawadika was over the road and was pretty quiet so we went there instead. The food was nice and reasonably priced, but we...More

The food was very well-presented and tasted very good. The price was good and I would definitely recommend Sawadika Fine Thai Restaurant. My own criticism is that, for wheelchair users, I wasn't sure how they would get to the toilet down a stair case. The...More

We came across this lovely restaurant whilst walking around the city and thought we'd give it a try. We had a lovely meal and the service was excellent. We would definitely dine here again if we were in the area.

We had lunch here expecting a great thai experience but there was nothing Thai about this restaurant other then the name. We were expecting thai staff for service but no one.

Was quite impressed by Sawadika when I recently visited. The starters were good and the sea bass excellent. Service was decent and the place had a good atmosphere. Recommended.

Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet
cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or
quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on
the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
practically any taste or budget. With major
attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House
