Went here with my brother, his girlfriend and my wife for my brothers birthday. My brothers girlfriend is from Thailand and said this place make her think of home as it is authentic. What better compliment can a restaurant get? The service was 1st class and the food came fast, hot and best of all delicious. Would recommend to anyone... More

We came across this fab place on trip advisor, whilst looking for somewhere nice to eat. It's a little gem, in what appears to be a run down area of town... The restaurant itself is a little tatty, but the brilliant staff, reasonably priced wine and fantastic food more than make up for the decor. We just wish we didn't... More

Another birthday to celebrate and we opted for Sawasdee again. My wife is Thai and a rather excellent cook and thus an arch-critic of Thai cuisine. I too have spent several years in Thailand and know what's good and what aint. Sawasdee serves lovely quality Thai food in a small but relaxing restaurant in central Birkenhead. Staff (all Thai) are... More

My first visit and definitely won't be my last. We booked a table for 6pm, when it opened for dinner. By 7pm the restaurant was full, everyone had booked. Any that hadn't were turned away. The ladies who work there make the meal more enjoyable, so friendly but unobtrusive. The food - delicious, cooked to order, we had a pause... More

Absolutely brilliant Thai food served and cooked by very friendly and respectful staff. Authentic as you can find outside of Thailand. Don't think I'll be happy until I've tried the whole menu.

Having never tried Thai food I was a little apprehensive initially but was soon won over and will certainly be back again. The interior is very quaint and the staff are attentive. Looking forward to another visit.

Dined here on a weekend evening. Whilst we enjoyed attentive service, we found the portion sizes to be smaller than average and overpriced. (We are used to London prices!)

Have eaten in the restaurant now a number of times for lunch and dinner but now also had takeaway - fantastic authentic flavours - one of the few Thai restaurants I have eaten in that taste so similar to food I had whilst living in Thailand. Lovely staff also make the experience so enjoyable.
