This is one of our regular haunts. Friendly, quiet, two small rooms; I prefer the original one on the left that has no TVs, but the TVs are never loud. Great Thai restaurant, one of my favorites. I always get the pad Thai vegetarian and it is as good as it gets. Great noodles, flavor, and veggies. My wife tries... More

Went there with a huge team for a casual lunch. Wanted to break the monotony from office and have a relaxed lunch as well as build a relationship with the team. Place was fine had excellent food and the staff was amazing.

I didn't know that I liked Thai food until I dined at Sawasdee. The food, wait staff and prices are great. The spring rolls are the best anywhere. I like the "none to Thai hot" choice in spice/heat level. The food is always fresh. Excellent wine list!!

I've eaten here many times and it never disappoints. the spring rolls are particularly good, as is the sticky rice with custard for desert. As far as main dishes, everything i've had is either really good or great. The owner is very nice and involved and always says hi and talks to us and makes the kids feel very special.

I tried Sawasdee today over the place I normally go to because a coworker recommended it. I really enjoyed it. I ordered "hot" and it was more mild, so next time I will order "Thai hot." Their lunch specials come with soup, salad or spring roll (choose 2). I will definitely return.

We usually go here when we want Thai food. It is always good. So I've come to think of it as average. It is toned down for the American taste. I've had better in England and throughout Asia. But that's to be expected.

This is Thais food the way Thai food should be. Original Thai home cookin'! The owner is a hard working soul, who is always there, and always wonderful! Decent dining area. Recently... More
