We were very tired and only had half our family , so we got everything to go . The service couldn't have been friendlier . They helped us as we looked for items on the menu . They had us sit at a table and brought us water and kept checking on us . We felt pampered and we were... More

Went last night with a group of friend and we were disappointed by the food. The portions are generous, may that's why people seems to like it. The service was good but the food was lacking of flavours. The Pad_Thai were greasy but ok. The spring rolls were fat and promising bit filled only with noodles; no meat or vegetables... More

I was in town traveling for business and saw that this was a highly rated Thai restaurant nearby. The food and service were fantastic. I always try Pad Thai and all Thai restaurants and this one ranked in the top 3 I've ever had. The chicken and pork satay were just great. The house red wine was a hit for... More

Have been going to this restaurant for 20 years. The food is great. Service is great. We see some of the same people that we saw 20 years ago. When the restaurant is full it is very noisy so not good for a romantic dinner for two. The bottle of Oak Bay Gewürztraminer was not a good choice. Previously, they... More

The best thai food in the city comes with a line out the door. Usually I go on Thursday at opening and don't have an issue, but wait an hour and you will be waiting for someone else to leave. The classics are delicious and the service prompt. Favorites are the red curry and pad Thai, but ask for a... More

We ordered the fish panang curry, shrimp cakes, Tom yum soup, pad Thai and sliced beef and everything tasted very decent. The flavours were good and the meats were all very soft and tender. The only downside to the restaurant is that the flavours don't pop out like the Thai food that we had in Thailand, but the food is... More

The fact that it smelled great and was full, was a good sign. Tonight, we went out with friends who have eaten Thai food in Thailand and they gave it 2 thumbs up. We ordered the curry, tiger beef, stuffed chicken wings, chicken fried rice and springs rolls, all of it was excellent. The spicy sauces were spicy for our... More

Thai food outside of Thailand is almost never authentic. There are few exceptions, and one of them is in Portland, OR. That said, the food here is decent. The ambiance is nice and you will enjoy your food here. The selections are many and varied. The one item we ordered that I did not like was the shrimp fritters appetizer.... More

We have friends who are regulars at Sawasdee and receive the royal treatment there, and it's with them that we've visited Sawasdee at least a dozen times over the years. The food is reliably good and if anything has improved over time. Our usual orders include the stuffed chicken wings, sautéed spinach, panang curry, pad thai (choose the tamarind sauce),... More
