This was pretty standard Thai and the food was decent. I like my Thai food spicy and asked for 3 star on a 1-4 star scale and what i got was 1 star so that was disappointing. Also used to getting a soup or salad before our meal and that is not standard at this restaurant. Also they charged me... More

This has been a local favorite but lately has fallen out of favour. Sawasdee has a great selection of flavourful thai dishes. But here's my beef with Sawasdee...there's barely any beef in their dishes (or rather, chicken and shrimps). We recently ordered green curry and pad thai from there and got just a few slivers of chicken and barely any... More

We ate here on the recommendation of our son and daughter-in-law, and were very pleased with everything about the meal. Very tasty food, excellent service, and all at a reasonable price. I would have to say it was among the best Thai food we have ever had. We will definitely plan to go back again on our next visit to... More

We tried to find good Thai restaurant around. We found one over Trip advisor. Food was excellent, service was good. To all who likes Thai I recommend N18a and 14

Although Sawasdee has been open for almost 30 years, we happened upon it by chance looking for a quick supper before a 7:30 p.m. event at the Little Mountain Gallery nearby. The bright green facade caught our eye and, although the restaurant was only half full at 6:30, we were told a table was conditional on being out by 7:00.... More

Jasmine Tea, Thai spring rolls, a pad see ew with beef and a red curry with tofu and vegetables with coconut rice. As the place was packed it took a little while before... More

We have been going to this restaurant for 25yrs and the quality has definitely fallen. The fabulous Pad Thai we used to enjoy now is a sloppy gloopy version. The prawns have been over cooked the last couple of times we were there. This is very disappointing as we were regulars at this restaurant and now I hesitate to go... More

Had a fabulous meal here. Restaurant was full on a Tuesday evening with a waiting line so we booked our space and went for a pre dinner drink. We returned, got our table straight away and ordered our food from the extensive menu. I had the sweet & sour chicken and my partner had the crying tiger beef. Both were... More

We visited Vancouver and truly enjoy thai food.....this restuarant was busy with local customers and the Pad Tai was the best I have ever had. In fact the experience was so good we returned for our last night in Vancouver. Try it you'll love it, I guarantee it!
