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

I have been a regular patron of the Sawasdee for over 20years. I've tried many other Thai restaurants in the city but they are hands down, my favourite. The food is consistently delicious, the menu has a great selection, the service efficient. Some of the wait staff have been there since forever and still manage to exude warmth, charm and... More

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
