Tasty dinner and very friendly staff

We had a dinner with friends on a Tuesday evening. We were welcomed nicely and taken care off through the whole evening. The food is very tasty and sets for two people are a very good option, a lot of food and possibility to try different dishes. Recommended!

We visited Sawadee for dinner on a quiet Tuesday night. And as lots of other guests already have written, we were nicely surprised by Sawadee. First of all the waiter was friendly (a bit a shy young guy, but that doesn't matter) who gave us good advice about the menu. The food was really good; fresh, crispy vegetables, nice noodles,...

We hadn't booked and it was Friday night and the restaurant was very busy but as we looked and checked and went to walk away something called us back. We was greeted at the entrance warmly even though we had no reservation. The staff was very polite and the young lady serving us was exceptional. Very sweet and very engaging.... More

On the lookout for supper we found this corner restaurant and happy faces inside. Has a very good two course meal for roughly £18 each.

Close to the Ranelagh music pub. Good on Sunday evening for three simple bowls of Tom Yum soup, a plate/bowl each of one of the Thai curry sauce, some coconut rice and a bottle of Rose. Not spectacular but full and properly flavoured, pleasant dining room and polite and efficient staff. Only gripe was that the bill included a 10%... More

This is a real find for supper on St. James's Street, favoured by locals and tourists alike. The staff are super friendly and make you feel at home from the moment you walk in. The food is great and one of my favourite dishes anywhere is their Pad Thai. Lots of other great dishes too. I always say I will... More

We was over visiting a relative in hospital, and asked around for some good restaurants. I'd never had any Thai food before, but after this I will certainly be having more, the welcome, service, food and price was great. I shall be back over to see you again

Our hotel had included this as one of the recommended places to eat, in their brochure, so we decided to try it. We were glad we did! The food as well as the atmosphere here is great and the service is good. The prices are reasonable too.

We were given a very friendly welcome. The restaurant was busy but we didn't have to wait long for well cooked Thai food. Well presented and flavoursome. Mixed starters followed by Beef massaman, chicken with cashews, Pak choi and rice.
