I visited Sawadee for the second time yesterday. I had previously been in for a quick lunch a number of months back and was impressed so I promised myself I would return with my partner for dinner on our next visit to Brighton. So as planned we headed over and got stuck in. We ordered a healthy amount of food.... More

Very tasty spicy food. Friendly and quick service. Reasonable price. We would definitely return. We went for a set meal, and all of the food beautifully complemented each other.

I'm a solo traveler and sometimes eating out can be a rushed affair. This restaurant was wonderful, very comfortable, great atmosphere and beautiful food. The two members of staff were very friendly, had the right level of conversation as to make me feel welcome without being overbearing and intrusive. You must visit.

Recommended by our B and B hotelier, we were not disappointed. We ordered several dishes and shared. All were excellent. Of special note were the pad Thai, chicken with ginger, and the mango with sticky rice. The owner checked on our satisfaction and comped us extra dishes. All in all, it was a delightful evening
