Delicious thai food

Visited this restaurant as it was near our guesthouse and so glad we did - good value and really delicious Thai food. Haven't had green curry that good since we were in Thailand! The free liqueur shot at the end is a great touch and really friendly staff. Definitely recommend.

I went the Saturday evening before the Brighton Marathon, a busy weekend for the city and not a chance of getting into any Italian restaurants!! I ventured out to eat around 6 pm and I'm glad I did as within 30 minutes the place filled up to full! This is now the fourth time I have eaten here over the... More

Had an amazing meal here with my Mum and partner. We got the si set menu and the coconut battered prawns were the star of the show. Will be back next time I'm in Brighton.

I stumbled on this restaurant on my way back from a walk and I am so glad I did! My sister and I enjoyed everything about it. The food, the atmosphere and the lovely friendly welcoming staff. We were only in Brighton for two nights and would have loved to have gone again. Really lovely

It looked busy but a 9.45 in the evening they surprised us by making a table available to accommodate us. The... More

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
