We went for dinner on 29/8/14 on our weekend to Brighton, and were pleasantly surprised. The service was very good and attentive and the food was very tasty; despite being a Friday night when they were quite busy. It's definitely a restaurant I would recommend and return to if we go back to Brighton

This restaurant has been a favourite for many years. I went back after a gap of some months and wonder why I have not been for so long. Service is always good with friendly, helpful staff. And the food is consistently excellent; the green curry is the best I've had. I've lately been sampling other Thai restaurants in Brighton and... More

Have been here a few times now when we come to Brighton, and it's nice to know that the food will always be good quality. The thai curries are delicious. The staff are very polite and make you feel very comfortable. We recommend this to our friends all the time, and will definitely be back.

had a lovely meal in the Sawadee on Saturday night (30 August). Satay and fishcakes to start were both very good, as was my spicy stir fry chicken. It was the perfect venue for an early dinner before walking through to the lanes for drinks (i.e. not too heavy!). I'd definitely go back again. (tip - make sure you book... More

Fantastic Thai style tapas for under ten pounds, had salt and pepper squid, Thai fish cakes, jasmine rice and an excellent chicken massaman curry, a true little gem when there is so many restaurants to choose from In the area. Highly recommended

We ate here on our last night in Brighton and we are very glad we did! The shared starters/platter were tasty, well-prepared and nicely presented - I thought the squid was particularly delicious. I didn't used to eat squid at all but this restaurant has changed my mind about it so I'm very impressed! We also had a main dish... More

This restaurant has a 5 star FSA rating. We booked a table by the window which was a good people watching space & looked onto the high street. Service was quick, foods was nice & tasty. We had Thai crackers which came with a sweet chilli dip. I had steak strips as a starter, which was nice & tender, very... More

I have eaten here twice; once for dinner with w friend from out of town during the Fringe; where I had the Panang Curry. It was all I could do to not pick up the bowl and lick it clean. Best curry sauce ever. I then had lunch with a colleague a couple weeks later. The food was as good;... More
