We found this charming restaurant by chance whilst looking for somewhere to eat. The place seems small but that's deceiving as there are are tables at the rear and downstairs. We were there from 18:30 and must have seen at least 30 more customers come in during our meal. The staff were really pleasant and helpful, without being over attentive.... More

Such a shame we had to wait 90mins for our food - as when it finally came it was really nice. Staff were friendly but over stretched - gave us 50% off bill - would come back again as food was great but not on a Saturday eve.

New Year's Eve dinner was a treat here. Lovely atmosphere minus a loud drunk bore, perfect service and delicious light and fresh food. Not cheap but it is popular for a reason.

Visited for dinner with friends on a week night - food was really tasty and good value for money, we spent several hours here and weren't rushed out after finishing dinner and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Great spot for good Thai food and I look forward to returning again in the future.

All recent visits to Brighton have included a dinner in Sawadee! A little place that you wouldn't know was there if you didn't know it was there but well worth the look. Unassuming from the outside, step through the door and the menu is a delight - authentic Thai food, cooked very well, reasonably priced, friendly service..... A bit cold... More

We (4) arrived without a booking and found the staff welcoming and attentive, and the food really tasty - better than many Thai restaurants outside Thailand. Drank Tiger beer which was good. The only negative aspect was the high price for main dishes - we had three and, with the drinks, the total was eyebrow raisingly high. But we would... More

On a recent trip out we wanted to dine in another restaurant, which appeared to have closed down. So on a chance we decided to try this venue. Pros: very friendly and polite staff, prompt service, food is server reasonably quickly and the atmosphere is nice Cons: the food whilst decently Thai is forgettable at best. Green papaya salad, typically... More
