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.

My friend and me went to Sawadee on last Sunday. I ordered the grilled beef salad there. It was lovely but unfortunately, it was too hot for me. My friend had a curry and it was great. The staffs are friendly and kind. After serving our food, she came back to make sure we doing alright. When she knew that... More

A typical Thai welcome, good menu and great food. Visit the Ranelagh pub close by before or after your meal.

I like Thai food, and eventhough its not something I would normally eat while travelling abroad (unless I go to Thailand), we wanted to have a break from the standard English fare. The food here was good, but it was nothing extraordinary.
