Birthday feast

As always we arrived to a warm Thai welcome. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, advising our group on alternative options on the specials board. Having worked in Thailand I find the food authentic and delicious. An excellent food experience for our friends and family

This was taken as an alternative to Jintana - and I'm glad I did, I nearly gave up on this one due to the rudeness of the desk manager. Her rudeness is unbelieveable! I walked in off the street to book a table for two for the following night, on her desk diary both pages were full, so she turns... More

I last ate here years ago and the place has had a face lift since and is twice the size. From the street the restaurant looks very attractive and in keeping with the style of a small English market town rather than being garish and out of place as many Asian style eateries often are. Also on the inside the... More

We visited the restaurant on a Friday night. We didn't have to wait long to be seated. The staff were very friendly and helped us to choose the meals. It was the first time my mum and dad had Thai food, but I must say they absolutely loved it. It was an enjoyable dinner and if we're ever back in... More

Recommended by our B&B, Sawadee proved to be an excellent choice. My Thai Red Curry was badged 'hot' but they were happy to tone it down a tad so that it was still hot but allowed the rich taste to highlight. My wife's Jungle Curry was not toned down and too her delight blew her ears off! Nice bottle of... More

Recently went here with my parents as they are always raving about the place. We had the set meal for 3 people and was not disappointed. The meal was yummy!! Plenty to eat. The staff were very friendly and helpful, couldn't do enough for you. The place itself was clean and modern, nice atmosphere. Will defiantly go back....probably the best... More

I was working in the area and called in this restaurant for dinner. I was greeted with a smile. The place was busy but I was lucky and managed to get a table. I ordered soup for starters which made my taste buds tingle. The flavours were simply fantastic. Rich and flavoursome. The main course was equally as good with... More

Visited last night with husband. The food was alright but not outstanding. We had the special for 2 which at £44 was overpriced.
