Don't order takeaway on a Saturday.

I have had takeaways from here before that have been beautiful and all present and correct. So when my in laws came to stay, I suggested we get a takeaway from Sawadee, we ordered at around 7:30 but would have to wait until 9 to collect the food, but this was not a problem for us.

My husband and I visited this restaurant a couple of weeks ago during a long weekend away in the lakes. I had looked on tripadvisor before our trip and spotted this restaurant on here. We both love Thai food so I booked us a table for the Saturday night. The decor was great, very authentic, and the staff were friendly... More

We went here for a evening meal one night, spur of the moment on a Friday. They took us in with open arms and were really friendly even though they were busy. We had fish cakes and prawn crackers to start which were amazing. Then chicken and duck for the mains. Both were really nice. The duck was spot on.... More

The meal was deffo 10/10. And divine it was excellent in every sense. The only problem was a drink never turned up when ordered and when I went to the toilet they were mopping the floor and a waiter said " That's not P**s on the floor were mopping up but water". Don't get me wrong I work at a... More

The restaurant has just been refurbished to a high standard , only thing the 4 of us thought was that the tables were very close together, being a bit awkward for customer & staff to move in between tables etc a small point as other wise the meal & staff were excellent. We will certainly return .

Came in after been disappointed that Little Thai chef was closed on a Tuesday night and that Jintana were expecting Stupid amounts for their food. Was made to feel welcome. Both ladies on the bar were friendly and welcoming. Order was taken, paid for (great value) and they even came and waved to me as i Sat outside in my... More

My partner and I paid our first (but not last) visit to this restaurant last night.Good food,prompt service from cheerful, friendly staff and surrounded by equally happy customers.The place was deservedly busy and it is clearly sensible to book beforehand if planning a visit.

Food was delicious. Not expensive and the service was great. The place was very busy and we booked the day before luckily as we had the last table available. This restaurant was recommended by a local and it was very worth a visiting. Will defiantly go back if possible.

Due to ill health we were unable to celebrate my husbands 70th birthday by visiting this our favourite restaurant so we voted for the take away instead. We certainly weren't disappointed. Everything was piping hot and delicious. The staff were friendly and efficient. Although not quite the celebration we had planned it was certainly a most enjoyable meal. We look... More

We visited twice in a week, so can certainly bear out the favourable comments of recent visitors. There's an interesting and biggish reasonably priced menu, comprising mainly starters, curries and stir fries. The chef doesn't stick strictly to Thai dishes, but gives a Thai twist to dishes which might originate elsewhere in SE Asia. We enjoyed chicken satays and chicken... More
