We came to this restaurant because it was recommended in my guidebook as to having the best view of the night market. While we didn't find the view to be too impressive, the food made up for it. We weren't too hungry as we had spent the day eating street food, so we ordered a couple of beers and shared... More

This restaurant has very good food and the portions are substantial. I had the pork with ginger and the spicy chicken. The staff were pleasant and the toilets clean. The only criticism is that the wine is very over priced with a bottle of Mont Clair the cheapest at 700 baht. This can be bought in Seven Eleven for less... More

We mainly enjoyed being able to watch the night market & hear the music from the food market, which was mainly Thai ballads.

We did eat there again as there was very little choice of restaurants in Chiangrai as most people are in the food... More

Great view of the night market so ideal location but food was not brilliant, did not seem fresh and quite watery. I think this place is hit and miss

This is one of those places where you go because you are scared to buy from the food stalls or do not know what to do with those innards that they are putting in the broth! We did. We had lemon grass seafood soup, pork curry and basil beef and it was very delicious. The service was prompt and courteous... More

I have been to Sawaddee twice. I like the view of the night market, and the upstairs location, but the food made near near ill. I don't think I will make a third mistake.

Hi all. I'm the Chiang Rai DE. I have eaten at this restaurant several times and on each trip to Chiang Rai, I keep hoping it will improve, as it has such a great location and view of the night market. Last time I went to Sawadee, I said I would not return due to the poor service and food.... More

I loved the food in Thailand except Sawaddee. Yes it is located near the market, yes it is sort of an ex-pat place but the food stinks.
