This thai restaurant is the perfect one. They have also another location in Sao Conrado, Rio de Janeiro.

Once it was my favorite restaurant. The staff is still very nice and the place is comfortable and fancy. But he menu changed for the worst. The cut of the meat is poor and the dishes aren't so delicious as it used to be. Such a shame...

Walking by on a warm evening captured by the sweet aroma of Thai food. Visually seduced by Asian decor and votive candles, strolled in without the pressure of a sidewalk barker, to a water view table. Skeptical of having Thai food anywhere but Thailand (or NYC), we rolled the dice. Ordering a dish at a time was a bit of... More

We were looking forward to a Thai meal as we had seen good write ups for this restaurant but we were disappointed. The starters were good but the mains were not what we would consider Thai food, maybe Thai influenced. As we have found with a lot of Brazilian cooking there is too much salt so we didn't get those... More

The restaurant was very quiet, but it was out of season so maybe that was why. The starters were really good, but the main course was a little disappointing for two of us. My son had the lamb chops which were amazing but not very Thai! My husband and I had two Thai dishes I had a beef dish my... More

Sawasdee serves Thai food (with a Brazilian twist). Not quite as good as it used to be but the location on Orla Bardot is excellent, especially on a warm evening with the view across the bay. The service by the long resident waiters is excellent but the food has gone downhill in recent months with the food becoming somewhat bland.

The food and service was just OK, the price a little steep but I guess it is to be expected on the touristy street in Buzios.

The quality ,taste and sense of thai food in this restaurant is as far as the distance from Brazil to Thailand.Strongly NOT recommend for the people who love Thai food or the peoples who want to try Thai food for first time.Only good about this restaurant is the sea view and opportunity to watch all the chicks walking down the...
