Proven Thai Restaurant

When we came, there was only one worker to take orders and deliver food. Service was slow, but it was worth it. The taste was authentic and prices are about the same as any other decent Thai place in the bay area. Ambiance was wonderful. Walls are stylishly decorated. There are cushions to sit down... read more

Solid food, but don't be fooled by their claims on the website that they deliver. They almost always seem to "have no driver," even as early as 8:30PM, claiming to "be closed." If you want to eat there, great. If you're hoping for delivery, don't waste your time and try somewhere else. Would give a higher rating for the food;... More

New to the area, my wife and I were craving Thai the other night. So we jumped on Yelp and followed the ratings to SaWaDee. From the outside it had nice signage, but otherwise didn't stand out from the other storefronts along that block of San Pablo Avenue. Walking in, though, was a completely different story. This place has a... More

Good for eat-in or carry-out. Nice selection of dishes and good service. Requested level of spiciness not always consistent with request.

This small restaurant has been open for a longtime, and the food seems better now than ever. It is a good value. It's the best Thai in the area. It is part regular seating, and part Thai style tables (sunken area for your feet). The owner is very friendly and the staff always pleasant.

When I visit my son, we often get takout because his three little boys can be a horror to control in a restaurant. Therefore, we often orter takout from SaWadDee. I walked by one day and saw that the interior looks very nice, but I can only talk about the food with any degree of authenticity as I haven't eaten... More
