My husband and I were looking for a good place to eat on Bainbridge and decided to give Sawatdy a try based on the rave reviews her on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed! The food was carefully prepared and delicious. I especially loved the Phad Gra Tiem (Garlic Chicken?) that we ordered based on our server's review. It was amazing.... More

This has been my favorite dining spot for 25 years. Ask owner, Quyen, to advise as to order choices...but you cannot go wrong. Those seeking low cost meals might opt for sumptious soups or appetizers. There's a semi-private spot for larger parties. Reserve ahead.

I didn't care for the fried rice but everyone else... More

What was to turn out a bad day trip to Bainbridge due to heavy rain, actually was saved by some great Thai food at Sawatdy. Recommended by a colleague (who lives in Bainbridge), Sawatdy is a drive from the Ferry port into the heart of the Island on Fletcher Road. The location is not impressive (next to a gas station)...

We absolutely love Sawatdy and it may have ruined us for thai food anywhere else other than it's Sawan Thai location across the island. Food is always served fresh and hot and is delicious, they never disappoint. They have a great selection from their menu. Sawatdy is located in a strip mall that could use some exterior updating but trust... More

I've been to Thailand and tried Thai in 30 or so states, hands down the best Pad Se-ew on the globe. I went there with Dad, his first shot on grubbing on some Thai. He loved it- and he's from Minnesota, if does include "cream of mushroom soup" is not necessarily food. So the fact he ate the whole thing... More

We have no problem making the drive to Bainbridge Island just so that we can go to Sawadty's. Not being that familiar with the island, we had to drive around a bit before we found it the first time. It sure doesn't look like much from the outside, so you really feel like you've stepped into another world when you... More

This place is a perfect example of why TripAdvisor is so great. We never in a million years would have discovered this little gem without it. Thanks, reviewers. The food was fabulously fresh, perfectly spiced, and attractively presented. We'll be back! ;c)

Talk about off the beaten track. Sawatdy Thai Cuisine is located on the west side of Bainbridge Island, not far from Fletcher Bay and the Grand Forest. The restaurant resides in a tiny strip mall, and its neighbors are a mini-mart, a gas station, and a picture frame shop. Sawatdy is totally nondescript from the outside, and its green, yellow,...

Great food - wide variety of authentic Thai dishes. Friendly, helpful staff. What a great find on a relatively small Island.
