“Service as warm as the curry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

I'm working my way through the Sawatdee menu, trying a different dish every time I'm there. I have yet to try anything that wasn't wonderful. Most recently I enjoyed the Massamun Curry. It was absolutely delicious, and the portions are generous enough that I took my leftovers home and got two more meals out of them. The service was fast and friendly, and our server was very knowledgeable about the menu.

I wouldn't necessarily go here for a romantic dinner, because the seating doesn't lend itself to intimacy at all - it's just a big open room. Still, it wasn't as noisy as you might expect.

“Reliable, enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

Business dinner for a total of 13 colleagues from US, China & Europe - needed something lighter than a late-night gorging on steaks or Italian. 

Perfect choice - Sawatdee. The menu offers bar faves of hot chicken wings, a twist on the jalapeño poppers, as well as Asian faves of vegan summer rolls, chicken satay, etc. For the main course choice, we had a wide variety of selections: a sushi boat for 4 (very good fresh sushi and rolls), pad Thai with shrimp, fried rice, stir fries, and selections of Nigiri. The food was enjoyed by all; the service was good; the live music was pleasantly playing in the background, without interfering with numerous conversations at the dinner table, the beer and wine complimented everyone's dishes. No room for dessert. 

Have been here about 4 times, when the area for business. This is a reliable place for dinner.
