Visited for dinner - great Thai food, good presentation. Obviously very popular in the village as every night it seems to be busy. Service wasn't brilliant - what do you expect when you are busy ?!... But I felt it lacked a certain personal & friendly touch.

Had quite a few meals here and the food was always fresh, tasty and good size portions. Staff were all friendly and ready to please. Enjoyed many dishes including pad Thai, sate chicken skewers, fried rice, fried noodles and prawn dishes. They even have a cocktail menu. The prices were so cheap. Will definitely recommend this restaurant.

After a morning on the beach we ate lunch here & were very pleased. We both had Phad thai, I had prawns my wife had chicken. It was freshly cooked well presented wrapped in an omelette. Very tasty and washed down with a singha beer. graham

four of us ate at Sawasdee just outside the Sri Panwa resort. Great choice of Thai cuisine, and spiced to individual preference. After the upmarket and more modern take in teh resort, this was a great taste of traditional cooking, and much cheaper!

Menu is just what you want, service excellent and friendly. Had a great 2 meals on 2 occasions and everyone else must think the same as a popular restaurant in a quaint village. Good for families and tasty meals and Thai food.

In an area with quite limited restaurants this one comes out top easily, for food and service. The menu has a good choice and everything we tried on a number of visits was always of a good standard. I have very fussy kids and they always found something.This is quite small and does get busy. Defently worth a visit.

Staying at the Kantary Bay the Sawasdee was a very conveniently located restaurant and as a result we dined here several times during our 10 night stay. On the whole most of our dishes were very tasty but we did have a few misses. The salads were always lovely and fresh and I really enjoyed the pad thai. Unfortunately the... More

Always seems to be the most popular of the sea front restaurants. Staff are pleasant and attentive despite what other reviews said about busy times. I tried sweet and sour chicken, pineapple chicken, coconut soup. Much nicer dishes available but can't eat chilli for medical reasons :( Coconut soup better than Ba Raan down the road. Would love to try... More
