We decided late one evening to have Thai and I had heard good things about Sa Wad Dee restaurant. So, I went there and found out that I could have called in an order for pickup. But it was a relaxing wait in a nice atmosphere while they prepared our take-out meals. The service was good as was the meal... More

Delicious food, with decent portions, service, prices and sushi and bento box choices also. 'American Friendly' in the sense that those not looking for extremely authentic flavor profiles, and some familiar dishes on the menu also. Compare that with Thai Basil down the street (I also give it 5 stars) that has some more traditional and heavily seasoned dishes on... More

Been here many times because the atmosphere is nice, staff is great, and the food is wonderful! They have sushi and traditional Thai food of course and specialty drinks. There are so many things on the menu so if you don't know what to get try my favorite - Coconut Shrimp Fried Rice and Taro Root Bubble Tea. The shrimp... More

Each time I come to Boise our family heads to Sa-Wad-Dee for Thai food. They have a restaurant in a small strip mall next Fred Meyer with about 15 tables but we typically get take out. The food is never greasy and always flavorful. Beware..for those who love hot spicy food the 5 stars are extremely hot. My son-in-law loves... More

Our server was great at recommending entrees that we would enjoy. The four of us all got different ones so that we could share, and they were all delicious. Our server remembered the other couple from their last visit and even what they had ordered! We received a delicious complementary dessert.

This used to be our favorite Thai restaurant close to home. But it has been our experience that the last several visits the food has not been very exciting. Sauces seems to be watery with little basil, not great flavor or spice. Maybe they go too "Americanized?" After our gift cards are used we will find others place to go.... More

The owner is wonderful. Sushi has always been good and taste fresh. Extensive menu. I would like the wine options to be expanded for the type of cuisine and be knowledgeable about it.

You'd never know from the strip mall location that the food in this little restaurant is so fabulous! I've been a number of times, ordered different dishes and brought different people and have never been disappointed. The wait staff is very friendly and the food is wonderful!

Arrived at Sa-Wad-Dee this last Saturday, four of us, at 5:15pm. Didn't know what to expect from a restaurant in a small strip mall, across from a major farm and ranch supply. Outside in front, an inviting covered area with tables and lots of flowers was encouraging. Inside was even better. Attractive decor, not overdone. A sign indicated that they... More

This neighborhood Thai restaurant has great service and good quality Thai choices for reasonable prices. Neighbors who have been to Thailand swear that this is the real deal for flavors and preparation.
