We have friends who visit us who lived in Thailand and love going to Sawasdee when they come to town. Don't know the names of lots of things, but they have a soup "TOM" something made with coconut milk that is excellent. If you're not...much of "food risk taker" like me, try the sampler plate. Great tastes, textures, and flavors. Nice quiet atmosphere.More

This is a hidden gem. Perfectly made Thai food if you get your spice levels right. Hot is a bit too hot for the throat so medium is what should be ok. The Thai tea and complimentary soup were really good. Ordered pineapple rice, green...curry chicken and pad thai. All were good, only Pad Thai turned a bit too spicy for us. Service was quick and my kiddo loved the pineapple rice. The ambiance was also quite welcoming and prices fairly reasonable.More

I was the only one there at 11:15 am, but I enjoyed the pineapple fried rice with tofu. the crab Rangoon was delicious and sweet, the soup was quite spicy. I really liked the entrée, but I like food that is a bit sweeter. I...am not sure what that would be at this locationMore

We go here every couple of weeks! Great food! Consistently good with great service. It’s my favorite Thai in Kansas City!

I have been to Sawasdee multiple times already but keep forgetting to write a review. Since I have actually visited Thailand, I can say with certainty Sawasdee is pretty authentic. You must try their Thai tea and pad Thai. The Tom Yum soup is also...very good. It has excellent flavors of lemongrass and a little spice. Also, I recommend the pineapple fried rice. Excellent atmosphere for date night. There are beautiful decorations, but it is still low key enough to where it isn't stuffy or too fancy.More

A group of us had dinner here and after eating our meal, we decided the food was OK. Not bad and not good. The biggest disappointment was we ordered Spring Rolls (regular and vegtarian). The description states herbs however all we could see and taste...was cilantro. It was terrible and we left most of the two orders. The waitress, Priya, never asked us why we didn't eat them, I would have! I personally asked for the Yellow Curry dinner and hot, it was lukewarm (temperature and taste). No complaints about the Pad Thai dinners. I was also very disappointed that they put a tip on the bill for the five of us. I did not complain and to be honest, establishments that put the gratuity automatically on my bill, will never get any additional tip. The previous day, we ate at an upscale steak restaurant where the bill was almost $400 for a party of 7. The service and food was very good and gave the server a 20% tip. A gratuity was not added by that establishment to that bill.More

I was alone for business travel and craving Thai. This was the second place I tried as the first closed early. The food was delicious and perfect- I have the pad see ew. The service was quick and friendly. I never felt awkward being alone....I will definitely return.More

It had been a long while since we’ve been to this location and it has improved considerably since it changed owners (4 years ago?). We came in for lunch and they had a few good specials that were reasonably priced. The Spicy Rangoon’s were really...good. I ended having Garlic Pepper Shrimp and my wife had Potstickers and Spring Rolls. Overall quite good, though we still feel The Thai Place on 87th Street is the best place to go.More

Very good selection, service is great. Medium hot wins my flavor. Can't go wrong with whatever you chose!
