Don't let the location in an older strip mall fool you. It certainly changed once you enter the door. We've been going here for over 15 years and the food and service remain consistently good. Favorites include coconut soup, chicken salads, any of the curries and pad Thai. Just ask them for advice and they can help you decide.

Okay, you'll need a car to get to this place. New Brooklyn headed West will get you there. Next to the gas station. Don't let you stop you - not a great location, but great food. You'll be surprised the first time you enter- not what you'll be expecting-and that's part of the fun. Serving staff are friendly, as is... More

What a great Thai restaurant, the food is flavorful, large portions, so much to choose from. We ordered the green curry, a salad, the fried rice, and an additional pork dish. Lots left over for the next night at home. A true treasure in Kitsap county.

Lovely view of the Harbour with an outside seating option. Service was very good and the food was also good. I had the Pnang Curry Beef and the flavor was very good but the beef was a bit tough. The appetizers and other items were very good and I just didn't order the right item. They were very accommodating making... More

Sawatdy is a bit off the beaten path but worth the drive -- once you are on Bainbridge, if you have a car, nothing is all that far away. Do not be put off by the location. We started with the Steamed Chicken Dumplings (3A) which were very flavorful. We shared #23 - Gang Kiew Warn Gai and the Drunken... More

I've NEVER seen portions like this in a Thai Restaurant. Never ever never. The location might look a little sketchy from the outside but don't let the blase' roadside retail keep you away. Sawatdy is an unbelievable find. Excellent food, tons of great veggies, extremely large portions-make that obscenely large portions, great service and decent atmosphere.

Don't let the location fool you. It's in a small gas station-based strip mall way off the beaten path but the food here is to die for. We get take out here a lot. Dining inside the restaurant is "just OK" imho. The take out is the bomb though! Get some Chicken Phad Thai.

This is not an exaggeration as we have tried our friends "Best Thai Restaurants" in NYC, Chicago, LA, SF and a dozen other places in the Bay Area, South Florida and many other cities across the nation and throughout Washington (yes, even Port Townsend) and nothing comes close to the overall plethora of first-class dishes that Quinn and her family...

The food here is excellent. Bainbridge Island has a charming, small-town feel, and a local recommended this place. I'm enough of a snob that I thought it was probably just OK, but didn't expect first-class Thai food, like I've had in major cities. I was so wrong. It's really great.

This continues to be a local favorite Thai food place. Excellent and consistent food prepared by family founders. The owners are gracious hosts but service is a little slow when they get busy. Menu is almost identical to their sister restaurant Sawan. This is remotely located and not catering to tourisszst trade. Lots of take out trade at this Island... More
