My husband and I went here for our first meal out in Brighton. It was his first time trying Thai food and it was a good experience for him. For me, it was a great experience to taste good Thai food again. The service was excellent and the atmosphere in the restaurant was calm and relaxing. Great for a romantic meal as well.

we were away for the weekend in Kemp Town and on Friday night decided that it was too cold to walk far so stumbled on the Sawadee Thai Restaurant on St James Street, not a place we had ever eaten at before. Absolutely delighted with the meal (we had set meal A I think), were given excellent service, the house wine was good and the bill a pleasant surprise. we would recommend Sawadee to anyone wanting a good, tasty Thai meal for a reasonable price in Brighton area (providing you can find somewhere to park)

I think its hard to be a Thai restaurant in Brighton, as there are so many to choose from and local pubs serving up very good Thai food. Went here for a special occasion and the food was good but nothing I hadn't had in other thai restaurants (except the red thai curry which was exceptionally good and worth returning for!).
However what makes Sawadee stand out from the rest is the atmosphere and the warm personal welcome you get from the staff. You feel very looked after and they make every effort to make your evening memorable. For example we got lots of free ice cream at the end of our meal which was gratefully received! There are also fresh lily's in the windows which give off a beautiful smell, along with its location and warm decor, Sawadee is a real relaxed treat.

cant rate this restaurant highly enough and its so popular with the locals. We often go with our 2 friends and love the table for 4 in the window. On arriving last week it was their birthday and also our friends birthday so we were greeted with Cava and the usual helpful owner who cannot do enough to make you comfortable. Food is very good and always tastes great, we have eaten here so many times and have never not enjoyed. Value is good as well compared to some James Street restaurants and all i can say is def worth a visit but dont all come at once.
