Very friendly and welcoming. Menu is vast and hard to just pick one thing. We had three starters to share. And the green prawn curry is amazing. I could not fault this restaurant or staff in any way. Great location, clean and reasonably priced. Will be back.

We have just had dinner here. The food was good and well worth the visit.... but for £60for two people, really thin scrappy paper napkins, cheap cutlery and horrible piped music did nothing to make the meal memorable. Similarly, the service was friendly but lacking in professionalism with little knowledge of the menu displayed. Prawns and coconut rice are good choices.

We are really glad you enjoyed your dinner at Sawadee, and pleased that you say it was well worth the visit to dine with us. We do a lot to make every visit an enjoyable one with the best, freshly made, authentic Thai food possible. We put a lot of care into our menu and into its preparation, using locally caught south coast fish, prime meat and specially imported tiger prawns, Thai rice and fresh Thai herbs. We decorate our beautiful restaurant with fresh orchids on every table and lighted candles.

Looking at your order, only £35.35 was for food for the 2 of you, the rest being drinks. This puts the meal at well under £20 per person.

We do not use starched white table linen, in the colonial style. Our white paper napkins are perfectly standard and are neither thin nor scrappy! Laundered table linen comes with higher restaurant prices and we find our menu quality and our pricing speaks for itself.

As for your criticism of our cutlery – the cutlery we use is good quality stainless steel and of a rather nice simple beaded design. There is nothing cheap about it.

You say our music is horrible. We play music from our own collection which includes modern and traditional Thai music (or sometimes Jazz). Thai music, both contemporary and classical, is very much part of Thai culture, of which we are proud.

We hope to see you again on your next visit to the UK.

Myself and my husband visited Sawadee very recently. We both have lovely starters and main courses, the food could not be faulted at all, and very nicely presented. The staff were all very helpful and friendly and it was a very nice atmosphere. I would recommend this restaurant and I would be sure to return on my next visit to Brighton.

I've been going here semi-regularly with friends for about 8 or 9 years but only just realised that I have never added a review. Sawadee has a very warm and relaxed atmosphere, the food is excellent and good value and the management and service is always attentive and very friendly. In a town packed with good places to eat this is easily my favourite, not least because it manages to combine the good atmosphere of a busy restaurant with a relaxed and intimate environment.
