Went here with family that lives in Austin. They've been several times. Our first. We tried several things, and all were really good. We especially liked Tiger Cry, crispy Fried Fish with the tamarind sauce, and blue crab fried rice. Service was excellent and the place was fun. Very high on my Austin list. We will be back.

This Thai restaurant has the best Thai food in Austin. The jungle curry is my favorite. The place is very busy and noisy on a Saturday evening. It's probably better during the week. It has interesting tables (8X6 feet) and none private, with several groups of diners at the same table. Service was prompt and helpful.

Good variety of vegetarian options that did not disappoint. Tried the vegetable fried rice, spring rolls, and butternut squash curry. Cool ambience. Seating is family style with 3 per bench per side. We were told the wait would be 45 min (at 6:45 on a Saturday night) but it took less than 10.

Best lighting, coolest design, awesome courtyard. The food is packed with flavor, but some dishes can be a little too much on the sweet side. But it's a great place for a large group (if your hearing is good) and to get your Thai fix.

Located 4 blocks South of the River on South First Street Sway has the best Thai food in Austin. This an upscale location with very good bar. Take suggestions from the excellent wait staff for starters;wild boar is very tasty. Entres are best when shared with a good sized group and have all levels of spice. Very good options are Jungle Curry and Tiger Cry Try the vinegar drinks to cut the spicyness if you must. Parking is hard to find in the area but Sway has valet parking which is for tips only.
