“Is this really in Tampa? I feel like I'm in Thailand.....”
Reviewed May 27, 2010

This is a must for anyone who is interested in finding the "local's hangout". Go here for sunday morning market and get a variety of homemade thai food from fresh curry, soups, deserts, and even bring home your thai fruit trees! The temple itself is an architectural anomaly for the tampa area.....you really feel transplanted to Thailand! Not to mention that the setting is right on the hillsborough river, making it that much more serene. LOVE IT!!!

“Great waitress....average food....”
Reviewed April 14, 2010

We ordered the Chicken Satay, Pad-Thai and Green Curry along with two beers and a soda. Though the food had decent flavoring, the chicken and veggies were obviously frozen. That was disappointing as we had read good reviews. Our waitress was lovely... very helpful and kind. The atmosphere was nice, calm and soothing. We just wished the food was fresh.

“A favorite with unusual pumpkin curry”
Reviewed January 17, 2009

A very small place with consistently great food. The pumpkin curry is something I have not seen at any other Thai restaurant and is my favorite and I hear others enjoying it too. For a quiet lunch or dinner this is a place to try!

“Little Thai gem in Temple Terrace, FL”
Reviewed July 11, 2008

We moved to Temple Terrace a year ago and have sampled most of the restaurants in the area. One of our favorites so far is the Sawatdee Thai Cuisine restaurant located in a little strip of shops at 10938 N. 56th St. While unassuming from the outside, the interior has an interesting, authentic Thai decor. We have eaten there numerous times and have always enjoyed it. The service is very friendly and the food is always hot and very tasty. They serve good basic Thai fare. We usually have one of the curries or Pad Thai. The price is moderate. Overall, this is a great little place to have a nice meal.
