This was my second try at Sawatdee and it was an even worse experience than the first. The first time the food was mediocre and the portion size was pretty small for the price.
The 2nd time we went with five people and the restaurant was just clearing out from a private party. It was 23 degrees F outside and four people from our party were at the restaurant ON TIME and we were the ONLY four people in the entire place. The waiter insisted that we leave the restaurant and come back later so they could clean up? There was plenty of room to stand by the door or anywhere else for that matter. It was one of the rudest things I have ever seen at a restaurant to ask the patrons to go away, out into the 23 degree weather in the snow and come back later. How do these waiters clean up when there are other patrons in the place? Do they make all the people sitting at the other tables get up and go outside to wait while they clean the table next to them? We went to a Mexican restaurant across the street and had an excellent time! I have lived in this neighborhood for years and will never go to Sawatdee again.
