The four corners of Thailand converge on Sawasdee Thai Cuisine's menu, which highlights regionally specific cooking found throughout the country. Although every dish treats taste buds to a melange of flavors, diners can control the amount of heat by asking that their entrees be mild and savory or spicier than Marco Polo's shipping cargo. Six kinds of curry?red, green, yellow, panang, massaman, and jungle?fill the dining room with the aromas of coconut milk, basil leaves, and roasted peanuts. These sorts of bold flavors are also evident in dishes such as the crispy duck with sweet, sour, and spicy sauce and the sauteed collection of straw mushrooms, bell peppers, and tofu in a red curry paste.
Sawasdee Thai Cuisine's warm and inviting dining room is similarly dedicated to its cultural roots. Small Thai sculptures and artifacts line the room's ledges and occasional pieces of artwork adorn the taupe-hued walls. Tables with bench seating line one entire wall, although the space also features a handful of smaller tables scattered across its rich wooden floors.
