Don’t feed the locals! The food was amazing though. Try the Thai iced tea with vodka.
Loved the food and the view. Just note their mildly spicy is very spicy.
The food was very delicious. My only complaint is that they don’t have a lunch menu. They only have a dinner menu, even for lunch.
Friendly service and good food
Excellent food and got to meet the funny and friendly chef who is from Thailand, so this is the real deal! Also, the new bar manager Kate is really nice and has the bar running much better with excellent service unlike before there were locals who had their friends hanging out giving free drinks and bad service to anyone else. A must go for excellent Thai food and an awesome view of the beach!!
Great food with amazing ocean viw
It's OK. We went because of the coupon. Not the best Thai food I've ever had but not terrible. Beautiful view. The main problem I had with them is we ordered 3 Thai iced teas - my daughter had one and then my other daughter decided she wanted one later. Toward the end of the dinner, we ordered one more. Two of the waitstaff made comments about so many iced tea ordered that made my daughter uncomfortable. Maybe they thought she drank all 3 drinks herself. Even if she did, it was impolite for a service staff. Think we'll pass on Sawasdee.
We really enjoyed our experience at Sawasdee!! Our server was very friendly and efficient, and the food was fresh and delicious! We will return soon!
We went for a birthday celebrating and the staff treated us with smiles and very engaged in making our experience a good one. The food was fantastic. Would definiately return!
