This is a suburban Thai - it has no pretensions of grandeur but it does tasty fresh dishes at a reasonable price. Wednesday evening and we called in on a whim - had Angel wings (delicious), seafood Tom Yum (standout dish) and stir fried pork with cashew and chillies. Dishes came exactly as described- ingredients were fresh; cooked well. There... More

We ordered four dishes tonight for three people. The serving sizes were really small compared to other Thai meals have had. The food was bland and lacking flavour. Won't go there again even though is local.

We used the entertainment book and tried the Roti with peanut sauce, Pad Thai and Red Curry. Great value and the Pad Thai was awesome. My partner 'hates pad thai' and even he liked it! Curry was good and enough for a small lunch the next day :) $5 Roti and sauce is a cheap, delicious snack. One thing to... More

Have been going here for over a year as my local Thai. Sometimes it is delicious, sometimes it isn't. There is no consistency in flavour or size. My visit today was the last straw, my pineapple fried rice was so salty... I couldn't even finish half of it.

This was our first visit to this restaurant. While it doesn't look much from the outside, inside is quite pleasant. The music is sufficiently loud to drown out the traffic without making it impossible to hold a conversation. There were plenty of diners and a steady trade in takeaways. We sat towards the back which is not ideal as staff... More

I went with a friend to this little restaurant on Johnsonville road and found it really pleasant. The deco inside was typically Thai and very nicely done. Even the table cloth, placemats, cutlery were obviously imported which gave the place a feel of being in Thailand. The chef was very obliging when we said that we were going to a... More

We went mid-week for an evening meal and it was very quiet, sparse and cold in the restaurant. I asked if we could have a heater switched on and to be fair, they obliged. Service was good, and the food was nice and good value.

We have only had takeaways from Sawasdee so far but the experience each time has been good. No problem making phone orders, which are repeated back to ensure all captured correctly. The portions are of a good size and definitely good value for money. Other reviewers have mentioned the lack of atmosphere. My only comment on that point is that... More

This was my second visit to Sawasdee for takeaways. The first time the service was slow, impersonal & a little rude. But the food was tasty & generous. This time around I phoned the order ahead so I didn't have to wait like last time – med-hot Larb & an entree of Curry Puffs – and was told they'd be... More

We had a pleasant meal here but it did not have much going for it in terms of somewhere that you would go back to. Maybe we caught it on a bad night. However we could not fault the food we had.
