After reading good reviews and on the advice of friends, went to check this place out. Not the easiest to find, I passed it twice and parking lot is really tight. The food was average, the service was uninviting and the restaurant, though clean, could use a makeover. There are better options in the area; skip this place.

Ordered spicy pad thai for take out, so can't say much about the restaurant atmosphere or service. But order was done right on time and was delicious. Two thumbs up.

I work near here, so I frequently stop here for lunch. Best variety of authentic Thai dishes at the lunch buffet. Always count on great Spring rolls, Masaman curry and Pad Thai; with at least two additional spicier dishes and nice fresh fruit platter to choose from.

This is our second visit here and we will continue to go there again. The owner is extremely kind and staff is willing to explain dishes if you are new to Thai cuisine. You can choose to add spice or not to your dish to make it fit your taste. The range of dishes are from the exotic to the... More

We decided to try this place when Thai Curry House was closed (12/26). We were a big group of nine, and they took us in readily (had two other big groups of 10 each). There was only one server for the entire restaurant, so we had occasional waits, but he kept a very good attitude while walking around quickly and... More

In years past I have visited other Sawatdee locations in Minnesota and I was thoroughly unimpressed. So when my SO said she wanted to come to this one, I was skeptical. They are doing something differently than the other locations though. I've been there a few times now and have tried the following: Spring rolls Pad Thai Red Curry w... More

I go here and the one in Maple Grove a lot. I always say I will try something different but always order Pad Thai. Shrimp is my favorite, but they're all good. Well, except Tofu. I hate tofu. :)

We had fried spring rolls, pad thai, and spicy noodles and all were good, but nothing to rave about. There wasn't much spice to either of the dishes and the spring rolls didn't have the traditional paper thin wrapper. The service was good and the food was quickly made. It was close to where we were shopping and that's why... More

I used to live in Minneapolis, and ate regularly at the Sawatdee location downtown on Washington Avenue regularly. When I was visiting recently, after being away for years, I recalled that experience and asked my friend if they were still open. We checked the internet, and to my delight, we located Sawatdee nearby in Bloomington! I went with high expectations,... More
