The food was very good. I had the pad priew wan with chicken and the Thai milk tea. I know it's not fair, but I rate the restaurant based on their milk tea and if the food came close to what I had while in Thailand. The milk tea was "off" but the food did come somewhat close to Thailand.... More

When we entered the restaurant, there were a few diners scattered around the periphery tables, but the middle of the restaurant looked like a party of 50 just left. The hostess indicated they had a "busy" afternoon. We choose to eat here bases on reviews and found the food to be pretty average Thai food. The service was a bit... More

Everything was so fresh and the service was spot on. Fast, friendly and really great iced tea. I love really great iced tea. Especially when it's accompanied by really great chicken pad Thai.

Way up high on the side of the building is a large sign that reads "Sawasdee Thai". Sawasdee is Thai for "Hello". But over the door is a sign that says "Ramen Noodle and Sushi - Ten Ya". First conundrum was where is the door to Sawasdee? Where indeed!? There are two "restaurants" under one roof. That is usually a... More

We stumbled upon this location of Sawasdee Thai, as it was close to where we were and we were in the mood for Thai. We pulled up (it's in a strip mall) and it was a Saturday night. The parking lot was empty and the restaurant was near empty. We were worried. Staff were friendly and seated us right away.... More

We tried the Chicken Fried Rice for take out. It was too salty with too much soy sauce. The Chicken was terrible and big pieces. They had a Big lettuce leaf in the box taking up half the space in the box. What's up with that. I will not go back again, and will not recommend to my friends.

Sawasdee Thai is to be avoided unless you are starving and there are no other options. We dined their for lunch on a Tuesday. The vegetable tempura was soggy and flavorless. Shrimp/vegetable tempura came with only two shrimp and was equally soggy and flavorless. In our party of four, the two having tempura were served 10 to 15 minutes before... More

Stopped in for lunch and was pleasantly surprised to find they serve ramen noodles. After talking with my server, she told me the gentleman had trained on Japan. So I decided to give it a shot, and when it came out, I was glad I did. I ordered the spicy tonkatsu ramen and it was phenomenal . Will definitely be... More

Had dinner there tonight with wife. We started with Spring Rolls with Shrimp. I enjoyed it but the sticky texture of the rice paper freaks my wife out. I ordered Beauty and Beast and Red Dragon sushi which were outstanding. My wife ordered Fried Shrimp with Vegetables. She didn't care for either the shrimp or vegetables saying they were bland....
