The yellow curry has just the right balance of heat, sweet, and robust Thai flavors you would expect. The consistency of the curry is perfect. Not soupy and not gloppy...just a rich creaminess that's thick enough to coat the meat and vegetables nicely. Portion sizes...More

The portions were huge. Great for hungry college students. The food was pretty good. The Pad se wee was a little salty but the homemade flat noodles were great. Definitely go again.

This is a great place if you like Thai food. I had the Pad Thai and it was probably the best Pad Thai I've ever had. My wife had the Red Curry and it also was very good. Recommend.

I love Thai food and this is great Thai food. I recommend the pineapple Curry, it's awesome. Sawadee is always busy, I guess that's a good sign that I'm not the only one who loves it.
