Sawasdee (sah-wah-DEE) is one of the most common words in the Thai language, used both as a greeting and a farewell. Sawasdee Thai Elevated brings authentic Thai cuisine to Long Island in a setting that is warm, inviting and stylish.
Our founders began their journey in the heart of Thailand. Owner John Conrad met his wife Walailak in Thailand, where she was born and raised. John lived and worked in Thailand for 5 yrs and adored the experience. He looked for a way to bring an authentic Thai cultural experience back to America.
That’s how Sawasdee was born: as a restaurant that combines authentic Thai cuisine with modern dining. Thai food is all about marrying complexity with harmony, Sawasdee aims to continue that tradition.

As soon as we walked in the hostess advised that there is a 1 1/2 hour time limit. The place was empty so this was a complete turn-off and I already made the decision not to return. The fried dumplings were like mush. The drunken chicken was dry and lacking noodles. The beef short ribs in curry sauce was awesome. The cocktails were very good. The waitress was adequate but non communicative.
The mango rice dessert was so so.
Food is awesome
Chicken pad Thai delicious
Sweet and sour chicken awesome
Shrimp in garlic stir fry was good
Shrimp roll app is a must order.
One word…..yummy! Best pad Thai I’ve had….authentic….clean…natural!
As always, the food and service were wonderful!
Hands down some of the best Food and love the desserts, Fried Ice cream Toasted coconut Mochi!!! Each visit gets better.
Shout out to IV thank you for bringing me there.
Wish you had more plants covering the Parking Lot. :))
Great food, good service, and now my favorite Thai restaurant on Long Island!
Fantastic food, modern atmosphere, good music, excellent service. Enjoyed a variety of stir fry, noodle and curry dishes and everything was delicious. Would go back again!
We’ve NEVER had a bad meal!! It’s one of our go-to restaurants.
Love the food
Food is was not fresh as it usually is
Service was good
Menu choices were good
I guess just an off night
Good food and great ambiance. They skipped one of our appetizers but that was it
Food is excellent. Spot on authentic. They need better service. Need professional waiters there. Not family a friends. If ran a little more professionally there would be a line out the door.
Delicious food and good portions. Love that the menu indicates which items are gluten-free.
As always, the food was fabulous and the service was attentive but not hovering. We always come back !!
The food is real good and it's nice and hot when it comes out. The drinks are good 2.,
WOW ! i was so impressed with the food, drinks and the service . At first we were taken back by the location ( a shopping strip) but don't be fooled the food was so good and the menu had such variety !! We will definitely be back !
Food Was excellent, service was good. If I had one criticism it was that when we walked in and mentioned our reservation the first thing I was told is that I had a one hour and thirty minute time frame for my table. I understand that for the size of the place and other restrictions buy I must say that was a little off-putting especially for my first time there...
I will try it again, but I would suggest that if that is the policy going forward you might want to state that when making a reservation and at least wait until you get to the table to announce it......just my opinion.
Fantastic food. Best Thai that we’ve had on LI. Next level for sure!
The place is beautiful and the food is so delicious!! Very good service and not a long wait for our food.
Delicious as always!!
Food was tasty,however, wish the portions were bigger compared to the Thai places we are use to the in the city.
No one really came around to check on us and we had to wait a good 10 mins for water and even menus.
Likely, will only do take out if we don’t want to travel 20 to 30 mins out that day.
We really enjoyed the service at this restaurant. The food was delicious. The restaurant was clean and we were able to pay contact free. We will definitely go back
Good food and enjoyed will surely go again would suggest people to go there for dinner
The food was OK. The curry puffs were quite Blanding terms of the filling, but the pastry was quite flaky. We had crispy spicy pork belly- spice level was moderate and the meat was quite chewy. Prik king chicken was spicy but dry. We had mango cheese cake for dessert and it was awesome! All in all, not bad
Excellent authentic food
Been over a year since I've been there (lock-down) and the food is still fabulous. Best flavors, wonderful quality and everything was perfect. One of the best local restaurants out there. Make sure you try the yellow curry. The flavors are so amazing.
Good food and excellent service.
Always solid food! Highly recommended.
Family Get together
Beautifully decorated, very clean with a large variety of menu and cocktail choices. Food is excellent.
Always great eating here. Food was delicious and the staff are very nice.
fantastic food, service, drinks and ambience. i always love this place.
Food was so delicious and service was great. I love the atmosphere, too! Fantastic! Will be back soon!
Always good with great service Loved their interesting dishes I’m in love with their coconut soup with veg and chicken
It’s always good food at Sawasdee.
Loved our meal. Everything from appetizers to dessert was delicious. Will definitely be back!
The food and atmosphere were both excellent. Our server was very attentive and polite. Our visit was for a Valentine's date night, so the menu was limited, but still had a nice selection of options. We look forward to going back, and trying some of the regular menu options. If they are similar to what we've eaten so far, then I'm certain we'll be regulars.
Consistently excellent Thai food
