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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Food excellent!!!!!
Service wasnt that great. Kate (I think) isnt that experienced as a waitress. She was good when being serviced but not too attentive to customer needs eg. When you needed more water or another drink.Another waitress stepped in and she was very good.food was awesome despite the service. Cold by the door ask for inside seating.

The restaurant exceeded my expectations from the ambiance to the service and the friendliness of the staff. The entrance into the restaurant makes you feel like you are in another world. The soft ambiance and light makes it a really nice date spot if you want something personal. We went as a group so we had the center table. The staff made sure we were taken care of and had our orders all placed quickly. The Thai iced tea is very strong and tasty. I had the lychee soda and it was great! The drink even had some lychee bits in it. The appetizers are all delicious. From the spring rolls to the calamari and curry puffs, you can't miss. The BBQ pork was delicious as well with the sweet sauce to dip it in. The main courses are also great, as they are filling but not too filling. Just right! The pad garlic was my order and the sauce with the rice was something I would order again. The tofu was fried just right and it took on the sauce, which made it really delicious. Overall I feel like this would be a great spot to do a group dinner or even just a date. You can't go wrong visiting this restaurant.

Food was better than your average Thai joint -- we enjoyed both the pad Thai and the curry. The speciality cocktails were a delightful surprise -- tasty and potent.

Ambiance is more sophisticated than one would expect in a strip mall. Very attractive and comfortable.

Service was pleasant and kind, but very slow. Several times wait staff and management walked by our table when it was apparent that a dish needed to be cleared or a drink was empty.

Dined there on Sunday and it was pretty quiet which was a surprise considering that the food was great, ambiance nice and service excellent. We had a few appetizers and one dish and created our own tasting menu. Nothing was left on our plates. And yes, it is elevated.
