Many years later, that adventure is still as exciting as ever. Not only we expanded with more restaurants to share our flavors with more folks, we've added to to the flavors we offer, as well!

We were left unattended for 15 minutes and we left. Understaffed and service is apparently not important. Disappointed as this used to be one of our favorites.
Our server was pushy but then she forgot about us. She came to our table 30 seconds after we sat down when he told her that he needed an extra min, she huffed & said oh i'll get your order when I come back with her wine. She came back with the wine and asked, well have you made a decision? He told her some beer-- a tall. She came back with a short and mentioned that the tall glasses were all dirty and you will get this and a partial. She had started to walk away when we waved her back and told her that we wanted to order an app.
when she came back with the app, we told her that we wanted to order.
I ordered the pad thai and she asked how spicy do you want it-- I said, I want nothing with spicy, I get sick. She said yeah, yeah I get it. My Husband asked if the duck curry had a lot of tomatoes in it, she said no, not a lot. That dish doesn't have any in it. We then waited 30 minutes for our food; I would understand if the restaurant was busy.... but it was not. I also had a clear shot of the bar and I noticed her behind the bar messing with liquor bottles. When we actually received our food it was warm to the touch (on the top) but when you stirred the dish it was hot underneath (probably sitting under a heat lamp). Remember when I mentioned that I couldn't have spice... well there was something spicy in the dish and I couldn't eat it. She never came back to ask, how is the food or can I get you a replacement on those drinks. She was HORRIBLE!! She dropped off the bill, when my husband was still eating and said no rush. She then came back 5 minutes later and said Can I get anything off the table LIKE THE BILL! and when I told her no, we are not DONE, she walked away in a puff again.
I waved the host over to speak with a manager, she refused to get one and all she wanted to do is comp our meal. Not sure we will be back.
I reserved a table for 6 but apparently there was no record of it although we were able to be seated right away. The bathrooms were disgusting, the floor around our table was covered in old food, the waitress didn't come back for about 20 minutes to take our order, the checks were split incorrectly and she specifically said "I split them to the best of my memory ability" so we had to redo them and wait yet again. The worst green curry I've ever had. They just dumped a bunch of crushed red pepper into some broth. Really underwhelming experience.
Service and food amazing- very fresh:)
Wait staff the best!!!!
Place was not clean. Very dusty and sticky tables.
Had a reservation. Showed up on time, was seated right away but all we got was some water. No one waited on us after sitting for 35 minutes so we left. Don’t think we will be back.
Good food and service.
Great Chicken Pad Tai
They’re short staffed so took the server a while to check on us. Wanted to nickel and dime for anything we asked for, down to some milk or cream to cut the spice level. Will probably just do takeout next time if at all.
Just how I remembered it. The holy basil is the best around. Highly recommend.
Great food and service!
Food was good. We understand the venue was short on staff and we were patient. We were able to visit and talk in a comfortable and quiet (not noisy) environment. Everyone enjoyed the meal and experience. We will be back.
While we waited over an hour for our food (two large parties before our order went in), the wait was with it. Food is excellent! I had the vegetable stir fry with chicken and I thought I would be underwhelmed, but it was very flavorful and the veggies were fresh! Service was great too!
We had a really nice time. It was everything we expected.
The food is always consistent and always great at Sawatdee. The Service was prompt, attentive, and kind. The music was quiet enough to have a discussion and provided some peaceful ambience. Thank you for a lovely meeting.
Work lunch - staff was attentive and food was great!
This was our first time visiting the restaurant in Maple Grove. Very impressed. The food was exceptional and so fresh and crisp tasting.
The customer service was excellent, food was good and the restaurant was clean. I look forward to dining here again in the near future.
The food was great! The portions were shareable. Loved it!
It was hot in the restaurant, we had to ask for the air conditioner to be turned on. The waitress said it was because it was crowded. We were the only people in our section, and there were very few people inside. Most of the diners were outside. The service was extremely slow. We had to ask for napkins & a knife. Thankfully, the food was delicious. I would only recommend takeout here.
Fantastic food and experience. Had the Holy Basil Supreme. So good!
Unfortunately, our food was underwhelming. Thai pineapple fried rice and Pho were under seasoned and the Red Curry was salty. We’ve typically had good luck so perhaps it was just an off night.
The restaurant was not very busy yet we were seated next to every patron there. We also had long waits for drink orders and food. It was not busy we should not have had to walk to the bar and ask for help. It was also very warm in there like the air conditioning was not working. They were also out of most tap beers and were out of the bottled beer I requested.
Food was incredible. Staff was very kind and helpful. The table was a bit sticky and wobbly -- interior and environment of restaurant could use some updating. Felt a bit too dark inside. The menu was in rough shape as well - lots of crossing off of items that are no longer available. Would be more appealing to have cleaner and updated menus provided to guests. Not handwritten ones.
Girls night . Amazing food and super quiet in a cute area of Maple Grove .
I am not sure what happened but the food was terrible! The pad thai had no flavor.
Disappointing service, overall. The server we had was great, but it took forever to get seated, and then even recognized when we did get seated. I felt like our server wasn’t even supposed to be in our section, but he got the “short straw” and had to help us out.
Food was very good, but got vegetarian egg rolls instead of spring rolls. We liked them, so it was fine.
Also - the sushi doesn’t start until 4pm, which was news to us.
I ordered my fried rice medium and it was overly spicy and not enjoyable. I have had this dish atleast 10 times and was very disappointed. Service was okay fairly slow and without any enthusiasm.
The service was very slow, did not know the answers to any of our food/drink questions, and the food was very bland. I’ve ordered the same dish many times in the past and this time around I ended up throwing the whole thing away when I got home. Super disappointing and not worth the $80 we spent between our food and drink. Probably won’t be back after this experience, which is unfortunate. I used to love this place.
Great food and service
Thanks Sawatdee staff! Fun birthday dinner tonight.
Very good quality food just not the place for us!
The food was great and the service excellent. I always love going there!
Yummy food and served quick. The waiter himself seemed a bit inexperienced and rather anxious but the food was great as always and the older man who greeted us when we arrived was sweet. Our friends and us enjoyed our meal.
My friends and I had a great time. The food was fantastic and our waiter August was super awesome and he catered to us and answered all our questions with patience. He provide us with the best hospitality! My friend and I will definitely be back!
Appetizers and sushi all came with the meal though we them as appetizers. The sushi rice was undercooked. The serve seemed new uncertain and untrained.
I had sushi platter and my husband had Curried Duck. Both were excellent! Great service. Good social distancing
Bland food was asked how spicy I wanted it. Moderately not burn my mouth but spicy. Cream cheese wontons were good Chicken sweet and sour was a thin red sauce with veggies and halves off a tomato. My beef fried rice pineapple style had very little beef and less flavor. I ended up using the red sauce to add flavor. Not impressed
Always great food and service. We have never been disappointed
