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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
