Sawatdee Thai Restaurant - Minneapolis
Patio sidewalk now open! Please note reservations may be cancelled due to inclement weather.
Serving award-winning Thai cuisine since 1983, Sawatdee is home to Thai food, party spaces, a great happy hour, live music, and impeccable service.
When we first opened our doors at 1983, the Sawatdee mission was simple: to take our community on an adventure full of Thai flavors and good times. 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!
Our Minneapolis location is a beautiful warehouse-turned-restaurant, complete with a gold leaf ceiling and glass etchings of a Thai goddess. Specialties include Rama Thai Delight, Pad Thai, and a Tail of Two Cities.

Food is amazingly good. So few diners, tables well spaced and clean. Friendly servers and wait staff. I hope they have enough diners, whether in or take out to survive the pandemic
Good was good, sat outside, not a place ment for outside, but it worked. In was here years ago, and good or bad it was pretty much the same.
Consistently the very best Thai food. Ever. Period.
We went during a pandemic so they were low on food, and the restaurant was not crowded. The disappointment was in the sauces and lack of food (no roast duck or Lao papaya salad). And the calamari picture was not representative of the batter. The stuffed (paradise) chicken wings were okay but the sauce could’ve been more authentic. Overall, I will not be returning.
The outside seating option is one of 3 tables on the sidewalk on a busy street. One of them was very uneven, but the other ones had a dead bird between them. The chairs were cabled to the table - probably to avoid theft - but the cables made them very uncomfortable to sit in. Definitely not a place for those looking to eat outside.
We were the only people inside, other than take-out. Waiter was so unhelpful when asked questions about the menu.
We waited about 20 minutes before a server came to the table. Once she finally did there was a lot of confusion it seemed like. 3 out of 5 of the entrees ordered were not correct once they got to the table. Poor service, between not getting the orders right and not being attentive I would not recommend. Once the food was finally right, the food is good but not sure at what price. We can go to a restaurant that gets it right the first time.
The food was good...once we finally got it right. There was only 2 tables in the restaurant. Took about 15 minutes to place our order, we ordered our food and appetizers. After 25 minutes she brought the appetizers but said she forgot our entree orders. Why this took 25 minutes who knows? The entrees come and one was completely the wrong order. If it were busy we would have understood but she literally asked us twice and still messed it up.
Only sidewalk seating per Covid restrictions. BLM protest march came through right as we ordered. Pretty calm and cool though. Were very happy to be at a restaurant again after months of Covid closure.
Consistently good food, good service, great location and atmosphere.
