Today, we decided to try Sawasdee Thai Cuisine because we scored a nice Groupon deal. Located in midtown, you are forced to park on the street around this corner restaurant. There was plenty of seating available when we arrived in the evening, but the restaurant soon filled up quickly. I really liked how the water cups were practically mason jars with handles on them. There are plenty of choices on the menu, but we quickly decided on what we felt like eating.
Today, we ordered the Pad Thai, Thai Fried Rice, and Green Curry with pork. The pad Thai arrived presented nicely. There noodles were not greasy and had just the right amount of spice at the medium level. The noodles were cooked well and had a slight crunch. I liked how they did not over-sauce the noodles. The Thai fried rice tasted good and tasted really fresh. The rice had a good amount of beef inside. The green curry with pork was delicious. The spice level at medium tasted just right and the curry went very well smothered all over the white rice. There was a good balance of pork and fresh vegetables in the bowl.
Overall, Sawasdee serves up fresh, delicious Thai food. The portion sizes are a bit small compared to other Thai restaurants, but the service is definitely above average. If you are looking for a good Thai restaurant in midtown, then Sawasdee will be a great choice. However, their hours aren’t that great.
