Good traditional Thai restaurant menu with reasonable prices. Wide choice of carnivore, vegetarian and vegan options. Décor is modern and clean, if not particularly warm, and you can have a conversation even with a reasonably full restaurant. Convenient to Metro and there are street parking options after rush hour.

This restaurant was near where we were staying. The pad thai was very good and portion was large enough to share.

We have actually never sat down at Sawatdee - but order take out or pick up very, very often. I love the pad thai and the Pad-him-ma-pan (cashew Nut) dish, have also had a few others and they have all been delicious! Really quick service, anytime we call it always seems it's ready to be picked up in 15-20 minutes.

Drunken noodles were good as was the green curry, white rice and spring rolls. I would go again and recommend this place to a friend!

We went there for dinner and had a very good yellow curry and a terrible Pad Thai. We couldn't eat it - it was extremly sour. The service was unfriendly.

If you have the typical food allergies (gluten,dairy, spicy!) you can and should eat here! The chef not only adjusted my food for but made it taste fantastic too. Most places will remove the allergens, but can't remake the dish so it tastes like it was supposed to be that way. As you can tell from the picture I didn't... More

I had a choice between Pho Deluxe and Sawatdee. I chose this Thai Restaurant. The inside looks really nice and decorated with Thai picture frames. The area looked nice. After 5 minutes I flagged the waitress to take my order before it got too busy. I ordered the papaya salad. It was disappointing. Too much dressing! Then I ordered the... More

We liked what we ordered - it tasted good - but cannot put 5 points because our non spicy beef with stir fried vegetables tasted pretty much the same as our super spicy pork with eggplant and basil. These entrees came with jasmin rice. We also shared a Tom Kha soup (with coconut milk) with soft tofu. It tasted good... More

I travel to Arlington often for work, and I normally stay int he excellent Residence Inn - Courthouse. I have frequented many of the restaurants in the immediate area. My wife and I love Thai food and we (or I, when I'm on my own) always enjoy Sawatdee. It is simply great, dependable, solid Thai food. Great for take out... More
