This was my first visit to Sawasdee. I learned about Sawasdee after asking a Thai friend what was the best Thai restaurant in the area. This is truly a mom and pop entity that is worth the trip. Once again using the old adage of "you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover" is applicable at Sawasdee. I enjoyed the... More

We stayed in Norfolk on our way home from NYC. This restaurant had really good reviews. We got to our hotel at around 8:00 pm and wanted our teenagers to be able to use the pool so we ordered take-out. All of the noodle dishes had overcooked noodles which were very sticky. The drunken noodles had overcooked chicken and no... More

There is an elegant restaurant that serves authentic Thai food with a bit of flair. My girlfriend and I were craving this style of food. The building was clean with light music and a attentive staff who really cares whether we were enjoying ourselves. We visited during lunch and saw a healthy flow of customers that seemed to agree with... More

Seven of us had dinner tonight based on one of the couple's recommendation. What a hit! The service was excellent and the food was served quickly - especially for a group this large. A variety of dishes were ordered: Pad Thai got rave reviews as did the salmon dish. Two specials were offered - a seafood dish and a lamb... More

This is our default Thai restaurant. They always seem to appreciate our business and have quality food. The place is large but feels homey. My wife loves the chicken fried rice. Simple, tasty, mild, and rich Thai spices, egg, and peas. I love it too. I love their curries, drunken noodles, and spring rolls. Thai decorations are great and calming.... More

I dined here because I was in the area on business at a nearby hotel and I love Thai food. Unfortunately, the food was not very flavorful. I had fresh rolls, Tom Kha Gai, and Mango Curry Chicken. The Tom Kha Gai was probably the worst I've had in my travels. No flavor and mostly onion. The curry was mostly... More

I ordered takeout and had some of the best Pad Thai I've ever had. The staff was also very friendly and when called me back after ordering to check to see if eggs were OK, since I ordered it with tofu. My meal was hot and ready in the less than 10 minutes it took me to get there.

Found the restaurant on Yelp while on a business trip. Shared Thai shrimp rolls and pork pot stickers for appetizers at lunch - both of which were delicious. Had Pad Se Ew with beef for lunch and it was wonderful. Wide egg noodles were cooked just right and had wonderful flavor. I got the lunch size and it was quite... More
