NileGuide Expert tip:
Spice level can be a bit inconsistent. If you are weary of spice make sure to let your server know and if you like the spice you can always ask for some extra chili sauce on the side.
Salt Lake City has an abundance of great Thai Restaurants, but this one really does stand above the others in terms of atmosphere, fresh flavors, and generousness with seafood, meat, and veggies. Praised as "The most authentic Thai eating experience in Utah" by City Weekly Magazine, Sawadee serves up over 50 Thai items on their menu from the classic Pad Thai to stir-fried shrimp, scallops, or tofu with zesty hot chili sauces. Appetizers are a must -so try the Crispy Thai Spring Rolls or the Thai Curry Puff (deep-fried puff pastry with potato, onion, and curry), which pair nicely with Sawadee's extensive wine and beer menu. The portions are generous so you'll want to share. Just make sure to save room for sticky rice and mangos for dessert.
Bottom line: for just a dollar or two more per entree, you'll enjoy better service, a more elegant atmosphere, and greater portions than at Sawadee's competition.
