“Sawasdee is the best Thai restaurant in the city. We have been going to Sawasdee for over 18 years. The food is of high quality and the service is to match. It is a family run business with the parents in the back and the three brothers in the front of the house. It truly feels like you are at their home for dinner. Our favourites are garlic pork, green bean beef, thick red curry with chicken, pad thai and chicken satay. Everyone we have recommended Sawasdee to are now regulars too.” – Meena Uppal

“Family owned and the people are friendly. The interior of the restaurant is pleasant – decoration is a little cheesy but nothing too over the top. Food is delicious, lots of flavour without being loaded with salt or grease. In my opinion, prices on the main dishes are usually reasonable, but the appetizers/sides run expensive and end up driving the bill up.” – Dana Sullivan

“Had a lovely, homey authentic experience here on a rainy night. Spacious tables, quiet vibe and lots of charm. The plates were really flavourful – huge portions at reasonable prices. Service was really quick too. I really enjoyed the crab spring rolls and the pad Thai, though everything we ordered was great.” – Robyn Huang

“Ordered boat noodle, shrimp salad, curry and their new offering of hoi jo (crab meat & shrimp rolls). Hoi jo was tasty and the dipping sauce was excellent. Curry doesn’t taste like usual Thai restaurants offering. Boat noodle with beef was to die for! Shrimps of shrimp salad were blanched to perfection. Look forward to the next visit!” – Sofia Khouw

“This great little place on Granville is the perfect stop for affordable and delicious Thai food. Their green curry with chicken is my favorite, and I get it at least once a week! The staff is all very friendly and their lunch specials are a fantastic deal (around $9 for a great amount of food).” – Emily Rowe
