We eat a lot of Thai food, & this place was better than many we've tried in the area. The food is real, fresh / freshly cooked, & nicely spiced. That said, we were disappointed with the pineapple fried rice; the rice was barely "fried" & the large bowl contained far more rice than chicken & nuts / veggies. It... More

I love Thai food and am pretty critical when It comes to quality and authenticity. They have many dishes that are hard to find at your average Thai restaurant. Pineapple Fried Rice, Green... More

My husband and I came here with family we were visiting. This was amazing Thai food! I had the green papaya salad, which was super fresh and had great flavor. I also had the green curry, which was also delicious. My Husband enjoyed the calamari as an appetizer. The staff were very friendly. The town of Soquel is adorable...a true... More

Had lunch at Sawasdee Thai restaurant. We were greeted warming on arriving, had great service and the food was good and ample. I recommend this restaurant. It's not fancy, just good food and friendly staff. 3 for lunch was $36.00 which included 3 Thai Ice Teas. Not cheap but not expensive either.
