we ate here on Friday night and have to say it was very disappointing! i'm not even sure there are any Thai people working there? food was very bland and watery and not authentic! the best dish we had was the steamed sea bass as it was the only thing that had any flavour!

Sawadee is a very popular Thai restaurant in St James Street. When we went for dinner, there was one table for 2 left.
Service was a bit hit & miss... took a while to get the waitresses attention.
When we were able to, we ordered tempura vegetables, my partner had the massaman curry & I ordered the tofu pad thai.
The tempura vegetables were very greasy.
My tofu pad thai was tasty. But the waiting staff were not very friendly & were very slow.
We were also charged for a starter that we never received.
Nice enough, but probably won't be back...

My old school friends and I spent the weekend in Brighton together, we stayed in the apartment above this restaurant and so decided to have dinner there. What a fabulous meal, the food was delicious! The staff were lovely and very attentive, we ended up having about 7 courses and they were all so delicious. Highly recommended restaurant, it was the perfect setting for a social catch up.

Friendly attentive staff with excellent knowledge of dishes and ingredients. Did not feel rushed at any point. Food excellent, delicate and flavourful and more than enough per serving. little bit chilly if you sit by the window. Comfortable atmosphere.

Nice meal with friendly staff, food was good and hygiene seemed standard. Was a bit pricey for the portion sizes but enjoyable nether the less.
