Alex, picked up the crispy duck pad thai on the way home last night. Excellent! A little pricey at $16 after tax, but masarap!

i think i read somewhere that the owner of this restaurant was the same as the one in paulus hook. however, the food tastes way better and the ambience is nicer as well. too bad there are a bunch of weirdos walking around on newark always looking in (the same also happens at soul flavor).

Got Sawadee delivery the other night. Fast, hot, nice portion sizes.

I got spicy lemongrass chicken, which came with white rice. It was good, and quite spicy. (A change from many places that mark their items as "spicy" but then they aren't very spicy - to me at least.) My boyfriend got something called fried pineapple rice with chicken. Which was sweet and delicious. We both really liked that.

I think the 2 entrees were $21 total. And we got enough for leftovers for lunch the next day.

They said delivery would be a half-hour and it came pretty much exactly 30 minutes later. And the food was steaming hot, which was good.

We liked it. We will definitely order from them again. (And try eating in the restaurant, someday.)

I was there last week on a Saturday evening. I found the good to be pretty good. I am not Thai or Asian. But having eaten Thai food in dozen other places, I can compare and I found the food here to be tasty and good for the palate.

Glad we have a decent Thai restaurant in town.

Residents like us need to give these places a chance ny eating out in our neighborhood. That is the best way to helping local food joints flourish which in turn will attract/lure more retailers.

I will definitely go back to Sawadee!

Cheers!

Finally made it last night with the family - found parking on Grove, too.

Here's the review:

Appetizers:
- Calamar tough, not so good
- Roti - delicious you gotta have this, but no chicken pieces
- some sort of puff pastry, forgot the name, Excellent

Main:
- Crispy Duck with spicy sauce - Excellent
- Filet of flounder with mango sauce ( I think - had too much wine) - Excellent
- Pad Thai - Excellent

2 orders of Green Tea Ice cream, 1 of Mango

One bottle of Smoking Loon Cabernet, 4 thai iced teas


$135 including tip, great value.

Must say I had delivery last night and it was as good as anything this side of the Hudson and can certainly compete with many places in NYC. Green Curry was good, pad thai-so hard to screw up but Wild Fusion finds a way every time-was good, Som Tom was ok-not offensive- but needed some tweaking. Finally a good delivery place.

They deliver to the Exchange Place offices - and their lunch menu is extensive and cheap. My office mates and I were impressed - no-wrinkle ordering process, food came very quickly, and it was tasty!

I agree.  The food is pretty good.  I've only tried the vegetarian mock duck in coconut/red curry sauce.  Highly suggested.  They don't give you enough rice though.  You will need 2 portions of rice for that dish. 
I've been there twice and it seems like the wait staff-although friendly-they're still getting their act together.  Both times I've been there it has been extrememly cold from the AC.
Try it though.

Took my wife there the other night. At first we were skeptical b/c it was on Newark Ave., but once we walked it we were both pleasantly surprised. The ambiance was very nice and comparable to digs in NYC. The music was good and not too loud. The hosts and staff were friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable about both the food and wine menu.

I ordered the Pad Kee Mao (flat noodle dish) with shrimp and my wife ordered the spicy mixed vegetables with tofu. The food was very tasty, spicy, and the portions were large. My only complaints about the Pad Kee Mao was that there were too many noodles and not enough shrimp/veggies.

I found the prices to reasonable and wine/drink menu, though limited in terms of selection, was a bargain compared to other restaurants.

Bottom Line: Best Thai Food Restaurant in JC to date. Would go again. Good amount of options for vegetarians.

yes - looks like it. Which is a little weird. But, at least they're open on Mondays when so many others are closed.

I am very impressed with with this restaurant; went last night ran into 4 friends who got an order where one dish was not correct and they were cheerfully told that their bill was complementary.

I then sat next to one of the owners who told me:

Sawadee Thai was located in Manhattan but they moved here due to the $25,000.00/month rent.

They are the same family that owns Village Thai.

He complained about the process and time involved in get permits and said that a couple of businesses on Newark Avenue went broke waiting for them.

Alot of customers for a rainy Thursday night.

Do not order the fried bananas if you are on a diet!

I also went last night, very good food. I thought the cost was resonable too. Thai dumplings were great.
We'll be going back soon. Had the reisling with the food, worked well with the spice.

I think they might have another restaurant somewhere which may be how they got the liquor license.

While the atmosphere is not exactly my style, I do like the fact that they set the dining area back from the street somewhat and use shades and lighting to deemphasize the location - because let's face it, if you're spending more than $8 on dinner you don't want to be looking at Newark Avenue.




As a fan of thai, I look forward to trying the restaurant. My indicator dish is the chili & lime marinated grilled beef, often called nur yum.

If you like tom yum, you can actually buys jars of it at Stevens Market on Newark. I mixed the tom yum paste with a thai BBQ sauce I bought there and marinated chicken breast in it before grilling. It was unbelievable!

Hey there, Alex!

I've had:

Entrees:
Spicy Lemongrass Chicken (ordered extra spicy)
Chicken with String beans (actually - my friend had that)
Chicken Panang Curry

Apps:
Thai Steamed Dumplings
Vegetable Spring Rolls

All were excellent. I can't say enough about how perfectly they cook their string beans. Al dente - yum!

As experienced by others - the curry was very light. Sometimes panang is overwhelmingly rich and somewhat oily. Not this one.

Shrimp Pad Thai will be next. I saw it served to others and was jealous.

I got take out on Friday. Fish Cakes were very good, the spicy shrimp salad was good too, but they used mixed greens. In Thai cooking the salad greens are shreded cabbage and iceburg, not arugula and spinach. Kind of weird. Fish cakes and salad with nice shrimp= $20
