We bring fresh, authentic food from Thailand all the way to Minnesota. Sawatdee isn't just about great food; it's about exploring Thai culture. Sawatdee began in 1983 as the first Thai restaurant in the five-state area. Minnesotans were intriuged by the sweet, sour, bitter and salty taste combinations found in authentic Thai cooking. Celebrating 30 years, Sawatdee has become a Twin Cities favorite. Voted Best Thai 2012 by MPLS/St. Paul Magazine.
