    Sawatdee: "Just Thai It"

    by goodfish Updated Jun 23, 2014

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is one reason to go to Sawatdee: pad thai. The best pad thai in town. For those of you who already love the stuff, this is where to find it. Those of you who haven't yet tried pad thai, this is where you should have your first taste of Thailand's national dish. You order it on a spiciness scale of 1-5 (I'm a 3-4) and I'll recommend that novices start with a 1 or 2 and ask for additional peppers on the side so you can add heat as desired. Sawatdee has been around forever and has grown to 5-6 locations throughout the metro area on the merits of their extensive menu, very generous portions and - you guessed it - amazing pad thai.

    Favorite Dish: Did I mention pad thai?

    Run by Thai people, full of Thai deco, the menu looked authentic. I have never been to Thai, so I have not comparison.

    Favorite Dish: Extensive menu.

    Each dish has a scale, marked by number of red chilli peppers, indicating the spicy hotness. Be very careful what you choose if you do not like hot and spicy food. I ordered one dish with one pepper (the maximum, 10), and told them that I would like to have it made as mild as they could. The dish came, all seafood soaked in a deep red chilli oil. I had to rinse everything with cold water before eating. They were simply very very hot (do not forget about that one store in the Mall of America nearby sells the hottest sauces in the world!)

    The Twin Cities has many chinese/vietnamese restaraunts, but few thai places in comparison to cities like Detroit and Chicago. The food is excellent and the prices reasonable.

    Favorite Dish: Pad Thai - For those of you who haven't had Thai food this is some of the best in the Twin Cities. Pad Thai is a traditional noodle dish with a distinctive peanut flavor and the usual hotness.
