My husband and I did a cooking class here. We stayed around the corner from the restaurant so we could just walk there from our hotel, so it was nice and easy to get there. We were taken to the local market to get the food then taken back to the restaurant to cook and eat our meals that we... More

This was our second trip to Khao Lak and our second visit to Sawasdee. The first time we visited, we literally ran into the restaurant as a massive thunder storm struck... and stayed put for the next few hours. The lady who owned the restaurant was so lovely, she even drove us back to our hotel after our meal. We... More

If you're shopping at the market, this is a good place to get your dinner. The location is next to the street so it can be noisy sometimes. Food is good, especially the prawns were delicious.

Been to this restaurant twice this week. Both times the food has been excellent but the service has been poor. The restaurant has two friendly waiters who are always busy but we always seemed to be waiting for our drinks or our meals. There is also a girl there who only appears to sit behind a desk and make out... More

Very slow, even for our drinks, and not the best food by any stretch. I didnt like the crispy duck at all. Maybe it was duck, but it certainly wasnt crispy. Other dishes we ordered never came. Then when we wanted to leave they had great difficulty even raising a correct bill.

A great chef who cooks with such fine ingredients to produce outstanding food full of flavour & style, the service is great also. We had the steamed whole fish done in chilli, garlic and lime first time, and second time the whole white snapper done in ginger, garlic, chilli & lime. The fish was so tasty, but watch the chilli,... More
