First time I went was because a friend told me about the crab fried rice and it was delicious! But don't try the calamari! The second time I tried the spring rolls and garlic chicken, it was also good. I would go again.

I had not been to this location in quite some time and wanted to check it out again with my date. We were impressed by the great service and the fact that they were no longer charging for refills on tea and soda (A very Asian-Pacific custom but not a Raleigh one...). The Poor Man's Noodles are a great choice... More

Very diverse menu, lots of choices. Place is right next to a Ross store, so not hard to find. Service was good. Got the Pad Thai, was well done. Only down side was it's a bit run down inside, could use a makeover. But, prices were reasonable, and I'd rather have better value on food than fancy atmosphere anyway.

Stopped in the first time for lunch. I have had dinner here several times and generally enjoy the food. The service ia alwaya good. Went to the Capital Blvd location, which was nearly empty when I went around 130p (they close at 230p until after 530p for dinner service prep). The decor is colorful, from the walls to the tables.... More

We go to Sawasdee regularly, and 9 out of 10 times it is very good food, with great service. Tucked away off Capital near Chuckee Cheese, it doesn't appear much from the outside, and the inside could use remodeling, but the food does not disappoint. We've tried lots of dishes and love the spring rolls, the fresh rolls, Drunken Noodles,... More

For Thai food, I've had better. This was a special night, though and we were celebrating. I feel like if it were any other night, then the food would be average. It was a special night for us, not because of the restaurant. I have celiac disease, so I had a small window of options. I got something with the... More

If you want a quick, undistinguished Thai meal, this is a good place. If you are looking for a unique gastronomical experience, it isn't!

Fast service with good food. Level of spice was just right. 7 of us traveling and we all enjoyed it. And it was very busy. Doesn't look like much from the outside but very nice inside.

I happened on this little gem when I was struck by a sudden urge to indulge in some Thai cuisine. It's a family run establishment so please dont expect it to be all modern and swanky. Motif is simple which is good cause all the focus is on the food. Staff are friendly and attentive. On my visit I had... More

We have enjoyed this restaurant countless times and the food is Consistently Great! What keeps it from a 5 star rating is that the spice levels are inconsistent - I enjoy it on the hotter side, so I order 2 out of 3 - sometimes - it is perfect (Just enough to make my nose run a bit) as it... More
