“Chic, but not as good as Nam Thai”
Reviewed 14 July 2011

Sawasdee is a nice place with good food and pleasant atmosphere. You'll be happy if that is what you want. For a closer approximation of Thai food go to Nam Thai.

“Excellent Thai food in Buzios!”
Reviewed 8 October 2010

We were in Buzios for 12 days. We went back to Sawasadee a second time despite the ample choice in Buzios but it was so good. We were not disappointed second time round. Prawns were amazing... very large and generous portions. Staff were very friendly. Both nights cost less than 120 euro for two including starter, wine and coffees.

“Good & Fancy”
Reviewed 28 July 2009

Good Thai food in this Leblon, Rio branch of original Buzios Restaurant. Many say this the best Thai in Rio, but I prefer the older and more authentic Nam Thai, also in Leblon.
