Located on Washington Avenue in Downtown Minneapolis, Sawatdee Thai Restaurant began in 1983 as the first Thai restaurant in the five-state area. Minnesotans were intrigued by the sweet, sour, bitter and salty taste combinations found in authentic Thai cooking and cuisine. Over thirty years and six locations later, Sawatdee has become a Twin Cities favorite. Each location offers slightly different menus to reflect the preferences of people in each area, but all who dine at are celebrities and are treated with love, respect, and peace. Specialties include a lunch buffet Monday - Friday from 11 am - 2pm.
