I had tried Thai food in Ireland and really liked it, but didn't know where to go in the Twin Cities to eat it. We choose Sawatdee in Maple Grove. They were very helpful when it came to explaining the items on the menu. The food was awesome and not too expensive considering we both got alcohol, appetizers and an entree. Parking was right around back. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for someone wanting to try Thai food for the first time!!
Nice decor, the bar side has a big TV. Try the Thai tea - spiced ice tea with sweetened milk, kinda like Chai tea. My husband had the salad with beef tenderloin - excellent for a summer day. I had the dish with a garlic sauce, recommended by the server, and I chose shrimp with it - also very good, complex and wonderful flavors. I tried the same dish on a different day with chicken and think the shrimp is better. Save room for dessert and get the mango with coconut sweet rice - the best dessert I've ever had. Dishes has choices of spicyness from 1-5, so let your server know.
