Sawasdee Thai Review

I haven't had dinner with CC in a long time so we decided to go out to dinner together and try something new. Since it felt like I haven't had a chance to have Thai food in a while, we decided to try Sawasdee Thai on Main St. We arrived for an early dinner so we weren't particularly hungry. 

Both CC and I are not spicy food lovers so we opted for a sweeter and mild curry and the waiter recommended we try the red curry. Chicken, beef, pork, fish and prawns curry can be chosen but we decided to stick to chicken curry since it seems more comfortable and authentic. The curry was a perfect combination of fragrance, sweetness and spiciness. Because it seemed weird to have curry without rice, we ordered some rice to go with the curry and it was a nice combination. I definitely recommend ordering a curry item when coming here.

CC picked Pad Kra Prao, a stirfry of seafood with peppers, onions and basil. Although I wasn't thrilled by this dish when it arrived, a taste of the basil leaves definitely changed my opinion. The strong scent of the basil compliments the seafood but also very tasty on its own. It's possible to customize this to contain certain types of seafood, but we didn't have any problems with assorted seafood. However, we did find this dish a little on the salty side.

Overall, I really do like the Thai food at this restaurant and will definitely venture here again although transportation here is slightly more troublesome.
