Sawasdee Thai Cuisine Restaurant Review

: Sawasdee’s pale and cool color scheme is a perfect foil for the restaurant’s most exotic aspect---its silk-swathed waitresses. Sophistication spills over onto the menu, too; we especially like the lady shrimps, deep-fried and wrapped in wands of rice paper, but would just as happily start with fish cakes or pork-stuffed chicken wings. Hold the ubiquitous plum sauce, please. But don’t shy away from asking for a little extra heat in dishes such as yellow, green or red curries or the stir-fried spicy noodles with ground chicken. The kitchen occasionally equates elegance with caution, but the heat quotient is abandoned with the basil-accented duck curry served in a scooped-out pineapple shell---after which subtlety is appreciated come dessert time. Sawasdee’s coconut ice cream and seasonal fresh mango with sticky rice ring out a meal with finger-cymbal finesse.
