I moved to Sherwood from Portland in the fall, I noticed this place when I went to the grocery store to buy food staples. At first I had dismissed the place as it was in a strip mall. My experience with strip mall joints in Portland had not been too pleasing. But my yearning for tasty Thai got the better of me.\r
November 2007 marks the first time I visited Sawatdee. I ordered their Red Curry and Pad Thai, to go. Both of these dishes I am quite familiar with so I felt safe in using them as a basis for review. Both of which I ordered medium or 3plus stars in spiciness. \r
I was stunned! Both dishes were better than any other restaurant I have visited. The balance of sweet, spicy, salty were perfect in harmony!!! Their choice in ingredients appear to be top-grade, all was so perfect. I now visit them for lunch or for dinner at least once a week. I try something new every week and have never been disappointed... \r
My favorite dishes are Drunken noodle 4 star spicy, spicy green beans, all of their curries are supreme, evil jungle noodle is incredible, as is their pad thai... I cannot say enough of their menu and I always order at least three items so I can have a family style meal at home... The leftovers keep for days. \r
I would suggest their cooking is great enough that if I ever left Sherwood, I would travel here still to partake in their incredible cooking!
Pros: Great Food, Freindly family staff, real Thai Food
Cons: Parking, small portions
