Sawadee is an unassuming Thai restaurant in a bit of an out of the way place on Harrogate Street in West Leederville. It’s friendly and welcoming with nice clean decor.
The menu has many of the traditional Thai favourites, and it’s a licensed premises with some good wine choices.
We chose the Tung Tong pork and peanut parcels to start. Lovely delicate dumplings with a great sauce and served on lettuce leaves (also great to wrap the dumplings in the leaves).
We also had the grilled barramundi with tamarind sauce – another winner – great fresh fish and good tamarind flavour.
The star of the meal was the green chicken curry – a beautiful thick sauce with plenty of chicken, great with simple boiled rice.
This is a neighbourhood gem – it’s a shame that the location isn’t more prominent, but if you are seeking good traditional Thai, give Sawadee a try.
