In classic Thai cuisine, one of the main goals to strive for in a dish is the perfect mix of sweet, sour, salty, bitter and hot. Really good pad Thai has this balance, and once you’ve tasted it, you won’t want to settle for less.
Family-run Sawasdee is a daytime shop in Ratchawat that serves pad Thai so good that it will change your perception of this famous plate of noodles, making you a more discerning pad Thai eater. You can also order it haw kai, or wrapped in an egg.
Gui chai, or green onion dumplings, make a great appetizer and are served with a spicy molasses syrup. Go to the front of the shop to choose the kind you want.
