Sawadika Thai Restaurant | Lifestyle





Today I thought I would share with you my thoughts on a local Thai restaurant just around the corner from where I work called Sawadika. I am a massive fan of Thai food and noodles so Sawadika is one of those places I've been too a fair few times but I really enjoy it each time. What I really like about this restaurant is that it isn't part of some massive chain where everything always tastes the same, it's small and cosy.

They do a variety of different menus and I have also had the lunch menu which is just as yummy. One evening a couple of week's ago we decided to come here again, though the person I was with had never been to it before but he had heard good things. We just decided we'd go for starters, the mains and of course, a bottle of wine.

For starters we had, Golden Bags (ahem!) which were these tiny little parcels filled with prawn, chicken and vegetables. Now these were incredibly tasty, I'm not a massive fan of prawns but I couldn't even taste them. I had to have Satay Chicken, I mean chicken and peanuts, they're like my two favourite things. I really really like the peanut sauce that comes with the chicken skewers, I could eat that stuff on it's own but it goes really nicely with the chicken. There was also some spicy Thai crackers that had a great kick to them.

For mains, I must admit I went perhaps a little boring and got the Chicken Pad Thai, but I just love it so much. I have had Chicken Pad Thai's in a lot of different restaurants and a lot of the time they are fine, but this one always has such a good mix of flavours I literally finish the entire plate. Love it. The person I was with had Drunken Noodles which I have to say are frickin' spicy, I only had one tiny little noodle and my mouth was on fire, unfortunately I didn't take a picture. To give you a bit more of a description the menu reads - Stir fried Hofun noodles with fresh chillies, mixed Seafood and green Peppercorn, fragrant with holy basil. Very spicy, but pretty damned tasty too.

When it comes to price I think that Sawadika is fantastic, the meal (excl. wine) came to £33.80 which I think is great considering the quality and the portion sizes, you get a lot of noodle for your money.

  1. Ah, it all looks so delicious, I've only tried thai once but I loved it. That's a really good price as well, especially as the portions are big.
