Sawaddee Thai/Sushi in Normandy near 71st st.

Sawaddee (6968 Bay Dr, just south of 71st st.), is a great value, and will give the other Thai places a run for their money. I haven't tried the sushi, but having spent about six months in Thailand over the past two years, I can say they are fairly authentic. The $6.95 lunch special can't be beat!
Dinner selection is a little better, and the portions are bigger and easier to share. The most common way the Thais eat is what we call family style- everyone gets white rice and the larger dishes get passed around so everyone can taste everything.
Has anyone tried the sushi?

      yes, the usual suspects (pad Thai and papaya salad) with a leaning towards curries.

    2. here's a write up from the herald from last month. since it's kinda out of the way haven't tried it yet. always end up at tamarind.
