With long opening hours every day of the week except for Sundays, London locals have plenty of time to enjoy delicious Thai cuisine at Sawadika Fine Thai Restaurant on Holborn’s Red Lion Street. Elegantly decorated with dark walls and splashed with golden accents throughout, this local favourite is ideal for a romantic evening out or a special dinner party. Indeed, Sawadika is an upscale Thai restaurant, but the dinner prices are surprisingly affordable – a real bargain considering the kitchen’s use of premium ingredients flown in daily from Thailand, as well as seasonal produce and herbs.

Thai cuisine has a reputation for being particularly spicy, and for all the chilli heads out there, Holborn’s Sawadika Fine Thai Restaurant always impresses with dishes like kai tod rad prik (battered and fried boneless chicken thigh covered in a spicy chilli sauce) and the red curry tofu (tofu cooked with spicy red curry paste, bamboo, pea, aubergine, sweet basil and coconut milk).

I have now visited Sawadika three times and each time I have visited the food has been amazing. Would certainly recommend for an authentic Thai experience.

Great meal - very tasty, would go back. Went for the express lunch which was quick and flavourful (soup and red Thai curry). Would recommend

Not the first time I've been to this restaurant, lovely food, staff and atmosphere. I especially love their spring rolls with sweet chilli sauce always a favourite starter!
