Address: 4983 W. Flamingo Road, Suite A
Status: Open daily from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
A culinary switcheroo has been completed on Flamingo Road, as the authentic flavors of Sawaddee Thai Restaurant have taken over the former home of local favorite Yonaka Modern Japanese.
Sawaddee’s corner space at the Flamingo-Decatur Plaza sits next door to Shang Artisan Noodle and the new operators have kept much of the original interior and layout, brightening the atmosphere and adding flowers to each table.
From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. diners can take advantage of a $10.99 lunch special, which arrives with two egg rolls, green salad, jasmine rice, and green or red curry. An extra $3 will upgrade the meal with meat or shrimp.
Yet to reveal a final menu, the current roster of carefully prepared dishes include stir-fried seafood with roasted chili paste, deep-fried snapper, spicy fried basil, chicken sa-te and pad Thai or pad see ew, plus “Andaman Seafood” presented in a fresh coconut shell.
