Sawatdee Thai Restaurant
This space offers cuisine reminiscent of the fare found in the Siamese royal courts of yesteryear. Excellent peanut sauce is found on a few dishes, but a highlight of any dinner will be a choice from the satay beef selections. The interior is intimate and decorated with a nice mix of traditional regional artwork. The service is friendly and knowledgeable, which is advantageous considering the extremely spicy nature of some of the food. The responsive chefs will temper all menu items according to the sensitivities of patron palates.
I visited swatdee restaurant during May. I saw cigarette smoke coming out from a kitchen. I felt so disgusted that I could not finish dishes. We just paid and went home after. I wanted to compliance what was happened yesterday to manager so I called the restaurant. I asked server to get hold of a manager for me. I overheard that the manager does not want to talk to any customer. So server told me that he is busy now so tried to contact him later. I called him next day and tired to talk to him again. Guess what?! same thing happened! The manager does not want to talk to any customer on the phone. I think manager need to learn how to manage the business. This restaurant have awful management system that the manager never want to talk to customer! If anyone want to go to this place then think again! You do not want to eat food that have touched cigarette!
Before I visited here, I was very skeptical about the restaurant because of the reviews on the Internet. I went to this place on May 6th and I really enjoyed the food there. The food was very tasty and the waitress were very friendly. They knew about the menu very well. I like the decoration of the restaurant. To me this was thumb up Thai food!
I know one thing for sure its always easy to point the finger at the business owner in a case like this. However in almost every case when you don't know the whole story, you should always wait until you know both sides of the before you shoot your mouth off and pass judgment on someone.
I've been to Sawatdee Thai before, I met the owner and his family, they were extremely nice and sincere people. Some of the best Thai flavors Ive had and again the service was very friendly, and I felt appreciated as a customer.
The owner obviously doesn't have an incredible command of the English language and is an easy target in a case like this. Therefore all the more reason if your so high and mighty to show at least enough grace to here and understand both sides before attempting to destroy the livelihood this family has obviously worked very hard to build.
This restaurant surely does not reflect Canadian values. I have not been to this restaurant, but after firing a woman because she shaved her head, like many men do, I will not bother to try it though Thai is one of my favourite cuisines. There are many other restaurant options.
Management would do better to work on the quality of their food, service and people management skills than to worry about the haircut of a female employee.
Not withstanding the fact that dismissing an employee for showing her humanity in such a public way is shamefull, as the spouse of a cancer survivor I am saddened, ashamed and angry. I believed that we were a more evolved nation than we appear to be.... If you are also disgusted and want to make a statement here, boycott this business, and ask others to do the same. Perhaps shaving this restaurant's profits may help the owners gain some clearly-lost perspective.... Shame on you Sawatdee Thai!
I've always felt that a restaurant review should focus on the tangibles: food, service, price, and ambiance. Yet every so often I'm reminded that part of what MAKES the ambiance are the attitudes of the owners and/or operators.
We're an extended family that's crazy for Thai food, and I'll admit that we have frequently patronized this restaurant in the past. However, when this incident with Ms. Lozinski occurred (she was a waitress fired for shaving her head in support of cancer research), we all agreed that we'd rather do without, make it ourselves (we'd have to learn how, but we're willing!), or go out of our way to find another locale than to continue to support this restaurant.
In retail management we say "listen to the one customer that complains, because they represent a hundred others who just left in disgust." I suspect the restaurant industry functions under a similar principle. So have a look, Sawatdeem at these reviews, consider that each one represents the thoughts of many people, and think of how drastically your actions have affected your reputation and, as a result, your dining ambiance.
Weak all the way around. The place did not seem to care about customers very much. If you are looking for a dining experience, don't bother. The food was average. The dishes were okay - typical Thai fare.
I liked the ambiance, nice set up with several tables that provide ample room to view wall art. However, the service was not what I expected; it was slow, the waitress was irritable and appeared to have something better to do. The food was just a blend of multiple dishes with as much spice that could be thrown in as possible. It was not tasty. At least Winnipeg has a nice variety of restaurants that I can dine at instead of this one.
We went as a party of 6 to the Provencher location on a Saturday night and found the restaurant not very busy; perhaps an omen. The glasses were questionably clean, service was extremely slow with one dish completely forgotten about and the taste of many dishes was almost identical. We found their coupon in the show and book but even after telling the waitress up front that each couple wanted to use one (& she said it would be no problem), when the bill came, it was a problem - suddenly, only one coupon could be used since we were at joined tables. All three couples were very unhappy with the experience and agree that none of us will be returning.
