Expensive food for what it's served, unfortunately... They have a long menu, too many dishes that are almost the same. Service is average, quite a few mistakes when taking the orders. Food was bland, which made me sad...

I went to this restaurant for lunch with a friend, I suggested as a good ine but oh surprise when my friend found a long hair around one of her shrimps. That was really bad but it was worst when we gently show the hair to the lady in charge and she suggested it was ours!!! We couldn't believe it!!!... More

The quality of food was excellent. The menu has a lot of choices. The dishes are well presented. The staff was really nice and fast. The restaurant has a nice decoration, low light, a calm atmosphere.

I have eaten here 3-4 times. SawasDee is a 15 minute tram ride (Tram 12, direction Armes) and a short walk from Cornavin Station. The food is good and the service very good. Prices are moderately expensive. I would eat here again.

Expensive restaurant with poor quality food. Perhaps Thai food cooked for foreigners / Swiss. No homemade desserts... Just pre-packaged ice cream!!! Will not be going back.

This was our second trip. The restaurant was excellent as it was the first time. The fish in banana leaves is one of the best we have ever had in any restaurant. The roast duck was excellent.

The food is great, portions are big and the meat is good quality. There is a vast choice and the prices are fair for Geneva (40 chf per person sharing an entrée + main dish)! Service is really good!

I went encouraged by the great reviews in Tripadvisor. But I got really dissapointed. I had the menu for CHF 60 but the meal had absolutely nothing to do with real Thai food. The esthetic of the dishes was very poor too. The restaurante is nice and the service was reasonable but if you are looking for real Thai food... More

Excellent food, atmosphere, and service. Fish cooked in banana leaf was superb. Also had spicy chicken and thai veggies. These were very good. Nice wine selection, friendly service, wireless available after password was requested.
