Welcome to Sawasdee Thai Elevated.
Sawasdee (sah-wah-DEE) is one of the most common words in the Thai language, used both as a greeting and a farewell. Sawasdee Thai Elevated brings authentic Thai cuisine to Long Island in a setting that is warm, inviting and stylish. Join us for a tantalizing taste of Thailand and an unforgettable cultural experience.
Our founders started their journey in the heart of Thailand. Owner John Conrad met his wife Walailak in Thailand, where she was born and raised. John lived and worked in Thailand for five years and adored the experience, and looked for a way to bring an authentic Thai cultural experience back to America.
That’s how Sawasdee was born: as a restaurant that combines authentic Thai cuisine with modern dining. Thai food is all about marrying complexity with harmony, and Sawasdee aims to continue that tradition.
