"Thai It" – Sawatdee

Since 1983, Sawatee has led the Thai food movement in Minnesota. This local legend has served the Twin Cities with exquisite food and service from its beginning. With six locations throughout Minnesota, the original restaurant in the Minneapolis warehouse district was remodeled to reflect traditional Thai architecture. Using Thai motifs found in cultural artifacts, we created a new bar space and updated toilet rooms for handicap accessibility. Owner Supenn Harrison states, “it doesn’t matter who you are or when you come in to eat; you are treated with love, respect and peace.” With this philosophy in mind, we designed these areas to reflect beauty in the detailing and equity in the space for all.
