Elkhart County is down to three Thai restaurants. Sawadee Thai Cuisine is closed, possibly permanently.
The restaurant had closed due to an emergency, according to a friend of the owners. But it hasn’t reopened since, according to a number of readers. Dan Shenk said he went there for lunch to find it closed without a sign in the door. The phone number is also disconnected. The shades are drawn at the restaurant.
Sawadee opened in late May. Reviews from those who dined there were mixed. Some said they really liked it and others said the dishes were too sweet.
The location at 1301 Lincolnway East is between downtown Goshen and a commercial corridor to the southeast. It’s had two cafes and two ethnic restaurants in recent years, but all have closed.
The three places in Elkhart County that serve Thai dishes are Lucky’s Donuts, Asia Market and Bangkok Place, all in Elkhart.
