Sway

Strip mall-style Thai will always be a staple, but Sway was the first in Austin to elevate Southeast Asian food to a special occasion with curries, noodles, and extravagant coursed feasts that make for one of the best communal dining experiences in the city. Extra points for a must-order vegetarian app, the salt and pepper tofu.
