Sway is an award winning Thai restaurant here in Austin, TX and definitely a favorite among many locals.
The first time I ate at Sway was four or five years ago for one of Sam's company Christmas Party dinners. Everything you order comes out family style, so we all chose an entree and got to try a little bit of everything and it was so good that I couldn't wait to go back.
I also enjoyed it so much that I bought my mom and dad a gift card for a date night to Sway one Christmas!
Flash forward five years later and I finally made it back to try some of their brunch! I wish I hadn't waited five years, and I probably won't wait that long to visit again, especially because they have two new locations opening up that will be much closer for us, at The Domain and Westlake Hills!
Sway is an excellent place for date night and especially group dinners and special ocassions. The restaurant has 2 $$ (dollar signs) on Yelp, and because you share meals, it's not bad pricing at all.
For brunch Sam and I decided to order two dishes each, which was way more than enough food and we should have taken some home but we actually ate every last crumb and left Sway feeling very happy and full.
Brunch at Sway in Austin, TX

softshell crab | crispy egg, lemon confit, green nahm jihm, thai gribiche 14
thai basil waffle + chicken | chicken wing lollipop, pickled fresno, green nahm jihm, tamarind ginger maple syrup, togarashi 14

My favorites were the Brioche French Toast and the Mapow Biscuit + Gravy, though the Thai Basil Waffle + Chicken was a close second! Whereas, Sam's top two were the Softshell Crab and the Thai Basil Waffle + Chicken! It was all really good.
Whether you're going for Brunch or Dinner, the atmosphere is really nice - a little quieter for Brunch and definitely more vibrant and busy at night, but I really enjoyed having our space.
