Babani's & Sawatdee, Downtown St Paul

While visiting St Paul we had dinner in two downtown ethnic restaurants near our hotel, one good, one a bit poor. Thumbs up for Babani's, the Kurdish restaurant on St Peter St near W 10th. Food was tasty, interesting, and reasonably priced, not gourmet but very good home cooking. Decor was very nice as well, and service pleasant.

Thumbs down for Sawatdee, the Thai restaurant on Robert St & E 9th. Though a nice enough place with pleasant servant, Sawatdee offered very mediocre phad thai full of bean sprouts (ugh) and a curry of only average tastiness. The restaurant was not particularly inexpensive for food of this sort, either. We did like the Thai iced tea, though.
