What is the difference between a Sauté and a Stir-fry?

Recently, I visited one of my favourite Thai restaurants, Pongsri, in New York. One of our mutual friends found two items on the menu that looked exactly the same with similar ingredients. The only difference was that one was sautéed and the other one was stir-fried. She asked me what the difference was and it was something I had never thought about. Does anyone know?
