Baan Sawan is one of my favorite restaurants in Columbia. Excellent food and even better wine. Not cheap, but totally worth it.

if taste, artful presentation and fresh ingredients add up to best then Baan Sawan is certainly in the running. The restaurant is small but on this Thursday night we were seated immediately. As a party of 5 they really only have one table that will accommodate, fortunately it was available. Service is excellent with friendly concerned staff that extends right... More

We couldn't think why, because we've always loved it, but we hadn't been here in years. It had always been a favorite, and then we moved to the other side of town and it somehow fell out of our restaurant rotation. We found ourselves with a kid free night so we decided to go. We each had appetizer soups which... More

Fabulous Thai. Innovative, ingredient-driven, culinary genius delights diners at Baan. With an attentive, knowledge wait and bar staff (and a terrific wine list), here is a place to discover, or rediscover, the delight of fresh Thai food!

Best Thai in Columbia, and by a wide margin. It's a little pricier than other Thai, but the quality and freshness of the ingredients is what sets it apart from your typical Thai. Great chef, great staff... You will not be disappointed if you like Thai!

This is a Family setting Thai Restaurant, great food, but small space. It fills up quick. They are extremely accommodating for people with Gluten Sensitivity. Have been twice and will definitely be returning. You will not be disappointed. It can get loud when busy so if you are sensitive to noise you may want to go when they are not... More

There are only 3-4 parking spots out front, which were all taken. I drove around for about 20 minutes before I found street parking about a block away on a busy street. Apparently their customers are allowed to park in the neighboring lot, but there are no signs to indicate that. When I arrived, there were about 6 other customers,... More

My husband and I arrived for dinner expecting something different. What we received was so much more! This is one of the best dinners we have ever had in Columbia. Our waitress, Rachel, was so wonderful and full of helpful suggestions. My husband ordered the duck, and I had catfish in a green curry sauce. Both were spectacular! You can... More

My daughter lives in Columbia and this is her favorite restaurant, so whenever we visit we always go here. My wife and I are world travelers and we have been to Thailand ( I've gone 4 times). I think this is as good as Thai food gets, and that is quite good. Very small place with no reservations but very... More
