Saawaan has conceptualized and is headed by Chef Sujira ‘Aom’ Pongmorn whose imaginatively innovative interpretations of Thai gastronomy bridges the gap between modern and traditional cuisine.
Saawaan serves Thai-inspired cuisine with a modern twist using seasonal ingredients that are locally sourced including squid from a small fishermen’s village in Krab or organic rice paddy crab from Sing Buri. The 24 seater restaurant serves only 9-course set menu dishes full of creativity and feast of flavours, providing a truly special journey through Thai flavours, culture and art.

Saawaan’s design aesthetic nods to its name (Saawaan means ‘heaven’ in Thai) and focuses on Thainess; Dimly lit with golden lights, dark walls, dark wooden floor and the colourful wallpapers added a touch of warmth to the cold décor. The dining area featuring only 24 seats and another 6-seat counter at the bar for a closer peek into the kitchen.
The menu is a divided into 8 courses with each one representing the fundamental cooking technique used in traditional Thai cooking. Salad such as Koi Pla is usually served as a palate cleanser. This is a raw salad of Thai amberjack fish, roasted sticky rice powder, finely chopped Thai herbs and served on banana leaves which is perfectly balanced with a cornucopia of flavours that hit you all at once.
Other favorites are the Naem Nua Khao Tod, a play on a popular Isaan street food comprised of fried curried rice salad, with one-week fermented organic beef brisket topped off with confetti of golden-fried young ginger, herbs, red okra leaf and pickled cucumber. And, Krapaw Pla Muk, stir-fried homemade squid noodles with Thai holy basil sauce, Nam Prik, the Thai chilli-based dip made of premier crab fat and fiery curry paste,
You can choose either a wine pairing or a tea pairing with both hot and cold freshly-steeped and fermented wild tea from the north of Thailand.
