That is basically the feeling i got when I ate here. The food is decent but the people who work there are snobs. I will never go back.

Don't waste you time or money -- This is a place that you don't want to go if your hungry and this is a sour of the moment choice - the seating area only has 8 -- YES EIGHT -- tables ! This restaurant is a converted old house it has a very claustrophobic feel because it is so cramped... More

This small slightly out of the way place is a favorite for their regulars because it has excellent Thai food and outstanding service. It is pricey but good.

Baan Sawan offers delicious Thai food in a small, charming spot that is very easy to miss as you sail down Devine Street. The staff are knowledgeable and pleasant. You are given the choice of proteins in all entrees - beef, chicken or tofu. This restaurant seems to have a loyal clientele - and I can see why.

I continue my search for the perfect dining experience. I did not find it at Baan-Sawan, but came very close to it! In town on business, I did a GPS search for a nearby Thai restaurant. Baan-Sawan was about 1 1/2 miles from the hotel, but I needed the exercise. It was well-worth the walk. I happened to be there... More

Very nicely decorated small restaurant with a great menu and great Thai food. I thought it to be expensive especially for Thai, never thought I would pay more for Thai in Columbia than I did in Phoenix Regardless the food is good and the best Thai I have had so far in this town, worth a try

On the SE edge of Five Points, this place has incredible Thai food, with a menu that is actually helpful in figuring out what you are ordering and how hot to order it. The wine list is also very well-written and useful, not to mention well-selected to mesh well with the food. Our waiter was well-trained and knew the menu... More

Baan and Motor Supply are my favorite restaurants. Baan is fabulous. I almost want to keep it a secret, so that there will be a bar stool available every time I come in to eat. Love the service,the family who owns it, and their dedication to providing a wonderful dining and drinking experience. Bravo Baan. love you guys.

Baan-Sawan is a great little restaurant in Columbia, just up Devine Street from Five Points. The food is fantastic and the owner/bartender, Sam, always has great beer and wine recommendations to accompany the food. Definitely worth a visit and one of my favorite restaurants in Columbia.

This place has the best Thai food we've had. We bring friends and family that hail from bigger cities here, and they rave about the quality of the food. The main drawback is that it's so small and can't accommodate more than parties of around 6. I highly recommend anybody in the Columbia area to check it out. One note,... More
