A friend familiar with the restaurant scene in Columbia referred us to Baan Sawan when I asked for interesting, ethnic food and good ambiance. The decor is simple and elegant, with Thai accents. The menu has classic Thai items and creative, eclectic daily specials round out the options. A nice mix of music plays softly, allowing for conversation. Service was friendly, well informed and efficient. An interesting beer and wine selection is also a plus. We definitely recommend it!
