Sathorn welcomes the missing link in Thai fine dining.
Saawaan is the missing link in Thai fine dining. While Nahm has the authenticity, Le Du the French technique and Sra Bua the molecular stuff, this new spot from Team Issaya pitches itself somewhere between the three: 10-course tasting menus of Thai dishes your average tourist has never heard of.
Head chef Sujira "Aom" Pongmorn steps away from Baan Padthai to reinvent fermented beef salads, crab fat dips, grilled pork neck and spicy-sour soups as delicate tasting portions that we’re confident compete with the top tier of Bangkok fine dining.
For the fixed price of B1,950 , it’s also a moodily-lit, glamorously appointed, genuinely-special-feeling steal.
Teetotales will find a local tea pairing (B680), though the wine list is also superb.
