Set in a beautifully restored villa in Frogner, Sawan combines the finest ingredients and delicate Thai flavours to create a uniquely modern version of Thai cuisine. The restaurant’s cooking is both subtle and sophisticated, with complex flavours in perfect balance. Sawan’s elegant interior, with touches of Thai-inspired decor, is an ideal setting for intimate, romantic evenings and also larger gatherings of families, friends and colleagues. A highlight is the Sawan wine cellar which is well-chosen and extensive. Expert sommeliers recommend perfect wine pairings to accompany the dishes. Alternatively, you might try one of our handcrafted cocktails.

Sawan has private rooms that are ideal for larger groups, business get-togethers and special celebrations, including small weddings. The restaurant also has a seasonal terrace and garden which is open during the summer months from May 10 to August 25. At the beginning of September the terrace is transformed into an enclosed winter garden available for groups and private parties.  

Restaurant Sawan is proud to introduce our new restaurant. Restaurant Nomads by Sawan is an innovative Thai casual-dining concept. With a cosy yet indulgent décor and easy-going vibe, Nomads is an edgy, stylish counterpoint to Sawan's signature sophistication.

Inspired by original recipes from every corner of Thailand, Nomads by Sawan is an extraordinary culinary adventure. Exotic flavours and exceptional ingredients are transformed into Thai cuisine that's light, modern, and best enjoyed sharing-style with friends and lovers.

A gorgeous bar completes the laid-back atmosphere, with bartenders crafting classic cocktails and Thai-influenced original concoctions. As you would expect from a member of the Sawan family, Nomad’s boasts one of the finest wine cellars in town.
