Saneh Jaan

Thai - $$$


After last year’s renovation of the Sindhorn Building, with the Glasshouse food complex in front and a few restaurants inside, a sizable traditional Thai fine-dining restaurant has finally been added to its collection of swanky dining spots.  

Contrasting with the old-school Thai food, Saneh Jaan sits in an elegantly designed, contemporary space with plenty of style. The large, high-ceilinged dining hall is lined with photos of attractions from around the country as well as pieces of writing by nationally-renowned poet Naowarat Pongpaiboon. A red-dominated lounge welcomes guests, while private rooms sit on both sides of the space.  

Food guru Torroong Jarungidanan, who wrote a food column in Matichon, published two cookbooks and also owns Simmer by Praha in the same building, was brought in to devise the menu, which is built around selective Thai ingredients—shrimp paste from Krabi, pomelo from Nakhon Pathom, local KU beef, and veggies which the owner grows in the restaurant's own garden on Soi Tonson. The herbal Northern-style gai baan kua bai jan (B550) sees free-range chicken stir-fried with wild basil, while the gaeng ranjuan (shrimp-paste pork soup, B380) features local Kurobuta pork tendons. The five-spiced egg with soybean paste showcases egg braised for three days with baby pork belly and tofu, resulting in a super-firm egg and powerful flavors. Somchun (B350), a rare dessert of fresh fruits in citrus and kaffir lime syrup, is also on the menu.   

Sompong Boonsri (also of Cigar One, in the same complex) heads the lounge bar and has created an eponymous signature cocktail (B250), which features Disaronno Amaretto, lemon, orange juice and syrup. He also curates the long list of more than 40 whiskies (from B220). Wine starts from B250 by the glass.   

Saneh Jaan provides bold Thai flavors in an elegant setting, though neither of those things come cheap.
