"Nawa" means "New Beginning" in Thai  

Nawa features distinctive small and large plate dining, with culinary influences from Thailand, Japan, Vietnam, Indonesia and elsewhere in Asia.  The emphasis on everything we present is based on distinctiveness and excellence.  Part of our uniquely Asian experience includes custom-crafted Cocktails that showcase herbal and fruit flavors of the Far East.


The owner-partners in Nawa are all local, long-time residents of NE Indiana. We believe in sourcing our ingredients and services from local providers whenever practical. Nawa brings another distinctive, first-class option to the city.  We are proud to complement the current Landing re-development and we offer a diverse dining option for people visiting Downtown... and the ongoing Riverfront project.

We look forward to welcoming you to Nawa!
