The start of the evening was a bit rough....we were not staying at the Banyan Tree but wanted to try their Thai restaurant since it was well recommended and close to our hotel. Entered the lobby and loved the view. Went to the bar and asked for an "Old Fashioned" - 15 min later - no drink , so decided... More

We were sleeping in the Banyan tree resort. A nice resort. So off course we went to this restaurant. The food is really good, a bit expensive, but worthwhile.

During our stay in the hotel we kept coming to dine here - you just cannot stay away or to choose another restaurant knowing what awaits you here. Highly recommend the heavenly food here!

A very special restaurant! The food is very tasty and well presented with nice little touches. The staff are all professional and friendly. Atmosphere is intimate. A must do while last in Koh Samui if you require that something extra special.

We are staying at the Banyan Tree where Saffron is but I am reviewing it separately to the hotel. We have dined here three times. It is included in our half board package but we can have choices from the entire menu so my review is as it would be if I were visiting. Infact what I would say, three... More

Enjoyed an amazing meal with friends here. Food is fist class. Staff, although lovely, let it down a little. Slow with drinks and pouring wine. Something I expect when paying good $$. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We went there for dinner. When you arrive at the reception, you will be picked up with a little golf car and the staff will bring you to the restaurant which is located on a hill. Everybody is very friendly, they really care about you. First you start with a handwash ritual, it's absolutely nice. We had a great servant,... More
