Had a roast dinner here today and I have to say it was like it had been cooked by my gran from back home! Didn't expect a roast this good on the island. 5*

This place is a good place for local westerns to go get as smashed as humanly possible. It's a pretty fun time most of the nights! If you live on koh tao or want to meet locals, this is a good place to start. Everyone that works here is awesome

Loved this chilled bar, great bartenders and really good food! Had all of the tacos and they were so good, and so was the burger with awesome fries, not undercooked where you find everywhere else. Met some amazing people there

Good food. Good vibe. The bar is one of my favourite places in the world. John and Hannah make a good team. And rock this place. If you have some time in koh tao. Come to banyan. You'll love it

Best bar on the island - hands down. Tasty pub food, rowdy clientele, strong banter and honest service. If a better bar exists in the country, I have yet to find it.

Many of the bars in Koh Tao are very much the same same but being British I saw the humour in their signage when passing by and wanted to visit , a bit rough around the edges but good atmosphere and a great place to relax talk some BS and share some stories.

Had many great times in Banyan! Some loose party nights during the evening times with live music and BBQs, also fantastic meals for dinner and awesome Sunday Roast...

My favourite bar on Koh Tao! It's so different than any other place on Koh Tao. You never know what to expect there and probably that what makes it so special, it might be crazy, or chill and remember if you go there dive is the only 4 letter world they don't use there

My friend and I stopped here for a Sunday dinner. My first Sunday roast in 8 month! Very big portion for 300 Bhat, great value. The whole menu looks amazing! Cant wait to go back and try something new. So chilled and laid back!

Went here twice in two days since the food was so good. Had chicken gougons and meatballs! Both amazing! Second time had the chicken gougons again and a burger - both very tasty! Cheap drinks and food also. Would definitely recommend for a casual dinner and drinks!
