I had the luck to come in this wonderful restaurant this week and we were set on a table next to the beach. The wine list is outstanding! I had the ocean and earth dish composed of two lovely tenderloins mounted by two scallops but what made this dish hold together was this incredible sauce on the side... Perfect athmosphere,... More

We had our wedding at Zazan and chose the Western degustation menu which included beef carpaccio, lobster ravioli, cod with chorizo sauce, chicken breast with asparagus wrapped in bacon and to finish a chocolate desert with passion fruit sauce. Since the wedding our guests haven't stopped talking about how good the food was, the chef and staff at Zazen made... More

We went for the "Taste of Thailand" menu and found it to be exquisite. The price was over what you may expect for the island but way under what you would pay in any western country with the same standard. We will return next time we visit Koh Samui.

Perfect spot to experience a refined environment and is perfectly suited for a romantic dinner. Highlight was their underground excellent wine cellar, well presented dishes and the extensive menu choices. Make sure to reserve as it's quite busy at least if u want to have a nice table just in front of the sea. Well done zazen team! Will be... More

Excellent location, quality cuisine and friendly staff. We took the thai discovery menu, which was nice, both in presentation and taste. It was however way too much for 1 person to handle: we could have easily eaten 1 menu with the both of us, and it would still be ok. Prices are high for Thai standards, even for koh samui,... More
