We love Zazen and visit it for lunch each time we go to Samui. The food is delicious and the presentation is very special. Make sure you try a cocktail too! Sitting on the balcony overlooking the beach and sea, sipping on a cocktail with a light breeze - what could be nicer?

This is our third trip back to Koh Samui and each trip we have always eaten at Zazen on several occasions during the holiday. This trip was no exception. From the moment you enter the grounds you will be dazzled by the beauty and the decor. The staff are wonderful, professional and very attentive. It's lovely to be presented with... More

From the minute we walked in, it was a disaster. Rude hostess, slow service, forgot our wine menu's, shuffled servers, & an incorrect check are just a few. A couple redeeming things were that the food was amazing and the management got back to us immediately after letting them know about our experience.

Very romantic vibes at the restaurant by the seaside. We ordered some seafood and lamb, tasted exellent. One of the best dinner I had for a long time. Price was... More

Amazing service, gorgeous atmosphere and delicious food. Menu is extensive and good mix of Thai and European food. There is a comprehensive wine list, a little pricey, but something for everyone.

Dear Laura, Thank you choosing us and for reviewing us. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your time with us. Indeed, the wines are more expensive than in Europe due to the high taxation of alcohol in the Kingdom of Thailand. We hope to have with us again. Best regards, The Zazen restaurant team More

We visited here twice on our recent holiday. Second time was to allow them to correct the mistakes previously, which they apologised for. A lovely restaurant, great choice of European or Thai menus. Well worth the price.
