My husband and I came here expecting Indian food since it was under Indian listing .. However turned out to be a Thai place .. He ate his meal and loved it and there r many veg choices here however that does not make it Indian and this is misguiding for people who have faith in trip advisor and come.

Had dinner at Saffron on the last day of my stay at Koh Samui. The restaurant was set on a stunning location, overlooking the Gulf of Thailand. Go at about 6:00pm for drinks to watch the sunset before you have your dinner. The food was flawlessly executed and delicious beyond words. While not as innovative as Nahm, taste-wise they are...

After being disappointed by the general standards in Koh Samui it was refreshing to be in 5* luxury. The golf buggy ride to the restaurant through the grounds was... More

Even though we didn't stay at the Banyan Tree Resort while in Ko Samui, we definitely liked eating here at Saffron. The ambiance was splendid as we enjoyed the views atop the cliff from day turning to night (unfortunately on the wrong side of the island for a sunset view ;). The food was excellent, flavorful and nicely presented. We... More

We were staying for a week at the Banyan Tree Hotel and treated ourselves to a meal at Saffron on two occasions - so, of course, it was certainly good enough to bring us back a second time. However, for a restaurant with such a good reputation, the service on our first visit was a little grumpy and unfriendly (to... More

We were very lucky to get a table in this place with looks over the amazing Banyan Tree resort. The food was delicious; Thai with a twist with some lovely touches in terms of flavours and presentation.
