One of our best meals from start to finish. Staying elsewhere we had a golf trip at the winding path to this lovely restaurant at the top of the resort. We choose to eat early on order to enjoy the fantastic view of the sea and surrounds. On arrival the ladies are presented with an orchid for you hair and... More

We started of with excellent cocktails and Hors d'oeuvres on the balcony accompanied by the breathtaking views of the Island and cove below. Over the course of the night we were presented with every dish on the menu, each cooked to perfection and... More

The food at Saffron is absolutely spectacular, I particularly liked the Beef, main course which was to die for!!!! Its a gorgeous location, which we took for granted as our villa... More

This is an high class experience! We had a coctail in the bar befor a golf baggy took us through the resort, up to the restaurant. The view is amazing and the food is very elegant and good. The Chef and the waitresses were very friendly. A very good experience!

We dined here on our last night in Thailand last summer. We ordered some starters which came very quickly and then some different variations of thai curries between our family. Three out of the four meals arrived then for some reason the fourth meal for my mother took over an hour to arrive! This is not acceptable at all and... More

They tantalised us with tales of breathtaking sunset views, an exceptional menu and a sneak peak of the world class Banyan Tree brand resort via golf buggy. We were a little sceptical after it being... More

We were in Koh Samui about 3 weeks ago and tried as many good restaurants as we could, but Saffron was just exquisite. Up until last year, I used to own 4 restaurants (in a different country) so I know all sides of the restaurant industry, and we have been to many outstanding restaurants all over the world, and we...
