Normally, one expects a place like this to be very busy. When we got there at 9:00 pm, only one other couple was seated. Throughout the two hours we were there, only another table of four was taken up. That is to say, we lucked out and really enjoyed the evening. Not only was the place more or less ours... More

The food had great flavour and apperence that left you satisfied but not over full. Highly recommend dinning here. Well done to David Hamilton (exec chef) and staff for a... More

We went for the set menu, which included some fancy takes on regular thai dishes. Service was attentive and respectful. Favourite course was the green curry, least favourite was the Tom Yum which was a little overpowering with lemon grass & galangal, left one wondering which parts you were supposed to eat. Good but brief wine list, we enjoyed a... More

The Banyan Tree is a high end hotel, and the Saffron is their 'signature' restaurant, and so high prices are expected. That said, the restaurant is immaculate and classy, the service is exemplary and the food is exquisite. Thai specialities, beautifully prepared and stylish, modern presentation. In many ways this restaurant is faultless, so why not an 'excellent' rating? We... More

Banyan Tree's signature restaurant. The ambience at the restaurant in Banyan Tree resort, Phuket is one of the best on the island. Well designed, trendy & comfortable. Offering a fine menu while the food presentation will have you taking photos to bring home. The cuisine tho, is not cooked to its true authenticity, as with most resort's palate for their... More

Delicious food. I really enjoyed the Prawns with Vermicelli, but the dessert was slightly disappointing - mango sticky rice. Also, it is a tad bit overpriced for Phuket, although if you are staying at the Banyan Tree, you really don't have too many options.

We ordered sea bass with chilli peppers, black curry pork ribs and green curry vegetables. They were all delicious but hot. Even the mild spicy is pretty hot. We were presented with three flavorful dipping sauces and rice crackers before our meals which we really enjoyed. Service was beyond excellent. I dropped a chopstick and our waiter brought over a...

Really good food and attentive service. Ordered the signature Red Curry and beef. When the dish was served the waiter pushed along a trolley next to our table and offered us 4 diffferent choices of rice. Unable to decide we asked for all 4! Together with Tom Yum Kung, an appetizer, and two cocktails the price came to 2000 baht.... More
