We dined at Saffron twice during our stay at the Banyan Tree - on the first night and the last night. The atmosphere was different on each night - quiet on the first night, busy on the second. The staff remembered us the second time around and treated us like royalty. Service is 5-star, which goes along with the 5-star... More

Everything about this restuarant is excellent. From the moment you are greeted at the door to the moment you leave you are treated as special. Food excellent. Ambience excellent. Service excellent. Cost, considering what you are getting very reasonable. Dress standard is smart casual, please no thongs, singlets or boardies!

Staff were very attentive and friendly, although we did have to wait a while for our bill (as they got quite busy). Food was delicious, and although the prices would be classed as expensive in Thailand you would pay double for this quality food in Australia. Would highly recommend the appetiser platter (yum!!) and banana blossom salad. They also wheel... More

We had a nice meal at a not-outrageous price (compared to other high end restaurants in the area) (THB 3,500 for two with mains, shared starter and some cocktails). Beware water prices, as others have advised. One thing that seriously let it down was the number of people very casually dressed (shorts and flip flops) and with multiple kids/buggies in... More

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
