Lovely little open-air bar where you can meet like-minded divers and have a good cocktail and and a chat about the day's diving! Cocktails not too badly priced either!!

Great atmosphere, great people and the owners were really nice too. Great place to meet with the locals as well, laid-back chill atmosphere.Has a very stripped back feeling to it and it's great to spend a night at drinking and socializing. Not all that loud and not all that quiet, perfect for me.

Banyan Bar made our trip to Koh Tao even more awesome. The bar had a chilled undiscovered vibe to it, despite being one of the best known spots on the island for locals. The fantastic drinking crew and staff that brought the bar to life were fantastic fun, this teamed with hilarious cocktails and some of the best burgers, chips... More

This is a MUST if you come to Koh Tao!!! If you want to hang with the locals and hear sound interesting stories I highly suggest Banyan. You can always have a Beer or 12, they have some fireball shots Plus some yummy American style comfort food. There's lots of tables and spots to hangout. For sure the most fun... More

Great food, and the best Yorkshire puddings I've had outside of England, but the drinks are even better and a great price!

Firstly this place isn't really for family's.. But then there's a sign out the front to warn you of that. But the food was delicious, especially the Sunday roast and their burgers. This is the place most of the locals hang out, so half the time the people behind the bar are too engaged in their conversations to notice you... More
