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

The place is run by two relaxed British guys. Rented a bike here and the owner didn't want a deposit of passport, was honest and said that he wasn't bothered about cosmetic scratches, but if I broke anything or had a flat tire take it to be fixed before bringing it back (loads of cheap mechanics shops everywhere in koh...

If your on Ko Tao on a Sunday night, you need to eat dinner here. The Sunday roasts they do are amazing. Its a huge serving of a traditional English Sunday roast including a Yorkshire pudding. The place has a real buzz about it and having gone back another night for drinks, its clearly a popular place on the island.

This bar is great if you want to escape your average annoying teenage travel crowd, it has great food, live music and drinks!! It's a very chilled and a great place to go and socialise, would highly recommend!

Introduced to this place by a Canadian dive instructor living on Tao and very glad he did. Great live music and big tasty burgers. Busy place even in the low season, friendly staff and epicly named drinks. Go and pay them a visit to find out

I can honestly say there is no other bar quite like Banyans. Take the family along for an evening that wont be forgotten anytime soon.

Bartender ripped me off. Accidentally handed her a 1000 baht note and she said no it was 2 x 100 baht notes. Clearly saw the 1000 baht bill in her hand before she put it away. My fault ultimately but she totally took advantage. Also it was happy hour and she charged me full price anyway. Won't be going back... More
