The staff were attentive and polite and it seems the owner/manager cooks the food herself. My wife and I both chose Thai dishes which were beautifully prepared and presented.... More

My husband and I thought we should try saffron based on the reviews and they did not disappoint. We liked it so much we went twice even though it was a bit of a distance from where we were staying. Absolutely delicious!!

The food was very tasty, but certainly not the best thing I've ever eaten, the way people on the island rave about it. I think the trouble about a place being raved about, is that you set your expectations too high. It was lovely, the place is lovely, but in my opinion the food was average for the cost. The... More

great setting by the water, amazing dishes, great presentation. Get there not too late because during low season if no one shows up by 9pm they might close! Curries, spring rolls - all amazing. The Penang Curry and and Masaman curries were the best of it's kind we have ever tasted - this after many trips to Thailand and Southeast... More

Very good food and service. Presentation was superb. Staff were very attentive. Much smaller than I expected and I would imagine that it can get very busy.

Very cute little spot on the sea, really good food but a bit pricey if your on a budget at all (750bht for dinner for two with drinks).

Intimate, atmospheric and full of character; right on the sea and amid the jungle. There are just about a dozen tables and even if there are other guests it does not feel overcrowded. The presentation of the dishes is superb – no exaggeration! I guess you will not find anything of the kind on Koh Chang (and not only). Everything... More
