The start of the evening was a bit rough....we were not staying at the Banyan Tree but wanted to try their Thai restaurant since it was well recommended and close to our hotel. Entered the lobby and loved the view. Went to the bar and asked for an "Old Fashioned" - 15 min later - no drink , so decided... More

We were sleeping in the Banyan tree resort. A nice resort. So off course we went to this restaurant. The food is really good, a bit expensive, but worthwhile.

A very special restaurant! The food is very tasty and well presented with nice little touches. The staff are all professional and friendly. Atmosphere is intimate. A must do while last in Koh Samui if you require that something extra special.
