My friends and I have been visiting saffron on and off for the last 6 yrs at least, maybe longer. It's one of our favourites. However our last visit was disappointing, not with the standard of food but the setting, ambience and service. The setting, perhaps temporary, was cafe like, the service nothing like it had been previous, exception was... More

Good quality Thai food with great service. Make sure you read through the dress code and dress accordingly before you get there. If you didn't dress long pant/ skirt, they actually provide black long pant for men and long skirt for lady. One of us had to change to get in and we saw quite a few customers changed it... More

This restaurant was a real treat. Exceptional thai food served with elegance and style. The service here was really great, attenting and propt bit not in your way or over the top. Our waiter Wichan made the evening even more lovely!

We visited the restaurant three times during our stay and requested the Terrace where you get a great view and cooling breeze. On two of our visits we selected from the menu and although not extensive the menu is interesting and sufficiently varied for most tastes. The food was excellent and the little extras such as a muse bouche and... More
