“Overpriced”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

And the tea comes in teabags.

Yeah, right. Teabags. Like you can buy in every cheap supermarket.

Value for money: not for the customer. Only for the hotel.

Sucked.

“Best on the island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

Looking for the best dining experience on the island? Dont look further, you have found it!
Truffle menu was a real pleasure for the palate, great combiation of ingredients and dishes, seating comfortably with great views on Bophut bay and by your side the open Kitchen with Zazen french Chef concentrating on your next dish. Real pamper! Will be back!

“Now we are talking!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

Had a wonderful dinner at "Le Salon de Ti" at Zazen Resort in Bhoput.
I can only recommend the place. Everything just falls perfectly fine! The ambiance as you walk in is very cosy and quiet. Music is just right...so is the lighting! As you sit, a lovely young waitress is taking care of you whilst Chef is in his "Show kitchen". Don't worry, you will not be disturbed by the noise of the pans or other kitchen utensils as everything is just set as a Classical Music Concert.
As food gets to the table, be ready to be surprised by the flavors and ingredients. Portions are good and Chef will come out and explain with pleasure what is "treating" your palate.
Place highly recommended and well managed by a young, motivated and professional team; from Chef, to the Food & Beverage coordinator and the Resident Manager. Great location, great food, perfect for a romantic dinner as well as Business dinner...what else to say??? Just go, try and enjoy...

“Fantastic new spot for high tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

This would have to be the classiest new place in Koh Samui for fine dining in an intimate atmosphere overlooking the beach right below you outside.

The service was perfect while here with the manager taking time to show me around and explain the niceties of this new place. Makes me wonder if the previous reviewer was in the same place.

Very impressive tea selection behind a classy bar where Europe meets Thailand. Of course there's a very impressive wine selection as well to go with the really nice food.

It was set up for a wedding reception while I was here checking places out and I will certainly return because it has a serenity and charm that's perfect for a group of friends I'd love to bring here.

“Unique setting for afternoon tea in a wall less 'salon' just a shame about the terrible service...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2012

Went with friends for afternoon tea. The room upstairs is absolutely stunning, gorgeous furniture, huge chandeliers and lovely views- menu looked fabulous with wide selection - and we didn't get half of it! Almost nothing for vegetarians (despite 3 things on the savoury menu which should have been delivered) After 3 tiny smoked salmon sandwiches were brought out, we offered to pay for another plate and were told they had run out! In a 5 star hotel! The tea was awful - almost cold and very weak. The cakes were really fantastic and delicious though! Staff attitude was terrible and they just didn't care. Waited 45 minutes for cocktails, tea and a plate of sandwiches. The manager did try to sort things out but it just wasn't good enough. We were the only ones in there and we had made a reservation well in advance. Would not go back unless they get their staff trained.
