Description: Zazen Restaurant Samui is the Thai food lovers dream, the international food lovers reawakening. The atmosphere at Zazen Restaurant is one of romance, sophistication, and intimacy. At night, the trendy restaurant glows with the light of over one hundred candles. Soft jazz mingles with the sound of gentle waves and guests enjoy the pleasures of fine dining, elegant service and the entertainment of traditional Thai Dance in Samui. The restaurant is located on the beachfront at Bophut, with sweeping views of neighboring islands over the tranquil and gentle waters of the bay.

If you are in Samui. You have to vist this place. It is full of green live and by the water. Make sure you walk around by the corridors. The food is very good and they make any effort to compete. Plan to spend $70 per person or more with wine.

service is great (as with every part of the Zazen resort). Food was ok. but was a bit pricey. Im pretty sure we could have found something better for half the price at a less fancy restaurant. or even back home.

Classy, well priced, and excellent food.
The Zazen restaurant is situated right on the waterfront at Bophut. Credit must be paid here because it was soooo relaxing to have a nice drink by the lounge listening to cafe del mar before the sitting. It has a great vibe to it - the music was reminiscent of a beach-side Sunday session with resident DJ but not in any way like a dance party, but a very chilled environ.
The setting is amazing - as only beachside dining by candlelight can be.
The food was excellent and the staff attentive.
Best advice is to Book in advance, and arrive before 7pm to enjoy the setting fading daylight while sipping a cocktail on the outdoor lounges before dinner,

Loved everything about this restaurant. The menue was vast & resonably priced-you really do get what you pay for. The wine was a little on the expensive side, but always is in Thailand. Service was first class & the nightly entertainment was, well, entertaining. Couldn't ask for more than that.
