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.

Celebrated my husband's birthday here. We remembered from our last trip to Samui how good this place was, and we were not disappointed. Food and service were excellent. We made reservation but it turned out to be unnecessary as the restaurant was only half full. Prices were high but worth the value for the quality of food and ambiance. Will be back!

We were recently married at this beautiful resort. Rio ( our wedding planner) was absolutely fantastic. The setting was so romantic and our friends and family were very impressed by it all (some had never been to Koh Samui before). The food and service were amazing. The Chef's Symphony for desert was pretty awesome. Highly recommend it to any one who is thinking of getting married in Koh Samui. Ask for Rio....xxxx

We ended our two weeks at Koh Samui with a lovely dinner at Zazen. The setting is gorgeous - walking into the Zazen hotel at night past ponds and twinkling lights was quite magical.

The food was excellent, and service couldn't be faulted. Prices were of course high - particularly for the western options on the menu - but the Thai food was very reasonably priced.

The presentation of the desserts was spectacular - and delicious too!

Amazing food and presentation. The new Finish chef cooks on Michelin star level, pricing is very fair, much cheaper than Full Moon or Treetop restaurant. Must be a well hidden secret as restaurant was quite empty on our two visits. Outstanding food experience.
