The food here really is excellent - we ate here three times and everything we tried was delicious, in particular the fish with tamarind and sweet chilli sauce and the banana pancake with pandanus syrup. The setting is right by the sea and it's very peaceful and secluded. The staff are really helpful, chatty and friendly. Highly recommended.

We were staying at Penny's and wandered down to Saffron not really knowing what to expect. We were all very pleasantly surprised! The setting was absolutely gorgeous, beautiful music and lovely views across the ocean and over the White Sand beach at night. Highly recommended for a romantic dinner. The food exceeded all expectation, immaculately presented! We got the Pesto chicken, Prawn banana ball and red curry. It was all highly rated, but the highlight was probably the prawn banana ball. Service was typical Thai friendliness. Great cocktail list as well, and reasonably priced.

Don't leave Koh Chang without first seeking this place out! It's on the road from White Sand to Klong Prao, about 2kms out of White Sand. Turn right where you see the Saffron sign and it's about 250 m down the road.

We read about this restaurant on trip advisor and we made it our mission to go and try it out while we were in Koh Chang. The food was so beautifully presented and it was really delicious. The staff were really friendly. Definitely going back there again!

Went there for drinks and a light dinner. Tried the fishcakes, thai springrolls and fried vegetables which allmost made it for a meal. Definetely going back there to try more ( the fish looked really good, at the neighbour table)
Really nice view from the small restaurant.

Shhh, don't tell anyone about this great little restaurant, otherwise it will always be booked out, what a gem. The restaurant is built in a native forest in rustic style surrounding literally right on water’s edge overlooking the Gulf of Thailand, exquisite surroundings. Did I mention the food is superb? However, don’t expect a take away type quick meal as all dished were cooked fresh, as we looked on. We didn’t mind, just sitting watching the sun go down over the sea was to die for. You won't be disappointed, wonderful service and great value for money.
