We are staying at the Banyan Tree where Saffron is but I am reviewing it separately to the hotel. We have dined here three times. It is included in our half board package but we can have choices from the entire menu so my review is as it would be if I were visiting. Infact what I would say, three... More

Enjoyed an amazing meal with friends here. Food is fist class. Staff, although lovely, let it down a little. Slow with drinks and pouring wine. Something I expect when paying good $$. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We went there for dinner. When you arrive at the reception, you will be picked up with a little golf car and the staff will bring you to the restaurant which is located on a hill. Everybody is very friendly, they really care about you. First you start with a handwash ritual, it's absolutely nice. We had a great servant,... More

We dined at Saffron twice, once A-La-Cart and once for Buffet. The dishes were tasty and prepared beautifully. However, a little bit on the pricy side.

Been trying few different Thai food and came across this restaurant where we stayed. Heard lots of things about this, so we tried it. Menu looks interesting enough, lots of local Thai food. We opt for spare ribs, fried fish, and beef curry. Surprisingly it's very very good. Even though is a bit pricey, around 800baht per dish on average,... More
