This was not the first time we visited Saffron, we go every year, sometimes twice a year. I love Thai food and this place has the best asian food in the area.Because the place is food and quite popular, reservations are quite difficult to get, so I will advise you to make reservations ahead of time, specially if you have a large party.
We have been to the restaurant at different times, but this time, we made a reservation at 7:30 p.m. for dinner, it got dark pretty quick, so if you want to enjoy the lagoon view and avoid many mosquitos, opt for an earlier time.
We were greeted by the hostess with a big smile, put a flower in our (only ladies) hair, and offered us some bug spray. We were seated outside right on the lagoon, the only lighting was the candlelight at each table, so looking at the menu was a bit difficult. The setting is simply amazing, on a tranquil mangrove lagoon at Banyan Tree Mayakoba
I love seating outside and look at the lagoon, however because it was during dusk, there were a lot of mosquitos! and even if you put insect repellent, you will probably still get bitten.
Service was really good for the first half, then our waiter kind of disappeared. Once more people started coming in, service was slow. It was hard to catch anyone's eye.
The food is really good, but in my opinion it is bit pricey for Thai food, but definitely worth it though!
