Given the price of the restaurant you have, in general, higher expectations. And I will admit they meet those expectations. They take Thai food and bring it to the next level. Absolutely delicious food and very pleasant staff. Excellent cocktails and the buy one get one free doesn't hurt either from then bar. Atmosphere in the restaurant is the only... More

We decided to go to Saffron, as we used to have one in Bahrain years ago and really enjoyed it there. The setting is lovely, although it kind of seems like you are sitting in the lobby a bit, you do get over that. All the dishes were excellent and portions were large. Service was excellent, our waitress brought a... More

Men must remember to wear long pants even if you dress smartly but they will provide a nice pair of Thai tie-pants if you are in bermudas. Service were good especially the pretty lady from the bar where we were having drinks prior, served us during dinner at this restaurant. Must try the different types of rice.

Two years ago, while we again stayed at the Banyan Tree, the biggest disappointing surprise was their 'flagship' restaurant, Saffron. We were not only disappointed but also 'cross' and complained to the Head Chef, left unfavourable review and basically after three 'trials' avoided it. So, this time understandably we approached the dinner at Saffron with apprehension, to say the least.... More

This is a fine-dining restaurant at the Banyan Tree Phuket which I believe offers the best price/value ratio at the resort. The staff is very attentive especially to children. The food is really good and refined.
