Good modern Thai food and good services at the 52nd floor of the Banyan Tree hotel. Have a drink at the open bar to enjoy the panaromic view and go to the Saffron by stairs.

The manager and waitress are very nice and patient to explain the dishes.

Even we requested food out of menu, but they still try hard to get us the wanted dish, thanks a lot.

The signature dishes tried (banana blossom salad, beef curry and mango with sticky rice) of course brought us great satisfaction.

A place worthy to re-visit.

We had a very nice time at the Saffron restaurant where my family and I had an amazing dinner overlooking Bangkok on the 52th floor. Food was delicious not to mention the great service. I recommend this place for special occasion. Prior or after your dinner, you can enjoy a drink at the vertigo sky bar on the top floor - experience guaranteed especially night time.

On our first night in Bangkok, we didn't feel up to leaving the hotel but our experience at Saffron told us we didn't need to.

Everything about the meal was terrific. Staff were friendly and helpful, taking the time to explain dishes we had questions about. They offered a hand washing at the table and brought out several complimentary dishes. We ordered two starters and two main courses and with the addition of the complimentary dishes, we were well and truly full by the time we left. Prices reflect the fact that the restaurant is located in a 5-star hotel but the quality of the meal and service reflect this, too.

I wouldn't necessarily call it a romantic restaurant - tables are too close together to achieve the intimate feeling a romantic dinner requires - but it was certainly atmospheric with Bangkok spread below us.

We overhead guests at the table next to us saying that they had enjoyed Saffron so much, they had eaten there every day of their 3 day stay. We couldn't fault the experience at all.

The reason why we decided to dine here was because we were too tired to leave the hotel to find a restaurant. Saffron serve contemporary Thai food, which wasn't all that great. We ordered a few traditional dishes like the Tom Yum Goong, Pad Thai, Stir Fry Morning Glory and a Curry Duck to share but it tasted only so-so. The complimentary starters were very good though. The food was rather costly, as we paid more than US$100 for our meal with just simple dishes. We also find the service to be average. We ordered our food with the waitress repeated our order correctly. But when the food arrived, instead of curry duck, they gave us curry chicken. We told them that this wasn't what we order and they were initially a little reluctant to change it. We had to tell them a few times that they gave us the wrong order before they offered to change it for us. Not too impressed with this restaurant.
