My husband and I love a good fine dining experience. As far as atmosphere, view, service, and presentation, this place does not disappoint. As you walk back through the resort to the restaurant, it is like walking through an Asian inspired fairyland with its water, bridges, and walkways. The view off the terrace is fantastic. The taste was pretty good... More

This restaurant has a great ambiance and a superb location overlooking the beach. The food and drinks are a little pricier than you could find in the area, but everything was cooked perfectly (we had the rack of lamb and the 'best of samui' seafood plates) and the service was excellent. The desert sampler was really great and something to... More

We came here for my wife's 50th birthday. The food and atmosphere is brilliant but very expensive. For our 3 course meal with a glass of wine each came to £150

My husband and I visited this hotel for dinner last night. We sought it out as an opportunity to check out the grounds for a future stay. The grounds were beautifully decorated and maintained and set off a lovely romantic ambience at night time, I am thoroughly impressed with their design. The resort is small and intimate and appeared no... More

I've given this restaurant 5 stars but only because I can't give it more. Zazen is totally enchanting as soon as you arrive and meander through the fairy lit path to the restaurant. We had truely the most romantic dinner of our lives, the service was impeccable and super attentive, the food was some of the best (and beautifully presented)... More

We found it because of some Ads in Magazines and so we wanted to try. Its a lovely elegant Restaurant on the Beach. We wanted to eat Thai and they have also nice options for Thai and Thai Food is also cheaper than the Rest, but of course not cheap but for sure also worth it. Nice Wine selection too,... More

Unfortunately it is quite humide and as it is outside it was not very comfortable. The seating id very romantic and it it was nice to find that... More

The restaurant is part of the Zazen Boutique Resort & Spa, the walk through the resort to the restaurant is beautiful and contains many photo (and Instagram) opportunities, the grounds are serene, amazing and well kept. There is a good view of the sea at the restaurant and I quite liked the ambience and thought it would look superb for... More
