Banyan Tree Lang Co’s Signature Restaurant Saffron

There are those rare moments when you know, after taking the first bite of the starter, that the meal will be nothing short of amazing from start until finish. To reach this restaurant, it takes 45 minutes by plane ride from Ho Chi Minh City with an hour car ride from Danang International Airport.

Saffron is Banyan Tree Lang Co‘s signature restaurant situated on a hilltop overlooking the ocean, Banyan Tree property, Angsana property, and Laguna Lang Co Golf Course designed by Sir Nick Faldo.

The starter offers two levels of heat with a tomato based option and a strong citrus embedded with chilies for the second option. Both wake up the palate while the third cools down the heat with a sweet coconut milk based sauce.

We selected the Orchid Set, which introduces the very best dishes from Saffron. Phuket noodles imported from Thailand envelop the shrimp. Delicate banana blossom offers a pleasant layer of texture to the prawn salad, with no hint bitterness banana blossoms tend to have.

Saffron is not shy on flavor. Tom yum goong is the perfect example exemplifying the high intense flavor that opens up the sinuses and teeters at the brink of too much seasoning. Yet, each spoonful leads to another until the very last drop of soup is gathered.

By the time we get to the main, we are stuffed. We continue on with the savory massaman beef curry. The pickled vegetables cut the delicious richness of the curry in between bites with saffron infused rice.

The dessert trio is impressive. Coconut creme brulee with sugared ginger is baked to the perfect consistency with the right amount of crisp caramelized sugar. Saffron’s rendition on the popular sticky rice and mango is a delightful fun treat. Bits of fresh coconut meat is churned into the best coconut flavored ice cream I have ever had.

Saffron’s authentic and sharp flavors awaken the palate and senses in each dish.

    Hello lovies,

    I love this site. I love that you guys have both worked on this and it looks like its going very well. I’ve been meaning to start my own blog for so long and finally with downtime in the states, I was able to. Thus, introducing … Bisousbaby! I linked you guys as my favourites :)

    I have so much more to learn and things to do to call it my own. I’m still testing out many creative choices.

    Another thing I need to touch up are my photos. I’m considering selling my 7D to get a 60D. What are you guys using? I have been stuck on snapping in automatic. I know its a terrible habit for photos and I should learn more about photography and colors. I love that yours are so vibrant!

    I wanted to leave a detailed comment to firstly, tell you guys how much I love you guys, how much I love this blog & that I will be seeing you both this summer.

    Love you,
