Saffron offers upscale Thai dining with one of the most dazzling views to be found in Bangkok. The restaurant and its adjoining Latitude Lounge & Bar, take up space indoors and outdoors on the 51st and 52nd floor of the Banyan Tree. While the epic panorama alone makes Saffron worth visiting, the food is no slouch either. Try the khong wang ruam, the restaurant's signature dish of popular Thai appetizers for two. The set comes with grilled chicken breast satay, fried sea bass rice noodle rolls, banana blossom salad, and crispy rice noodle wrapped prawns, all served with a variety of sweet and sour sauces. The goong yai pad prik gaeng karee saffron is also fabulous, consisting of mammoth jumbo king prawns served in a saffron curry sauce with coconut and potatoes. There are signature cocktails and a good wine list to compliment the food. It's also worthwhile to come a bit early for sunset to watch the colors fade and the Bangkok night come to life from above.
