Zazen is an award-winning restaurant in Bophut that presents traditional Thai regional dishes with fine-dining touches, sprinkled throughout with culinary flair and brio. The extent of the care put into each dish is reflected in the high cost of dining here and subsequently, the French chef spares no effort in his quest for perfection – even growing his own herbs.
It has an award-winning wine cellar. Décor is elaborate but not overdone, with Moroccan touches, Louis XVI-style furniture and a state-of-the-art open kitchen. Part of the Zazen Boutique Resort, it’s a beachside stroll away from Bophut Centre towards Mae Nam.
