      Once in a lifetime !
      Everything was PERFECT and it is worth every penny. Highly recommended to anyone visiting Chiang Mai. Yes it's not cheap and an early start but its once in a lifetime. Everything was very well organized the view was absolutely spectacular. I would definitely do it again next time I visit Chiang Mai.

      A must-try when in Bangkok! Everything was super beautiful and worth every penny!
      I had a blast dinner time with my friends. They loved it too! The food was good, the musical band played so well & she had a good voice. Food was a lot and they kept on filling it out. This his a budget cruise and so worth the money.

      Below average .
      Firstly , the staff at the line-up near the pier were not communicative in where the line started or ended . We arrived early and they told us to hang around but ended up being told to go the back of the queue when it was time to board (a queue we were not aware was there for this specific cruise) it felt messy . Secondly , there is no organisation as to tables going to the buffet stations , as soon as the boat ride started , everyone got up at the same time to help themselves and it was really frustrating and tough having to navigate the crowd. They should try to manage that timing a bit better and maybe try to allocate certain rows at a time to come to the station . The music was fairly good although the entertainers (Thai traditional dancers) were BASIC and begged for money at each table... we could not even see the performance from where we were sitting - we had to stand up and go to the front . The food was also below average . One positive is that the staff serving drinks were generally helpful and served with a smile . Many improvements to be made but I would not personally book with this cruise again … I’ve been on a few others that are better value for money in Bangkok .

      worth the price for a sit down experience
      Unlike the buffet style of other cruises, the atmosphere was very good as the thai meal was served slowly on a small cruise ship. Most of the passengers were tourists, and the seasoning of the food was quite mild. It was easy to eat with standard menus such as Tom Yum Kung, Massaman curry, mango and sticky rice. an excellent evening

      Love it, definitely entertained!
      Amazing! People told me this is more for kids, but they were wrong adults can enjoy also. The show was breathtaking and the castle and river of lights was breathtaking. I am just sorry it didn't last longer, as its a huge park. The Driver was nice and agency (IAsia) also provide with all info needed. Great Value as well

      Scam!
      We deeply regret this choice. This cruise is a complete rip-off. The food is really bad. The meal served is not worth half the price or even a third. The dishes served are not even mediocre. 100€ per person for a dinner including drinks is a lot of money, especially in Thailand. Here, we don't care about our customers. For the same price we dined the day before in a Michelin-starred restaurant and the dinner was a festival. We like sincere food, whatever the type or level of the establishment serving it. Here we're really in a tourist trap. Sure, the junk is pretty and the cruise pleasant, but it's not worth a third of the Payet price. The wines served are also mediocre. A Chardonnay that's too mineral, a rosé that's really no good, even though pink is an easy wine. The Californian red is barely acceptable. The service is entrusted to juniors who know little or nothing about hospitality, even though our waiter was a charming, attentive young man. Finally, they had completely forgotten my wife's birthday, even though I had informed them of it in writing at the time of booking and reminded them of it at the reception desk, where the young woman confirmed that she had taken note of it. All this is neither serious nor to be recommended. Don't waste your time or your money on this kind of booby trap. At lasr you have To pay in d’avance the full amont of the dîner and cannot ne chanceler even two months before,

      Relaxing paced wooden boat
      It was a very nice wooden boat, the service from entrance to the end was extremely good and “fine dining” higher class type of thing. I think the price is a bit high, but the service level was very high as well. I probably would have opted to do the cheaper ones with a buffet next time but this one was quiet and classy, suitable for a date night or something of that. Overall I think most people would be satisfied with this selection.

      Overall average experience
      Staff were friendly and attentive, but the food was very average, drinks weren't included and there was a hidden cost on the drinks you ordered. I'd recommend paying a little more for a better dinner cruise experience.

    Booked the Saffron cruise for the 4th March as part of an extended holiday in Thailand. We were staying at the Banyan Tree anyway, so took the free transfer from the hotel to IconSiam where the cruise embarked. From the outset the whole evening was run impeccably, with 'Jimmy' taking great care to ensure everyone was enjoying themselves.
    We had time prior to the cruise to wander around IconSiam, which was great.
    Once the cruise set off we were blown away by the attentive service and incredible food. A huge thanks has to go to our waiter 'First' who gave us perhaps the best service we have ever experienced in a restaurant. It is also worth mentioning that I am a coeliac and cannot eat any gluten. This was also identified and catered for entirely during the booking procedure where they ask you to declare any dietary requirements.
    The whole evening was incredible and it was an amazing way to see the city from the river too. Cannot recommend this enough.

    While staying in Bangkok, we decided to spend it on the new Saffron Cruise which turned out to be a wonderful night together. Each carefully crafted dish was better than the last and the elegant setting provided us the perfect atmosphere for a date night. The food was exceptional and Michelin star quality. The cruise is definitely not a party boat, but a classy way to cruise the river. Thank you again Nick at I Asia Thailand for booking the best seats for us and for the staff on board the boat.

    Planned by my wife. We went for the luxury dinner. The service was awesome, the food was awesome, great tasting with many flavours, the boat was amazing.

    Upon arrival we were welcomed with drinks. Sat down and got pictures taken. After this we were escorted to the dining area where we had many flavoursome dishes, thai performance and drinks.

    We then got a photo taken at the top and was given to us, they also bought me a birthday cake with candles and the dj played happy birthday.

    The whole experience was awesome.

    We had the reservations for months. Then just before we leave for Thailand they tell us that they suddenly overbooked. Really? Seriously? I booked months in advance. This just complicates our trip.

    They will try to bait and switch you into another cruise for the same price of a lesser quality ship. In our case it's the Aspara Dinner Cruise.

    This is obviously a bait and switch operation. They show you the nice fancy ship. Take your money. Then pawn you off you someone else of a lesser quality right before your booking so you're at a loss and unable to book somewhere else.

    Confirmation numbers mean nothing to these people. I completely regret booking with them.

    Dear Guest, Thanks for your comments and its great as I can also reply. Firstly we are not a Bait and Switch Operator. The Saffron Cruise has cancelled and moved clients to their sister ship the Apsara. You are speculating that this is a lesser ship than Saffron. I recommend that you read their review page to see how great a cruise this is. My team contacted you and advised you of the change, which you DID reply but what you forgot to mention in your review is that you can accept the change with a discount and free drinks as compensation OR we will refund you 100% back. Important information that you did not share. The Apsara is a deluxe cruise just as good as the Saffron. It’s also the same company as the Saffron too. We have never pawned you off, I understand that you’re upset but please do not make up stories as we also have the proof and happy to share this. You can contact direct nick@iasiathailand.com. Thanks, Nick

    The boat: 7/10
    Nice layout, premium furniture.

    The food: 5/10
    Nothing creative, quite basic but tasty and well presented. Quantity is light, we left the boat still hungry.

    The service: 9/10
    As you would expect from Banyan Tree, very good service, attentive, smiley and proactive.

    The atmosphere: 2/10
    This is far too noisy and you feel like in a cantine. The boat was full and you clearly feel there are too many tables for the space. At no stage you have a slice of romance, this is loud, messy, and too busy. How come they accept group tables next to couples? How come they accept so many bookings and squeeze the space that much? At this price you'd expect something different, more intimate, but what you get is no different than the big cheap Princess Dinner cruise. This is very disappointed.

    Overall: 4/10
    We won't repeat for sure. If you want an intimate and romantic atmosphere, prefer the Anantara dinner cruise. The food will be similar, you'll pay cheaper, and you won't leave the boat with a headache.

    Dear Tonxico, We're deeply sorry to hear about your disappointing experience aboard the Saffron Luxury Dinner Cruise on the River of Kings, and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience you encountered. Your feedback is crucial to us, as it helps us identify areas where we can improve our services. We take all reviews seriously and will be investigating the issues you've raised to prevent similar situations from occurring in the future. We are at capacity on a daily basis and are booked out weeks in advance which we feel shows the popularity of the cruise, complimented by mostly 5 star reviews. At no point do we sell more than capacity, in fact its under. After checking, we see that you never mentioned this to your waiter. This is the first step as the team could have solved your problem on the night. Especially for the food which as you know is personal to each individual. Once again, we apologize for any inconvenience you experienced, and we appreciate your valuable feedback. Warm regards, Paul

    I was in Bangkok for a quick stop over. This is the second time we used I Asia Thailand (first time was Set 19). This is a brand new boat which appealed to us so we booked with I Asia and then received our confirmation and also sent dietary requirements. We arrived at Icon Siam and the staff there were waiting, expected us and also had us down as a VIP customer (I Asia must have done this). We had the best seats on the boat.
    The food was delicious, hot and definitely home cooked; fantastic offering of Thai-style cooking. There was a lot of food as well!
    The Saffron is beautiful vessel and even though drinks were expensive its well worth it. We even received a complimentary professional photo from our evening on the cruise. Views were beautiful, service was wonderful and definitely recommended

    It was a very pleasant dining experience! The food and service were amazing. The view was spectacular from the boat and we ordered drinks on top, which were priced like regular fine dining but it was all worth it as the boat and view made this a night to remember. Will definitely go back the next time we visit Bangkok.

    You board the cruise at Iconsiam and seated on the top deck with a welcome drink. You can choose between bar stools or a sofa seat. When dusk sets in, you’re invited down to the dinning hall which has full glass windows to enjoy the view along the river.

    Dinner was a 4 course meal. Especially love all the appetisers and the curry river prawns. Desserts were great too with mango sticky rice and sesame ice cream among others. Wait staff extremely friendly and was always willing to help take photos for the whole family. A thumbs up from us!

    After dinner, you may proceed back up to the top deck and enjoy the sites along with the cool breeze blowing. The views of the lighted Rama VIII bridge and Wat Arun up close was breathtaking. Certainly well worth taking a river cruise.

    Even the toilets had huge circular windows to view the outside and extremely clean. Being Banyan tree, it does smell of essential oils too.

    Will definitely go on this cruise just for the food again. I highly recommend this Saffron cruise.

    This is a high end introduction to Bangkok with this dinner cruise. We had a great welcome by the staff and they really do look after you. The food was inspiring and the flavors were outstanding. The views were breathtaking and the time we spent passing the lit up Wat Arun was the highlight of the cruise. If you want to party with loud music then book a party cruise. If you want an exceptional evening, book with Saffron. Big thanks to I Asia Thailand who were also outstanding with our requests.

    The food was really excellent, very different to the "buffet fodder" you might get on cheaper cruises.

    It took some time to get a drink from the outset. In total across the evening I ordered 2 vodka tonics and one cocktail. The total price for just drinks was 3,400 Baht!!

    The boat was comfortable and nicely lit. The staff were very pleasant.

    Dear Guest, Thanks for the 4 star review. The Saffron is one of the most highly sought out dinner cruises in Bangkok. This luxurious dinner cruise is sold out most nights and with the moon bar on board, the experience is highly recommended. We will pass on your comments to the team, Regards, Nick
