What you should expect from Thailand, very traditional

My partner and I ate here on 2 occasions, the food was spot on and what you should expect when you come to Thailand. Lovely views across the river and great atmosphere, highly recommend

Unfortunately, our friends wanted to eat here, but from it's rating on tripadvisor, I suspected that it wouldn't be good. First the good news! We had a great view of festival - the lanterns, fireworks and floating flowers. However, the service was terrible, and all the food was cold. Do I have to say anymore?

It was a wonderful place 10 years ago - not now! Just don't go! The food was just ok. The service was the worst of any where we went. We were early on the afternoon, so the first people there, no excuse for the lack of service.

This restaurant has a really romantic setting on the river. We came here wanting a more local experience and definitely got it. We tried the popular sai ua famous local sausage (our favourite) and Kang Hung Lay (pork curry with ginger). Another favourite was the Hor Mok Chiangmai (spicy baked chicken with glass noodle served in banana leaves). The staff... More

The restaurant is wonderfully located on the banks of the river and only a short walk from the town centre. The food is Thai but with some unique touches. It's hay day was some 15 years ago when the former First Lady visited for dinner - when her husband was still in the White House. Her taste seemed to catch... More

Not wanting to visit restaurants that are part of hotels, I also had the chance eating at the Gallery, great place near the river, good food, good service, and nice ambiance. It was quiet when I got there, possibly due to the rain, but we enjoyed regardless and would recommend this restaurant, nice entrance, the seating near the water isn't... More

Gallery was a below average experience. Service was lacklustre and the drinks average. The evening we went, there was a band playing traditional music, but they could do nothing to inject any atmosphere in the place. Wouldn't go back - plenty more livelier places on the street.

Only regrets are no air conditioning, but they did provide mosquito repellant. An upscale restaurant with excellent food and great views of the river. Excellent service was provided as well. A wide menu. Our concierge at our hotel, the Ping Nakara, recommended this place and took us there.

We were told that Riverside had good Thai food and mistakenly went to The Gallery thinking that was our intended destination. The food here was ok at best. The chicken wrapped in leaves appetizer was not very appetizing. The worst part of our experience here was the swarms of mosquitoes, which is not the restaurants fault, but it was part... More

Recently enjoyed a lovely meal at the Gallery on the recommendation of our Guest House owner. Beautiful building, interesting history, many artistic items for sale in the front, but sitting by the river enjoying very good local and Chinese cuisine is what makes this place well worth the visit.
