The highlight is the fit out of the restaurant. Interesting seating and artworks on the ground floor, where we were seated. Don't be put off by the street frontage if you try the place. In terms of the food, I wouldn't rate it more than ok. We shared several dishes, none bad but nothing outstanding either. Pineapple rice, tom yum... More

Once we found the restaurant (which is quite difficult to find) we found the whole experience very satisfying. Trendy, modern interior with well trained staff is what every restaurant in Shanghai should have. The food is brilliant, really authentic and some of the best Thai food I've had in Shanghai

Super fun and delicious Thai place, not far from our location at Marriott Tomorrow Square. You take off your shoes and sit on these big cozy couches, waiters are friendly, and the place is too cool for school (check out the dumbwaiter and the star trek doors). We love Thai food, and this was a great night out. NOTE -... More

Thai Gallery stands out from a setting point of view, it has both smoking and non smoking areas, it has both normal sitting tables and low sitting Thai style lounges. The food and drinks variety is very wide and prices are very acceptable (count between 50 and 80 for every dish, also around 50 for every appetizer dish). Recommended!

I'm a picky eater for the most part and I'm not adventurous when it comes to food at all, my wife on the other hand is. She dragged me to this place and what a surprise it was. From the ambiance, to the seating arrangement, and the taste of food. I mean it's not a high class luxurious restaurant and... More

Best Thai food ever eaten even in Thailand ! Modern and classy decoration, really comfortable and pleasant. Have been there for a birthday and so perfect ! Try the upstairs space. And final argument : really cheap ! 40 to 70¥ for a dish , try the crab rice or the pineapple rice. Padthai and green curry are wonderful !

I used to live across the street from thai gallery years ago. In my memory, it wasn't anything special and seemed subpar. I went there yesterday for the first time in a couple years and it was much better than my memory. The service was great. The atmosphere is one of a kind. The food was much better than it... More

Staying in Jing'an

Neighborhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
