Description: We like to welcome you to our beautiful garden surrounded restaurant and bar.Here we serve authentic Thai food and western food as well as delicious cocktails, ice cold beers and other refreshments.The Thai food is cooked by our mum who has more than 50 years experience cooking Thai dishes. You will experience the Thai food as it is meant to be!!!!You will be able to try some local dishes as well, which are not easy to get anywhere else.All our meat, seafood and vegetables are freshly bought from the market everyday.For the people who are homesick and want to eat something else, something international perhaps? We serve great western food like big burgers, pasta’s, sandwiches, salads and steaks. Our music consists mostly out of lounge and jazzy tunes… except for Tuesdays…. “Because every Tuesday we make party with live national and international DJ’s”.Welcome to THE GALAXY…!!!!! We Hope you Enjoy!!!!!

“Reasonable priced, delicious Thai food with nice atmosphere. Must try! Thumbs up!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

We were walking on the streets of long beach and we found this gem. Our first impression of the place was this place will be expensive. But after checking out the menu the price tags took us by surprise. It was relatively cheaper than other restaurants along the street. The restaurant is decorated with lanterns and cozy lightings. With the jazz music at the background this would be a very good spot for group of friends to sit down chill and hv a gd time or couples to hv a romantic dinner. The food was really good and not only that the people are really friendly. Overall thumbs up for galaxy!! I'm definitely going to go there again when I visit to koh lanta again.

“Great feeling !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

When I feel I want a nice evening with GREAT jazzy music and good food, I go to Galaxy Bar. Even if it is along the road side, it has this very intimate feeling. It feels like coming home, one can just hang around and just BE.

“Amazing Thai food in a beautiful garden surrounded location!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Built a little bit high up from the main road on Long Beach and set in a beautiful garden surrounded setting. This beautifully decorated bar and restaurant is where we spended and ate most of our two weeks holiday on koh Lanta. The Galaxy bar and restaurant is run by a lovely thai woman, who makes brilliant cocktails, and her boyfriend who is in charge of the music and plays mostly very good soul, lounge and jazz tunes. Her mum is the cook. And I have to say what a cook!!. I've travelled many times in Thailand and can say without a doubt this has been one of the best experience eating thai food in Thailand. I thaught the Paneng curry was amazing but the next day came the fish filet with triple sauce and oh my god.... even more amazing!! We've tried many dishes and none of them where dissapointing.
When it is busy waiting time can take a little bit longer, because there is only one cook, but if you can wait it is worth it a 100%. Tuesdays is there partynight with national and international dj's playing house music till late in the night. So... Galaxy bar and Restaurant.... if you not been there yet, go and check it out!! Higly recommended.

“Galaxy Restaurant & Bar- Tasty food, great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

i must say, first off, that this restaurant is quite beautiful and comfy,
with lush garden setting, ample spaces, alcoves, etc for lounging, high palm roof,
and is set up on a small bluff above the main part of Phra Ae Village-
the owners have spent much time & effort to make the place inviting,
and it shows in every detail...

even though the last time i visited, they messed up our order
(my partner ordered Pad Thai, not spicy- [as a local i would never order Pad Thai anywhere]-
and i ordered Yum Pla Merk- spicy squid salad- ordered VERY spicy-
we didn't open the cartons until we got home-
and they made the Pad Thai extremely spicy,
the Yum Pla Merk not spicy at all)
we were in a hurry (i was late for a gig), and they were busy,
since the kitchen was taking a bit of time, we had changed the order to take away;
i don't blame them- had we checked, we would've discovered the mistake,
and certainly, they would have rectified it-
but none the less, even w/the error-
the food was fresh & tasty, relatively authentic,
and reasonably priced...

there's a Tuesday night party until the wee hours w/ eclectic music selections from
an in-house DJ, sometimes visiting DJ's;
all in all a beautiful comfy setting w/very "chill" vibe,
one of the better options in Phra Ae on the main road...
