Description: Gourmet Thai restaurant with a view through The Photo Gallery. Beautiful, chic, cosy and personal. We serve a relaxed yet full menu at lunch from 12pm until 4pm and we remain open all day until 10pm for dinner. Authentic Thai food with true Thai flavour using only the freshest ingredients and the finest cuts of meat. We also have a fine selection of vegetarian dishes and an extensive wine and designer cocktail list. We offer you a fine dining experience in a creative atmosphere providing the highest standards for a discerning clientele.

“Best meal on the islands”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Wow - we had to wait about an hour for a table for 6, but it was worth it! The food was dynamite, and we enjoyed everything! Although the portion sizes were on the smallish side, we loved everything! The ambiance was great, and the cocktails were well mixed. The owner is friendly and sincere, and we were sad that we discovered this gem on our last day. I would highly recommend a visit to this great restaurant.

“Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013 via mobile

I really can't add anything that hasn't been said before: very nice (small) restaurant. I think it will be the best on our trip (we only have a couple of days left)

“Good service & good food! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Chose the gallery as it is close to everything and was highly recommended. We were seated quickly and the staff were friendly.I ordered crispy chilli pork and my boyfriend had chicken Curry both were delicious and were served at the same time which is a rarity I'm Thailand! Also had the satay chicken for starters which was amazing!! Very good value.

“Quite possibly the best Thai I have ever eaten”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

A small yet classy restaurant with a very chilled out vibe just off the main strip of Sairee run by a British expat and his thai wife. I overheard him saying the idea behind this restaurant was to make tasty authentic thai in comparison to the bland crap you often get in touristy areas - my god he was NOT lying!

Every dish we had was a showstopper, but special mention has to be made to their satay chicken - "grandma's secret recipe", so secret in fact that she hasn't told any of the cooks how to make it, instead conjures it up in bulk in her home on Koh Pga-ngan and ships it over.

We will DEF be back!
