“Great place for quality drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

The staff at the gallery (street side) knows how to make nice cocktails, using only top quality brands and serve them in elegant glasses. Sitting in an stylish decorated environment, this place is top of the market in this area. The next morning we went back for a excellent cappuccino, Latte and two sweet breads which were made the same day in the attached bakery. This place knows how to prepare good quality food for people who appreciate that. The price is quite high, like you can expect, but the extra 10% service costs and 7% VAT are not included! That makes it a little bit overpriced at the end. Still, if you care about the quality of your drinks and like this kind of stylish places to relax, this is the place to visit at least ones during your stay along Chaweng Beach.

“Top marks for this one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We happened to be walking past one afternoon when I was drawn in by the yummy food photos posted on the sidewalk. Normally this strategy tends to end badly, but happily this time we were rewarded.

The food here really is excellent and you get what you pay for, which is gourmet. The only trouble is, for a casual meal it starts getting rather expensive, but as I say, really worth it, so save it for that special occasion. For the four of us, including non-alcoholic drinks and coffee, the bill came to almost BT4000. We ordered four mains and shared.

Apart from the food, the design, furniture, lighting, artwork and interior decorating of this place is also rather special.. a lot of different unique little areas come together to form a very impressive establishment in a very interesting part of town (see my photos).

“Bad food, Nice service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

We Passed by this place a few times and I must say the place looks very fancy.
After checking the reviews we thought will give it a shot.
We haven't tried the cocktails but one thing I can say for sure is that the food was bad!!!
I ordered the cob salad and pasta with chicken which were totally under seasoned and my husband ordered the Pad Thai which was drowning in barbecue sauce, you would expect that at least their Thai food will be good but we ate in some local restaurants where we paid 70 Bhat for a Pad Thai and it was delicious comparing to the disgustingly sweet Pad Thai they served in the Drink Gallery.
The service was pretty good, the waitress kept apologising and took the Pad Thai back and they tried to re do it though it didn't really help because the sauce was horrible. The waitress gave us 15% discount on the food which was nice.

“Amazing Cocktails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in for a quick cocktail tonight and was very impressed! Very eclectic feel with good music, great place to people watch with floor to ceiling glass at the front. You will pay more than elsewhere- $AUD10-12 per cocktail on average when you add the tax (as it's part of the hotel behind) BUT WORTH IT! Honestly, at home you'd pay 3 times as much for this quality of cocktail. Large and varied menu of both cocktails and food- definitely worth the stop.
