Travelers' Choice
Galanga Restaurant & Art Gallery (to give it its full title) as a Thai-style 'house' complete with an open terra-cotta floored 'garden' patio with a tree and plants in front of the main building, with its ornate wooden Thai roof, which is set back some 10 metres from the busy road. The whole frontage is really beautiful and it's well worth taking a minute or two looking at it (as many people do) before entering... And passing through the walled garden with its fresh fish display to the left, next to an open kitchen where chefs are busily showing their skills in ‘pulling’ noodles, and the 11 tables for customers wishing to dine under the stars to the right, you come into the air-conditioned open
$14 - $24

Another fantastic meal at Galanga. This is the 2nd time we have visited, the 1st time in Nov 2018. I had the set thai menu which included an amazing coconut icecream and my wife had the gnocchi. The staff were great and we will definitely...be back in the future. A*More

During our stay at Chaweng / Koh Samui, we found this lovely restaurant directly at the Main Street of Chaweng. At Chaweng every restaurant tries to get customers into their location, but at this place we felt honestly welcome. The staff was so extremely friendly...and careful and the food very very delicious. So we came back for a few more times and every evening by walking by, we were friendly greeted by the lovely staff. The prices are a bit higher than other restaurants, but the excellent food is really worth ist. We highly recommend their curries! Thank you for making many evenings so yummy!More

This restaurant is situated near Chaweng beach and i most say i was really impressed when i visited. Good selection of Thai food they also have Italian food. I opted to try the italian vegetarian lasagna and i must say having visited italy a number...of times it felt like having it from italy! I also had starters and they were also awesome. Presentation of their food is excellent. Service was also impeccable. Definitely recommend if you are in the Chaweng region.More
