Description: Gourmet Thai restaurant with a view through The Photo Gallery. Beautiful, chic, cosy and personal. We open at 12pm and remain open all day until 11pm (be aware that we may close early at 10pm if the restaurant is quiet so best to book for late sittings). Authentic Thai food with true Thai flavour using only the freshest ingredients and the finest cuts of meat. We also have a small 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. Please note that we are not a budget backpacker restaurant.

We had a wonderful evening on The Gallery with nice thai food and wine! (which is almost impossible in Thailand..) The Naga Blend from Siam Winery was so good as Chris (the owner) told us. Well besides from the wine, the atmosphere was relaxing and romantic, and the food was a masterpiece. Chris told us the chef does what she does best and even he doesn't know all her secrets. You could taste real food made with love and passion. Just the way we love it! We had one starter to share, and then to main courses with fish each. Todays special is highly recommended. The prices was not bad either. Be aware that if you're many people in the company we believe its necessary with a reservation.

Thanks for the review and all the good advice. We do always have a selection of specials that aren't always of the daily boards so please feel free to ask for advice.

Thanks for your review, we hope to see you here again soon. As we are situated just outside the busiest area of Koh Tao's Sairee Beach, we do enjoy a great location as well as a bit more tranquility than some other areas, glad you enjoyed it.

Excellent quality of food and great service. Ask Chris (owner) for recommendations. Thai wine was good too.

Totally worth to go there, but book in advance the place is small.

Glad you enjoyed your experience at The Gallery, and thanks for passing on the good advice, book in advance as we are only a small restaurant. Or come for lunch when it's usually fairly quiet.
