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 enjoyed the meal, cocktails and wine. The service was excellent and the vegetarian meals offered on the menu were tasty. We appreciated the effort to cater for vegetarians, something many other high end restaurants didn't do. We'll be back.

We aim to improve our vegetarian selection and continue to do so. We also are always willing to cook for individual requests so we try to accommodate everybody's wishes. Thanks for the review, hope to see you again soon.

I ate at the gallery twice during my time in koh tao. Food is fantastic and staff are super friendly. Treat yourself to a smoothie or cocktail. Just delicious.

Chris really knows how to make you feel at home and how to treat customers. Add a great Thai Chef, very well prepared cocktails and a Photo Gallery next door (with Chris pictures hanging on the wall) , the result is amazing!
We really enjoyed Thai food served at the Gallery. The food itself is very well prepared and presented but once again, the difference is made by the excellent service provided by the owner of the place. We only found the same level of attention in another restaurant in Koh Tao which otherwise is very difficult to find. Yes, as I read it is a little more expensive than the average Thai Restaurant, but it is worthy.
We did not make a reservation but went by anyway and waited for a table while sipping on a cocktail and viewing pictures next door. I strongly suggest you to make a reservation if you do not want to wait but if you end up waiting, you can still enjoy the photos! :)

Glad you enjoyed the whole Gallery experience. We are shortly opening a wine bar in front of The Gallery to make that wait for a table a more special experience in itself. Ice cream cafe during the day, wine bar in the evening. Hope to see you here again soon.

My family and I ordered take away. The food was excellent. We have travelled around Thailand and this was the most authentic and delicious Thai food we had since.

One of the highlights of Koh Tao!

If there is one sole place you want to have dinner at on Koh Tao, this is it. Do not miss the "Photographer's favorite" fish on the menu. The owner, Chris is one of the very few on the island offering 100% fresh fish from the day for all dishes.
Enjoy!!
