During the worst floods in 30 years in Koh Tao the Gallery was the only restaurant where I wasn't worrying about getting a food poisoning. I felt comfortable enough to order fresh summer rolls for starter and they were spectacular. The place is neat and cosy and the staff extremely friendly. We could see to the kitchen from our table...

I have been traveling Thailand for 1 month and since I do not know where to go in the food, I chose to come to dinner with my girlfriend at the Gallery! What can I say: Exceptional service and fantastic food, the best restaurant of recent times. The best menu ir Thailand! Highly recommend.

Woderful service and the best phad thai in the island! Waiters speak very fluent english. Prizes are bit higher than in the other restaurants around koh tao but the food is worth every single baht.

Amazing love this place ate here 3 nights in a row. Best food in Thailand!!! Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Koh Tao. The fried rice served in a pineapple is amazing, along with the fried banana in honey that comes with vanilla ice cream! Delicious!!!

Landed in Koh Tao after spending 10 days in Koh Samui. By far the best Thai food we've had on our trip. Highly recommended.

If this restaurant were in Tokyo or New York City, it would be IMPOSSIBLE to get a reservation. I had the crispy pork with spicy curry sauce, a coconut lassi, and the shrimp balls - amazing. If I had the time, I would visit every day until I worked my way through the menu. The prices are dirt cheap (considering... More

If you're a fan of degustacion meals of exquisite quality, this is the place. Order the Trust the Chef option, and prepare for an array of delicious courses, chosen by the chef based on what he/she is inspired by that day. The food was original, exciting, unexpected, delicious, high quality. Recommended for gourmands.

We had the chef recommendation tasting menu to get to taste a little bit of everything. The food is fantastic and there is a lot of it! Especially liked the chicken with cashew and coconut curry. Staff is very friendly and welcoming. Only area for improvement was the ordering of the wine where first wine we ordered was out of... More

Thanks, great review, great advice. Beware folks, we're on a tiny isolated island; we do our best to keep everything in stock but sometimes even we fail. Always working to improve our wine stocks. Thanks again. More

Quant little restaurant off of the Main Street. We met the chef who was very lovely and personable and her husband, Chris who was the main host. They were very friendly in greeting us. The service was quick, for island life, and they were able to give us suggestions on the best dishes. We had the chef's special curry in... More

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.
