  • The interior, the cloth napkins and lights made you feel like you were in a fancy restaurant for sure. The British owner are very nice and caring, came around our table a few times to make sure we got the service we deserved and checked that everything was to our liking! Oh and he is a photographer and his gallery attached to the restaurant, do you self a favor and ga and take a look to his beautiful artwork after dinner! Had a lemon juice to drink, the juices are 120baht per drink. You can get the same tasting juice for 40baht out on the street, felt overpriced. Padang Curry with rice was excellent in taste and presentation but portions are small. The food is meant for you to order in several items and then share it with your company. However it was a bit pricey for us who backpackers with a tight budget. Still giving it a good rating since the food and service was really good!
  • We enjoyed eating in this restaurant! We chose the "Trust the Chef" formula to try a little of everything they offer and we were not disappointed! It was very tasty and surprising. Spring rolls, chicken, steamed fish, prawns in a curry sauce, a dessert made from hot coconut milk not to mention everything, we had a real good time. I'll just not advise this restaurant for people on a very low budget as it is not as cheap as other restaurants around but the quality is extraordinary and if you are food lovers like us, it's perfect for you!
  • An excellent experience in Koh Tao. Highly recommend for the crab fried rice, the best fried rice I've ever had. Very appreciate that they use steel straws instead of plastic. Love this so much. The gallery also has some amazing sea creatures photos, worth to take a look. P.S. the price is relatively high but worth for that
  • Best food we had during our trip through Thailand. Great staff and a nice/cozy atmosphere. Make sure to have dinner here during your stay at Koh Tao!
  • The best Thai meal I've had in the 1.5 months I spent traveling around Thailand. Do yourself a favor and get the "chef's choice". You'll be very full but very happy. They ask what level of spice you like and then prepare you a multi course meal of the chef's choosing. I think it was 7 courses of small to medium size plates. The cost was less than half what I paid for similar multi course meals at some of the best restaurants in Bangkok, and dare I say... The Gallery beat out all of them in how tasty it was! I was literally dancing in my seat to the tunes they have playing, as I ate. That's how good it was. Individual dishes are also extremely reasonably priced. 100-200 THB each if I remember correctly. Service was excellent, all I had to do was turn my head towards the counter and the waitress would be walking in my direction. The ambiance and decide are very well done too, with a photo gallery filled with beautiful local photography by one of the two owners attached to the restaurant as well. Do your heart and your stomach a solid, and come here if you are in Koh Tao.
