This was the last spot we had dinner at on Koh Tao. It was a great way to finish the trip. Authentic Thai food, and a friendly host.

Nice birthday meal. The fish red curry was great. Was brought a cheesecake with candles and the staff sang happy birthday! Food Maybe a little expensive but good quality.

Stumbled across this fabulous place whilst in the gallery next door enjoying the amazing photography for sale. After purchasing a perfect memento of our time in koh tao we were asked if we'd like to eat in the restaurant which is part of the gallery. My girlfriend and I had already commented to each other how lovely the whole place... More

We went here for dinner last night, and it was incredible!! The specialty (a curry served in a fresh coconut) was one of the best things I have ever tasted, and the pad Thai was pretty extraordinary too!

The restaurant is absolutely the best we've seen so far on the island. Great staff, delicious food (the snapper in red curry is fantastic!), reasonable pricing, nice atmosphere. If anything, they could improve the music playlist (a bit too trancy compared to overall style :) But all in all, if you wanna go out and wear a nice shirt, then... More

Having read all of the positive reviews before coming here I can honestly say that they're fully justified... Chris (?) the owner goes out of his way to make sure that you're happy, he's a genuinely nice guy, and even babysat our 7 month old baby so we could eat with our friends in peace. The food was delicious... I've... 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.
