Welcome to The Gallery Restaurant, Wine Bar and fine art Photo Gallery
Explore a marvellous array of flavours and experience excellent service in our cosy and chic, gourmet, authentic Thai restaurant. Every detail is given great attention at The Gallery in order to provide you with the ultimate dining experience. We believe that people travel to Thailand to experience Thai culture and genuine Thai cuisine, while enjoying the friendfly and welkcoming people and the spectacular scenary and weather that the country has to offer.
When creating the concept of The Gallery, Chris and Chayaphon Clark travelled the country far and wide leaving the bounds of their island home behind. It is with this is mind as they explore the wonders of Thailand that they lay out their desire to create a restaurant that stands high in quality, way above anything Koh Tao has experienced before; but more than that, above and beyond all other Thai restaurants in Thailand.
Chris moved to Koh Tao in 1996 after completing a degree in Marine Biology while working in some of the top restaurants and bars in Cape Town to fund his student years. Chayaphon, nicknamed "Pbu" arrived on Koh Tao in 2001 from her paternal town of Chumphon where Grandma imprinted her sensational taste and love of great Thai cuisine upon Pbu. Pbu's mother, from Bangkok, an incredible cook, also gave her a culinary upbringing that has born one of the best and most modest Thai chefs in the Kingdom. Her love of great food, attention to detail and passion for creativity and culinary knowledge fuel the absolute essence that is The Gallery. All the way through Chris' life, since youth, he has worked on developing a photographers eye, above and below the waves. His fine art photos of marine life and Koh tao landscapes provide a backdrop for Pbu's mouth watery delights.
Chris and Pbu became a team around 2003 and married in 2012, the same year that they opened The Gallery. It is a family business, with that warmth at the core of its success, and creativity, art and culture breathe a fresh perspective into this authentic Thai dining experience. One thing is for sure, you will not find anything like it on Koh Tao.
