We called in to the tapas bar which is right on the Main Street. All the dishes are 99 baht and there around 30 to choose from. The food is cooked fresh in front of you. We had 4 dishes between 2 of us which was just enough. The drinks were more expensive but our total bill was under 1000 baht.

Our favourite dish was sirloin steak with pork crackling. Beautifully cooked steak with 2 spicy dips. The chicken skewer was lovely and tender and the small prawn dish was like a big crispy prawn toast with juicy who,e prawns on top. We weren’t over keen on the steamed fish dish, there was only a small piece of fish and the dish was bulked out with something inedible (possibly galangal).

Dear morleyterrier,

Thank you for choosing Drink Gallery X Tapas Bar for your recent dining.

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed our Thai Tapas menu selections especially Sua Rong Hai (grilled marinated beef sirloin) and pleased to learn that you appreciated a location of our restaurant which is right in the heart of Chaweng. Thank you for your appreciation of the open- kitchen concept that gives you a chance to watch the food preparation and enjoy the freshly -made food served in front of you. We have noted on your constructive comment of one of menu items you ordered “Pla Nueng Ma-now” (steamed fish with lemongrass dressing) as fish was a bit too small. We will definitely share your feedback to our culinary team for further improvement.

Thank you once again for your review and we do hope to host you again in the nearest future.

Best regards,

The Management

We came for the second time with the family for 9 days. This time we got a 2 bedroom villa in the new section. The villa is perfectly designed, very spacious with a private swimming pool and gym.
The team is amazingly attentive to customers and their needs. Jean, our host was super helpful with every small request. The General Manager is a very nice lady that knows all the guests by name and makes sure she gives them the attention.
We will definitely come again next year.
Highly recommend!

Room tip: The regular rooms are beautiful but for families, the villas are perfect.
