Top 10 restaurants in Koh Tao, Thailand

December 15, 2017 Trinity Boughner

Drifting serenely in the Gulf of Thailand, the palm-fringed island of Ko Tao takes its name from the abundant sea turtles that reside on its shores. White sand beaches sheltered by steep hills – some only accessible with four-wheel drive vehicles – and 300 days of sun per year invite long afternoons of lounging.

Absolutely loved this little gem. We had the living bowls. The base is fruit blended with coconut topped with granola, fresh coconut, seeds, gogi berries and banana. The base fruits were dragon fruit, rasberry and strawberry. Gorgeous, great size and the perfect way to start our day.

The Gallery Restaurant

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.

Through The Looking Glass

Reviewed By Andrew T

Whilst currently working my way through the menu, I have yet to be disappointed... the Sandwich bread is freshly made each day, the pasties are stuffed and the sausage rolls have a beautifully crisp and thin shortcrust surrounding a light and fluffy sausage meat. The quiche is worth waking up for. Then I hit the dessert counter... the banana and coconut slice is delicious... however, the pinnacle of success has to be the millionaires shortbread. I've taken slices of this away to share with friends and then have literally cried with happiness. My only complaint is the opening ours, I wish this place was open on a Sunday and open after 3pm-if I'm double boating I simply cannot get here in time, but I've happily driven here most days from maehaad just for brunch.

Reviewed By crawfords37 - Coffs Harbour, Australia

The food at this restaurant is so fresh and healthy. We had the steamed noodles with vegetables and green curry paste. There was a great array of vegetables. We also had the red fried rice with pineapple. It was amazing with lots of mushrooms, tofu and cashews. One of the best meals we have had so far in Koh Tao.

Koh Tao Thai-Riffic

Cafè & Cakery located at Nay Pon Road (walking street) in Sairee. Specializes in homemade cakes, ice cream, cookies and coffee

Reviewed By 363svenk

.. Literally the best sweets you can get on koh tao.. Visiting the Island since 12 years and living here for some years now, this became our favorite place to pick up desserts and order individual cakes.. (See pic...)
From chocolate mousse, panna cotta, (American) Cheese cake to even selfmade Marzipan.. Now even fresh made Ice cream...
All reasonable priced and top Quality...
Only sad thing is that now german Marzipan does not satisfies me anymore what a disappointment when I tried it during our Germany Holidays... Not even close to the quality you get at thairiffic!
Lovely kind couple running it..
No need yo buy any branded sweets from the supermarket..
Keep up the good work!
Thanks Andre.
