THE GALLERY – ANOTHER GREAT RESTAURANT IN CHIANG MA
A trip to Thailand is not close to complete without trying the food that they have to offer. And of all Thai dining places, Chiang Mai Thailand has one of the best selection of restaurants that are ranked highly. So much so that they even rival the restaurants in Bangkok, the largest city in Thailand. At half the price in Chiang Mai, you can always get a comfortable place to stay and dine without compromising on the quality of cuisines that you will have.
Going round in this town, or in the market area (night), you will be presented with all sorts of air conditioned or al-fresco choices and the northern people take pride in the ambiance often created by the live music that is so very discrete. The riverside area provides a particularly romantic atmosphere, but you will not have to venture far back into the town to get a taste of the rich Thai cuisine.
One of the highest ranked restaurants in the area and that is very popular and still growing in popularity by the day is The Gallery. In every country or town that you may have traveled to, there is always that one thing that stands out throughout the whole trip. Well, in Thailand, it is The Gallery.
It started out as a silk, cotton and a household items store back in the year 1892. It is therefore safe to say that it is probably the oldest building in this area. However, while it may be old, it certainly brings over a relaxed and charming experience to the riverside travelers. It is a restaurant but also has an art gallery for all the art lovers to enjoy. It is usually open as from 12:00 all the way to midnight and is located on 25-27-29 Charoenrat road.
The restaurant and the gallery have a very classic setting for their Thai dining where they serve Chinese, Thai and international cuisine. To the right of the Gallery is a jazz club: The Chang Jazz club which tends to have live music most of the nights. You are always free to sit and relax enjoying the music. In addition to the soothing cool music, they also have a huge screen available from which you can view some particular movies and even some of their past recorded performances.
In addition, the building has one of the finest massage parlors. Surely you have heard praises of the Thai massages and their benefits. Getting this massage will be to your benefit.
The rates of this place are like of no other place. For instance, if you are looking to have wine and a dinner for two, it will come close to $38. More info can be read in their website http://www.thegallery-restaurant.com/.
