Indulge in delicious Thai food on the beach

Thai Gallery Jeddah

Located on Oía Beach in Jeddah, this Thai restaurant is a perfect spot for a picturesque and indulgent dinner. The restaurant originally started in Marbella and became popular for its stylish interiors, buzzing atmosphere, and exquisite Thai food. What to try? You can’t go wrong with their classic pad thai and prawn satay paired with a passion fruit mojito. For something sweet try the fried banana with honey.
