This is the best restaurant on St. Croix. When you enter through the door, you have left St. Croix and entered into an elegant Thai restaurant.

Well I'll start with the positive - the food was delicious and authentic. If you are a fan of Thai or asian fusion - you won't be disappointed. Our server was also lovely and we appreciated her service. My only beef was the seating which is that obnoxious bench style seating where you are basically dining with your neighbors. We... More

We took our sommelier's advice on all of our outings during our trip and we were the most impressed with this establishment. When we arrived, the owner rose from his seat in the restaurant to greet us and checked on us regularly. It was a beautiful atmosphere with ornate antique doors. The food and service was incredible.

This stylish gem of a restaurant features amazing Thai food. My wife and I each ate different curried chicken, and our 10 year old son enjoyed the pad thai. The owner of the restaurant was very attentive, called a cab for us when we wanted to return to our hotel, and alerted us when it arrived.

Galangal has been on St Croix for six years, and we just had our first (but not last) meal there. There were six of us and each of us were wide-eyed with how delicous our food was. Fresh and flavorful. Professional, outstanding service. The wines were perfectly paired. The interior of the restaurant is gorgeous. Reservations a must. LOVED IT!
