Surprisingly Elegant

We went to Galangal because of the Tripadvisor rating and expected the food to be good. What I did not expect was how beautiful the restaurant was. Service was right on and the food was way beyond Thai or Asian. Lots of options for any, even very picky, palate.

Outstanding dinner and service. I love restaurants where the specials, appetizers, and desserts are as fabulous as the entree. This was the case. Everything was perfect right down to the cocktails. Best Curry we've had - it was brought over from Thailand. The specials were amazing - foie gras appetizer was succulent. Outstanding service. Go and enjoy..

First the decor is beautiful and very interesting. The food was as good as any Thai food I have ever had and I have been to many Thai restaurants all over the U.S. I had the red curry which was excellent. The owner was there and he is German and one of his specialties is German Rieslings. He told us... More

This is a gem and the food was amazing. The chefs are trained in authentic Thai cuisine and visit Thailand for refresher every year or so per the server. The decor is upscale and stylish and personalized. We had were surprised by the flavorful red curry which was so different from the mainland Americanized Thai food. A must for all... More

First Thai food I've ever had. Delicious!!!! The lemongrass coconut soup. The peanut sauce with chicken skewers was just perfect.

Not only was the food absolutely delicious, but the service was superb. The owner was warm and welcoming and went above and beyond to create a wonderful experience. The restaurant is lovely, with hand carved doors on the bathroom. We will definitely be coming back as we visit St. Croix frequently.

Great place to dine that a local friend living on the island recommended!
