The only Asian restaurant we found on St. Croix. Beautiful decor, great food, service struggled a bit but was friendly. Overall a really nice experience. We would come back for sure.

We had a great dinner last night at Galangal. There were 5 of us and we shared for appetizers the house-made pate, the cold smoked squid salad with wakame, and fried calamari. All delicious. The entrees consisted of Massaman curry, pan-seared fresh salmon, and trio of three fishes. The flourless chocolate cake could not have been better. Galangal also has... More

I love the food here. The curry is to die for and I can never re create it. I don't know how they get it so perfect, cant wait to go again!

Dear Amanda: Thank you for visiting Galangal and posting your review on TA. We can't take all the credit for our curries because we import them from Nitia in Bangkok a shop where most Thai people buy their curry. If you go on the internet you may find that brand offered by an American importer, however it is a bit... More

Vacationing from NY, we went to Galangal based on reviews and the raves are well deserved! Calling Galangal a Thai restaurant doesn't do it justice. The restaurant calls it food "French Asian Fusion" - and that it is. Both regular menu items (Thom ka gai soup was wildly flavorful and Asian Short Ribs were seriously melt-in-your-mouth tender) and specials (especially... More

We're from NYC, but we had to go all the way to St. Croix for Thai food this good. It's a sophisticated twist on the usual Thai dishes. The best restaurant we've been to on the island. It doesn't have a great view of the Caribbean like some other restaurants do, but it has an attractive, sophisticated atmosphere.

I'm not even going to go into details here - there are too many to list. Just go, as often as you can. Make sure to make a reservation; the best tables are the two in the front by the windows (for couples.) Starve yourself all day so you can try as many things as possible. Leave room for the... More

I made a reservation for 5 people and we had to get there before 6pm because they were filling up with reservations; however, the person I spoke with was very accommodating and because we got there at 5:45pm, we were able to get the prix fixe special (runs from 5:30pm-6:00pm) which is one appetizer, one entree, and one dessert for...
