One took the bar and other was the restaurant host. 3. Really appreciate that they travel to Thailand every year to especially get the spices. 4. The... More

Dear Sally: Thank you for visiting Galangal and taking time to write an honest review on TA. You are right many Thai dishes we serve are not 100% authentic. The main reason for that is that it would be too spicy for the average American taste. But most important is, that we want to serve a balanced meal i.e. adding... More

We are sorry that your food was not served on a timely basis. However, you may recall that your reservation was originally for 4 persons at 09:00 P.M. When your party arrived at 8:00 P.M. it was changed to 6 people. We try to accommodate our guests wishes as much as possible - which in this case did not work... More

No visit to St Croix is complete without at least one visit to Galangal. Gregory and Arthur truly make you feel like you're a guest in their home - I've never experienced that in any other restaurant. I had the seafood trio and it was absolutely delicious, but then again so is everything I've ever had there. I dream about... More

Finding a restaurant, as a tourist on STX, about which to write home is no small task. After one less-than-desirable meal at a resort nearby, I scouted out Galangal. I may have been dressed to romp about the island but I fit right in, even with some of the most affluent locals(the likes of whom go bareback elephant riding in... More

An absolutely fabulous restaurant. Food, drinks and service is top quality. The Duck Pate was out of this world. Excellent wine selection with pairings to prix fix dinner. Wonderful owners who also are available to assist. Beautiful atmosphere and exceptionally clean. Service was impleccible. A must dining experience for special occasion or just a memorable dining evening.

Food is excellent. Service is typically top notch (but may come with a dash of snobiness... Which is actually sort of refreshing on laid back at Croix ). Ambiance and decor are on par with top restaurants in New York, Chicago, and other foodie Meccas. Short ribs are highly recommended. Overall a great experience.
