I was told many great things about Galangal, and after much anticipation we finally made the trip there. It was a sub par restaurant with fancy plates. The servers were nothing to praise, and it just seemed average. Maybe it was just a bad night, but I don't see myself going back again. High prices for small portions.

The meal was a true dining experience, service was excellent, the attention to the presentation from the kitchen was outstanding and the comfort of the room is always a pleasure! I made some changes to a nightly special dish the last two times that I was there and each time they were done without question and perfectly handled!

I had been looking forward to eating here for awhile. It's the only place that makes pad Thai on St Croix, my favorite dish. What I ended up getting was a place full of mashed up noodles, terribly overcooked and mushy. I ordered pad Thai with chicken, 5 spice and was sorely disappointed in the food that was served. It's...

Dear Heather: Thank you for choosing Galangal for your birthday celebration. Needless to say we are terribly sorry to mess-up your birthday with a less than adequate PadThai. However we would have preferred it if you had informed us about the bad PadThai because we could have fixed in 5 Minutes. But we also understand your decision not to interrupt... More

We have been fortunate enough to visit St. Croix each year for the past four years. Each time we come to the island we have dined at Galangal and always loved it (clearly, since we keep returning!). This time we made a meal out of small plates (salads and appetizers) both from the menu and the specials that night. Incredible.... More

Galangal is hands down, the BEST restaurant in the US Virgin Islands. I make it a point to have dinner there whenever I am on St. Croix. The ambiance is very pleasant. The staff is courteous, knowledgeable and professional. The fare is priced appropriately. The food preparation and presentation are consistently superb. Dinner last night was a 10!! I had... More

While wandering around town we stumbled across this place accidentally. I read the posted menu and said to myself, "Self, we've got to come back here." As we were perusing the posted menu a tall handsome fellow with a dog in tow came to the door and explained that they were closed but that we should come back later. He,... More

We walked in a little before 9, and they were so kind and accommodating towards us. We are avid travelers ( business & personal ) and found the service to be the best on the island. It's a MUST if you are looking for fine dining on the island.
