This is my wife's favorite place on Island to eat. I have a great meal every time I go. I love the curries!

So many wonderful restaurants on our little island! Galangal stands out for unique, prepared as ordered Asian food. Went with a friend for a birthday dinner and did their prix fix menu. Many choices make it easy to enjoy this option. Knowledgeable waiter explained all in detail and clarified what could be subbed (at addtl cost) from regular menu. Fresh... More

The food here is superb and the owner cares - in every way. We enjoyed our anniversary there with a special dinner, best table in the house, and a surprise dessert from the host as well. How delightful! The food is always perfect, fresh, and cooked to order. Note this is not a "local fare" restaurant - and is for... More

We went when they were new and were highly disappointed. The food was boing, and the service was beyond rude. As soon as we didn't order a full bottle of wine, the server stopped caring. People who arrived after us were served with food before we even received drinks. We never went back.

We had a wonderful time here - the staff was gracious and wine pairings were very good. The restaurant is beautifully decorated, and the attention to detail is evident in the staff's careful service. Most importantly, the food is absolutely delicious, freshly prepared and spiced appropriately for Western tastes, served in human portions. We only had the Thai selections, so... More

After 9 years we sold our home on St. Croix this year, and we picked Galangal for our last dinner out. In our opinion Galangal is a world-class restaurant and our recent experience simply reinforces that view. The food and presentation were exquisite, the service was friendly and attentive, and the owner made an effort to visit every table more... More

As a routine business traveler to St. Croix, I am constantly looking for new places to eat. Ever since I found Galangal thru TA, I stopped looking for new places. Service is the best. The owner (I think his name is Arthur) always says hi to everybody and the waitress are great. Samantha is very nice and is always checking... More

Galangal is a first-rate restaurant with very nice décor, immaculately kept, and jazz-style music played at the proper volume. The food preparation is top-notch, done by people who know what they are doing. The Tom Ka Gai soup is excellent with many flavors combining to make an interesting and delicious soup - can never get enough cilantro. The grilled salmon... More

My husband, teen daughter and I were pleased to return to Galangal for our second visit in as many years. It did not disappoint. While we usually prefer to eat outdoors while on the island, the atmosphere, air conditioning and comfort at Galangal made for a nice change of pace. And our food and drinks were delicious.
