Ate at Galangal 7/17/14 - Our dinner was top notch. We were there a few years ago and Galangal did not disappoint the second time. SaTay - appetizer - excellent spices but not overpowering. Thai Holy Basil and Beef - main course - excellent The only thing I didn't care for was the mango gelato, I thought it should be... More

Great dinner choices all around the table. Small dining room makes for a nice atmosphere with its decorations. Excellent staff! We will be back.

I recently had a wonderful dinner at Galangal! I went with a friend for my birthday. He had one of the curries with chicken and I had the pad thai with shrimp since I haven't had pad thai in a long, long time. I'm pretty sure you can't go wrong with any of the curries here! Just the right amount... More

The service, the food, the atmosphere - everything was top notch. I enjoyed the papaya salad and the Asian spiced roasted duck, my friend had the tom ka gai and massaman curry. Everything was delicious. We were treated like special guests by the host, though it was our first visit. I am no expert on thai food, but this meal... More

Atmosphere, service, quality of cuisine, we totally enjoyed the evening. The restaurant is a total and lovely surprise in a hard to find location. I am so glad we found it and will definitely go back. It's a great spot for dinner with a small group of friends, or with that special someone!

My wife and I had to wait 6 months to eat here because of my work schedule and the restaurants closed days. I would have called in sick if I had known what I was missing. This restaurant is by far the best on St Croix. We live here and have eaten at the expensive restaurants but the food here... More

Arthur and Gregory put a tremendous amount of thought into their operation. The menu always satisfies and my favorite part of the meal, the amuse bouche is my first indication that I am in for a treat. My all time favorite is the rack of lamb but my husband favors their simple and delicate way of cooking fish that really... More

This restaurant was at top of our list to visit and though it is beautifully designed there was just something off the minute we were seated. Table was right next to bar, waitress had just a tiny bit of attitude, owner ignored us until we were presented with the bill, obnoxious group of 30- somethings who were texting while waiting...

Loved the upscale Thai decor of this restaurant. I had the beef red thai curry with rice and it was really good. The rice portions could be a little bigger. The ambience could be set a bit better by playing authentic Thai music. Overall a great evening out.
