Very good Thai food

Nice to find a good restaurant serving food not necessarily deep fried which is kind of a problem when you visit the US. The food was very well prepared with a very nice bottle of wine. Very good value for money. Can recommend the restaurant for anyone with a weakness for Thai food. Also, the... read more

The atmosphere, decor, service and food were all exquisite. I had to remember that this was the Caribbean and not a stateside restaurant. Simply wonderful dining experience.

WOW. I have eaten food from around the world, and dined around the world in search of a great meal. You certainly have to travel to St Croix to enjoy the best Thai Cuisine you will ever have to cross your palate.

We travel to St. Croix for 2 weeks during the holidays every year and always look forward to the restaurants. There are so many great places to eat, the fact that we ate at Galangal twice is a testment to the wonderful food, decor, and service. While everything we ate during our visits was very good, the Papaya Salad and... More

The mussels are the most flavorful, fresh, awesome I've ever had. Try them with bread (to soak up the lemongrass broth), with a glass of your favorite white wine, and you are in HEAVEN!

The most professional service of our St Croix experience, along with the peaceful furnishings and delicious food of Galangal combined to give us a memorable, successful evening. Spring rolls with shrimp were delightfully crafted using fresh textures, vibrant flavors and a thoughtful presentation. We ordered extra peanut sauce and tossed aside our manners, eating it by the spoonful. Pad thai... More

Galangal's decor, ambiance and background music are elegant and soothing. The owner and his staff could not be more accommodating. On St Croix, only Bacchus and Kendricks equal the quality of their cuisine.

My family and I went here for dinner during our recent trip to St. Croix. It was great! We tried the green curry, pad thai, and I ordered their special which was fish and curry on the side (delicious). My mom ordered the papaya salad - I wouldn't recommend it, it looks like a bowl of coleslaw minus the mayo,... More

I really wanted to like Galangal, but it was not possible. The food was only vaguely related to the Asian, especially Thai food, you would find at typical US mainland restaurants, and certainly not close to real Asian. The green papaya salad was pretty good, but the charcoal beef salad was strangely and overly spiced. The pad thai was way... More
