Lipstick on a pig still gives you a pig

Sure, it's pretty inside, but the food is horrible, bland and unimaginative. We tried Galangal a couple of times and were largely unimpressed. The staff seems hurried and untrained while the owners stand around and bark orders. Evidently you need to be a well known local to get good service. I... read more

Our restaurant opens Tuesday through Saturday at 5:30 P.M. and was never opened late. Subsequently the reviewer did not have to wait until 6:05 P.M. More

We live on St. Croix and have eaten at Galangal on a number of occasions. They have never failed to please us. The decor, which is beautifully done, makes you feel as if you are not on a Caribbean island. (This is a treat for those of us who do live on the island) You feel as if you could... More

We have owned a home in St. Croix for 22 years and go there 3-4 times a year. Friends have been urging us to go to Galangal, an East Asian restaurant in downtown Christiansted, --formerly a Pizza Hut! We always said "isn't that where Pizza Hut used to be?" and declined. Boy are we sorry we missed out the past... More

Fantastic ambiance and a charming Asian feel greet you for the start of a great evening at Galangal. This is a super choice for that special evening out or just for a gathering with friends. The management and staff are tops, among the best I've encountered on the island. They really do want you to enjoy your visit and it... More

Reviews are right on. From one foodie to another don't miss this one. Walking in we all felt transformed to another place(NYC). The decor was exotic and chic with asian inspired art and architectural details. Nice soft music muted the conversation in the air. The server was very eager to share her knowledge about the menu and even the recipes.... More

What a fantastic time at a fantastic place! My friends and I were in St. Croix in July and they took me to Galangal for my birthday. We had great drinks, amazing food and really good service. I can't say enough good things about it!

My son and daughter-in-law always hear me say Galangal is my favorite restaurant on St. Croix. As a birthday surprise I was recently treated to dinner. From the moment we walked in the door, our lovely dining experinence began. The magnificent ambience, soft music and warm greeting from owner Arthur, elevated our mood and relaxed us at the same time.... More

I dont even to know where to begin to describe the truly memorable experience that Galangal has to offer. My wife and I frequent St. Croix often and have dined there twice.
