Great Thai food

Reasonably priced Thai. Not sure why they had to add Japanese (and even one Mexican dish!) to their menu, because the Thai food is good on its own. Tasty. Nice atmosphere inside (although outside it's a strip mall)

This is my second visit and it will be my last. The food was just ok, the service was just ok, and the price was too expensive for food and service that was just ok.

Very good all around. Service was prompt and courteous; food was very good though I had to add some spice to my pad thai for my liking. They can make food very hot so you just have to ask for what you'd really like. One of our colleagues could'nt take any heat from spice, so she had to ask for... More

Went several time in August. Always had the sushi for an appetizer and it was great everytime. Had the Pineapple Fried Rice and it was enough for 3 people and very delicious. Next time had the Pad Thai and it too was very good. Service has always been wonderful, they are quick to refill drinks and check to make sure... More

Fair price for gear food. Came with business partner. Each had appetizer that we shared and enjoyed. As for the main meals, wow! Asked for Thai hot. Be prepared so good and spicy. You won't be disappointed.

We've enjoyed Galae Thai now twice for dinner and have been very happy with our food choices. The Drunken Noodles were ample and flavorful, although more spicy than I am accustomed to, and the Panang curry was delicious. The stand out was the summer rolls- think they called them Garden rolls- filled with fresh, crunchy, veggie goodness. Our second meal... More

During our stay nearby, Galae Thai was by far the best restaurant of the several (and we ate at most of them) in the complex and across the street. Good, healthy flavorful Thai choices, good service in a very pleasant atmosphere. The dishes were well presented in reasonable portions, vegetables not overcooked, bright and crisp. Sauces accentuated the dishes vests... More

I've eaten here at least 10 times. It's by far the best place I've been in the Alexandria/Arlington area. High quality, healthy (most things on the menue) and reasonable pricing.
