If you like Thai its worth a shot

Arived there at an early hour so the service was excellent. The food was very good but I must say I have had better. I had the Chicken and Cashew and it was good. Partner had a shrimp dinner and some sushi and found dthe sushi to be very good. No complaints, its a bit pricey but its Alexandria, Va.

food was predictable and decent. I had a salad with a way too hot dressing on it. Other dishes at our table were fine. Pleasant atmosphere. Good for before/after a movie but I wouldn't come to this area just to eat here.

We stumbled upon Galae Thai on our way out of the movie theater that is across the street. I didn't know much about it, but decided to give it a try. It's always a pleasant surprise when you come across a restaurant and have a pleasant experience along with delicious food. The sushi fresh and wonderful, but you can't go... More

The fruit and tuna appetizer was wonderful as was the sashimi appetizer. We ordered several of the specialty rolls and we were delighted with the results. Our server was attentive and pleasant.

Soup was good. We didn't try the Thai. Just had sushi. For what you pay you don't get much. Only one small scallop in the spicy scallop roll. And small thin piece of eel in another roll. I left hungry.

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.

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)

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
