Wonderful

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

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

My husband and I both got pad Thai take out here. The service was very friendly. The food good although the pad Thai could have had more sauce on it.
