Excellent food

We had an outstanding lunch at Galanga Thai Cuisine, including an excellent and generous dessert: fresh mango with coconut rice and sweet coconut sauce. We had a lot to talk about and the staff were patient and cheerful--it was lovely to linger over good food and important family business. Not... read more

After a great tour of the Tacoma Art Museum we walked down the block and lucked out by eating at this restaurant. The food was delicious. Seasonally fresh and so good. The staff is amazing to watch... busy, quick and really nice. I wished I lived in Tacoma so we could eat here all the time. Highly recommended to everyone.... More

I dined at Galanga Thai late on a hot afternoon in early July. The inside of the restaurant was pretty warm, but the one shaded table on the sidewalk was lovely. I enjoyed a half-order of their spring rolls, which were fresh and flavorful. As my entree I had one of their specials, a curried asparagus. This dish, too, was... More

Having to watch what you eat while out and about makes it difficult to eat healthy without breaking the calorie bank. The Thai cuisine was the answer for lunch and great food! We had three traditional entrees, mine was a great salad with glass noodles and shrimp. Tasty cuisine! Unusual food for me but soooo good! And the place was... More

Delighted to discover an affordable restaurant within a block of the hotel Murano with amazing food. Had the red curry duck (lychees added unexpected sweet twist), eggplant with sweet Thai basil and the Phad Thai. All were great. Service was friendly and attentive.

I love this place! The food is better than any other Thai in Tacoma. This is the place of choice for us and many other friends. I will say that Indochine has better ambiance and other places have less expensive dishes. Still, the quality here is above and beyond and worth a couple of extra bucks.

I stopped in on a weekday for a quick lunch and found this eatery packed and jumping as usual. Waitstaff were friendly and accommodating as always. The food was plentiful and hot. I'd tell you what I ate but I can't spell it. Let's just say it was "pad see you" and you will know what I mean. It's consistently... More

You learn your lesson rather quickly when coming to Galanga---you should have made a reservation. The staff is very pleasant and somehow will fit you in, but at least for dinner you should expect a wait. The food will be worth the wait and the choice on the menu will be somewhat different than many other Thai restaurants. We particularly... More

Some of the best Thai food in Tacoma. Lots of menu options, something for everyone. The duck curry was the star of our meal. Looking forward to visiting again to try some of the other menu options. Sincerely welcoming and friendly staff, fast and efficient. Pricing is very reasonable, the atmosphere comfortable and family friendly. The excellent service and flavorful... More
