First time there but definitely not the last.

We were going to the Pantages Theater in Tacoma and found Galanga for dinner. The staff is friendly, the service very quick, the food was great (we both had the Mussaman curry) and the price can't be beat. If you are going to theater square check out Galanga for dinner.

We were staying at the hotel Murano and needed a place within walking distance. Loving Thai food, we decided to try this pace. Wow, we were not disappointed. On weekends they are only open for dinner and we thought, we should call ahead for a reservation,,,, good thing, we sat down to a half empty place at 6:00 pm, and... More

When my friends and I get the chance, we always love coming to Galanga. It gets extremely busy during lunch hours, so I would recommend getting there a bit on the earlier side or a bit on the later ends of lunchtime. My friends and I love ordering the Pad See Iew and Panaeng Curry. These two dishes are amazingly... More

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 to exclude our entrees--all delicious to the very last bite.... 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.
