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

Great authentic thai food. Decor is a little bland and the music playing is a little off putting as I was there with a buddy and romantic music was playing......(not cool). The food is awesome, authentic and well priced. Give it a try.

I am a business traveller who worked in Tacoma for a year. My office building was right across the street for Galangas. I waited several months before trying the restaurant. What took me so long?! The food was fantastic. I expect ally love the Pad Thai. You can get it as hot or mild as you like. It was so... More

While driving from Portland to catch a plane at SEA-TAC we needed to fill our bellies. We drove around looking for something still open and luckily found Galangal. The owner invited us in, even though they were 15 minutes from closing, and the waitress was very attentive. In the two weeks of traveling around the northwest, this was the best... More

Pad Thai was very good. Beef noodle soup, curry and crab wontons are good also. Big portions, reasonable prices.

Hands down. Galanga was the best part of my recent visit. I was sick, losing my voice, and needing to lead a 2-day training. I opted for the 4 star spicy Ginger Wok with shrimp. Yum...l wish I could say that it cured me (not so much). But, despite the virus it tasted DELICIOUS. Not to mention the friendly, helpful... More

We decided to return to Galanga because it was close to the Tacoma First Night events. We love Thai food, and expected the best. Although it was more expensive, it did not hold a candle to our favorite Tacoma thai restaurant, the Oriental Noodle, across from Tacoma community college on Mildred.

This dinner was very enjoyable. This is a small establishment in Downtown that is a must for Thai food lovers. The staff was very friendly and were a strong part of the overall experience. I had the Penang Curry with chicken that was excellent, full of spice and flavor. I finished off my meal with a bowl of coconut ice... More

Don't let the subtle store front fool you, inside you will find a friendly atmosphere a good food. I enjoyed Swimming Rama with brown rice it was served promptly and hot. The fresh spinach could have cooked a bit longer and the dish cloths have come with a bit lot tree e peanut sauce. I will return to try the... More

Absolutely the best Thai we have ever eaten! Do yourself a favor....eat at Galanga's" the family run atmosphere is especially nice to be treated. The drunken noodles are awesome and the Thai iced tea is a meal by its self :-)
