“The Best on the Island!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

we have eaten at Galangal a number of times and it is always excellent! The service is first rate; the food is creative, delicious and beautifully presented. The decor is sophisticated and tastefully done with articfacts from China and Thailand. It also has a small, but charming bar ans sitting area. We just returned from St. Croix and dined there once again and it was fantastic. We have been to nearly all the restaurants on St. Croix and this is definitely the best. It can be a little pricey, but you get what you pay for. It is one of my favorite reataurants anywhere, not just on St. Croix. You will need reservations. They also feature a $39 fixed price 3 course menu between the narrow window of 5:30 and 6PM

“You have to eat here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Galangal is an experience for the eyes as well as the stomach. The decorating is exquisite and relaxing. The food combines colors, textures and tastes in a most interesting fashion. The unique pairing of flavors constantly surprises, in main courses and desserts. The service is attentive and thorough, from when you come in to when you leave. We felt cared for, and you will as well.

“caribbean magic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

We asked locals for the best restaurant on the island and were directed to Galangal. It is a superb restaurant from decor to service and the creative cuisine. You are immediately
welcomed at the door by the elegant matre'd/owner and seated in a quiet, comfortable room
that has clearly been designed with love and style.
Service is impeccable at table. If you can get the bartender (Gregory) talking you will experience
the islands in a whole new way! their signature dishes are not to be missed, cocktails can be
customized to your likes and the chocolate desert is beyond description.

This is truly a restaurant not to be missed.We ate here twice in three days! and plan to return
as soon as the winds permit.

“Try this!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

We went to Galangal this evening and it surpassed our expectations. We had a lovely dinner and even got escorted back to our car which was parked a couple of blocks away. Excellent service inside and out. Try the soup appetizer. It was very very good and had such complex flavour.

“Little bit of gourmet on St. Croix”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

This was our second trip in two years to Galangal, and once again, it did not disappoint.

Charming location in the heart of Christiansted, and a warm welcome and ambiance awaits within. Both hubbie and I started out with made-from-scratch margaritas and tuna tartare (yummmmy), and then moved on to a surprisingly good (and recommended by our server) German Pinot Noir (who knew) and our entrees. So good.

To top it off, we met a very nice couple at the next table visiting from Denmark, and didn't have a huge bill to pay. Reasonable, tasty, and charming. Nothing here not to like.
