“wonderful atmosphere-wonderful food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

we visited twice during our stay-this restaurant exceeds our expectations-my brother-in-law has severe peanut allergies and our waitress (from Chicago) assured us of the care the kitchen takes in preparation and the menu made it very easy to avoid peanuts and peanut oil. From the amuse bouche to the flour less cake everything was superb!

“A St Croix must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Great Asian food, wonderful decor, and a good location near the fort in Christiansted. For me the seafood is always a good choice as it's fresh from local waters.

“As we expected...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

St Croix has more quality restaurants than we would expect. Galangal is among the best we have enjoyed. Sophisticated ambiance; professional, engaging service; marvelous asian style food, magical desserts: all shared in an elegantly comfortable setting. Delightful and satisfying evening. Make reservations and enjoy!

I went twice during my stay. Highly recommend it! Great food and staff! Order a Hoegaarden beer that pairs perfectly with the thai dishes!

“One of, if not THE Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

I've held off on doing reviews of restaurants here on St. Croix because I've lived here for over 27 years and don't want to leave anyone out. For a small island there are a LOT of wonderful restaurants but Galangal truly stands out as one of the BEST. The service is always spot on, you are greeted with an amuse bouche (I had to look up the spelling in Wikipedia), the wine list is excellent and the food amazing. I love the pork tenderloin (so tender it cuts with a fork), and any of the curries. I usually get a side of chopped Thai peppers to kick it up a notch. And ending with one of their gelatos (ginger is my favorite) is just heavenly.
