“Best place In Christiansted”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Our favorite place in Christiansted. The atmosphere, menu, and staff are all unique, pleasant, and intriguing. The multiple variations/offerings of appetizing food are great. Nothing will disappoint.
Diner One - Thai grilled beef salad, Duck Prig King Red Curry(tender duck and curry can’t be beat), Quatro (ginger, mango, green tea, and melon sorbets), two Kirin beers
Diner Two - Smoked squid salad(the best flavor combination we have tasted), Thai Holy Basil and Beef (not complicated, but sooo flavorful), Mango sorbet, two glasses of Melbec (Argentinean red wine)
$141.00 USD without tip left $171 USD

“Truly superior Thai food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

The Pad Thai was the best I've ever had anywhere. The restaurant's decor is lovely and the service was excellent.

“First rate food and first rate service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

What a find. I think this restaurant was open on my last visit to St. Croix (2009) but somehow I missed it. Finding it in 2013 was a treat. First rate Thai cuisine, beautifully prepared and presented. The flavors were subtle, but present...not in-your-face. Our server, Kate, was able to answer all of our questions about how the various dishes were prepared and never failed to check in with us at the most appropriate moments during the meal. I noticed that she even made a point to hold the door for dinner guests as they exited, and she didn't fail us in that regard. I look forward to my next meal there. Also, back in around 2007 or so I recall a Pizza Hut or Dominos in the same location. Galangal proves that there's hope for Pizza Huts everywhere!

My first time at this restaurant was amazing! I was even surprise by waitress with dessert for my anniversary. The ambience is so welcoming and I must say I will be coming again and again.

“Perfection!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Galangal hits all the marks. Elegance, ambience, excellence. From the moment you walk through the door you notice the attention to detail that is Galangal’s standard. Every element has been carefully designed right down to the table settings. The décor is exquisite, adding to the ambience. The staff is very knowledgeable and attentive and the owners are always on hand. The food is consistently excellent and pleasing to the eye as well as the palate. The curries are spiced with a well-balanced blend of flavors. The delicious food is complimented by a great wine list. Save room for dessert! The Belgian flourless chocolate cake is not to be missed. Served warm, it is soft and decadent but not overly sweet. Pair it with one of their hand crafted sorbets. The green tea and ginger are always delicious but do try whatever the seasonal special is. Last night was Carambola Basil…fabulous! Hands down one of THE best restaurants on island and an experience you will long remember.
