“Should not be the first rated rest in st croix”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Ambience: 5 stars. A really good looking restaurant
Service: 2 stars. They took over two hours to serve our dishes
Food: ok but nothing to impress and not thai at all. I traveled to thailand and is not even close their food.
Cocktails: 2 stars. They do not know how to prepare any cocktail drink.

Thanks for you comment on TripAdvisor although not very flattering it will help us to improve service where needed.
We understand that your last visit to Galangal was not to your satisfaction, and must agree with your comment about that nights service. It was one of these days dreaded by all restaurateurs - but they happen. Chef had health issues, 70% of customers did not have reservation - so everything was backed up resulting in unhappy customers. Please accept our apologies for that. We would like to treat you to a free dinner at our restaurant when you visit St. Croix next time to make up for it.

“Thai?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

I found it a bit odd that a Thai restaurant was one of the top rated restaurants in St. Croix... But it lived up to the reviews. I had the Pad Thai and it was excellent.. The shrimp rolls were also excellent. There is also a very extensive wine list.

“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!
