“The Very Best Place in St. Croix!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

This place takes you away to another world. The ambiance is astonishing, truly beautiful, and well thought out piece of art. The owners Arthur and Gregory are a joy and bring a personal touch that is second to none. Watch out though, Gregory may keep you laughing so hard you will find it difficult to eat your meal. Of course this is a good thing. ;) I have had just about everything on the menu and not only is it the best Thai food in the Caribbean, but some of the best Thai one will enjoy anywhere! Not only do they import many of the spices, they have a chef come from Thailand to design the menu and train the back of the house staff. I cannot rave enough about this place. The only other thing you may need to know, is that they are not strictly Thai food. By this I mean they also have the very best steak on the island and a number of other unique dishes that will be attractive for those who may be wary of trying something like Thai food. Also, surprisingly a fantastic wine list even for a 5 star french style restaurant. So, if you have a chance eat here do not hesitate. It is the best place to dine in stx period.
Sincerely,
A Galangal lover!

“The Best Food on the Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Overall, you will not find a better prepared dinner or service anywhere on St. Croix than at Galangal, especially if you have a taste for Thai food. A must when you come to St. Croix.

“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
