“The most exquisite looking restaurant we have ever dined in.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

Galangal is an absolutely beautiful restaurant. The decor shows an incredible attention to detail - intricately carved wooden doors, acoustic tile on the ceiling, subdued lighting, beautiful Italian porcelain tile.
The service was professional, attentive, and friendly. The food was Thai with a bit of an island twist. Good, not great. A little spicier than we would have liked. Extensive wine list, but a bit pricey - as was the menu. Not unexpected at the finer restaurants on the island.
Galangal is a very good restaurant. The owner is omnipresent and is trying his best to make sure that everyone is enjoying their visit. I was a little taken aback when he handed us a little card at the end of our meal that is a solicitation for a Tripadvisor review. That might explain the fairly high number of posts for this restaurant.

“Perfect dining experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

Had a fabulous dinner here recently. Everything at Galangal is top scale. Not like the Thai restaurants you see on the mainland. Food is fabulous, service outstanding and atmosphere is exceptional.

“Fabulous Dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

My family and I visited Galangal for the first time in May and could not believe how exceptional this restaurant is. We were all eager to return two weeks later and again, our meal was fabulous!
It is obvious that much emphasis is placed on consistency as well as their attention to detail.
The decor and ambience are lovely. The beautifully carved teak doors certainly make you feel as though you are stepping off the island for the evening as well as does the impeccable service. I've spent time in Bali and have ordered Tom Kha Gai at every Thai restaurant I've visited since and I've finally found at Galangal one that compares. This is hands down our new favorite restaurant on St. Croix! Kudos to the owners!

“Don't walk by without trying!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

Galangal is one of those places - from the outside you could walk by and miss - but don't! Beautifully and warmly appointed with treasures from Asia - and food prepared with the finest attention to detail - you will enjoy a great visit if you go. We've eaten at galangal many times, have introduced friends and have never once had a less than exceptional experience.

The food is definitely Asian fusion (I would call it) and/but easy for someone who may not be familiar with curries and Thai dishes to find great food to their liking.

Do go -- galangal is at the top of the list for great dining in St Croix, USVI!

“Superior food, service and decor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

We go to St. Croix every year and always dine at Galangal because it is the best restaurant on the island. The food is exquisite, the service is excellent and the décor and furnishings are superb. When you enter the restaurant it feels like you have left St. Croix and arrived at a fine dining room in Thailand. You will enjoy their Asian style of creative menu items. I had the short ribs which can not be prepared any better than these..
