“Consistently Special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

Arthur and Gregory put a tremendous amount of thought into their operation.
The menu always satisfies and my favorite part of the meal, the amuse bouche is my first indication that I am in for a treat.
My all time favorite is the rack of lamb but my husband favors their simple and delicate way of cooking fish that really highlights the protein and he is a fussy fish eater!
Thank you sirs for making this our special go to place.
We will keep coming back and giving the highest recommendations as you always deliver world class service, the food is always great and the atmosphere is relaxing.

“Very disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

This restaurant was at top of our list to visit and though it is beautifully designed there was just something off the minute we were seated. Table was right next to bar, waitress had just a tiny bit of attitude, owner ignored us until we were presented with the bill, obnoxious group of 30- somethings who were texting while waiting for their table - nothing in particular but lots of little annoyances. The amuse bouche was best thing we all had - Thai Holy Basil and beef dish was not as expected, pad thai had good flavor , two appetizers - Sashimi tuna, and Yam Neua were good. They were out of the wine ordered and did sub an alternative at comparable price. It was expensive and mostly paying for décor/atmosphere which again was off set by other customers to a degree. Not good enough to go back.

Dear A Davis:

We are sorry that you dining experience was underwhelming for you. We are working hard to offer good, consistent quality food and service. We understand that sometimes our guests next to you can be trouble when too laud or not fitting in to let you enjoy you food in peace and quiet. Maybe when you get to St. Croix next time you'll give us a second chance and we will make it up for you.

“Great Thai food in St Croix”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

Loved the upscale Thai decor of this restaurant. I had the beef red thai curry with rice and it was really good. The rice portions could be a little bigger. The ambience could be set a bit better by playing authentic Thai music. Overall a great evening out.

Thank you for your visit at Galangal and taking time for a review on TA. We are happy that you liked our food.
In a time of dwindling resources we are trying to serve portions which avoid waste. However we offer addition rice at no charge.
We hope that you will visit us again at your next trip to St. Croix.

“Absolute must while on St Croix!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

We came from St Thomas for a weekend and wanted to try some of the best St Croix restaurants. Galangal was one of Trip Advisor's top choices and now we know why. Beautiful decor with intricate details such as carved wooden doors and panels from Indonesia is complemented by perfect music selection and lighting. Service is very good, suggestions for our appetizers were welcome and delicious - we had tuna and mussels, the last one is a must try! While choosing wine you will notice several German wines, not surprising with proprietor Arthur being German,and that dry Riesling sure went so well with our food. We had our 4 month old daughter with us and unfortunately had to ask for our entrees to be wrapped to go as she started fussing a bit and we didn't want to disturb other diners. We finished our Asian short ribs and night's special lamb rack at the hotel and I must say a separate Thank You to the chef for that potato cake with scallions and also the way they cook rice. Amazing. We also had a flourless chocolate cake with green tea gelato to round up this decadent meal. While waiting for some to go utensils at the bar I noticed how beautiful glassware was for the after dinner drinks. So if you are having a meal here,treat yourself to a little grappa or port in the end. Make a reservation as they seemed to be filling up early.
