Mediocre food at best though service was good. Can't really remember what we ordered prior to a show. There must be better in Tacoma.

Had a delicious dinner of fresh Spring Rolls, Tofu Pad Thai, and Eggplant with Sweet Basil before heading to Pantages for a performance. Restaurant was packed so reservations might be good insurance to get a table before events. Friendly service. We ordered spring rolls when we got our menus, and they arrived within minutes. Entrees were out within 15 minutes.... More

We had dinner here before a show - easy to find, good (meter) parking, friendly staff. I had the Chicken Phad Thai and my wife had the Tofu Swimming Rama. Both were pretty good. Server was friendly and the place got busy after we were seated - a good sign... We'd like to try them for lunch some time.

The staff are always nice even when they are busy. The food is great and they give you plenty so you have lunch leftovers!

The food was very tasty & well-presented. Simple decor - a family business. The menu has a wide selection.

From the decaying front sign, to the mid-matched furniture and oily tasteless crab Rangoon this place is little more than a cafeteria with inflated prices. Located in a lovely area of Tacoma, this restaurant squeaks by with minimal accommodations and marginal food, if you're looking for anything more than a casual dining experience avoid this place. One look at the... More

I read other reviews of this family run restaurant and they were true to the mark: freshly prepared, beautifully presented and wonderful food. We had a family gathering of 12 from all over the U.S. Even though it was a week night, we made reservations in advance. The service was very attentive. We had a variety of appetizers and found...

My son, husband and I stopped by this delightful Thai restaurant the other night and would definitely be regulars if we lived closer! We ordered the following: Panang curry with chicken, asparagus and shiitake with chicken (on the specials menu), and salad rolls. Our food came quickly, was fresh and hot (or cold), and delicious. Nothing was greasy or fried... More

One of the best places in Tacoma for great, authentic Thai cuisine! My wife and I go frequently, as do our grown children. A " must" dining experience!

We were going to the Pantages Theater in Tacoma and found Galanga for dinner. The staff is friendly, the service very quick, the food was great (we both had the Mussaman curry) and the price can't be beat. If you are going to theater square check out Galanga for dinner. Get reservations though, after we walked in it filled up... More
