“Fabulous and elegant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

The dining room is beautifully decorated. I like spicy, and the green curry was amazing. Our waiter Mark was attentive and knowledgeable. My only criticism was that I found the cardboard coasters a little tacky, but I'd be surprised if that isn't changed soon.

“Don't miss this one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

Dining at Galangal is a memorable experience that will enhance your visit to Christiansted, St Croix. The ambiance, food, and attentive staff would put this restaurant on the map in any major US city. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinners and desserts. Should you have the opportunity to select an entree with Galangal butter sauce you are in for a special treat. My only regret is that the restaurant isn't closer to home in the US so I could become a "regular." Kudos and thanks for a fabulous evening of dining. This restaurant well deserves the highest tripadvisor rating.

“Brilliant! Impeccable quality and service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

We are back on St. Croix for the holidays and enjoyed a wonderful evening at Galangal. This restaurant is a must. The impeccable service, great selection of wines and highest quality food have not changed since Galangal first opened. We spend at least two evenings at Galangal on each visit and have already made reservations for our second evening. Cannot wait -;). Thanks to Arthur and his staff for making our evenings with them a tradition to treasure!

“Asian oasis in St Croix”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Made my second visit to Galangal in Christiansted last night. The decor is simply splendid. You walk in from the old Caribbean colonial street into an Asian palace. The service is friendly, efficient and excellent with the owners in obvious attendance.

I 've eaten Thai food all over the US and in Asia. I cook Thai....the (mostly) Thai dishes at Galangal are simply sublime. The best Tom Ka Gai I've ever had...assertive flavors and made to order for each diner. The duck prig khing red curry had heat but each flavor came through. It was also laden with local vegetables.

In a place dominated by burgers, jerk BBQ, etc we are so lucky to have Galangal here on St Croix.

This restaurant was outstanding! A must if you are in the area. Outstanding! The Tuna appetizer was so fresh. Also ordered the Thai meat with veggies and the green currie. All delicious . Sorbet was ok.
