Description: As one approaches the 1729 House, the tan one across from Fort Christiansvaern Park, the Galangal sign, made from wine corks by a patron, is hardly visible from the street. Opening the aubergine door is almost magical as one steps inside an elegant white-table dinning room filled with original paintings, and Indo-Colonial architectural elements. Sitting down at the cool, dry granite bar, one just knows their Martini is going to be ice cold and the red wine will be at 65 degrees. Galangal specializes in authentic modern Thai and French cuisine, combining traditional ingredients with international flavors and techniques. Freshness is the key to Galangal's bold flavors and consistent quality. Spices from Vietnam and Singapore, curry pastes from Bangkok and unusual Asian vegetables grown in Galngal's own gardens, give Galangal's dishes their unique and authentic flavors. Even the soup is made a la minute. Little know fact, Galangal, probably has the best NY strip and pommes frites on island. Dinner 5:30 - 9:30. Closed Sunday and Monday

“Don't walk by without trying!”
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”
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..

“Special occasion”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

So many wonderful restaurants on our little island! Galangal stands out for unique, prepared as ordered Asian food. Went with a friend for a birthday dinner and did their prix fix menu. Many choices make it easy to enjoy this option. Knowledgeable waiter explained all in detail and clarified what could be subbed (at addtl cost) from regular menu. Fresh flavors and lovely presentation make this a one of a kind here. Def a special occasion place for locals as it is on the higher end of our market. try papaya salad, anything with Tuna, ribs, ice cream

“Outstanding food, presentation, and ambience”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

The food here is superb and the owner cares - in every way. We enjoyed our anniversary there with a special dinner, best table in the house, and a surprise dessert from the host as well. How delightful! The food is always perfect, fresh, and cooked to order.

Note this is not a "local fare" restaurant - and is for foodies and those looking for a higher class establishment, not so much a beachfront, bar and grille.

A great place for a special night - a reunion of friends - or just a night for a family to go enjoy a good dinner with healthy, fresh, and Thai-spiced food.
