From the minute you walk in you know you have made the right choice. You are greeted by one of the owners and then seated at your beautiful set table. The food is delicious and the service is impeccable. I had the crispy duck and it was excellent, someone else ordered the duck in curry, and someone else the pork... More

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 23 February 2017

I have to review this place every time we go because it is so perfect. Arthur and Gregory and Chef Kenny deserve the praise. Their 5 course Valentines dinner was exquisite in every way-- from the champagne reception with the wonderful hors d'oeuvres to the next four courses -- it was wonderful with exceptional service and interesting delicious wines served...

We enjoyed a night out with friends and we were not disappointed. We moved to STX 20 months ago and it was our first time at Galangal. Beautiful decor, classy atmosphere, and very pleasing appetizers and main dishes. Our server, Daniella was very knowledgable and had a pleasant spirit. It was a night to remember and we enjoyed every aspect... More

This is a special dinner out place with beautifully prepared and presented meals. The fish was delicious and unusual. The drinks were very good and the dessert was special. It is a bit expensive but the atmosphere is lovely.

A restaurant for special occasions. Asian, primarily Thai influenced and Continental food served in an upscale looking restaurant that you would not expect on St. Croix. Great selection of wines including many unusual good wine from Germany personally selected by the owners.

We have been here twice once in December and once this April and each visit has been amazing. Each time we were greeted by the owners and treated as if we had been best friends for years.

Had dinner here tonight with my husband and our pre-teen son. Lovely decor, wonderful service and delicious eats. We shared squid salad and green papaya salad for starters - both delicious. I had chicken Pad Thai (which can be spiced to your preference) and I wish I could've taken the remaining half home for lunch (large portion), but we leave... More

Food and service are excellent. As a local, I eat there on average once a week and it never disappoints. If I was a tourist, the only downside might be that it's inside with no island view but the décor is nice and overall experience is top notch.

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
