Great food and cocktails! Cool vibe. Drinks take awhile, but worth the wait! Food has quite a kick so be sure to check the level. Downtown Christiansted.

Excellently prepared food. Wide selection of Asian and some French influenced dishes. Bartender is a drink magician. Atmosphere upscale but very comfortable.

This is one of my new peak dining experiences. The owner and wait staff were very attentive and very apologetic when our reserved table was not available on time. It was definitely worth the wait! Appetizers, entree, and dessert were all exceptional--I told my daughter...More

The menu sounded good but the staff is so snotty. They think they are the hottest thing in NYC. Not eating here.

Authentic thai food that rivals any restaurant in the states. The fresh seafood dishes are my favorite, especially with the curry. Pad thai is another favorite as well as the tom ka and beef salad. Superb wine list. Very elegant setting and friendly staff and...More

Visited this restaurant on a busy Saturday night. This was my third dinner here and I do enjoy the Vegetarian Green Curry dinner. The table was lovely but the service was quite slow. However once our dinner arrived we all were very pleased. Be sure...More

Dear Management, In response to you, regarding my review - There was no issue with the service at your restaurant, as you suggest, other than the fact that I would not say it was overly friendly when we came in to pick up our food. I understand that many restaurants charge an additional amount for take-out items, however, we typically still tip 15-20%, even on our take-out items. This time was no different. Since we have been to your restaurant several times before, we are familiar with your portion sizes - the amounts we received were atypical...particularly with the Thai Holy Basil with Beef. Trip Advisor did not choose to post the photo I took of this item. It was a very scant portion, to say the least - I do not like your implication that we are unaware of your portion sizes, nor do I appreciate your 'tone' in implying that this meal was typical of your entree portions received (whether in a take out item or as a sit down customer). The amount of rice for 2 entrees was also very small and atypical of our previous experiences in your establishment. As for the quality of our meal, the Pad Thai was tasteless (I asked for medium spice and it had none) and the Red Curry was also bland (with medium spice requested). The reason I wrote this review is for your establishment to be aware of the fact that the quality of our meal was subpar. This is the only way you can improve - unless you feel you are above improvement?

We have only eaten "in house" and have always had a most wonderful meal and wine. It is one of our most favorite restaurants in the world!

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 Galangal's own gardens, give Galangal's dishes their unique 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.
