The Thai food is authentic and wonderfully prepared. Of course, you can order the dishes according to your preference for spice. There is a limited wine and beer list. This restaurant is a store front, so the atmosphere is cafe-like. Price is average. Great for kids.

We arrived with several other groups attending the same convention, but the staff handled a full restaurant with ease. I loved trying some uncommon Thai items that I've tasted at a friend's home, but which aren't commonly found on Thai menus. The food was great and the service very efficient and friendly.

A large group visited recently. We sat at a sunken table - a little hard to get in and out of...service was excellent and the food was very good. Reasonably priced for the type of restaurant.

Seriously. As I understand it, the restaurant is owned by a couple, the woman is Thai. The restaurant is pretty small and is very busy for lunch during the week. Dine in or order take out, the food is perfect every time. I think this has a lot to do with the owners taking such an active role in the... More

We had dinner at Galanga on the way from Portland to Seattle. After having fantastic Thai food at Portland food carts, we were craving for more Thai food and so we came here. Service was good and the place was clean. However, food is at best average. We had some fried flat noodles which suffer from a common problem with... More

Food was brought to the table HOT as it was prepared, so it did not all arrive at once. (We ordered 5 different things.) It was not a concern for us, we were hungry with very hungry children, so they were happy that the food came quickly. The flavors are very distinct for each dish. Service was friendly and very...

Very friendly. Large amounts of food for the price. Had phad thai, spring rolls, and jasmine tea. The spring rolls were generic and a little cold in the middle, but everything else was great! I was very happy with the service and with the way the food turned out.

I was very lucky to stumble across this restaurant. So close to the building I was working in and great prices overall. The spring rolls were fantastic as was the #14. Can't recall the name but it made my taste buds sing. The Thai iced tea is delicious. Service is sufficient. I have been for both lunch and dinner and... More

Our area is fortunate to have many Asian restaurants including Thai and Vietnamese but Galanga Thai is the absolute best, and I have tried them all! It is run by a Thai woman and her American husband. The food is fresh and perfectly spiced and the presentation is always beautiful. The Swimming Rama is made with fresh spinach instead of... More

A friend on my van pool recommended this place. My boyfriend and I went for dinner. The Thai coffee was good, but the food was so-so. I've had better. It could have been the dishes we chose. But each dish ha the same flavor and was drenched in sauce. We might go back to check out there lunch, but probably... More
