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

Reviewed 3 May 2010

I have happily enjoyed many evenings at Galangal. located waterfront in historic old Christiansted. First, it must be said that Galangal is the prettiest restaurant on the island. The decor is elegant and decorated with lovely art and original furnishings of South East Asia. The bar is friendly and welcoming, with full menu available. A very user-friendly wine list is available and reasonably priced for the quality. But the star attraction is the food. I have eaten many of the entrees and appetizers. The flavors are authentic, which I can say after many personal travels in SE Asia. The dishes are equal to or better than those I have enjoyed in Thailand or Bali. I especially enjoyed the tilapia steamed in banana leaf, simply exquisite. The green papaya salad is excellent, even by Asian standards. The service is friendly and informed and the music and lighting make Galangal a delightful place to spend the evening.
