Awesome authentic Thai food. Excellent service although very busy on a Tuesday night. Entrees were amazing, we had the beef carpaccio, spring rolls, soft shell crab and curry puffs. Curry puffs are a must have, we've had in Perth. Mains were perfectly cooked, we had the twice cooked pork belly, fish, duck curry, pad thai and pad prik king goong (prawns). Dishes were full of flavor. We tried three desserts, coconut ice cream, lime tart and the mango sticky rice. The mango sticky rice was our favorite. It was nice and warm and not too sweet. Would definitely recommend this place, but will definitely need to book in advance as it is very busy.
We loved Galangal’s old restaurant and we love their new restaurant even more. The staff are so kind, the atmosphere is awesome and the food is always AMAZING!!! So much flavour in all their dishes and everything is presented beautifully. We love taking our friends and family here on special occasions as they never leave disappointed.
Restaurant decor is beautiful very tasteful, service attentive, price reasonable. Food was good especially the roast duck red curry but the menu was not extensive. We ordered the fish cakes and money bags for entree both were well cooked and very tasty. We also ordered the barramundi which had nice flavours and a well cooked pad Thai noodle dish. Disappointing that alcohol is not byo on weekend. The wine we ordered which was a Pinot was out of stock so they recommended a substitute. The big let down was the acoustics in the place as the restaurant was full it was a case of having to shout to be heard as for some reason people in Australian restaurants seem to talk loud to the point of yelling. We had to leave after a certain point for somewhere quieter. The lady behind the bar/reception counter where I went to pay was extremely lovely and friendly. This only made up for the downsides of the evening so well done
We booked online and were shown to our table in what ended up a very busy and popular restaurant. Seated in a nicely decorated room by attentive staff, dishes arrived promptly. Std spring rolls and stuffed won tons served nuclear hot, and Tom Kar Gai soup full of flavour. Our other dishes all were served after asking if they could start mains which is nice if you wish to take a little longer over your meal. Dishes are a little smaller than a regular Asian restaurant, but conversely they were more flavourful with the use of proper ingredients, veg, herbs and tender meat. Recommended and will go again.
The food was flavoursome but the service was very poor. The waitstaff were not very attentive at all. We had to try so hard to get their attention each time we wanted anything. Even then they looked as if they were not very happy to have been called. The galloping horses and the soft shell crabs of the appetisers were very good. We had red duck, stir fry Thai basil chicken, Tom yum mushroom, fried rice with prawn and steam rice for mains. We got everything else except the fried rice together and we waited and waited and even after we had finished all our curry and steam rice the fried rice was still not there. Finally after also g 3 times from waitstaff it finally came and by that time we were too full after eating the rest so didn't really enjoy it. It was tasty but had only about 6 prawns in the whole dish. They could have included more. The ambience was vibrant and warm. Such a shame that such good had to be served with so much lack of enthusiasm by the staff that it had to spoil the whole experience for us.
Galangal serves the best Thai food in Perth. Service is great and during the week they have BYO, whcih is great! The only slight negative is that the acoustics are not great and when it's packed (which is always is) it can be hard to hear but this is a small price to pay for the yummy food.
We went to Galangal quite a few times when it first open, but for one reason or another haven't been lately. Took some overseas visitors on Thursday night and loved it all over again! Great food and good service. Will be back before too long this time!
Galangal staff were excellent last nite they were under the pump but did really well. Food was delicious, no complaints. We enjoyed four appetizers which were shared between four of us, Then ordered a Main meal each with rice Quite generous serves with a vegetable dish to share. Will be back soon.
Galangal has lovely food in a well presented and appointed restaurant and bar. Prices are very reasonable and the portion sizes are quite large. Staff are efficient and friendly. I would recommend this restaurant for adults wanting a lovely meal in classier surrounds.
Four ladies celebrating a birthday at Galangal, we all enjoyed our meals. There were quite a few people in the restaurant but the service was prompt with no waiting for meals or drinks. We are all looking forward to our next visit. Lyn
