Galanga is a great Thai restaurant in the village. I have brought several out of town guests here and they loved it. Galanga is a small restaurant, but they did recently expand so they can fit more patrons. Some favorites from their menu include: Massaman curry, Rama Peanut, Drunken Noodle, Pineapple Fried Rice, and Panang Curry.

My mouth waters every time I think of Galanga's Drunken Noodles - they are spicy enough and have so much fabulous flavor! Even though the Drunken Noodles are my favorite, their entire menu is fantastic. Great decor and ambiance!

Galanga has great Thai food and wonderful sangria! The place is small and can get crowded, but the food is worth dealing with sitting so close to your neighbors. The pineapple fried rice is really yummy. This place is cash only, but it's cheap so you won't break the bank.

The food is great and inexpensive. Have been going here for years. Love it. I use yo love the staff also but they had some changes and I just don't like. They are not friendly and full of attitude. If you don't give the tip they want they are very disrespectful and make you not want to come back. Only the food keeps me coming sadly.

This is an amazing Thai place in a great location. This is a fun place to walk around. This place definitely has an interesting and delicious spin on Thai food.

had a very very badly sick from their Tofu wok!
I did not even know that it was possible to get that sick from tofu.
Ended up at the hospital!
I would not recommend this place to my worse enemy!

The food at Galanga gets 4 1/2 stars. I had sangria, calamari, and the shrimp drunken noodle. I am a drunken noodle aficionado, and theirs is in my top three. It was fresh and had just the right amount of chili. For dessert, try the fried banana with ice cream - mini spring rolls stuffed with banana, drizzled with honey with ice cream in the center. Delicious food, not authentic Thai, but it's great nonetheless.

The reason I am giving Galanga 3 stars overall is for service. The waitresses left something to be desired. We were seated and a minute later, came back and asked for our order. Obviously we weren't ready, so we ordered drinks and asked for a few more minutes. Another minute later, the waitress came by and demanded our order once again. Told her we needed a little more time, and she proceeded to roll her eyes and huff at us. Third time around (which was half a minute later), we ordered and she rolled her eyes at us as she was walking away. When our food arrived, she threw it on the table and some of the calamari flew into my lap, staining my pants with oil. Some may like this kind of no bs, ultra fast service, but I came there looking for a cozy place to catch up with a friend, and felt like I was waging war with Mean Girls.

To put it bluntly, their food is good but not that good for the attitude. The service made it feel like every other cheap fast-food Thai place in the city, which is a shame because the physical restaurant is quite lovely and intimate.

I LOVE Galanga!! A friend introduced me to this intimate, cozy Thai restaurant 2 years ago and it's still my favorite place for an affordable, tasty meal in the W. 4th St area with a date or small group of friends. Their calamari is the best in the city -- and I love their drunken noodles, curries, and grilled chicken dishes. I've never had a bad meal there. This past weekend was no exception. We showed up at 7:30 pm on a Saturday, were promptly seated and the wait staff was awesome. This is the perfect place to grab great Thai before a film at IFC -- or prior to heading over to the great Belgian beer bar across the street.

Pros: Great calamari, Inexpensive, Intimate, Great & fast waitstaff

Cons: Can get crowded later on the weekends, but it's worth a wait!

The food was really good. I would recommend the Jeeb dumplings and the drunken noodles. They were really good. We got a few different plate and shared, but those were my favorite. The place is cute, but a little too small. I

However, you say it its one of the trendiest places in the area and some of the best Thai in the neighborhood. Like most Thai places, this establishment is cheap, friendly, and delicious. Recommended for an intimate date or a small group.

I eat at Galanga, and order out delivery from Galanga all the time. Very efficient service, fast and friendly. Most of all, the food is excellent! I would recommend it to anyone.

My friend and I found Galanga completely on accident. Now I'm hooked and usually make the trip across the Hudson to eat there at least 2 or 3 times a month. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is cozy, and you simply can't beat the prices. If you like spicy, then try the Drunken Noodles and wash it down with a cold Singha beer. Don't forget a Thai Iced Coffee before or after your meal!

Best Thai in the city.

Food: Amazing! No bland, tasteless dishes here. The pad-thai is quite savory. The duck salad is amazing. You can taste their attention to detail. No full bar. Wine and beer.

Ambience: Small, but they make it work. The lighting is nice. Very hip. P.S. Bathroom is quite clean and enjoyable :)

Service: Usually 2-3 wait staff, which is acceptable, as the place is small. Servers are friendly, and the food is prepared in a timely fashion. Do not bring your credit card, as they only accept cash.

Value: This is what completes the package. Value is something of a lost art in the New York restaurant/bar scene. Here you get amazing food, at a clean, fun place, without having to worry next month's rent!

Overall. Check out this place. I now compare other Thai restaurants to Galanga.

The food here is excellent. Try the Shrinp Fried Rice with lychee! A friend of mine loves the west 4th grilled chicken.

The service is also speedy and friendly.

I almost don't want this place to get too popular. It isn't very big. almost.

This is a jewel of a restaurant. The food was among the best, if not the best period, Thai I've had in the city. Ambience is great, decor is modern and clean yet warm, and the service was fantastic. All they need is a full liquor bar and cocktails to match the food. Also - cash only right now - assuming that's temporary. It will be a pity once it's "discovered" b/c the space is small and I'll never be able to get a table again.

Probably the best Thai food I have had in NYC. It's only been open for a few weeks but I have already visited 4 or 5 times. Very friendly staff and a great location.

I stumbled upon Galanga on a Sunday afternoon, not typical of the standard tourist fare restaurants around West 4th Street ....Galanga was a cool calm oasis with a surprisingly extensive menu, reasonably priced with quiet efficient service.
Only beer and wine are served but the cool decor and tasty food make up for that and there are a myriad of places near-by to grab a 'real' drink afterwards.

In a city where all the Thai cuisine seems to be of the same level, this Greenwich Village eatery takes it up a notch. And then some. The decor is airy, with light wood floors and intimate booths, and the prices are student-friendly, which…
