Galanga Restaurant Review

: 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 décor is airy, with light wood floors and intimate booths, and the prices are student-friendly, which is fitting for its proximity to NYU. The usual Thai standards are on offer (and all hit the mark), but we recommend the sliced charcoal beef salad with roasted chili paste, lime juice, shallot, cucumber and plum tomatoes or the seafood Phuket-style of roasted chili paste with salmon, shrimp, scallops, mussels, calamari, razor clams, bell peppers, carrots and sliced celery. Top it all off with a Thai iced tea and you’ll be back sooner than you think.
