Wonderful food and the staff was great. They do take reservations but we were early enough that we did not need one. The restaurant did fill up and was very busy before we left. The portions were very large and the flavors were wonderful. We look forward to dining at Galange Thai again when we are in Tacoma.

Had two lunches here ( and leftovers for dinner!) I recommend both items I ate: Red Curry w/ chicken (4 on the Richter Scale of heat) Thai basil stir fry w/ chicken (still a 4) Great stuff. I'd recommend ordering to-go as their seating is limited and a bit crowded. Service is quick.

This is one of our daughter's favorite restaurants in Tacoma. We've enjoyed going there when we visited, but now we've moved here, so we can go as often as we like! Everything we've ever had there has been wonderful. I especially love lamb, and theirs is always tender and juicy. Also, the restaurant is in a good location in downtown... More

Just finished an appointment nearby and it was time for food. We used our GPS to locate since we were unfamiliar with the area. The menu was extensive and we both tried a new Thai dish. Both of us loved them though neither of us could finish the more than ample portions.

Mediocre food at best though service was good. Can't really remember what we ordered prior to a show. There must be better in Tacoma.

Had a delicious dinner of fresh Spring Rolls, Tofu Pad Thai, and Eggplant with Sweet Basil before heading to Pantages for a performance. Restaurant was packed so reservations might be good insurance to get a table before events. Friendly service. We ordered spring rolls when we got our menus, and they arrived within minutes. Entrees were out within 15 minutes.... More

We had dinner here before a show - easy to find, good (meter) parking, friendly staff. I had the Chicken Phad Thai and my wife had the Tofu Swimming Rama. Both were pretty good. Server was friendly and the place got busy after we were seated - a good sign... We'd like to try them for lunch some time.

The staff are always nice even when they are busy. The food is great and they give you plenty so you have lunch leftovers!

The food was very tasty & well-presented. Simple decor - a family business. The menu has a wide selection.

From the decaying front sign, to the mid-matched furniture and oily tasteless crab Rangoon this place is little more than a cafeteria with inflated prices. Located in a lovely area of Tacoma, this restaurant squeaks by with minimal accommodations and marginal food, if you're looking for anything more than a casual dining experience avoid this place. One look at the... More
