Breathtaking rudeness from staff (owner?) on the phone and in person when food was picked up. Rice was undercooked and the pad see ew burned. When told we wouldn't be returning based on service and name calling, person at counter shrugged and said "that's fine, we've been busier than ever with COVID". We have tried really hard to frequent our local restaurants forever, but especially now. No more Galare Thai for us now though. We'll make the trip to Poulsbo to the (frankly much better, and certainly more agreeable) competition. Two thumbs way down.
I have seen this Thai food place for years now but have never tried it until now. I went out to get formula for my son and my wife told me to bring back dinner as well but not pizza. (the downfall there is there are like 5 pizza places in our tiny town so pizza would have been easy). I poked around on yelp and google to find a restaurant that was open and this place seemed to be the only place that wasn't burgers or pizza that was open. One big down fall here is that this restaurant also exists in Sequim and their website is actually for the one in Sequim. So when you try to find the Kingston menu it is super confusing because there is nothing that says the menus are the same or even that they are the same place. It was about 7:25pm (they close at 8pm) when I called to place my order. And when I called some guy answered the phone that seem REALLY annoyed that i would dare call 35 minutes before close to place an order. I almost hung up on him but instead I decided to make his life difficult and place an order... I am glad I did. The redeeming quality of this place is that their food is delish. We had the Beef Phad Thai, Basil Fried Rice with chicken, and fried Spring Rolls. The entrees were great the spring rolls were bland. This place is pretty run down, when you walk in the front door it seems like you are walking into a dirty kitchen and to your right is a dingy dinning room that is empty. I never see any cars here and now I know why. Get take-out don't bother dining in. Pros: Really Good Entrees Cons: Confusing Website Rude Staff Gross Restaurant
Good food but the young kid who answers the phone and greets customers at the door is nothing but rude and dazed out of his mind. I think he eats 3 edibles before he goes to work. Has never said thank you once and is simply ruining your business. Time to train him on proper customer service or give him the boot.
I HIGHLY recommend this place! The food is outstanding and keeps my family and I coming back!
We got take out last night, we payed over the phone, and our food was brought out to the car. Such great service! The Cashew chicken is delicious. It was filled with lots of meat, cashews, and yummy veggies! We will be back!
Probably your best bet for decent Thai food in North Kitsap. It's definitely no Mae Phim Thai (which I'd rate a 4), but the food is good and hits the spot, and the servings are large. We order take out from Galare Thai at least once per month and have yet to be unhappy with our meals.
Such a cute place and nice people but our food was soooooo burned. Black burned. Black tofu, black noodles and I didn’t even know that my dish had carrots
I've only had a few of their noodle dishes, all of which were quite good. I routinely pick up their pad Thai to go, as it's among the best I've had in WA state. Noodles are chewy, sauce is tasty... it's just really well prepared! Unfortunately the server/host is rather unpleasant. He seems to really hate his job, like he's annoyed at having to actually take customers' orders and deal with people. That's why I only order to go.
How is this cobwebbed, underserved, overpriced, and tasteless pseudo Thai place get 4 Stars??? I've had objects in the commode that taste better. ZERO STARS DON'T WASTE your money. Go to the Joy Luck a block away.
The food is good, I just wish the guy who answers the phone and rings you up had better customer service skills. He's rather abrupt and I find myself not going as much as I would as he's not very friendly. Hence I only do take out but it has no ambiance anyway so take out is best.
We enjoyed our food so much that my boyfriend was like a broken record. He repeatedly said how delicious the food was with every bite
Decent service and portions and pricing that match please.
Bombest food in town but their portions are way too small, I'd eat there 10x as much if you actually got a whole serving. And when you order to go it's even smaller ://
This was horrible the fried rice was cooked in burnt oil and was black in color. The See Ewe was Burnt badly and also cooked in burnt oil. When we told the waiter it was burnt he said the charcoal on the food gives it more flavor. Worst Thai food ever!
