Great food and atmosphere but service was slow given that it was a Valentine’s set menu.

I first went to Galu years ago and really enjoyed, it so I was looking forward to introducing new friends to the restaurant. I was really pleased that it was better than I had remembered. The food is top quality and the portion sizes are incredibly generous! The Greek Meze starter was more than enough for 2. The staff are really pleasant and when I had to make adjustments to my order on account of being pregnant, they were more than happy to make the changes. Those little touches make all the difference! There was a nice pace and we weren't rushed. The atmosphere was great too. I'll be back again soon!

Absolutely brilliant service from start to finish. Beautiful ambience to enjoy a meal and conversation in. Staff were efficient, friendly and polite. The manager was brilliant and made efforts to talk to his guests. He made my family feel like we really mattered to him rather than 'just another customer'; he made us feel looked after and all our needs were quickly met. The food was of top quality and the variety on both the food and drinks menu was enough to make anyone happy! I will definitely go back to this gem of a restaurant!

Went early on a Saturday (7pm) was very quiet, staff very friendly and service was good. Good selection of cocktails (quite expensive) and good menu. Had mezze for starters which was really nice however mains were slightly underwhelming- spaghetti beef Ragu did not have much taste but mixed grill was better (steak)

Busy local Cypriot/Greek/Mediterranean restaurant that offers wide choice of fayre from around the Mediterranean region. When here I tend to stick with the Cypriot choices as they tend to be good. On this visit I chose the beef Stifado which was very enjoyable.

Had a great evening, food was really good, service even though when attending was very friendly and efficient we had to keep getting their attention every time (when first seated to get some drinks and then to order main courses, then desserts, however, once ordered food came in perfect time).

Good, straightforward Turkish food. Tasty and fresh. Good quality. I don't appreciate the automatic addition of 12% tip. Wine was expensive for what are rather ordinary wines. Environment pleasant. A nice evening out with friends.

Never fails to deliver, great food, even better service and a fun buzzy atmosphere. We have been to Galu several times and always live it, from the personal greeting they give to the great food, I’d thoroughly recommend this for a fun night out.

First visit for lunch which was very nice compared to a Saturday evening which I found very noisy. Food was delicious, the atmosphere good (though not very busy). Could do with more waiting staff but otherwise recommended :)

The steak leaves a lot to be desired as they don’t really cook it to your request. But everything else on the menu is very good and the drinks are amazing.

We have been a few times before but dont use the restaurant that often as quite far from where we live but always a pleasure going there.
We went on a Sunday and ordered from the Sunday roast menu
We had avocado and crayfish starter which was a substantial portion in itself and served with bread on the side. I ordered the roast beef and they asked how i like it cooked which is great for me as i like it a little more well done. Finished off with chocolate brownie and a blob of ice cream washed down with a glass of wine. Definitely a good size 3 course dinner and value for money. Its always a pleasure going there but we have always gone on quieter times. Staff are always warm and welcoming and definitely will be going back

Nice setting but food and drink was massively over priced for what it was. I ordered a T-BONE steak priced at over £20.00 it came with a tiny mushroom and 1 sundried tomato and chips. The steak was sooo thin with no bone it in! I don't know how they can put T bone on the menu and serve something that you would get from a café or can buy from aldi for around £2 was more of a quick fry steak than any other steak I have ever had. Prawns were mushy and tasteless. Nice setting but wouldn't go back.

Went with friends for a girls night catch up. Lively restaurant but able to talk at our table normally as noise was moderate. Great food and as two of us were driving the choice of mocktails was welcomed. We had the MG and it was delicious (photo attached). Food excellent and service friendly and quick.

Three of us dined early on a Friday evening, all opting for 3 courses and all of us enjoyed what we had. Beef stifado as a main is worth a mention. Restaurant gets busier and louder as the evening progresses so if you are not a fan of noisy restaurants book an early weekend slot!

Great food and wine as usual, with the added benefit of half price steak on a Tuesday, fabulous deal, fillet steak was cooked to perfection, the only issue we had is that you do feel a little rushed if you eat early 6.30-7pm as they want you out for the second sitting as its a very busy restaurant, apart from that I would highly recommend.

Been here many times before and have always rated it highly. Six of us visited for Sunday lunch recently and the restaurant was extremely busy due to several large tables of diners celebrating anniversaries/birthdays etc. Clearly they were over stretched and the service throughout our courses was very slow. Food was good as always but the noise levels are very high in this restaurant especially at the weekend!

the food was amazing the staff fantastic, my only issue is when i came to pay the bill, it shows you what the meal costs and then an optional amount if you wanted to include service charge this is not a problem i always leave a tip in cash, i paid by card and the waiter automatically put in the higher amount without even asking if i wanted to include the service charge. I wonder how many people have been caught out and paid double service charge by card and then left cash.
