Galaxy restaurant did not disappoint. They have quick servers. Polite and knowledgeable on the menu. The food is quite good. Definitely worth the price.

The Chinese tea is now charge per cup and not per pot. They now also start charging for chili sauce. If you pay by card, there is a 5% surcharge. If you pay by mpesa you have to pay for withdrawal charges.

I treated my wife to some Chinese food on her birthday. I wasnt disappointed. Try out the Schezuan crab. The veg dishes and as well as the non veg, both are good. Ideal for any group, friends, family, couples, business meetings etc.

Previously had great tasty, flavoursome food here, however was underwhelmed this time - Took relations for a celebration meal and all the dishes tasted almost the same - my (local) guests said the same....sorry - the location is great, but the food needs to get up to standards held previously!
