Galu was one of the best restaurants we've been to and the selection on the menu was second to none. The food itself was exceptional and was presented beautifully on the plate. The staff were more than helpful and served us with smiles. The only downfall of the restaurant was the music... it was too loud and people want to be able to talk over their meal which we found wasn't easy… Read Full Review

As a regular customer I am slightly reluctant to disclose our local treasure. However I feel I owe it to the owners and their fabulous team to let people know how great this restaurant really is.
My husband and I dine at Galu on a monthly basis, (since March 2010), and neither of us has ever been disappointed by the food or service.
If you ever get a chance to try this place, the veal chop is to die for! And the sticky date and toffee pudding absolutely mouth-watering! As an extra the… Read Full Review

We sampled this restaurant after being recommended to go by friends. We wanted somewhere special as it was our anniversary this weekend, but will definitely return before next October!lol The outside looks amazing! It's tucked away in a quiet road in leafy Banstead, and reminded me of a classy restaurant you find in the South of France. Beautifully designed and very very welcoming. The inside was just as good, though we were slightly disappointed to find that the only table available to us… Read Full Review

When we arrived from the outside the restaurant looks amazing. Then when you enter, the experience gets even better, with snakeskin style leather chairs, and a certain swanky ambience, it really gives you a feel that you're in a great place. We were there a little early so sat to have a cocktail. I went to the bar, and was totally ignored by both members of staff. One went to answer the phone and the other i have no idea where he went. When they returned we order 2 cocktails & they were… Read Full Review

What an absolute blessing to have such a devine restaurant on my door step. The food is amazing and the staff are attentive and friendly, this is the best restaurant for miles especially as I live in Banstead. Would normally have to travel to London for anything close to this level. Not any more… Read Full Review

We went to Galu in Banstead for the first time on a Friday night. The place was very busy and the service suffered as a result. Whilst pleasant enough the staff seem rushed and a little unprofessional, missed drink orders etc. One older member of staff who I think is one of the owners was in the kitchen yelling at the cooks which is unwise when it is open to the restaurant. One of the reasons for the less than perfect service and its the main problem with the place is that they cant hear what… Read Full Review

Dined mid-week off the set menu . Meatballs to start and Pork for main. Nothing wrong with the food as such (pork a bit dry) but nothing special.Won't be returning though. Reason ? 12.5% service charge added to bill which goes straight into the owners pocket instead of the servers. Wrong… Read Full Review

Galu has a 2 seating policy and we had a table booked for 9.15 on Saturday night which is on the 2nd seating. We arrived, had to push our way through the crowd of people at bar waiting for tables to get to the resturant desk to let them know we had arrived. no one offered to take my coat and I stood there for several minutes with it in my hand and eventually someone reluctantly took it and told me to have a drink at the bar. The bar was overloaded, people sitting eating bar snacks and drinks… Read Full Review
