Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

These guys are out to rob people off now due to COVID. The customer service is pathetic and the quality of food is pathetic and then they start to overcharge ..... kshs. 440 for a handful of cashews Toppings. The dish itself was ksh. 700....You can do the math.More

I have visited this place several times on my visits to Mombasa, the recent visit was not at all good. Food quality has gone down and customer service is poor.. They are better options to visit in Mombasa

Whenever in Mombasa i make it a point to visit Galaxy. The quality has been spot on every single time. Took my friends who are food snobs and they all loved it. The Prawn Dim Sum was fantastic.

Excellent service and delicious food always. We have been here so many times that we know the menu by heart😁. If they read this: I suggest: 1.change the menu, bring in different varieties of Asian cuisines like Korean, Thai, Vietnamese etc 2. Start delivery service....Make your food cheaper but don't compromise on quality. Lastly Mombasa is predominantly Muslim, Please don't cook other meat items on the same grill and/or use the same utensils, crockery spoons to handle pork.More

Good view, I recommend going for an early dinner before it gets dark otherwise there’s not much to see. However foods not the best, especially for the price they charge.

Galaxy has the best view on the island of Mombasa overlooking the entrance to the port of Mombasa. Great place for a.family or business lunch, the only decent place you can take your clients or family out on the island for oriental cuisine. Service is...great when the place is not full. Food is huge decent depending on what you order. I quite like their phoenix prawns, Char chai beef, char chai chicken and if you like fish, there is always item #16C , garlic and pepper fish. The crab soup is also nice here I am told. Otherwise, very convenient for dinner as well as it is right next to Florida night club. The manager is nice and friendly and makes it a point to come say hello to all his guests personally, on most occasions at least. Thumbs up!More

As it is, the number of quality restaurants in Mombasa are far fewer as compared to Cosmopolitan Nairobi. However, Galaxy is one of them which offers a good Chinese menu alongwith a good view of the Ocean. We went there for lunch and preferred to...sit in the lower area, as the view was better. The menu was quite extensive with a variety of starters and main courses. We opted for spring rills and prawns. For mains, again a wide variety of meat, fish, chicken, vegetables etc. Overall pricing was reasonable, good food, and a lovely view. A must visit when visiting Mombasa town.More

First and for most the view is breath taking. You walk in and you are wow. The staff are always smiling and of course very smart. Well i have been going to the place for over 15 years and believe you me, i never get...enough of there food. I like the starters and i love the mushroom, then followed by the spring rolls, and deep fried prawns.. then i go for the main course. mmm i am drooling as i tell you about it. the rice or noodle in any style is yummy... i cant wait to go this week, and for sure i will send you the pictures... Just come on over and enjoy the best Chinese food in Mombasa.More
