Casual
On the attractive and central New Cavendish Street you’ll find Galleria Restaurant and Café, a lovely spot specialising in Persian cuisine. Attractively decorated in warm colours and lavish, tactile materials, Galleria has a classical feel with touches of contemporary design reflective of recent upgrading work. Catering very much to the local professionals of nearby offices this relaxed restaurant serves food throughout the day beginning with a fabulous breakfast selection inspired by both the Middle East and Europe. Light meals and sandwiches are also available, including wonderfully fresh salads, while the Persian style grills – kebabs grilled in tasty marinades and served with rice or breads – are the piece-de-resistance of the entire menu.

A great family meal out where we all tried new things and enjoyed it all. The staff were attentive and friendly and the food was delicious. We would go again and absolutely recommend it! Our children are 10 and 8 and had a super experience here.

Excellent - loved the food and service. It’s a more casual space than some of the other Persian restaurants in the city; the food is excellent - a great place for friends.

Big portions, tasty food, but we had to wait for quite a long time before it was served. Also, some of the dessert were not available to order

Food was lovely as ever. Service charming but a bit slow, perhaps our waiter was a trainee. The only complaint was that the couple beside us were eating and using their phones at the same time. At times, they were watching videos, with sound, showing them to each other etc. This is a shame. We didn't feel we could ask them to turn the volume down as we felt this was something the restaurant staff would manage. It spoiled our evening.

Food was OK, service ordinary. Beer and wine menu very peculiar. The waiting staff seemed to be unfamiliar with the menu and couldn't provide any advice.

I have eaten at Galleria several times. I love the food, it is always excellent. I took a group of friends here for lunch and they all enjoyed it. It's a lovely family run restaurant. The paintings on the walls are beautiful too.

The service was appalling. The waitress could not have cared less about us.
When our guest arrived she immediately asked if we wanted to order before he had time to even look at the menu.
She forgot to bring three of our starters and instead the main courses arrived! She had clearly not listened to our order or written it down. At first she claimed we had not ordered them...
We used to love this restaurant but now we have no intention of going again.
The food was satisfactory but no more than that.

Quality of food here is always good but I would say that the starters are overpriced for the size given, compared to the main course which is very reasonable. First hour of our time there there wasn’t any background music and not many people so felt a bit too quiet but we soon made up for it in chatter. Otherwise highly recommended for tasty Persian food.

A bit pricy for a Persian restaurant, but the quality is good. The food variety is rather limited as they don’t have and stews and have only grills

I had initially reserved a table for four at Galleria and later modified this as our group increased in size. However the system did not update, so when we turned up on Iranian new year we were told that we could not stay and there was nothing they could do for us. They made absolutely no effort to find a solution to seat us or ask us to come back at a later time and made us feel really unwelcome. We tried to explain that it was Iranian new year and we had booked the table weeks ago, but they didn't seem to care or want to help us in anyway. The lack of empathy and motivation makes me never want to go to this restaurant again. I found the staff very rude and incompetent.

The galleria had a very interesting menu and the food was of very good quality. We were recommended to order three to four dishes for two people. The portions were very generous and I would recommend start with two to three dishesto share.

The restaurant was very noisy at lunch time and quite open so it is not great for quiet conversations.

Tasty and good quality Persian food. Dessert was a bit stale though and all the extras such as dooogh, starters, desserts and tea are quite high in price which results in a fairly hefty bill.

Galleria serves great Persian food, attentive service. It doesn't have a particularly buzzing atmosphere or presentation but if you fancy a quiet place with tastey Persian food you won't be disappointed.

Really lovely authentic Persian cuisine. My first time, but went with a native who ordered in Persian, taught me the dishes and was impressed (tho she did say not as good as her mother's!)
