【閉店】Galata Turkish & Mediterranean Restaurant
Delicious food and great service. This Mediterranean Turkish restaurant offers great menu Options at reasonable prices.
Excellent food . Attentive wait staff
Very helpful explaining items on menu
Extremely salty food !!!! I should have returned it but was hungry !!! Owner said to tell her next time ! Food was good
We have been coming here for some time. The service is always slow but the food is very good.
This time was different. It was Valentines Day weekend and very busy, but it is usually busy.
It took almost 20 minutes for the waitress to come to our table and take our order. I had to flag someone down to ask for water.
The hummus appy tasted flat - as if it was made days ago or lacking in flavor enhancements like lemon and garlic.
One entrée, the okra dinner was awful. It wasn't even the color of okra. It tasted as if it was frozen for many months and just reheated. There was no flavor and unfortunately did not smell right. We didn't eat most of it fearing we might get sick. When they finally came to clear our plates, we told them that. At least they deducted this entrée price from the bill. I have made okra for years and know what it tastes like and what it is supposed to look like.
The other entrees, chicken shish with salad were fine.
But not once did the waitress come to check on us and ask how our meals were.
Sadly, we won't be returning.
The experience spoiled what could have been a nice Valentines Day meal.
We really enjoyed the food but the service was lacking and we ended up not being able to enjoy our meal experience.
Excellent food, nice staff, real good lamb chops, wonderful “bottom of the pot” dessert and one of the better Turkish restaurants
Galata is a wonderful destination for authentic Middle Eastern food and everyone including the owners are very friendly and eager to please.
We ordered hummus, baba ganoush & zucchini fritters for appetizers and everything was delicious.
I really love their falafel which are crispy and perfectly cooked but all the other choices are equally tasty.
Incredible food and personal service. One of the best Mediterranean meals I have ever had. Wonderful family owned restaurant that I will be going back to very soon!
This was our first time but it will not be our last time. Everything was delicious
Went here for the first time on a rainy Sunday afternoon and had a great time. The food was fantastic and the waitstaff were wonderful. Highly recommend!
Always great food
Very good Turkish food. The lamb dishes were outstanding as was the falafel. Dishes were served with sides of a small salad, rice pilaf, bulgar wheat, and a hot pepper. Service was friendly but entrees did not come out together. We noticed this happening at other tables as well. Overall, the quality of the food and the friendliness of the staff made up for the erratic service. BYOB
Food is excellent. This is my fifth visit, and will not be the last.
I had the Lamb Shank and mmmmmm....delicious!!! well prepared!....very good!...I encourage to to try it!
I have dined here many times and the food is always excellent! The Galata Salad and Chicken Shish are among my favorites, but honestly...everything is delicious!
I have had dinner at Galata several times and the food is consistently fresh and delicious.
They offer a wide variety of food to please everyone.
Food is delicious! Service is very good!
Great meal! So excited to have found a Non-Italian, Mediterranean dining option in this area! Delicious mezze platter, grilled and homemade items all delicious and farm fresh. A real gem.
Best Falafels in the area! Reasonably priced and its a BYOB too!!
Have dined here many times. Great food and attentive staff. highly recommend!
This restaurant was exceptional...the food was delicious, and the service was wonderfuul
We will be back with friends
The food was just outstanding! Fresh, soft pita bread. Very tasty and crispy felafel, that was not at all dry. Delicious, creamy hummus. Perfectly done chicken shish kabob. Unassuming exterior in small strip mall, but inside lies a treasure of great cooking. We plan to return often.
Food and service are good. Restaurant has a nice vibe. Decent place to get your Turkish food fix but have definitely have had better in the city.
Food was great, but the service was so slow it kind of ruined the evening. The restaurant was pretty empty, but the waitress said they had lots of takeout orders because it was raining. Still, shouldn’t take an hour between appetizers and the main course!
Food was really good and very tasty - not overpriced whatsoever. Good sized portions and great value.
Food was excellent; service was a bit slow. Overall very good.
We went with friends for dinner on a Saturday night. Our table was waiting for us when we got there which is always a plus. We shared 3 appetizers which were plenty for the four of us. We each enjoyed our main courses which included kebabs and lamb stew. Conversation was easy.
Would definitely go back and recommend.
I had high expectations as it was referred to by a Turkish person and as a Turkish food lover we drove 45 minutes to get there. Maybe I had high expectations but was quite disappointed. Quality was similar to or lower than many Turkish places near where we live in Central Jersey area. Wont be driving there again.
The food took about 1 hour to come after we ordered and that was just the appetizers. The restaurant had emptied and then refilled during the time we were there. Service was not exceptional either. The food was good, but very salty.
Galata is a welcome change to our local restaurants. Each time we visit we usually order our favorites (Galata salad, falafel and lamb shish kabob) and then try one or two new selections. The latter never ever disappoints (Iskender kabobs are only served on weekends is now at the top of our favorite list). Every item that is prepared here uses the freshest ingredients and has such a wonderful combination of spices.
My 3rd time here and never disappoints! Love their Chicken Adana. Just the right amount of spice. Appetizers are amazing too. Excellent service and they never rush or bother you. We were the last ones in the restaurant and no one bothered us or asked us to leave. Love this place!
food was great. Service slow, server was about 15 years old, maybe the owners son or nephew so he didnt really know how to be a server. It took an hour to get our main entree because I beleive he forgot to put in the order. No one attended to us this whole time, we wouldve sat there without our main dishes until I asked. When I approached one of the hostesses/managers etc she smiled but was defensive about the meal, said its coming and didnt apologize. So all in all , if you can stomach the slow service (go EARLY)..we were there at peak time and they cant handle all the people. All in all, food was great but you gotta wait!
Very authentic Turkish/Mideastern food. Family owned and operated. Hummus, baba, grape leaves are great. We have dined here many times and have ever been disappointed. Service can be a little slow. Reservations needed on weekend nights.
The food and service was great. It’s hard to find a good Mediterranean restaurant in our area and glad found this place. Will definitely recommend and visit again.
This is the second time we've dined at Galata. The service is always prompt and friendly. The waitstaff is patient and eager to describe their traditional Turkish menu. We loved the cold cubed eggplant dish! It was tender and seasoned to perfection. Thank you for offering a separate vegan menu. We appreciate it very much. It make dining out so much more enjoyable when you don't have to sift through the menu. We will be back!
Food is incredible. Whole staff is very friendly. Service was a bit slow but not frustrating. Overall, would definitely go back
Owners are exceptionally nice and service oriented. I was 45 minutes late on a very busy night and they got my wife and I seated within ten minutes. Food was very tastey and they were happy to give thorough explanations of what dishes were. I’ve gotten to go before from there and it was always good too.
Good middle eastern / Turkish comfort food. Good value. Nice size portions. Good service. They do not rush you to the next course. Even though it was in a strip mall, the ambiance was nice. Not noisy.
I would recommend it. Really good food.
Food was very good, service staff friendly. Would definitely recommend.
Freshly prepared Mediterranean cuisine at a good price point. The owner of the restaurant was friendly and accommodating. Everyone in our party of 5 enjoyed our meals from vegan appetizers, vegetarian, vegan, and traditional entrees. I want to personally thank them for having a separate vegan menu with a very nice variety. I had a white bean salad and cold eggplant dish. Both were seasoned perfectly and very tasty. We all left full and happy. I will surely be back.
