It might be convenient if you are staying in Hell's Kitchen but try to find else where. There's plenty of places to go, i promise! Massively over prices for less than even good quality. Diner does not equal cheap. 5$ bagel & cream cheese? you can get better down the block, i promise! I've gone a few times in a... More

All of the wait staff here was very friendly, they refilled our waters and coffees many times, and checked on us throughout our meal. The food was just average diner food in my opinion. I got an Italian omelet and was not impressed. It wasn't terrible, but I wouldn't go back.

With World Cuisine taking over Ninth Ave/Hell's Kitchen/Theatre District, a clean and stylish diner still remains. Galaxy Diner. Great food. Great staff. Locals mix with foreign tourists, and everyone enjoys really good food at good prices.

Nice family diner, large menu, fair prices, excellent portions. Try the swordfish kabobs! Eatries along 9th Ave are more "local places" than the "chains" in the Theatre district. Close to some Off-Broadway Theatres.

I don't wanna seem like one of those bitter southerners because I like the greek touch on a lot of the dishes here but the greet staff and waiters barely spoke English. Am I a jerk because they literally don't understand me or any other guest and I need to repeat it slowly? that being said the food is good... More

We stopped here for an early morning breakfast on a Sunday, and it was nice and quiet. It seems they are open 24 hours on the weekend, as the post-clubbing/bar crowd was just finishing up their breakfast before heading home to bed. There's a good menu selection, and the food is decent and well priced. Be aware of some of... More

They offer a wide selection of choices for breakfast. Their mocha was well served and delicious. The Euro omelet (with veggies) was good, also, and served with mixed greens and fruits. Healthy way to start the day. The staff could make an effort to smile and pretend they are enjoying their job, though.

Great diner - have been going to the Galxay Diner in Hells Kitchen over a long period of time. It has never failed to disappoint.

Nice, simple breakfast at affordable prices. Our waiter was friendly and it was nice to have a meal in a non-touristy restaurant.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
