The pro-Palestine Bradford West MP suffered a suspected broken jaw, broken rib and bruising in the attack in Golborne Road in Notting Hill on Friday evening.
The Respect Party tweeted a picture of Mr Galloway after the assault, showing two red lumps on his right temple.
"The Respect Party thanks all well-wishers," the party said.
Mr Galloway had been posing for pictures when a man shouted a comment about the Holocaust and attacked him, according to his spokesman.
The Metropolitan Police said Neil Masterson, 39, of Camden Hill, London, will appear before Hammersmith Magistrates' Court on Monday.
Police said he was charged with "assault by beating which is religiously aggravated on a male in his 60s and also common assault on a male in his 40s".
It was understood the second charge related to a member of the public who stepped in.
Earlier a Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "The victim of the assault was taken to a central London hospital for treatment to his injuries.
"He was discharged from hospital this morning, Saturday 30 August.
Last weekend, the politician was in Northern Ireland to address supporters at the Ulster Hall in Belfast during an event which unionist politicians objected to.
Around 200 loyalist protestors gathered outside the venue to voice their anger amid a heavy police presence.
Mr Galloway, who was born in Scotland and supports the No campaign ahead of the Scottish independence referendum, talked about politics in the UK and abroad.
He was interviewed earlier this month by West Yorkshire Police following a speech in Leeds in which he claimed Bradford was an Israel-free zone.
