Priding itself on being 100% true to its Indian roots, Bedminster���s Ganesha Authentic Indian Cuisine is a family run restaurant providing high quality food and efficiently friendly service. Set in the Bedminster suburb of Bristol, Ganesha offers a menu completely different to other Indian restaurants in the region, offering guests true Indian food from home recipes. With a selection of dishes from all parts of India, the Ganesha menu takes you on a unique culinary journey, on which you���ll sample exciting food you may never have heard of and certainly won���t have tried here in Bristol, from handmade breads to appropriately spiced curried fish dishes. Combining efficiency and friendliness, Ganesha���s service is second to none while the simple d��cor of the dining room is focused on comfort and space, the furnishings contemporary and sleek with nods to the restaurant���s roots in Indian artworks including a statue of the revered elephant god himself situated behind the bar.

Really is a bit different

I went to this restaurant with a couple of my friends for dinner and was amazed at the quality of food we got. The Paneer Butter Masala was simply Awesome and the Dal Makhni was pretty close keeping the U.K. in mind to what we get back home in India! The Cheese Naans too were very tasty. But more than...

You would be surprised at the quality of food in this restaurant.It does not look much from the outside and a bit cafe-ish on the inside, but the staff were very helpful and the food was excellent. I do not live locally but would if back in Bristol, would definitely go back again.

I was at Ganesha with my colleagues and friends last night. The food was absolutely amazing and the service was brilliant. As some one who enjoys Indian food (and Knowns his Indian Food), It was good to get a taste of Authentic Indian cooking which is very different from the food served in curry houses. Will definitely recommend this restaurant... More

We had a delicious meal, plenty of vegetarian and vegan options, and definitely above average for Indian food. It is a bit pricier than most Indian restaurants, but you pay for what you get. Would also recommend booking as it can get rather busy. Definitely recommend.
