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.

Affordable and tasty!

Being an Indian, it is hard to find good restaurants with taste that reminds you about home. But in here i got that feeling. Food was very good in general but i felt the dosa had to be a bit more crispy. Other than that everything else tasted perfect. Service was great and was affordable, which... read more

Read some great reviews on here and I was expecting big things from this place, that's exactly what I got! Really good quality, tasty Indian food! This is my new favourite Indian in Bristol. The Naan bread is the real Indian style not like the ones most Indian takeaways serve. I'll be back! And I have been recommending this place... More

I've been going here since it first opened a few doors down, I always like the passion for authentic Indian food and the fact they have different menu items to 99% of Indian restaurants.

My girlfriend and I recently visited Ganesha on a weekday evening for dinner. We were quickly seated by friendly staff and attended to very well. The staff were on hand to explain and recommend dishes and we enjoyed the food overall. The naan was particularly delicious as well as the mango lassi. The food did take some time to arrive... More

Whilst visiting Bristol for my boyfriend's birthday we picked Ganesha because we both LOVE south Indian food. The service was fantastic and the host explained the menu and style of food - great for those that aren't familiar with this type of indian food. I'm addicted to dosas and order them whenever I can as they're so hard to find,... More

Really great meal here with a family of 4 at the beginning of April. Nicely busy on a Saturday, with a good atmosphere. Extremely friendly staff who introduced all the various dishes on the menu. Starters and mains had brilliant flavour and very reasonably priced. Recommend the chicken chilli fry as a starter! Would come again when in Bristol!

One of my favourite places to call into for an authentic taste of indian cuisine. Exactly what you want when you are craving that kind of meal, but different enough not to be your standard kind of curry. The staff are always attentive and personable and the atmosphere is relaxed. I recommend it thoroughly, in particular the aubergine side dish.... More

We were greeted warmly and got helpful suggestions regarding what to order from the staff. The food was very good and we were very pleased to find authentic South Indian flavours in Bristol. The décor and ambience of the restaurant really adds to the experience.
