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.

We ordered an office lunch for our small company and they catered for all of us - including the vegetarian and the dairy free. Particularly enjoyed the lamb makhani. Will be ordering again.

This was our third visit after a gap of about a year and the food and service were just as good. It is refreshing to be able to sample dishes that you don't find in "run of the mill" Indian restaurants.

The service was very personal; time was taken to make sure we were welcomed and accustomed to the menus. We were then told the story of the restaurant and given the low-down on what to order. Food was delicious, will definitely go again!
