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.

Been a customer since they opened but will not go back. Admit it is several weeks since we were there, but to go to a restaurant and be ignored for an hour whilst takeaways fly out of the door tells me all I need to know about their priorities. Sad - the food was fab and interesting (from day 1... More

We have been back so many times now. The food is out of the world. The owner/manager gave us advice on what to try and how to eat indian food properly. It's the not the typical kind of indian menu with Massala/Korma...... It's what I assume is what genuine food is like. Truly out of this world. The restaurant does... More

The food was OK but the service wasn't very good which seems to be a common theme in recent reviews. I could see a number of tables getting agitated as they waited in vain for someone to take their order, bring their food or clear away. We sat for a good 20 minutes with all the dirty plates after we'd... More

We ordered this at 9, got told it was confirmed straight away and delivery would be 9.45. No show so we rang up and was told the order was not confirmed til 9.20 and that we wouldn't be receiving till 10.20. This was a lie, I checked with Just eat and they confirmed the time in which the delivery was... More

We (6 of us) recently visited this restaurant on a Saturday evening. The food was excellent - well above the quality of a normal Indian restaurant - with very few of the curry house 'standards' and with many of the dishes on offer new to everyone round the table. The food we really enjoyed. The service however was poor. The... More

We visited the restaurant back in March for a family birthday meal. The staff are friendly and attentive. They offered good advice to us on what to order. There was a very good varied choice and we tried and shared several dishes. We were very pleased with the service and meal. We have not had chance to go back since,... More

Reviewed this place about 2 years ago and have been back a couple of times since. On this occasion it felt as if there had been a change of chief, previously the naan for example was crisp and light but full of flavour, dosas similar. This time it was as you would get in any run of the mill indian... More

This place is situated on the outskirts of Bristol city centre, I was recommended by a work colleague to give it a try as I love a good curry. The dosa was nice although very filling and the lassi drink was very good. The owner wants you to take your time and enjoy the food. I look forward to be... More

Have eaten here three times now over quite a span of time. The guys are enthusiastic and genuine and proud to assert that their cuisine is Southern Indian rather than the mainstream Bangladeshi and explain the difference. They try to steer you away from pappadoms and onion bhajis although these are on the menu if you want, they encourage though... More
