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

Visited early evening as happy hour was advertised on their website for up to 7 pm. This talked of a meal deal. The waiter had not heard of this however. Nice decor for a bit of a poor area, and staff were friendly. ( did wonder having read some reviews here , certainly think twice about complaining!) Service was slow... More

Thought all the food was very tasty, to quote my daughter's comment on her Palak Paneer, "This tastes like heaven". Especially enjoyed the Aloo Bonda starter and Masala Dosa. Relaxed atmosphere, friendly service, lovely place to eat.

Very good food. A different and more authentic taste to the standard fare from the myriad of curry houses around these days. Enthusiastic team who genuinely care about their food. I'll certainly go again when I'm in Bristol

We are not local therfore turned to TripAdvisor for recommendations. We were not disapointed. The service at Ganesha was brilliant, the waiter told us to try some dishes that we had never tried or heard of and I can confidentlly say they will be part of our favourites.
