Excellent Indian Restaurant , If you know Indian food, you will appreciate the authenticity of the cuisine and the ingredients used. The flavours were great and the price is very affordable for the quality of food offered.

A group of 7 of us shared dosas and the mixed meat platter to start which was delicious. We then shared mains (including king prawn vindaloo, lamb gosht balti (I think) and... More

This is definitely not your average Indian restaurant... Friendly staff, tasty food and probably the best Indian restaurant I have been. Don't miss the dahl spinach and the dosas, they are to die for!

We have takeaway from Ganesha almost every week and it is always excellent. I am absolutely in love with the Peshawari gohst chops - crisp tandoored lamb chops in a minced lamb sauce, it is ridiculously good. All the dahl’s and spinach sundries are also authentic and delicious, I can’t recommend the food highly enough, simply love it! Pembroke rd

The staff could not do enough for us and made the whole evening a good one. They explained the menu and advised us to try something different, which we did. Excellent food and no dearer than any other restaurant. Only complaint if any was the drinks were a bit dear. will definitely go again

Absolutely brilliant authentic Indian restaurant. The meal tasted the real Indian flavors infused with spices. I love the Chicken curry and Lamb dopazza. Staff is very friendly and people are very helpful in choosing the right dishes. Must visit this if you want real Indian taste and not the Bangladeshi stuff. I am very happy and visit more.
