This was my first visit here and certainly won't be my last, I'm from the other side of town and really disappointed this place isn't on my doorstep as I would be here more often. First thing I was impressed with was the very attentive waiter who dealt with our table all evening. He explained about the menu, was knowledgable... More

Probably the best curry ive ever had! Table service was a little slow, there were plenty of customers and not many staff. Id imagine they would be looking into the issue. It would not put me off, well worth the wait. Staff were friendly. It has certainly left me with a memorable taste experience. I am definately going back!!!!

We ate in Ganesha for the first time and we will definitely be returning. The food was delicious and Prasad, the co-owner was truly the host with the most. As a starter we tried 'Masala Dosa' which was a nice change from my usual choice in other Indian restaurants. For main course, the Murg (chicken) Kadha was delicious. My partner... More

Ganesha is our favourite Indian restaurant (we even prefer it to well-known Indian cuisine restaurant in London). Ganesha doesn't rely on gimmicks just really good food (the meat is never cheap and nasty). We've never had a bad meal. After eating here, I can appreciate the subtlety of flavours in Southern Indian cuisine that other Indian restaurants don't seem to... More

As a south Indian, my palate can, by default, discern the 'authenticity' of food served up in a restaurant. I have to say that I was very impressed by the food at Ganesha in Bedminster. We ate at Ganesha for the first time this week. The restaurant was getting busy, yet we received a pleasant reception and we were offered... More

Thanks a lot Padma for such a superb feedback. I am glad you and your husband had a good time at Ganesha and have thoroughly enjoyed your food. Most of the times it becomes very difficult to make people understand that what we are doing is Indian as our menu does not contain the typical (stereotype) dishes that you find... More

A fabulously authentic indian restaurant with knowledgable staff who want to make sure that you get the best experience possible. Many dishes are different from the norm and the waiters are more than happy to point you in the right direction depending on your taste. The price point is also very reasonable !

We had an excellent meal and great service as always. One of the best Indian restaurants around and if you haven't been there yet give it a try. The dosa or lamb dishes are exceptional.
