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 visited Ganesha a couple of times and were never disappointed with neither the food nor the service. This time, they even went to the extent of making a custom non spicy dish for our little boy who doesn't like hot food and offered him a free side of chips! All in all, a great experience.

Not a standard British Indian curry, no oil sitting on top, authentic taste. Fantastic taste and fantastic value!

Eaten here a few times and the food never disappoints. Not the usual UK Indian dishes but the ones they serve are authentic, fresh and really tasty. The best Indian food I've ever had. Friendly, helpful service too.

Excellent food, service was good, but a little bit pushy. If a pregnant girlfriend wants to have a chicken Korma just let it go! Bathrooms are in dire need off a good refurbishment.

Hello Keith. Thanks for your feedback. Thanks for liking our food and service. I am sorry you felt our service a bit pushy. We always try to give suggestions so as to have a very balanced combination on each table. We are working on redoing our toilets soon. I hope to see you soon at Ganesha. Regards, Prasad More
