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.

If you're looking for that boring balti or vicious vindaloo go elsewhere. If you want a friendly local place that's just a bit different to your usual "Indian Restaurant" check this one out.

We went straight to Ganesha from the airport in desperate need of a curry having been out of the country for a short while. The quality and taste of the curry is amazing and we would highly recommend it. The restaurant itself is very basic but if you want an authentic and healthy curry this is a very good option.

Another amazing meal at Ganesha, food was delicious with interesting flavours and spices. The menu is varied and the staff go out of their way to recommend favourite dishes and also good food combinations. This is the jewel of east st and beats any other curry house in the area!Highly recommend!

Had a very good meal here last month and would recommend this place to anyone interested in something a little different. The vegetarian mixed platter was a revelation – I never knew spinach could be made edible let alone delicious! Lovely little tasty balls of various onion, potato, veg, salad, dip, this could be a top meal alone and is... More

Got biryani and paneer both of which were absolutely delicious and according to my friend "tastes like india". Went back again and wasn't disappointed. Definitely worth the bristol food award 2013 commendation.

Wewnt back to the Ganesha after a long absense.. had forgotten how good the food was. Excellent cooking and service.. though there was a very rowdy table nearby the evening was great. Maybe a little pricey for mains £9 - 13 ish.

My husband and I went here last night and we were hugely disappointed. We weren't expecting much in terms of ambiance but I would say it looks better online than in life. We weren't greeted at the door for ages and when we were seated we weren't given menus for about five minutes. This was a preview of what was... More
