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.

Three adults and my two grandsons sat down and the waiter brought over a high chair for my granddaughter.G The staff were warm and friendly, service was quick. The waiter made... More

The food was ok but I wouldn't say amazing, the poppadums could have been crisper. I asked the waiter about the ingredients of one of the curries and he seemed unsure but assured me it was tomato based. When it arrived it was a thick creamy based sauce exactly what I was trying to avoid for my diet! Apart from... More

We wherein the area and had seen Ganesha on Tripadviser so thought we would try it. The outside looked a little drab and the decor inside is very dark. However the welcome was second to none and the food was delicious. The waiters could not have been more helpful and the authentic food was full of flavour and far superior... More

Every time I visit the staff are exceptionally friendly and the food is always really quick to prepare. The taste is always amazing, I actually feel good after eating at Ganesha unlike most Indian places. Highly recommend if your looking for a new favourite

Fish tikka - perfectly spiced and substantial Chicken curry (Kozhi Varutha Curry) - moist chicken and very tasty with just enough 'kick' Tarka Dall - slightly disappointing given the quality of the other two dishes

Having lived in the curry quarters of Birmingham (Sparkhill) for many years I have become an expert on curries. I was not expecting too much, therefore, when visiting this restaurant in Bristol. On arrival, we were greeted by charming hosts who explained in detail the menu, which was quite different from the normal Asian menu. They promised very different and... More

Really delicious curry if you eat in, but DO NOT order a takeaway delivery from here, whatever you do - last time I ordered, I waited over 2 hours, was refused a refund and then had to physically drive down to the restaurant for my refund, without much of an apology.

Like I said in the title this place isn't located in the greatest area and parking is a little restricted, I normally park in the asda opposite. Other than than great food and great service! Been here a few times now.
