Biggest Prawns I've ever had

A lovely meal in a nice, clean setting. Waiting staff were very helpful. We had a poppadom sharing platter for started with consisted of several poppadoms and 4 different dips which were all lovely. The main was gigantic freshwater prawns in a lovely, slightly fruity sauce. Will be returning again.

My husband and I ate here with our friends whilst on a weekend away. The staff were friendly and the food was excellent. The restaurant had a set menu available from 5-7pm 7 days a week and I must say it was excellent value. We all thoroughly enjoyed the food and will return if we are back in carnoustie.

Food overall was good although service was way too quick. Restaurant shuts at 11pm and anyone seated after 8.30pm is rushed to ensure staff can leave as soon as possible!

Visited Fri 21st August with my fiancée for a meal whilst staying in Carnoustie. Food was first class, so tasty. Service was fantastic as well. This place is a must if you are eating on Carnoustie. Best Indian food I've tasted. Five star food, five star service 👍

If you enjoy Indian food then you must eat at Ganges when you're visiting Carnoustie. Every table was occupied which is always a good sign. We had the mixed starter for two which had a variety of traditional Indian tasters, followed by the Moonlit Chicken that had been marinated overnight in a variety of fresh herbs and spices and the...

You get what you pay for and at this restaurant you may pay a bit more than others but the experience makes it well worth it, portions are very generous and the food is always served promptly, full of flavour with excellent service.

Having read some good reviews of here, we were left disappointed from start to finish. It was a busy night, but only one of the 5 members of staff we had contact with seemed to give us any personal attention, let alone a smile. Mixed pakora starter for two as starter - standard of a poor fish and chip shop... More

The owner fitted us in despite us not booking and them being very busy. The food was excellent. I had the chicken tikka masala which was marvellous and nan bread large and tasty. My sister is a fussy vegetarian but even she loved the food. Parking in the side streets can be a bit of a swine but worth the... More

I visit this restaurant often when in the UK. The decor is nice and pleasant, the food is excellent and the staff are very friendly, helpful and efficient. The toilets are always clean. The menu is extremely varied with all the favourites and a long list of chefs specials.

Welcoming, warm and friendly. Nice building in a lovely town. Curry just the thing on a dreary Scottish summer's evening. The food didn't disappoint. Really very good. Well worth a visit.
