Good Indian food and pleasant service

I consider this Indian restaurant to be my favourite in Rome. The food is consistently authentic and good quality, the service is excellent and we have got to know the staff as friends. Many Indian families on a trip to the Eternal City eat here so they must know their stuff! I always get my bowl... read more

This indian restaurant is by far the best meal I've had. There are 2 other Indian places in the vicinity, we tried all 3 and this was the best food. Good service too. I would definitely go there again and recommend everyone to visit as well. Very near to the Colosseum (walking distance). Did I mention great food.

Its was an overall pleasant and enjoyable time. Great value for money and a rich cultural experience. It is a good change from local... More

would not recommend this! Being a foodie by heart and soul, its very disappointing when the food you eat, doesn't stand up to the expectation.We were in Venice a day before and the Indian restaurant "GANESHJI" servers amazing Indian food. probably even better than the food which is being served in India itself. Considering the rating here,i tried this place.... More

Enjoyed every mouthful. If we were staying longer we would definitely go back again. Waiting staff very friendly and helpfull. Husband does a lot of travelling and said it was "truly authentic Indian cuisine". We have been in Italy for two weeks and it is the best meal we have had.

This place added a 4 euro surcharge to the bill claiming it was "government tax." I believe that they are ripping people off. I also saw them trying to overcharge another family sitting next to us who got the bill amount to be reduced. Do not eat at this place!

My family and I eat at this restaurant once a week. The service is always excellent and the food delicious. We also appreciate that they have family friendly hours. My young children are in bed at 8 pm and it's nice to find a restaurant that accommodates and early dinner.

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
