This is our local Indian restaurant. Have eaten here many times and the food never fails to please. Can recommend the chicken madras if you like your madras on the hot side and the chicken is tender, we find the portions large but know people vary in appetite. The service is good although on busy nights you can wait for... More

Value for money was outstanding, we ordered a dish each and it was too much really we could have shared dishes. Huge pieces of chicken, lamb beef etc unlike some places where you are fishing in a sea of sauce only to find one measley piece of potato! Really rate this place and the service was impeccable to, will definitely... More

Went here recently. Food was lovely. We had to wait a while but it was well worth it when it came. We could really taste the favours of each dish unlike some Indians that you go to.

We've been eating here now for over 10 years. The food is always excellent and the staff are very helpful and polite. We've tried many of the dishes over the years and each one has been very distinct in flavour unlike some over Indian restaurants dishes. I would happily say this is the best Indian restaurant in the bay. My... More

I have been to Ganges more than a few times over the past couple years for its takeaway service and would not go anywhere else. The staff are always friendly and welcoming, the food isn't costly, and most importantly the food tastes amazing!! I love the peshwari naan, and like all the food at Ganges, I haven't tasted better anywhere... More

We had a meal here whilst on holiday in Paignton. The service was good, lots of choice on menu, great food and we found the prices reasonable. Would definitely return when we are down this way again.
