Good view and nice Thali

I tried the Special Thali (it's two veg curries as opposed to one, which is the normal curry). The veg curry is delicious and served piping hot. The dal also yummy. It also comes with a paneer curry, a pappad/popadom and two chappatis, and the usual plate of curd. Very tasty, filling meal... read more

We visited Sheenu restaurant after dark for a quick meal. It was quiet that evening and we did not encounter too many of the guests who were staying at Ganpati. Staff were friendly, and prices were very reasonable. Food was average - you can probably find better elsewhere in the city.

Take a break from your wanderings here; best view, great food, and wonderful staff!!! Enjoy some good food and refreshment, savor the incredible view, and...most importantly, share good times with the friendly staff and interesting patrons at Sheenu (above Ganpati GH, Meer Ghat)!!!

We stayed at the Ganpati Guest House, so we decided to try the restaurant out of convenience, and ended up eating there several times. On the first occasion, we had lunch and wanted to be out of the sun, so we opted for tables one level below the rooftop. We had rice, plain dal (just okay), mixed vegetable curry (good)... More

Food had no flavor and no spice. Some of it tasted like out of a can. Massalla Tea was ok and staff was friendly, thats it. Not "Real Indian", maybe more for tourists.

great little café, the waiter brings you a pad and pen and gets you to write your order; great way to get exactly what you want! Excellent value and excellent food. If you fancying something a bit less spicy you can order finger chips, omelette etc. The veg Thali is also pretty good!

I love being up high. I'll gladly pay a premium to eat or drink on top of a building any day of the week. The good news is that this is India and you don't even have to pay that much. Was here at sunset and enjoyed a slow dinner while the sun went down. Staffs were very friendly and... More

We ate here several times as we were staying in the Guest House. The view is amazing and the staff never rushed us. The banana honey pancake at breakfast was lovely and the curries we tried were all good. It's vegetarian with a good range of choices including lighter omelette type options and also serves Kingfisher beer. The atmosphere in... More
