Good dinner, nice atmosphere, fair pricing. It was completely empty when I went, I get the impression the college crowd is their customer base and I was there at an off time. I would go back.

The Dancing Ganesha is a true gem located in downtown Minneapolis. The food is outstanding, the service impeccable, and the atmosphere is Indian with a twist of modern. Never a wait for a table, all in all, a pleasant and affordable dining experience.

We have been to this restaurant a few times in the past. My previous criticism of the restaurant was the service, with one notable exception. On this occasion, the waitress, Messay, did a spectacular job. She struggled a little opening the wine, but after the cork broke, she offered us a new bottle, which I declined. The food was delicious,... More

I was in Minneapolis on business and started jonesing pretty bad for some Chicken Tikka Masala. The Dancing Ganesha was just a couple of blocks from my hotel so I walked over for an early dinner. This wasn't the best Indian food I've ever had, but it certainly wasn't the worst. I went fairly early, around 4:30, so I was... More

We happened upon this restaurant and it smelled amazing. I was the only one had been to an Indian restaurant before but everyone... More

I have been there a few times. The moment I walked in the door I could tell the server did not want to see us. I am a very nice guy so I didn't understand. We had to wait several minutes just for someone to come over. It was not busy. The server came over just said "ready" I thought... More

We enjoyed our meal at this restaurant. The staff was very attentive and knowledgeable about the food. Everything we ordered was tasty and delicious. Samosas were crispy and delicious. My Kurma dish was saucy and great. You cannot go wrong here.
