Spicy or Mild - EXCELLENT

Loved the food, ambience and service! The tastes amongst the 4 of us dining were very different. I like it super spicy, and the Biryani exceeded my expectations. My husband said the Lamb Vindaloo was the best he has ever had. The Tandoori chicken was scrumptious, and the mild tomato dish that... read more

ABSOLUTE worst dining experience of my life. I went there on Valentine's Day. We had made reservations a couple weeks before then and while the concept of a reservation is typically to avoid having to wait more than 5-10 minutes. Not only did we wait roughly 20 minutes past our 7:00 pm reservations to even have anyone acknowledge we merely... More

Reasonably priced buffet ($12 on a Saturday); very authentic and quite good. goat, chick peas, tandoori chicken, basmati rice, naan, too much to remember -- it was all good!

We were disappointed on our recent visit. Service was poor. Food was average. My wife felt sick after the dinner. Not sure if the food was bad.

I had been here for lunch and also for dinner. I felt the lunch was good but limited option for a veggie meal. The taste of food was good. All types of drinks are available. I reccomend to visit this place during twins matches when the drinks specially the bud beer is offered for less.

We go to this place almost every fortnight, reason is the quality and taste of food. This review is only for ala-carte.The food items are fresh and very nicely cooked,though serving size is small and prices are much on a higher side, but still you will like the place for its ambience. The staff is nice and courteous especially one... More

We first tried w/ Groupon & have returned since. Excellent flavors, loved the HOT vindaloo lamb. Not the cheapest Indian food, our fav for the quality & value is still Himalayan on Franklin. But it's nice for a change. $10-11 lunch buffet is good, but they run out v. early of the meats in the curries & take quite awhile... More

I've gone to the Dancing Ganesha a lot of times using Groupons and also a few times without. They have a good IPA on tap, they have great samosas, awesome coconut red pepper soup and great entrees like sagwala paneer. I don't eat meat so I haven't tried any of the meat dishes. The lunch buffet is really good too.... More

The food was very good, well cooked and presented. Delicious Indian cuisine - But the order wasn't right, one Nan was forgotten twice, brought out with the bill. Ordered lamb and received chicken. Wait staff wasn't at the top of their game.

Over-over-over priced. Food? Meh..not special in any way, and not much of it. Decor and ambiance? Absolutely on a par with a hospital or clinic waiting room, you would never guess you were in an Indian restaurant. Impersonal. Cold and sterile. Service? The waitron wasn't terrible...but the busgirl sure was, Snatched everything, and I mean everything off the table 10... More
