“Wonderful Indian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

We sample Indian food in every country we visit and the food at Ganesha was some of the best. The restaurant is decorated in a very inviting way. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive- we had wonderful service throughout our meal. Prices were reasonable. Each entree came with basmati rice and both a fresh vegetable platter as well as a hot, mixed vegetable dish. Highlights of the meal were the tandoori chicken and the chicken tikka masala. The quality of the chicken was very high, nice pieces of white meat, and the seasoning was spot on. The chana ki dal was a flavorful mixture of both lentils and chickpeas. The paneer makheni came in a spicy cream sauce and was delicious too. The huge plate of basmati rice had fried onions on top which was a nice addition. Portions were huge. Everyone was very engaged in making sure we had an enjoyable meal, which we did.

“Very enjoyable and inexpensive Indian meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

I was here with a colleague and a friend in dec 2013. None of us were particularly brave with the menu but the chicken tikka masala was excellent! The service was good, the setting comfortable and the location extremely convenient. It was a Monday night and no booking was needed so it was a convenient, tasty, reasonably priced and very enjoyable meal.

“Excellent indian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

This restaurant was just across the road from us in Amsterdam. We ate paneer vindaloo and chicken JalFrezie. Free poppadums to start, excellent service, a choice of wine. All meals included rice, salad and a hot vegetable mix, the curries were rich and tasty and I particularly liked the chicken meat in my curry, not just huge lumps of breast meat, but smaller strips which really soaked up the flavour. Why dont more restaurants do this ? A little pricier than the UK, especially the wine, but overall a very good meal.

“Excellent value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

Myself and two friends ate here one night. The food was well cooked. Service was excellent and the free side dishes provided was the icing on the cake ! The only criticism I have was a I found the restaurant a tad to warm. ( I found this before tucking into my curry ) Excellent value for money though and would return
