We visited Ganesha during a weekend break in Bristol, having been there a couple of years ago. We thought we would return and enjoy what we recall was a good meal the first time, but we were very wrong. The restaurant was not busy by any means (perhaps 4-5 tables occupied). We were shown to a table that was partially... More

Amazing Indian cuisine. It's a nice Indian Restaurant, nothing posh but the food is high quality. I had Murg Chettinnad, delicious! So good the mango rice and plain naan as a sides. Can't wait to go again.

What appears to be an unassuming restaurant building in Bedminster holds a real secret treasure of eating Indian food you wouldn't find in many other curry houses. Having already been recommended to us by two Indian friends no less, my husband and I visited fairly early on a Thursday evening. Service was polite, helpful and discreet. In particular our waitress... More

Staying with family in their new Bedminster home we tried the Ganesha as it was a walkable distance. We were all pleased with our choice as the food and service were great. I tried a house special lamb dish which was good - huge chunks of fairly tender meat. Prices were fairly average at approaching £100 for four of us,... More

Great authentic food and very friendly staff, only downside is service can be a little on the slow side when they're busy but it's worth the wait.

Great vegetarian selection with really well spiced dishes and large portions. Naan bread is perfect and so are the veggie sides. We had paneer tikka masala, chili paneer, and a dahl. All top class. Will have to go and eat in some time soon. Highly recommended.

This is a completely different Indian food experience! On arrival we were asked if we had been before - we replied no. The waitress then described the menu and the differences between their food and most other Indian dishes. You must try the Dosa's to start, they are fabulous! All the main course dishes are delicately spiced - no blow... More

We really enjoyed this Indian. We don't often try new Indian restaurants as we have an excellent one near us, but this was a delicious surprise! Really authentic and traditional dishes as well as the usual options. Will definitely visit again!
