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!

I love my curry and the food here has to be among the best I've eaten in the UK.. bursting with flavour and lots of choice on the menu. The decor could do with a bit of updating and it wasn't packed on a Saturday evening (although Euro 2016 was on) but don't let that put you off.. the food... More

Six of us frequented this restaurant for a curry. It is a little outside the normal city centre but well worth the walk. We ordered a variety of dishes and breads and were not disappointed. The food was excellent. All the staff were very friendly and catered to our every needs. The décor could be better but we believe the... More

We had a takeaway from Ganesha last night and it was the most delicious food I have eaten in a long while, I couldn't fault it. The saffron rice was so tasty you could eat it on its own and your fish curry and spinach and paneer dish was amazing, well done to the chefs

Went in ordered a takeaway, paid sat and waited, and waited, over 35 minutes later we were told they were 'just bagging it up', which was untrue. More time passed, then we were told '2 minutes'. Over 45 minutes later still no food. We had to go so asked for our money back. She said it was coming and went... More

Dear Mary Thank you for your feedback. Firstly I apologize for the recent experience you have had with us. On the particular evening we were rather busy and normally update our customers with the estimated food wait when they order. The wait at the time was 45mins - which is standard for our takeaway customers. We at Ganesha serve freshly... More
