The restaurant is located on the 9th floor with good ambiance. They have buffet and ala carte menu. Buffet spread is good. Staff is warm and professional. One can also order masala dosa! I went during lunch. It is a bit expensive as lunch per person costs around 165000 IDR.

There was a wide variety of dishes to choose from but i had been turned down twice for the dishes that i asked fro from the menu. So i went with the regular biryani and it tasted good. The only drawback was that it took a long time for the food to be served. Like really long.

The weekday lunch buffet has around 10 dishes to choose from. The ones I tried were tasty, and not too spicy. Kulfi was available for dessert. Recommend.

The food is a mix of regional Indian cuisines with a lilt towards Southern Indian food. The buffet on Sundays is excellent. They also tend to show cricket on a big screen in the background if India is playing or there's a good game on. The drinks are also good. The staff are generally friendly & helpful, although scarce at... More

The lunch buffet is the go. Fabulous selection of beautifully crafted dishes. Great atmosphere. We went last Sunday .... And they had the Australia vs India one day cricket match on a large screen in a corner of the Resturant. I thought that was a great touch. Lots of Indian families and friends enjoying the food.

Description
Ganesha ek Sanskriti started its first restaurant in June 2003 in BRI, Semanggi, Jakarta. Setup in a fort like structure, it brought an ethnic Indian atmosphere to Jakarta apart from its firm commitment to serve authentic Indian food for the culinary enthusiasts in town. Ek Sanskriti stands for ‘a culture’ and the co-founder and President Director of Ganehsa, Mrs. Shilpa Dave believes that food is an integral part of culture. Her aim has been to bring the most authentic and original taste of Indian food to Indonesia and wherever else Ganesha operates. A dietician by profession, Mrs. Shilpa Dave pays special attention to the quality of food and balancing the taste with healthy inputs and hygiene into the dishes served.

Ganesha has since expanded into Kemang in Jakarta, operates in the premises of Sheraton in Jogjakarta, Dallas in USA and also in Ubud Bali. Ganesha Ek Sanskriti Kemang is located at the Second floor of Kemang Square building, Jalan Kemang Raya no.5, just near the traffic light heading to Prapanca. The restaurant is well laid out, and the ambiance will make you feel as you are dinning in one of the finest Indian restaurants in New Delhi.

Ganesha offers a wide variety of North Indian curry and tandoori foods with a selection of non-vegetarian and vegetarian items cooked by highly experienced chefs from North of India. Ganesha’s recommended non-vegetarian dishes include (starters) chicken tikka (bone-less pieces of grilled chicken), seekh kebab (bone-less mutton kebab), shami kebabs (mutton kebab with lentil), tandoori jhingha (prawn kebab) and (main course items) butter chicken , rogan josh (spicy mutton curry), amtritsari macchi (fried fish), prawn curry; Ganesha’s recommended vegetarian dishes include (starters) samosa (potato crispy patty), paneer tikka (cottage cheese kebab) and dal (lentils), variety of paneer preparations (vegetables with cottage cheese) and fresh vegetable preparations. The cottage cheese is made fresh in the kitchen every day without any preservatives. Our chefs will provide you with freshly baked naans or rotis (breads) all from the open kitchen. Ganesha also serves Authentic South Indian food.

We are proud to make special sweets (Indian metahi). Our Chef comes from Jodhpur he has an experty in making the most delightful sweets for all occasions to name a few Boondi ladoo, Kaju burfi, kaju roll, Rasmali, Gulab Jamun, Jaleebi ,badam appel etc

An Indian meal is incomplete without some sweets and Ganesha offers a variety of sweets, the famous gulab jamun (sweet dumplings made of milk and dry fruits), rasmalai (sweet dumplings soaked in milk prepared with dry fruit and saffron) and jaleebi (fried sweet item).
