The location is good and is spacious.Paid parking is just next door in a multi storey car park. We had the crispy crepes called dosas that were very good. Stick to the conventional masala dosas though, and not the variants like chicken tikka masala dosas. The food was above average, but the service was pretty slow, even when the restaurant... More

We visited Dancing Ganesha last night. We're not very experienced with eating Indian food; the staff was awesome about answering our questions and helping us pick food that matched our taste buds. The restaurant is in a relatively good location (closer to the downtown branch of St. Thomas University, rather than by Target Field, which we had anticipated); food values... More

I like the food here and they have a nice IPA on tap but...they serve it in small 12 oz glasses. They used to serve it in pint glasses. Now they only serve the water in the pint glasses.

The food selection was good. Cocktails were lacking a bit. Restaurant was full but did not need a resy. Decent food for a decent price.

We went on a weekend lunch followed by dinner the same week. The lunch buffet is obviously not a great excitement for veggies. Dinner had better options. Reasonably good service and well prepared dishes. The starters were nice. Ample parking all around. The restaurant is a convenient place for dinner/lunch meetings as it is in the heart of the city.

Usually if we go to any Indian restaurant in US, we find no matter how spicy you ask, you will never get Indian hot spicy food, but this place is an exception. Just love this place and their Govan & South dishes. I would love to go hear again.

Went with a friend who had a Living Social coupon, which meant we had to order off the menu and not go through the buffet. Both of us have lived abroad and traveled to India and Pakistan. We ordered 2 dishes with the intention of sharing so we both try them. 1) They got the order wrong. 2) The heat... More

The food and the service are excellent here. I have eaten here before, and I'm never disappointed! Try the Kinky Cosmopolitan! Yummy!

Went to this restaurant to celebrate my birthday and had a very good meal, and for the cuisine it was a pretty good deal. The decor and ambience was very nice and the food was pretty good.
