“Good quality London Indian food and excellent value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

Ganges is not "new indian" but serves good quality, well-spiced London-style Indian food. I took three visitors and everyone enjoyed lamb and chicken dishes and excellent vegetarian sides. The tables are well spaced in a pleasant room (the basement seems to be mainly used for groups and is rather dull). Indian beers are served well chilled and house wine by the glass is fine and well-priced. Service - which in the past has been rather disinterested - was good and we enjoyed the evening and all judged it to be excellent value. Back on our list of places to go regularly.

“Very good Indian in Paddington area.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

This is an old school Indian restaurant right on Praed Street. Food is excellent and very fresh. The Staff are very helpful and attentive. Good menu selection. The restaurant is very proper English. We have eaten here for many years. We ate here twice on this trip to London.

“Average Food, Terrible Service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

This place advertised a buffet on Sunday for around 8 pounds. I should have walked out when I saw I was the only person in the restaurant. The "buffet" was in the basement and was four trays of food. The food wasn't bad. Chicken tikka masala was fine but nothing special and the lamb was a bit tough. The naan was really good, much more "doughy" than usual which I enjoyed. The waiter was awful. I had to ask for a table when I walked into the restaurant. He appeared to muster the last strength in his body to get up and give me a table. He never returned after he got the naan. Never got a refill. Recommend skipping this place.
