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).

“Very nice food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

I've been to the Ganesha ek sanskriti in Kemang and really enjoyed the food.
It's the most authentic Indian I've had in Jakarta. The restaurant is a bit hidden (on the second floor of a building with other restaurants) which might explain why they don't have too many guests, at least during the week. It is definitely worth trying!

Everything about the place is impressive, the decor, ambiance like a rajastan haveli, finger licking food and wonderful service. You will be surprised to see local Indonesian waiters speaking chaste Hindi. I am impressed

“Good ambience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

We loved the feel of the restaurant. It's a great place to have a dinner with friends and family.

The brunch buffet on Sundays is supposed to be especially good with a variety of dishes on offer. We haven't had a chance to try it though.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

We reached at 10.10 and though it was almost closed they served us food. Chef Rawat is from India and he gave us large helping. Due to Ramadan they were not publicly serving alcohol and I had unique experience of having beer served from Tea Pot into cup and saucer.
