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).

You will forget you are in Jakarta once you enter to this place ! Very fine spread of Indian buffet starting covering starters, main course and desserts. Hot aloo tiki, momos and tava subji were also an added attraction. Really liked the kachori with aloo curry.. Hot Jalebis were mouth watering. Interesting place if you have a big appetite and looking for good Indian food in Jakarta.

The 1st thing which will strike to you about this resturent is the ambience. Exquisite Interiors, nicely designed walls and furniture absolute Royal Indian Feel.

Menu is crisp and decent........found prices to be little on a higher side but its justifiable.

Food was excellent, taste, presentation and flavour. Portion is OK too.

If you are looking for true "Royal Indian Experieince" in Kemang.

Its delicious Indian food, with a good spread, though very rich.
As a vegetarian in Jakarta, it is a concern for me most of the time, to get vegetarian food at all and an Indian place is the best option.

Had a dinner at Ganesha. Very decent Indian hotel...slightly over-price I felt....but service is good and ambience is nice. Staff are mostly Indonesia...so do not expect to get by with local Indian language...;)...English or Bahasa is the way to go. Enjoy !

Visited Ganesha in BRI building couple of times when i was in Jakarta in october. I live in Dallas which has its own share of Indian restaurants and I can say without equivocation that this beats every Dallas indian restaurant hands down. The chicken tikka just melts in your mouth and teh curries are incredibly tasty. Also another thing, the meat tastes much better, the chicken is not the hormone infested - cardboard-like kind you get in the USA. The drumstick is the size of a american chicken wing drumette. And oh-so tasty. The buffet has a chat corner, variety of desserts as well.
Only issue is it can get crowded on weekends.
It is on my list for my next visit.
