Are you kidding me? This isnt an Indian restaurant! The food is terrible and overpriced.. They fry their Tandoori Chicken!!! Service is pathetic.. Only thing good is the location.. better as a bar than Indian cuisine

Have been twice there.

First time was Valentines Day. Booked table there well in advance. When arrived - there was no place available. Had to wait long time and had hard and unpleasant discussion with the guy in charge.

Second time we were seating outdoor at the lake side - but hordes of insects didn't let us eat the food and we had to relocate inside (must be something special there - in other lakeside restaurants didn't have such problem).

This second time the staff was more nice and helpful.

Decoration inside (especially second floor) is lovely and making very nice atmosphere. Food between good and very good + quite wide variety.

So if staff (especially management) would treat customers with more respect - could recommend this place.

I have eaten here couple of times this year. It's nice place, tasty and good quality food. Nothing too fancy about it and not the cheapest place around. Beer selection is a big plus. If you're looking for Indian food in this end of SIP, this is a very good choice.

We live very close by in Suzhou and decided to give this place a go. Having lived in India for several years, we have pretty high expectations for Indian food, and this just wasn't up to the level we are used to, especially for the price. You can get food that is miles above this for next to nothing in India at any hole-in-the-wall eatery.

In particular, I wasn't impressed with the speed of service or the organization here. The food took ages to arrive. The drinks came after the food, which should have taken only a few minutes to prepare and service. The naan and rice came much later on, well after our curries were on the table.

I suppose the atmosphere is nice enough being right on the lake and you can sit on the floor if you're able to get one of those tables, but if the food isn't up to the mark, everything else is irrelevant. I wouldn't return.

Make the trek all the way to Ganesh if for no other reason, just to enjoy the rich, tasty, spicy lamb and pumpkin curry. Some of the best I've ever had. The service is poor. The location is lovely, sitting lakeside.
