“Phenomenal curry!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014 via mobile

I'm a huge fan of Indian food and have tried curries in many different countries and am quite critical. This is one of the best I've ever had anywhere! A little bit more expensive than some other local restaurants but it is worth every penny! Only regret was finding this spot on my last night... Absolutely world class.

“Beyond satisfying”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

I would consider myself a picky Indian food water and this restaurant was flawless. The service was fantastic and the food was even better. Went back for 3 dinners during our 5 day stay and wish we could go back more. If you like vegetarian dishes, go for the mattar paneer and Baigon paneer. Also very reasonably priced

“Best Dahl in the world!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

We are backpackers travelling on a budget, but couldn't resist treating ourselves to the gorgeous food here. As vegetarians we think the food here is even better than some we have when staying with families in India! Highly recommend the delicious (fairly thick and gingery) Tarka Dahl (69,000) the rich Ganesha Markhani Dahl, and the huge butter nan. Portions are generous and two curries, one rice, and one nan bread is enough to happily full up two people.
We went to some of the other Ganesh restaurants in Saigon, Nha Trang and Hue, but for us this one is the best and most authentic for it's interior (no fancy furnishings or freezing air con), smiley friendly personal service, and food that tastes fresh and homemade : )

“vegetarians oasis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

My husband and I are vegetarians. Travelling in Vietnam where seafood and meats are predominant, we had to constantly request or explain in sign language....was getting a bit tedious after a while until we came to Ganesh restaurant.
finding an Indian restaurant and not having to worry about the food was comforting.
Now coming to the food itself, it was authentic food, not something made up for whats assumed as western taste, Dont miss the Ganesh special naan....we went back the next day for it. The portions are big and generous. masala lassi was refreshing. has good vareity to choose from

“Tasty Indian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

We visited the Ganesh restaurants not only in Hoi An but in several places in Vietnam and the food was consistently delicious.

Our favourites were Lamb rogan josh and chicken madras. Would definitely visit again.
