Ganesha Indian Cuisine
Nine years on, and it's still going strong; not only surviving a recession, but doubling in size! Mayur and his wife hail from Pune, which is one of the most popular Indian cities. Both are very keen to point out that the food they specialise in is very different from the standard bog style of cooking found in the most common Bangladeshi or Pakistani restaurants.
Dont go here. The service was below par. One of the staff did not even speak respectfully and did not want to serve. It's pretty pretty annoying. So items were cold
I have never had the experience of disrespectful treatment in a restaurant. They are extremely rude and arrogant
We had a table for 6 booked via open table at 10.30 on a Friday night. We arrived on time to be told they were closing. Despite showing my confirmation, we were turned away.
We enjoyed Ganesha. The dosas were excellent, and the service was so kind and attentive without being overwhelming. Each dish was well-prepared and we were surprised how much we enjoyed our visit at the end. It was such a peaceful, pleasant meal, and afterward we were off to discover a bit more of Bristol!
Not like a normal curry house. Very good quality food very good service
Had a very good meal at the Ganesha. The food was very tasty and good portions too. The restaurant was busy (being Valentines) but we had a very pleasant evening. I would return if in the area again
Being a Geordie I have been spoilt with Bangladeshi cuisine (huge Banglashi comminty up north) so it was exciting to try an Indian cuisine which was a little different to the norm.
The menu was explained to is with pride and insight and we were not disappointed with the food - it was very good. The Masala Dosa was delicious as was the lamb dish (mint and corriander) and the aubergine dish with peanut sauce.
We have already told our Bristolian friends that they must visit and we hope to be back soon!
I booked for a friend's birthday, based on previous reviews, and we were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and helpful, especially with menu choices, and the food was really good. We would definitely eat here again and recommend to others.
Food is fairly good, service is not the best, we would not return.
This is an excellent place if you want dishes that are not typically found on Indian restaurant menus. Beautiful, region-specific set of dishes, with a personal twist of the chef. Everything is cooked from scratch; all ingredients seem very fresh and of good quality (the lamb I had was succulent and melting in the mouth; the chicken my partner had was soft and flaky). Just the right amount of spice and hotness. Lots of special, surprisingly tasty dishes. The only drawback of the fresh/from-scratch cooking is that it takes a long time for food to arrive. But the waited gives you a nice warning and you're relaxed. Have a few drinks from a well stocked bar in the meantime!
Great food, good service. Great to find an Indian Restaurant that does traditional Indian food rather than the British version of Indian food! Tried things we had not had before, on recommendation of waiter, all were excellent!
The food and service were excellent - very helpful and attentive staff. I would recommend this restaurant highly - we had a most memorable experience. Many thanks to all concerned - we will be back.
A great meal with great service and advise, we will visit again.
Ganesha (Bedminster, Bristol) makes a really good change from your standard 'chicken tiki masala' Indian. The dishes seem more authentic (as well as very tasty) and the staff are more than happy to share their reccomendations.
This is some of the best Indian food I've ever eaten - I'd say it's up there with Myristica for the title of best Indian restaurant in Bristol. The waiter went out of his way to recommend authentic dishes rather than "standard" fare, and these were all good. My friends were vegetarian and they have a huge veg selection, which was another big plus. Excellent value too. I will definitely be back.
GOOD FOOD, GOOD EXTENSIVE MENU AND ATTENTIVE SERVICE WOULD RECOMMEND TO ANY INDIAN FOODIE
Food was great, very tasty, each dish had a unique flavour. Food was quite slow however, a place to enjoy a long meal rather than a quick bite to eat
Excellent Indian food, the best I have tasted in Bristol. In particular the chef's specials are recommended. Service is also good, friendly and attentive.
