Can't believe the place was almost empty on a Saturday evening, so much to recommend.. the staff were helpful, polite and friendly, the food was spot on - light and crisp poppadoms, really good pickles, very tasty mains with a good level of spice and no food colouring. Great range of vegetarian choices. And excellent value.

The exterior of the building could do with tidying but do not let this put you off! The poppadoms were the largest I have seen, very light and with a great choice of pickles. This is the first time I have tried dosa's and I highly recommend, light crispy and flavoursome. Whilst generic Indian dishes are available I tried one... More

Staff were very friendly here and the restaurant itself is nice but the food let it down. The sheek kebab starter was lukewarm and I think it may have been cooked previously then warmed up. Naans were nice but the mains were quite heavy on sauce and less on the constituent ingredients.

I was looking forward to eating here after reading the good reviews and walking past the restaurant many times, and chose to take a friend here when she was visiting Bristol. The guy who served us was very friendly but I was disappointed by the food. I really wanted it to be delicious and it just felt very average. The... More

We were travelling back home via Bristol from Cornwall and we decided to dine at Ganesha's and It was a great experience. With us being 4 families around 15 members they had no problems in serving the food. The food is authentic Indian and tasty. There was nothing we could complain about. I will revisit this place again.

I really like this place. the food is good and the service friendly. I come here wth friends and family quite often.They do a better selection than you find in most Indian restaurants, it's not just the usual 'British Indian' cooking, they have tasty South Indian food like dosas. If you live in south Bristol I definitely recommend coming here.

With a selection of dishes from all parts of India, the Ganesha menu takes you on a unique culinary journey, on which you���ll sample exciting food you may never have heard of and certainly won���t have tried here in Bristol, from handmade breads to appropriately spiced curried fish dishes. Combining efficiency and friendliness, Ganesha���s service is second to none while the simple d��cor of the dining room is focused on comfort and space, the furnishings contemporary and sleek with nods to the restaurant���s roots in Indian artworks including a statue of the revered elephant god himself situated behind the bar.
