The takeaways are always hot, very tasty and served with a smile. To eat in is great too. I've never had a disappointing meal here.

This restaurant used to be OK, also does take aways, but of late is seems have lost the plot a little, all the food tastes the same as though cooked in one pot and some dishes which one would expect to be mild are too hot, I think they need to re-examine their cooking methods and perhaps change the cook.

The Ganges is a good example of a curry house. It does all the standard curries you would expect plus some interesting chefs specials. Staff are helpful and friendly. Beer is good and cold.

The staff were very friendly and helpful and the menu offers a good selection. The lighting is really good. it is not the harsh bright lights some restaurants seem to favour.

Had a meal here on a one night visit to Tavistock. The dish ( a madras) could easily have passed as a vindaloo. Infact I have had vindaloos milder than my dish at the Ganges. In saying that, the meal was tasty and the service was very good indeed. If I ever find myself in Tavistock again, I would revisit... More

We keep hoping this place will get better, but although the service is friendly and efficient, the food is very mediocre. All the usual things on the menu, with no fresh new flavours or enticing aromas of sizzling hot spices or herbs. Even the ponir is actually cheddar - can't imagine why they don't make their own, it only takes... More
