I was recommended Ganesha by a friend after asking for suggestions of a curry house to take my dad when he visited me in Bristol! And it did not disappoint! Really helpful friendly staff and one of the best curries I have had! Would highly recommend the peacock cider as well!

I go to Ganesha regularly for takeaways, the food is always amazing and service is friendly, I haven't reviewed for 2 years but probably been here 25 times in that time and never had bad food!
