Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Staying at an air b and b we had been recommended to get a meal from here. We called in the order and it arrived within half an hour the food was piping hot and I have to say was one of the best meals...I’ve had, the prawn biriyani was amazing the prawns were huge and the peshwari man one of the best I’ve had. I’ve your in Carnoustie this is a must go to place or have a takeaway was superb.More

Ganges has been our favourite for years. When you good your great. When you’re not your shoddy. I have lost count the number of times your takeaway has been below standard. Too often you forget to include Mixed Onion and Sauces, even the starter. Tonight...no mixed onion or sauces. Pakora and chips cold. For £26 plus I expect what we order. If we pick up we always check contents. How hard can it be to check when leaving kitchen. As mentioned before sort it out.More

We had an amazing family meal this evening. The food was probably the best we've ever had and the service was superb! We had the mixed starter, prawn puri and lamb chops as starters. The rogan josh main stood out for us. The portions are...huge so bear this in mind when ordering!More

Had a fab Sunday dinner, nicely attentive staff and manager. The menu had the classics as well as many other different styles. The food and drink prices were very fair. Unfortunately it is a wee bit off the main road, albeit in the middle of...the town.More

We had a beautiful dinner at the Ganges! The food was delicious and the service was 5 star. My husband ordered the Vindaloo and was very happy. The other vindaloos he has had were not as spicy and as good as this one! We will...definitely be back. The best authentic Indian food in the UK and USA we’ve had in 20 years! Thank you!More

My husband and I went here for dinner after a friend recommended it and we will definitely be back. Food was amazing. We both had starters and mains and shared a naan bread. All the food was delicious and we were very full afterwards. Staff...were lovely and very attentive. We went on a Tuesday night and it was very busy with a lot of take aways going out but service was still very good. Having had it recommended to us we will be recommending to others.More

Wonderful food, great service and a really nice buzz around the tables. Staff were very attentive. I'd easily travel to Ganfes bypassing lots of other restaurants.

What a shame. This place was recommended to me and I can see many glowing reviews, so maybe I was just unlucky but the main dish i had simply was not what it said on the menu and clearly whoever was cooking it didn't really...know what it was meant to be! Green herb chicken is not common and so it was great to find it on the menu...and the description was just what I would expect: coriander, mint, methi, garlic, ginger, not really hot at all but punchy with herbs and a "touch" of yogurt. However what i got was sickly sweet and cloying extremely "creamy" korma with some coriander in it. I did query it and the waiter clearly was not at all familiar with the dish so asked what I woudl like instead..I said I'd like the dish on the menu and so it was taken away and came back with a bit more coriander, a hint of mint, huge amount of spring onion and far too much chilli! So it was virtually indedibly hot. In the end I quietly said that it was not at all acceptable and I couldn't eat it...but they still tried, initially, to charge for it all. I simply said that I would pay for half of the main course only and so the bill was taken away and changed and in the end they knocked it all off the bill. And it is a shame because the staff were actually very nice and trying to be helpful, plus the naan bread was excellent (which I made sure to tell them!) but the fact that no-one seemed to recognise that the dish was a complete disaster does ring alarm bells about what is going on in the kitchen, and this is not a cheap restaurant...More
