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.

We had a table for 10 for two special birthdays. Firstly the welcome was fantastic as we all arrived at different times. Well looked after in the bar. All seated on a table with balloons and they accommodated a special birthday cake. The food was...both hot and delicious! The whole of our group loved the starters and mains. Taste and presentation was first class. As a family party we were not in anyway rushed and the all the staff went out to make sure the evening was just perfect. The whole family all said they would want to come back again here. So we really couldn’t recommend this restaurant enough. Food 5* Temperature 5* Service and bar requirements 5* Hospitality 5* Cleanliness 5* We have, as a local couple, eaten in all the Indian restaurants in and around Towcester and this one really stands out! The staff deserves all the praise!More

We have eaten at Ganges many times now and always experience a warm welcome from friendly staff, excellent service and a high standard of food giving good value for money. The owners have made the best of unpromising surroundings in a former pub. Having a...car park is a bunus. We travel specially from Northampton and it's always worth the trip.More

Last minute booking, food was fantastic. The spice level was actually the spice level which is rare ! Everything came out warm and freshly prepared. Mixed started was really nice, popadoms were plentiful and as expected and the main course (Jalfrezi) was incredibly tasty and...nice and spicy. Staff were attentive, drinks were offered as soon as needed, was given an option for a gap between starters and main - just all round great service and fantastic food.More

We decided a curry night was in order so we booked into The Ganges Restaurant in Towcester. The restaurant is quite large and for a Thursday night it was very busy so booking is recommended. Menu is excellent and the presentation of the food served...looks great and the flavours are just superb, all three of us really enjoyed our dining experience. The staff are just excellent. Thank you 🙏 we will be back again & again !More

I ordered a takeaway from the Ganges on a Friday evening at 7.12pm asking that it be delivered asap. Whilst I accept that Friday evenings are busy one hour later I called went through my order and address and was assured that it was out...for delivery and would be with me within 20 minutes. Another hour passed and still no delivery so I called again only to be told that that it was on the hot plate and would be delivered in 5 minutes. Very odd given that I was advised previously that is was out for delivery ! Finally after a further phone call stating that it had been delivered to the wrong address. All in all very unsatisfactory we won’t be using them again and if you do order be prepared for a long wait and a multitude of contradictory excuses for late delivery.More

The onion bhajis were like tennis balls with no flavour whatsoever. My main course was very bland. I did not enjoy the meal at all this evening will not be returning to the Ganges again.
