“Wow, what a place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

Wow, what a place
Went by chance into Ganesh. Just near it, about 5 same style BBQ stand restaurants, but Ganesh is always full, and people are standing outside for more of their shish-kabab.
It’s very small, most of the people using take-away. 3-4 tables inside. Meat is fresh, that’s the idea of a packed restaurant. few charcoal clay oven bbq are in charge of the great meat and Paratha.
Recommended – Mutton kabab, Chicken Tandoori, and fish! All served with fresh onions, lemon and mint sauce. Prices are very reasonable. Stuff are friendly.
Very important – 1st night, no stomach problems, 2nd night – no stomach problems, I’m going there tonight as well.

“Very Little Masalas but Very Tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2011

The way they cook they cook Tandoori chicken at Ganesh, few do in Delhi. Mostly Tandoori chichen in Delhi is coated with a lot of masalas, orange colour and oil or ghee. But at Ganesh it is very different. Almost no Masalas, no orange colour at all, very less fat; and what you get is superb Tandoori chicken. Tandoori Fish, and Tanddori Fish tikka are also as wonderful, as chichen. Dont get them packed. Eat them there only to get the best taste. For out door seatng, sit in your car, and you will be served promptly there.
