Upon delivery we were told they had no popadoms left, and therefore refunded the £4 for them. What kind of Indian restaurant runs out of popadoms at 7.30pm on a weekend?! When opening the bags of food we found the pickles etc were in there & it turned out we had been charged for them even though we had nothing... More

Not sure I've eaten here since they were the (in)famous Indian Curry Cottage. This was a delivery takeaway, with a set meal for two ordered. Delivery was prompt, the mixed meat biryani was aromatic but the sauce lacked punch. The chicken tikka masala was better than many i've had, the extra herbs adding more flavour.

My boyfriend & I love mixed grills, we saw someone share Ganges on Facebook. We bought the Ganges special mixed grill including rice & sauce, some naans & starters as a takeaway. The mixed grill special was only £6.95! AMAZING value, it was the nicest mixed grill we've ever had, the meat was beautiful, plenty of flavour, filling, more than... More

I regularly eat at Ganges in Sale, the food is authentic, nicely presented, plenty of it, its always hot and the staff can't do enough for you. If you haven't been yet and you live in the area, give it a try you won't be disappointed.

We came here early March with a large group of friends for a birthday meal. The food was amazing, service was brilliant and the staff are very friendly. We had a brilliant night and we've already been back for a takeaway , and that was gorgeous too.
