The restaurant is nice enough inside, comfortable seats, and looks like it has been recently refurbished. But it's the food that really matters and that was average, nothing really to complain about, but equally nothing to compliment. The starter and main course were both ok,...More

Had eaten here a long time ago and living on Gloucester Road so many Indians to choose from so had not been back. Popped in on a Sunday evening and lovely atmosphere. Food was great value and staff were really nice. Would certainly go back...More

Great fresh flavours, good sized portions, ready at agreed collection time. Friendly, courteous service and reasonable price with the best onion bajis I've encountered in a long while. I just wish this restaurant/takeaway could be closer to home.

Visited here with friends. Traditional curry house decor, was hardly anyone else in the restaurant - was 9pm when we arrived. Food was better than expected - plenty of choice with some unusual dishes. Service was a little lacking in enthusiasm!

Small Indian restaurant on Gloucester Road, not the only one in the area, but well worth a visit. Looks like it has been nicely renovated, friendly service. Food is excellent, really good taste, good value. Give it a try next time you fancy a curry!

At one level a traditional indian but with a important and interesting differences on the menu. Chicken Charga exquisite. Reasonable and friendly but heading for the time when a makeover is inevitable- feels a bit dated

Had a Takeaway from the Ganges. A chicken vindaloo mushroom rice poppadoms dips and onion bhagi. One of the best curries I've had in Bristol, and I've had a lot! The place is nice inside but it was 6.30pm and no one was dining. Id...More
