Make sure you are going to old Ganesh. It is amazing and probably one of if not the best place around Iwakuni. Wash down that curry and naan with a kingfisher or other beer they offer. If you haven't been here you are missing out!

This was my second time visiting Ganeshu and it did not disappoint. Flavorful and delightful are the dishes that you can order as a meal set or a la carte. Depending on the set it comes with naan, one or two curries and tandoori chicken and a drink. You get to choose from a variety of naan and curry flavors... More

Reasonably priced, generous portions of delicious Indian curry. Kid's plates available with large portions as well. You only need 1 nan for 2 people but you'll want more to try the different flavors! A parking voucher can be obtained at checkout and the service was always kind and quick. Don't miss a trip to Ganesh!

I found this restaurant in the main street just out of the Iwakuni station, a 5 min walk (maybe they have moved from the originally reported map?). I went for lunch and the nam is a big size one. They have 3 types of set menus (750 to 1,000yen at lunch time) as well as individual plates. It was a... More

This was my favorite Indian Restaurant in Iwakuni. They sell individual dishes or platters for 2+ people. The guys are from India and speak English very well. I'd go here at least once a month and would fly back just for their food!

When I was stationed in Japan, we ate here all of the time. My favorite was and still is the soft but crispy garlic naan and chicken saag, spicy level 6 or 7. We're back again visiting and the food is still amazing! They have cleaned up the place a bit too, and I'm sad we won't have enough time... More
