After disappointing meals with other local Indians we are now Ganges converts. It’s a ‘traditional’ curry house, no bells and whistles, just really great food - every time - and always a reasonable price. Always quite busy and buzzy in there. Would highly recommend for...More

Nice meal, well presented. Top marks, and would go again. We ordered a range of dishes and all were well cooked and seasoned. A lovely meal, well done.

We were staying in the area on holiday and needed our regular curry fix. The service was quick and efficient and the food generous and very tasty! Highly recommended

Although it was a bit pricier than I was expecting as I'm a student, the food was really good and the portion sizes were bigger than similar restaurants I've been to. I usually find the main dishes too small but here they were so big...More
