I'm an Indian food lover from way back. Having been to India, and eaten Indian food for at least 30 years, I feel I am well suited for an Indian review. So all I can say is OMG! Delicious, delicious, delicious!

The food has gone of a bit in the 25 years it has been operating. My wife and I still enjoy the takeaway but as with many restaurants, to keep the prices relatively the same, the amount of meat in all of the dishes has been noticeably reduced. It is a very small restaurant and the tables are much too... More

Ginger Garlic is a great authentic Indian restaurant located in Eltham. The menu is comprehensive and the dishes are always good. The service is excellent and in summer dinning on the terrace is a great experience.

What rude service. Order rice for one & you get two serves ... & pay for it. Similarly with the breads They seek to load up the table with mountains of food you cannot eat ... but pay for of course. There is something slimy & servile about the owners...

There is a very large outside covered padio which is very popular. Some customers bring their own tables and chairs on a Saturday evening since the outside area is... More

Lovely food, great service and lovely staff, the outside seating is not the most picturesque, but the food made up for it. The restaurant inside looked very nice.
