Walked in at 6:30, friendly welcome, no problem getting a table, but it was much busier when we left about 8:30.

Drinks and poppadoms were served promptly, we were not rushed into ordering. Good food - having lived in Bradford (W Yorks) for many years, we know a good curry when we eat one, and both of ours were excellent. Plenty of meat in both dishes. Mine was the nicest rogan josh I've eaten outside W Yorkshire.

One minor letdown was the Peshwari naan, which was sweet but tiny (Akbar's in Bradford makes them huge, and serves them hanging from a big stand), and obviously mass-produced (a perfect circle, no almonds or raisins). That said, the Ganges does Bengali food, so maybe we shouldn't have asked for something from Pakistan!

We immediately recommended the place to our daughter and a friend, we were so impressed, and we'll go back next time we stay over in Tiverton.

Invited there last night , usually really good food & service BUT...?
Change of ownership? Chef? Who knows but frankly it was awful
Packed in like sardines, waited ages to get drinks & menu, ordered 11/2 hours later food finally came, this was after later arrivals got served. Also choked with chilli vapour!
Jal Farezi very poor large lumps of chicken with onion & a tomato sauce, not up to usual or expected standard. Dahl tarka tasteless etc etc. Seriously let down, wont be going back.

A cold evening and a warm curry awaited us. Service is fantastic and food is just sublime. We usually have a takeaway but chose to eat in with friends. They catered happily for our 4 year old friend and his parents nothing was too much trouble. We left with full bellies and happy hearts.
