Food not worth the wait! We booked for 7.30pm and arrived on time. This was to be a treat for my 94 yo mother and we had alerted the restaurant when booking. On arrival we fought our way through a large group to our table. We then waited 20 minutes before the waiter took our order and then a further... More

Visited as a family of 4 last Saturday. Ordered various dishes and happy with them all. However the service was not at all good. We were under no illusions as to what the staff thought of us - get them fed and out; re-lay the table for the next customers! There were no greetings; enquiries as to whether we enjoyed... More

The takeaways are always hot, very tasty and served with a smile. To eat in is great too. I've never had a disappointing meal here.

This restaurant used to be OK, also does take aways, but of late is seems have lost the plot a little, all the food tastes the same as though cooked in one pot and some dishes which one would expect to be mild are too hot, I think they need to re-examine their cooking methods and perhaps change the cook.

The Ganges is a good example of a curry house. It does all the standard curries you would expect plus some interesting chefs specials. Staff are helpful and friendly. Beer is good and cold.
