I used to buy garlic and cheese naan from them when the old chef was working there since they open their shop, every time it was very nice, but since they changed the chef the food is not as good as before, I ordered garlic and cheese naan with extra cheese just now, but the one I received got no...

I went to the hobart shop and asked the woman for two curries and rice in one container and my friend asked for one curry and rice in one container plus naan bread (this is what we were asked to order for other friends). We have never been there before so we were not sure how we were supposed to... More

Very average Indian cuisine. Not enjoyable at the best and not one to return to in a hurry. Disappointing

Average 'watery', so called 'hot' curry. Typical of restaurants in Australia with the heat but have had nicer sauce than this. Quiet here at 3pm on a Saturday afternoon. Clean. Tidy. Nice staff.

This is our second visit to Ganges. We ordered fish curry, potato curry, goat and chicken with rice and naan bread. All dishes have the same stock base so flavours didn't vary much. The quality of meat was good and serving sizes ok but missing flavour. Staff were friendly and the place was clean.

This place offers good and affordable Indian food within the Elizabeth Mall precinct. Much, much better than the pre-packed Indian curries sold at Woolworths a few steps away from this place.

Very good location if you are in a hurry and have no idea what to eat for lunch. I recommend Tandoori Chicken, Cheese Garlic Naan.

The taste is okay. The Naan is dry and rubbery. but the worst thing is the tiny tiny serving size. I have never seen such a small serve of curry in my life. For $10 it was a total rip off.

Well prepared and great flavours - particularly like their takeaway Tandoori Platter. My only criticism is that on two occasions I have been served oxidized wine. $8.50 a glass for a budget wine is probably a little over the top, given the style of the restaurant. Well worth a visit for the food
