Ganesha can be found on Thornhill Road, just down the road from Sutton Park in a quaint, lovely area of the city.
Our meal was very enjoyable. The staff were great even though the service was slow. We kept having to ask for attention. The only very big concern was after the meal when we received the bill we were told that they could only accept cash which could have been very embarrassing as I often don't carry large amounts of cash and sometimes only a credit card(s). They did say that we could get cash from the nearby ATM but as I pointed out to them had I only got credit cards with me that would have cost me more money as I don't believe, other than in an emergency, one should ever draw cash using a credit card, just look at the appalling charges the banks make on them. They though offer us a free drink or coffee as an apology.
It was out of their control but the heating had broke on one of the coldest nights of the year which made it a bit miserable. Service was not good as we had to ask to order food after nearly an hour. The food itself was ok although had to send back a dish the was over salted. Not sure wil go back.
Lovely decor inside. Feels like fine dining. Food was nothing special. Quite expensive. Cocktails were fantastic. No spice to the food at all even when they said they would make it how we like it.
