Cliff

Make sure you come hungry — it’s hard not to stuff yourself here. Get a Tandoori dish if you want a free side of Naan bread. Oh, and if you think you can hack it, try the garlic soup for a cold winter evening appetizer. Lately we’ve been hitting Ganesha on holidays like Christmas and New Year’s.

Sarah

This is the very first restaurant I ever ate at after we moved to Germany, so I have an extra soft-spot for it. It’s fairly formal looking inside – starched tablecloths, lots of silver and gold statuary and a riot of color from the artfully draped saris hanging from the ceiling. But it all pales in comparison to the food. They always start you off with pappadums (light, crispy tortilla-like flatbread made of – I think – lentil flour) and dips. The menu is extensive and varied. Cliff has tried nearly all of the tandoori offerings. I have ordered from the vegetarian, chicken, lamb and biryani sections – there is also a generous selection of curries involving fish and duck. The staff is friendly (although occasionally indifferent) and the prices, while a little higher than what we usually look for, are a value for the quality of ingredients and expert preparation.

Dishes to try:
-Alu Gobi (vegetarian; potatoes and cauliflower in mild sauce)
-Mutton Nilgiri (mutton chunks in mild coconut milk and coriander sauce)
