The kitchen is the soul of a restaurant as it is of a home, providing warmth, nourishment and evocative smells. An air of expectancy surrounds the kitchen as the work of the day begins. It is a place of hard work, companionship and great rewards, and most importantly, it brings people together to feast on the results.
Ganapati is the south Indian name for the elephant-headed god Ganesh. He is the well-loved remover of obstacles, with a particular fondness for sweets.

There are some really good vegetarian curries here. I had a black bean and potatoe varient while my wife went for the green chilli and okra. Both very tasty as was the masala dosa that we started with, the mysterious orange sauce that came with it being particularly good!
It's a very cute and pleasant place...not like any venue that I have been to for a curry before.more
When people come to visit me and they want Indian food, I take them here. I've been back with my parents, various friends, my brother... the food and service are consistently good and Ganapati continues to be a real hidden gem in London's Southern-style Indian cuisine scene. Plus the intimate and stylish ambiance (and the fact it is a bit of an adventure to get there) make this an excellent...more
