Ganapati Restaurant


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.

Hands down one of the best Talis I have ever had! Food is cooked fresh and the smell when you walk in the door is enough to make you want to order most of the menu! There is a great selection of both meat and vege dishes and I would encourage you to try going meat free - really the spices in the vegetarian dishes make up for the lack of meat. I promise! This is a slightly more casual dining...more

On a friend's recommendation I stopped in at Ganapati for lunch. The food was very good and freshly cooked without being too heavy or oily, portions were ample and the service was very friendly. Overall it was a great experience and I would recommend Ganapati to anyone.

Reserving the last star for next time I go when I remember to order my food spicy!more

This little place is a pretty popular place compare to its location, and I guess the lack of choices kinda leads you here.

We couldn't get a table, so I told the lady to give me a call if something is available, which of course - she didn't.

But good news everyone! just two blocks away they have a take away place, as everything is very crowded in little peckham, we found our selves over...more

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
