Ganapati Restaurant reviews

By S.

Ganapati makes a trip to Peckham a very good idea indeed! My sister lives over there so it's easy for me but I think she'll be getting quite a few more visits now I've discovered this little gem. The food is sensational and the staff even remembered my name when I returned which scored big brownie points with me! If you haven't tried Ganapati yet, do.

Used to be great but went back recently and the food had really gone down hill with my chicken being very over cooked. Staff and atmosphere still great though.

By Sophie M.

This restaurant is fantastic. Great atmosphere, funky decor, fab staff, but most importantly the food is excellent, authentic and generous.

Beautiful flavours and a great menu.The chocolate chilli cake for dessert is to die for.I don't know who 'Indian Restaurant Critique' is - but they are misguided.

This is authentic South Indian cooking - and I am looking forward to going back and sharing this find with others...Try it for yourself. You will not be disappointed.


I would strongly suggest trying a proper Indian restaurant as your review of Ganapati Restaurant is too generous


I went to this restaurant as the name sounded very Indian. But to my surprise, they have the most annoying habit of asking their guest to leave even though they haven't finishsed their meal. To add to that, the customer service is appauling.

The waitress needs to learn how to smile. They think its the customers' honour to eat in their restaurant. The average price of the dishes are extremely expensive for the quality and quantity of food served.

I saw no Indian eating in that restaurant which made me think that they cannot be serving proper Indian food. I would never go there and would not recommend anyone either. Trust me, totally worthless even trying once.Indian Restaurant Critique

Award-winning South Indian restaurant tucked away in a quiet nook of Peckham. Looking for a chicken tikka masala? Take your business elsewhere.

The Venue
A converted corner house in up and coming SE15, Ganapati offers delicious food in a homey setting. Bench-style seating and an unpretentious mix of Indian photo displays and home-made decor add to the ambience.

The Atmosphere
The relaxed and informal cafe feel of Ganapati matches the decor of the venue. It's perfect for that chilled out lunchtime snack.

The Food
The menu is compact, unfussy and filled with superb Keralan dishes. Catering as much for the midday eater as the evening dining crowd, Ganapati offers reasonably priced lunchtime thalis with a good mix of curries and street snacks. The food comes into its own in the a la carte menu, however. The average curry house fan will probably only recognise the lamb korma on the menu. Here the traditional gloopy favourite is transformed into a wholesome fragrant curry with none of the usual cream and almond overdose. The chennai kozhi curry made with a boned chicken thigh is beautifully hot and sour. More surprises abound with the beetroot pachadi, a meaty fiery chutney made with fresh beetroot that goes down perfectly with a dash of coconut rice. The main meals come in at a slightly higher than expected at just about a tenner, but the extra couple of quid is worth it.

The Drink
Sweet refreshing lassis vie for favouritism amongst a massive selection of beers from the local Greenwich breweries.

The Last Word
The best Indian food in South London? Ganapati very well could be a contender for the crown.
