I've been getting takeaways from here for years; always very good, so finally got to try it in house. The decor is nice enough and clean. Very clean. To be honest, this point is a almost a negative. Hoovering while we ate (it makes customers feel rushed and removes any atmosphere) and endless cleaning of neighbouring tables. This is normally... More

We used to eat here in our courting days 43 years ago but it had lost its persona & became to 'Cattle Markety' However; We went to Celebrate our 42nd Wedding Anniversary Yesterday 11th January & We cannot fault the place. Thankyou Ganges!

Upon delivery we were told they had no popadoms left, and therefore refunded the £4 for them. What kind of Indian restaurant runs out of popadoms at 7.30pm on a weekend?! When opening the bags of food we found the pickles etc were in there & it turned out we had been charged for them even though we had nothing... More

Main course partner had balti lamb which he said was ok. I had lamb tikka shafia and it was awful. We also waited ages to be served the food. We had beers which... More

Not sure I've eaten here since they were the (in)famous Indian Curry Cottage. This was a delivery takeaway, with a set meal for two ordered. Delivery was prompt, the mixed meat biryani was aromatic but the sauce lacked punch. The chicken tikka masala was better than many i've had, the extra herbs adding more flavour. Popadums tasted a little off...oil... More

When we arrived there was just one member of staff after ordering the drinks it took nearly 20 mins to get them 20 mins later they took the food order! We then waited... More

My boyfriend & I love mixed grills, we saw someone share Ganges on Facebook. We bought the Ganges special mixed grill including rice & sauce, some naans & starters as a takeaway. The mixed grill special was only £6.95! AMAZING value, it was the nicest mixed grill we've ever had, the meat was beautiful, plenty of flavour, filling, more than... More

I regularly eat at Ganges in Sale, the food is authentic, nicely presented, plenty of it, its always hot and the staff can't do enough for you. If you haven't been yet and you live in the area, give it a try you won't be disappointed.
