Nothing wrong really - but overall the restaurant has a 'run down' feel. Does quite alot of take-away - perhaps they are concentraing on that.

Not impressed with this restaurant. Not surprised it was closed down.please note this restaurant no longer exsists. There is a police notice on the boarded up building. Never quite understood how it kept going so long .

This used to be a good restaurant, with some of the best Bangladesh based cooking in the Belfast area but earlier this year things went really downhill as financial troubles hit, food quality crashed and a few months ago the doors closed for good.

Being from Belfast, I have always been happy to travel to Holywood to get a takeaway from The Ganges, my favourite Indian restaurant. However, on this particular occasion the food was not up to its usual great standards. The rice was dry and clumpy. The sauce dried up very quickly.

Had a great meal for a friend's birthday, the food was of the highest quality and the staff and chef so accommodating. Even topped it off with a complimentary shot. Highly recommended

This place is reliably brilliant. We always order too much and really only need one main between two people with a few poppadoms and pickles. It's really tasty and my favourite place to eat in the evening.

Nice intimate restaurant,clean and tidy. It's an Indian styled restaurant. Food was reasonable, however use of food colouring and sugar in dishes evident.

I usually get take away from here, The portions are huge! To the point I end up feeding another house as well as my own. The staff are really pleasant & are really welcoming. The food is freshly made, I couldn't recommend this Indian enough! Has my 5*s & is deff a favourite in our household!
