The food here is pretty great. This is the only place I have been able to find a true Butter Chicken dish. Most places have too thin of sauce, and likely don't splurge for the heavy cream when making, but use milk because it is cheaper. To me there is a difference when cooking, the quality of food is there. There garlic naan has actual garlic chunks too, it's not garlic salt and oil.

We went to have dinner with family. Chicken Briyani was terrible. Not at all like Briyani but like Masala rice with chicken chunks in it..

The quality of food has deteriorated over the past few years. Looks like the cooks changed.

Price is not worth the kind of food they serve.

Not going there anymore.

As someone who has spent a lot of time in India, I'm often disappointed with Indian food in America. Dancing Ganesha exceeded my expectations! Enjoyed the environment, our server gave helpful suggestions, and the food came fast and was delicious! Pretty sure I left with a food baby cuz I ate so much but still carried home leftovers. Definitely recommend this restaurant to any Indian food lovers, and if you're not one already you will be after eating here.

My husband and I had dinner here during a recent visit to Minneapolis. It is by far a 5-star restaurant. The food was exceptional. My husband ordered the lamb, and I had the curried scallops. Vegetarian options were abundant. The serving size for each entree was plentiful, and I had enough for lunch the next day.

Our server was kind enough to offer menu suggestions, and even shared how we might want to make our food selections before a larger party placed their orders.

The wait time for our food was short, and the food was hot. We dined here using a Groupon, but would've paid full price because the entrees weren't expensive.

We would definitely return here on our next Minneapolis trip.

Our family has now been this restaurant several times over the last few months. Honesly the BEST Indian restaurant we have found in the area.
The food is amazing! They will also actually make the food hot for you if ask it to be prepared hot and spicey.
We always have the samosas and usually the pokoras for appetizers, Yummy!
The dishes we have tired include the tikka masalas and vindinloos which are amazing.
The naan is also very good.
The atmosphere here is nice and the service is good.
No liquor license but that would not deter us and should not deter anyone as the food is so amazing.
We go back here frequently.
Highly recommended.
