Description
The Ganesha restaurant is in the heart of Amsterdam, close to the Central station. A perfect base for a day to end with Indian traditional dinner or you can continue your journey to nightlife in Amsterdam. The dishes are traditionally prepared. Also for people who have no experience with Indian food, it is definitely recommended to visit this restaurant. Do not be afraid of hot dishes. Our cook has thirty years experience and will cook according to your taste. It is a delicious experience, you should definitely try it. Not only for beginners but also a culinary experience for people who appreciate Indian cuisine. The NAAN, a traditional Indian bread, is also prepared in the clay oven at the same time , so it is always delicious, as it should be.
