The Ganges (Plymouth)
Advantages: Reasonale prices,wheelchair access, friendly staff
The Ganges Indian Restuarant in Plymouth is situated in the city centre of Plymouth. If you head for the Barbican you will get to this resturant on your way. I would say that the majority of people living in Plymouth would know where this place is, it was famous of offering 50% of their food bill, however sadly, that has now stopped. The building is situated next to "The Plaza Snooker hall" and is along the main road, it is close by to a few other indian resturants but I have found that The Ganges is the cheapest of the three. It is about a five to ten minute walk away from the famous Barbican. There is a small car park nearby, although it is pay and display and it is known to have quite a few attendants around, so be careful, and unfortunately charging is throughout the night.
I think what makes this good is that the situation it is in, and there are a vast array of resturants, bars and places to relax around here, with only a short walk to each one.
Food - as said before, they used to have 50% your food bill, which was really good, and I could have two courses for maybe £10! Nowadays, sadly they have caught on, and it is back to "normal" prices. I still think the prices are very fair and you can get a curry on it's own with rice for less than £10. They have a vast selection, and the staff are very knowledgable so feel free to ask them questions. I find the portions are just adequate - so you probably will find you eat most of it. One thing I don't like is having too much and feeling like you have to eat what is there.
Staff - the Manager here, is a lady with blonde ish hair, she is really helpful and greets you when you come into the resturant - she is very approachable and always seems to have a hands on approach, which I think is quite good.
Toilets - situated at the back of the resturant - these are always very clean and tidy inside - they aren't very modern but overall I have never thought badly of them.
Overall I find the Ganges a cheap and cheerful kind of place. The staff are always warm and friendly, the place is quite big and there is a good friendly atmosphere here. I once went here with my friend who is in a wheelchair and he found the place really good, with access available, and it was good because it is all on one level.
Come here if you want reasonable prices, friendly staff and an all round nice time.
Don't come here if you don't like Indian cuisine!
Summary: Overall a really nice place, would highly recommend.
