Indian restaurants can be found all over the UK, many of them catering to Western tastes. This isn’t the case at The Ganges over in Barnstaple. Their dedication to authentic Indian cuisine was born out of the desire to give their diners a chance to enjoy traditional dishes that Indians eat on the streets and, most importantly at home with their families.
The restaurant can be found just a stone’s throw from the River Taw and the historic and picturesque Rock Park, making it one of the best places to eat in Barnstaple for families spending the day out with the kids. And with the city centre just a short walk and drive away, it’s more than ideal for a relaxed meal after work or a date night.
The eatery may look unassuming from the outside, but inside diners will be treated to one of the most family-friendly restaurants in Barnstaple. Ganges’ décor is very modern with spotlights to create a cosy ambiance, minimal décor and plenty of booths that are perfect for dining with friends and the little ones. Staff are also very friendly and can recommend dishes to newcomers or those that want to try something adventurous.
Unlike many Indian restaurants which offer the typical curry house classics, The Ganges goes a step further. Their menu offers diners a chance to discover regional cuisine that is rarely seen on British menus. Diners can indulge in street food delights such as fire-roasted corn on the cob and tangy chicken wings. For the real taste of homestyle Indian cooking however, the Punjabi railway lamb curry, Roadside Dal and Biryani Noorjahan should do the trick.
Diners looking for the true Indian dining experience will find no better destination in Barnstaple than The Ganges. Any occasion will be even more of a treat for tastecard members who can enjoy exclusive restaurant savings when they call to book ahead and present their cards upon arrival.
