Ganesha Indian T/A, Bodmin, Cornwall
« on: March 11, 2020, 12:00 PM »
Ganesha opened only a couple of weeks ago, and on the first weekend they had to stop accepting orders at 19:00, they were so busy.  Since then I have used Ganesha on several occasions, and on each occasion it has not only lived up to expectations, it has far surpassed them, with the sole exception of a Tandoori chicken starter which I felt was a little too dry (the tikka starter, on the other hand, was beautifully moist, as were the chicken pieces in the main courses).  Ganesha is owned by Jake, a young Polish expatriate who previously owned Mumbai Spice in Roche (where I live).  Sadly Mumbai Spice closed a couple of years ago, and since then I have been very disappointed with the standards of most other local BIRs and T/As.  Jake employs three chefs, two Indian and one Bangladeshi, only one of whom looks after the tandoori side of things.  Dishes sampled so far include chicken tikka starter, mixed tandoori starter, Tandoori chicken starter, seekh kebab starter, chicken Madras, chicken shatkora, lamb dhansak, sag aloo, pulao rice and keema naan.  The classic dishes (chicken Madras, lamb dhansak, sag allo, pulao rice) are a real "blast from the past" — absolutely superb, and leaving nothing to be desired whatsoever.  Too far for most of you to travel, I am sure, but if ever you do find yourselves in Bodmin, give it a try — I can guarantee that you will not be disappointed.

[Update, 20-Jun-2020] Three weeks ago I was sold beef masquerading as lamb in a "lamb" dhansak.  Until I can replicate their chicken Madras I shall probably continue to place orders with Ganesha, but never again anything that purports to contain lamb.
