We took a wrong turn on Obs and lo and behold we saw this teeny little door advertising curries ... so we stopped ... A delightful little Cafe with a diverse menu catering for both vegan and non vegans at an affordable price ... the mains vary between Zar65 and Zar110 The ecclectic lil restaurant was pleasant and vibey. Typical obs vibe of yesteryear. We loved it. Even with only one waitress our meals came in a decent time looked great and tasted fabulous 👌 👏 👍 😍 Highly recommend this place will definitely be going back to try their bobotjie too next time. There is an upstairs "smoking room" for those that do ... 😆

This is a place decorated with the inspiration that artists yearn for and are inspired by. A succulent selection of South African traditional dishes and a well stocked bar that encourages the quart.

Great home cooked food with plenty for vegetarians. Great ambiance. Lots of students and local artists. Check for live music beforehand. Loved it!

We love going to Ganesh. The food is hearty, delicious and great value for money. Always a lovely vibe and authentic, "non-pretentious" homely feel. Service not the fastest as there is usually one or two people waiting tables but the staff is warm and friendly. One of my favourite places to eat in obs, especially when I'm in the mood for home cooked food. I would recommend it to anyone, just a heads up that you may have to be patient with the service, although not always the case but it's worth keeping in mind.

Great place to get your vegetarian fix. The aubergine dish is the best! This dish creates food envy amongst friends, absolutely mouth watering! Great music, good food and friendly service.

I loved being here! Why? Delicious food (be aware: big portions!), laid back atmosphere and a lot of locals, made me feel very comfortable and I enjoyed it every time I' ve been here. Why 4 out of 5? 3,5/5 SERVICE Fast and efficient, not the funniest and friendliest EVER, but totally fine. 4,5/5 ATMOSPHERE and FACILITIES The mixture of students, general locals and some visitors, makes the area in Obs quite special. In Cafe Ganesh they all meet togehter for great drinks and food in an internatiinal vibe. In addition to that it is beautifully decorated, little hard to find in a small street in Obs. 4/5 PRICES Very fine, especially regarding the big portions. 4/5 FOOD AND DRINKS Tasty and very authentic! Especially for vegetarians, there is a lot to choose from.

Easy going laid back eatery in Obs - student suburb of Cape Town. Crayfish samoosa's are the best. Mainly student and art crowd. Unpretentious food. Good time garaunteed

One of Obs hidden gems. I love the tomato soup starter and the falafel pita. Very affordable and with an interesting menu.

My wife and I were looking for something different and this certainly fits into that category. It looks a little scruffy, especially from the outside but it has a lot of character. The food was really great. I had umngqusho (lamb shank with samp) and my wife had the vegetable rootie. Really delicious and very affordable.
