The waiter was a nice guy. The portions are very big. There is vegan items on the menu. Too bad the food I got didn't taste anything.
I was full but..

I went to Cafe Ganesh with my wife and two friends after reading rave reviews on 'The Culinary Backstreet'. On entering, we had no one to meet us at the door and were left standing around (even though we did book a table). After finally finding an empty table, we proceeded to wait 30 minutes before we got service. Understandably she was not able to greet us at the door or take our order expediently because she was the only wait staff for the entire restaurant on a Saturday night!

Anyway, on to the food....Crayfish and vegetable samoosas for starters...very tasty and well priced.

Main dish...Vegetable rotis X 3 and one lamb roti.....three of us got our food but our pregnant friend who had ordered roti on the side did not so we waited for another 15 minutes while I could hear her tummy rumbling for her dish which arrived cold!

Time between each waitress visit approximately 20-30 minutes! Just not acceptable service standards for a highly rated restaurant that is obviously raking in tourists because of those ratings.

Great local hangout in Woodstock!! Pretty hard to find as the first one you see is "cafe Ganesh" daytime restaurant in the corner of the building. You have to walk to the back and ring a door bell that does not really work... But definitely worth the effort!!!
We will be back

This is my favorite restaurant in Observatory. Every single dish there is delicious and the interior is unique.
