“Obs best kept secret ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2016 via mobile

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.

“Vegetarian shebeen”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2016

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.

“Oh yes! Place to be! Place to eat in Obs!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2016

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.
