Best Indian restaurant found in Blackburn, Victoria
There is Indian food and then there is fantastic, authentic, return again and again to enjoy Indian food. This is what you will find at the Ganesh Restaurant in Blackburn, Victoria. It is just across from the train station and we go back there time and time again for family gatherings, birthdays, and the yummiest food.
This restaurant was established in 1998 under the vision of Chef/Owner Mr. Raj Rawat and Mrs Hema. Ganesh Restaurant had an aim to introduce the authentic and rich culture of Indian food to the local community.
For the last 15 years, owners have put all their experience and hard work together to make Ganesh Restaurant one of the favourite Indian restaurants for all Indian food lovers. As Indian culture is so diversified, its food, taste and appearance also vary from one Indian state to another. The owners say, "In the Ganesh Restaurant, we have already done the hard work for you and selected India's best dishes for you to bring them to you. Come and experience India's rich culture at Ganesh Restaurant. Call:- 0433 307 270 | E - Mail:- firstname.lastname@example.org."
This is a family-run, family fun restaurant with owners with hearts of gold and chefs renown. My son Taz drags us there every birthday. We do not go kicking and screaming; we go there with a shout of "you beaut".
The menu is beyond extensive with every meat, sauce, rice or seafood you can imagine. So, of course, we all order something a bit different and share and share and share. Their saffron rice is also beyond fluffy - so aromatic.
What I also love is you do not gasp at the bill after feeding a family of four plus friends. Cheapest most delish birthday party ever - just bring some balloons. Dessert is available, but we are too full from sharing a huge range of plates and taste sensations to every fit it.
You do need to book your table, especially for the weekend. The takeaway trade never stops which is an excellent sign for any restaurant. But it never makes your meal late. They are quick and efficient. You must try this Indian food, even if only take away for the moment. The Ganesh Indian Palace is worth travelling for rain, hail, or dark of night.
If you are getting off the train at Blackburn, go straight there and do not pass go and spend your monopoly money.
I've made another mistake Tricia, reading your article at lunch time. I have developed a taste for Indian food over the past few years and The Ganesh will go on the Indian Restaurant bucket list. Neil.
