Ganga, Indian Restaurant
The Deulangil Restaurant District has become quite famous among the residents of Daegu. A lot of people think of this area first when trying to find a restaurant at which to have a celebration.This is because the area has a restaurant to suit virtually every need, taste and budget. The choice of venues ranges from typical Korean and Western-style diners to exquisite Asian restaurants, as well as the increasing number of Japanese and Chinese venues.
Among the choices of international cuisines, Indian food ranks near the top. There are already several Indian restaurants in Daegu, in the downtown area and near Kyungpook National University. Several months ago another Indian restaurant, Ganga, was opened in the Deurangil Restaurant District. In addition to the types of flavorful dishes we’ve come to expect at Indian restaurants, restaurants, Ganga offers more seating for diners as well as a fancy new decor befitting its theme. Ganga is a high-class Indian restaurant, which boasts various kinds of curry, nan, and barbecue dishes. When you enter the restaurant, a friendly staff member will welcome you with a warm smile and guide you to a table.
The restaurant is dimly lit and elegantly decorated with aspects of Indian culture. The Indian music playing in the background creates a comfortable dining environment. Seating is arranged in several different ways, and you can specify your preference when making a reservation. The menu is vast, and it may take a little time for you to consider what to order, as you can choose from four categories of barbecued chicken, lamb, and seafood among others. In addition, the restaurant offers seven kinds of nan, which comes served as two pieces in a basket, as well as five categories of vegetable, chicken, lamb, seafood and beef curry.
I ordered two kinds of curry, Chicken Tikka Masala and Palak Paneer, along with four pieces of Tandoori chicken and a basket of plain nan. The tandoori chicken and nan were delicious, and the curry looked and tasted less watery than what is often served at other Indian restaurants. Considering the thickness of the curry, I recommend having it with nan rather than rice. The waitstaff were very polite and offered suggestions and explanations of some of the items on the menu, making selection easier and the experience more pleasant. The prices were reasonable, considering the high quality of the food. The curry costs between 17,000 won and 20,000 won, Tandoori chicken, 22,000 won, and nan from 2,000 won to 5,000 won. I haven’t had a chance to try all the items on the menu, but I’m sure that you won't regret choosing Ganga for your next Indian meal.
Ganga is open from 11:30am to 3pm for lunch, and from 5:30pm until 10pm for dinner. The last order for lunch and dinner is 2:30pm and 9:30pm, respectively. During the weekends and holidays, it is open from 11:30am to 10pm. The restaurant has a seating capacity for 80, and is equipped with separate rooms for groups of 4, 6, 8, or 12 persons. When you make a reservation and order a set menu, which costs 30,000 won to 50,000 won, you can use this separate room.
