Ganges for Indian Food - Big Disappointment

FlavoursGal | Dec 2, 2006 08:32 PM

We were in Montreal (our hometown) for a few days and had a craving for Indian. Checked out Chowhound, and realized that there don't seem to be any Indian restaurants that really stand out.

Based on a few reviews, we decided to try Ganges on Sherbrooke West in N.D.G. In one word - YUCK. The service was terrible - we had to beg someone to take our order, and the food was probably the worst Indian I've ever had. All of the dishes we ordered were sickeningly sweet - something I've NEVER encountered with Indian food - and, needless to say, we had lots of leftovers.

We started with the prawn puri, which was okay but not great, and turned out to be the only dish of the whole evening with any heat in it. We also had a couple of samosas, which were bland and filled only with potato. The butter chicken, the lamb korma, the aloo gobi, and the mattar paneer, were all incredibly sweet and lacked any depth of flavour whatsoever. The nan was very good, but with no great sauces to dip it into, what's the point?

For our next visit, is there anything in Montreal better than this?
