4.5 out of 5 stars I feel like I missed something - I only met a nice lady but no psycho guy... I had the lunch buffet for $7.95 today and it was healthy and tasty. 3 of 4 entrees were vegan (kidney bean, chickpea and lentil) but not a creamy dish. Veggies, samosas and both rice were vegan too, but not chai tea or mango ice cream. Two sauces not vegan but mango sauce OK, as well as salad. Fresh fruit dessert option. greg

3.5 out of 5 stars New Ganges is a cozy restaurant across from the southwestern side of Golden Gate Park, near Kezar Stadium. Serving delicious curries and various other traditional Indian dishes. The friendly service will make you feel comfortable as the tasty food will make you feel satiated. Dan

0.5 out of 5 stars The owner is very rude. It is too bad that it is the only veg indian food place in SF because I will never go back there. I used to just get take out so I would not have to deal with him, but last time I went he tried to charge my credit card for things that he did not give me and wouldn't let me have any nan. Quite strange. pinkysf

4.5 out of 5 stars Food is yummy, especially carrot pudding.Good location.Owner has gotten much better (sure, he still pushes things, but he doesn't stand right over your shoulder anymore). Recently, I went on a Sunday evening, and the restaurant was empty. Hopefully more people will try it. Soon. Please... Becca

0 out of 5 stars I do NOT recommend this restaurant under any circumstance. It's not the food, the food is fine. It's the owner. Pushy, in your face, overbearing-call him what you will, I think he may have some kind of personality disorder.Anyway he's over the top, and he is very difficult to reason with. If you or anyone you know is considering opening a veg Indian place in SF- PLEASE DO IT! We'll love you for it seitan nic

3.5 out of 5 stars Food made from scratch. If you like spicy, ask for D (the most spicy) as food is mild otherwise. Owner is very proud of food and gave us free dal. He mostly left us to our conversation but did come back frequently to suggest foods and to talk a bit. Only Indian vegetarian restaurant in San Francisco - nonvegan items clearly marked. LHLisavegan

0 out of 5 stars The food was mediocre and kinda pricey. The host very overbearing and very discriminatory with the service - almost depended on who you were or who you were with. I would NEVER go back to that place! navenduc

4 out of 5 stars Great food; only miss was saag paneer. It's an "experience" restaurant - the owner is very in-your-face friendly, some say overbearing. Don't go for romance or quiet; go to interact or be entertained. piou

4 out of 5 stars Excellent and authentic Indian food. Owner was welcoming and his pride in the food (and his restaurant) was refreshing; he treated us like we were guests in his home. He even showed us the kitchen! terrapin

3 out of 5 stars Food is just okay, nothing special. Service can be a bit over-powering. Atmosphere doesn't feel right, specially on a quiet night. chris

2 out of 5 stars Service was good (abit too much), ambience a bit awkward tho. Ordered all vegan food. Samosas were very spicy but not really seasoned. Requested entrees as mild, result = bland. Food wasn't great, portions small. Much better places to eat veg, esp. in SF! tammy

1 out of 5 stars Bland, spice-mixing "off". All the dishes ordered were dull. Palak paneer not good at all. Waiter absurdly pushy! Pakistani cook attempting Indian Hindu food & missing it. No decor - strangely drab. stella

4 out of 5 stars Food is very good and owner-waiter is most accommodating, but we asked for dishes withut oil as we're McDougallers. He agreed to make oil-free dishes, but the two dishes we got were swimming in oil. DPressman

3 out of 5 stars Food was delicious. Service was AWFUL. The owner wouldn't leave us alone. He made us try things and rate them when we just wanted to eat in peace. Won't be going back because of it but it was tasty PikkuMyy
