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
