Ganga - Indian restaurant

I like Indian curry.
Though it is uncommon and quite expensive in Korea.
My favorite Indian restaurant is Ganga.
The first shop opened in Apgujeong-dong, Seoul.
And now there are several branch restaurants.

These photos are taken in the one at Apgujeong-dong.


Nan - Indian bread

I like this very much. Eating nan is fun, even without curry. People also eat curry with chawal( ice). I prefer nan to chawal.

spinach curry
Palak paneer - Spinach curry

It tastes much better than I expected.

Chicken curry
Chicken Makhni

There're more than ten sort of chicken curries in Ganga, and this is my favorite one. Cream and butter included make it more soft and delicious.

Bean Curry
Dal bukhara - bean curry

I was curious what curry tastes like if it contains beans. It's not bad. But previous two curries are better I think.

Tandoori chicken salad

Tandoori chicken salad

Tandoori chicken is one of the most famous Indian food. Red color and herbs are remarkable.

Indian chilli chicken

A little hot, but not to be concerned much. I think Tandoori chicken is better.

at Ganga

The place is rather dark to take photos of food. But I like the atmosphere.
Everything's good here.... except the high price.
It usually costs more than 20,000won per person. (about 21 USD)

I hope Indian cusine get more popular in Korea, so there are more of new Indian restaurant which may effect the price.

hey, the Indian food looks 맛있어요! I like curry too... especially Japanese curry. Singapore has lots of curry dishes - Indian curry, Japanese curry, Thai curry, curry chicken, curry fishhead etc. You must visit Singapore one of these days!

Oh, someday I would like to visit Singapore to try various curries!

In Korean, curry usually means Korean curry - almost same to Japanese curry. If you visit Korea and eat curry, probably its what you like. :)

Yum...I've eaten at the restaurant before..if you like Indian you should try Chakraa in Itaewon. It is small but has a great atmosphere..I am a little bit a connoisseur of Indian food and seriously their food is so amazing!

Yummmm.. Chakra, its true. But I think there should be one more variety of Chicken curry. The chicken curry is not so good but the others are very good....

Thank you for your recommendation. I think I have heard of Chakraa before. Next time I eat Indian food, it may be Chakraa.

I usually eat chicken curry when it is Indian curry, but I might have to think something else in Chakraa.
