At Dancing Ganesha, customers can perch atop an imaginary elephant and trample hunger with a prix-fixe meal that spans the entire Indian subcontinent. The four-course couples dinner begins with an appetizer platter for two, topped with shrimp taka-tak, a lamb boti kebab, chicken tikki, and mussels masala. Next, a refreshing sprouted mung salad teams up with ginger-and-carrot soup to prepare dining duos for healthfully scaling the Taj Mahal, or biting into their choice of three entrees—salmon tikka, Dancing Ganesha sea bass, or garam masala lamb chops. Masala chocolate tiramisu or chai crème brûlée bookend each meal, further enhanced by a bottle of reserve wine. To organize your own food parade, bypass the prix-fixe menu and enjoy the restaurant's eclectic, vegetarian-friendly Indian dinners, buffet lunch ($9.99–$11.99), and softly lit modern décor any day of the week.
At Dancing Ganesha, a comfortable, modern atmosphere and breeze patio complement a varied menu of traditional Indian cuisine, including tandoori chicken and paper-thin dosa crêpes. Exotically spiced plates, such as lamb vindaloo and saag paneer, arrive at polished wooden tables, which are illuminated by the restaurant's elegant built-in ceiling lights and elephants holding candles with their trunks. Dancing Ganesha also holds its “karma” happy hour from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. daily, during which diners can order $5 appetizers, $2 tap drinks, and half off anything else at the bar.
