This takeaway is under relatively recent new ownership after being previously being regarded as a culinary disaster. It is located in the back streets of Sandbach, in Hightown, near the United Services Club. There is street parking nearby (but don't worry about parking because they have a delivery service).

This is now the definitive takeaway in the area. The new owners have certainly turned this business around. It has an extensive menu and offers free delivery on orders over 7 (within a reasonable radius, they state).

The food is freshly prepared, as can be witnessed in the open kitchen, giving a clear view of the preparation process.

The service is friendly although, it can sometimes be a wait for the meal to be handed over. This in itself is not a bad thing. It means they are busy (because the food is good) and they are taking care in the preparation.

I have sampled the chicken dhansak and the chicken dopiaza. The dhansak is prepared in a beautifully sweet and slightly hot lentil sauce. The lentil sauce contains whole split lentils copiously spread throughout forming a fairly stiff consistency. The meat is plentiful and large chunks of breast chicken. Most definitely not the smaller processed pieces that seem to be creeping sinisterly into the less discerning restauranteur's offerings. The dopiaza was also well prepared, containing a similar amount and quality of meat , well spiced, being subtle rather than harsh. The rice is also excellent and aromatic, based on good quality basmati. The nan breads are large and bready, cooked in a clay oven on open view.

The home delivery service is good, although once again you have to wait rather more than the expected time, so take this into account when placing a telephone order. The meals arrive hot and fresh. They are happy to deliver even later into the evening. I have ordered at 11:30, when the takeaway closes at midnight. The food arrived hot and fresh 40 minutes later. It was also a four or five mile journey for them to deliver, for which there was no charge.

A takeaway meal for 2, consisting of chicken dhansak, chicken dopiaza, 2 pillau rice and 2 nan breads cost 13.00, delivered to the door (plus a small tip for the driver).

Overall, this is an excellent Indian Takeaway. I cannot praise the quality enough. I rate the food and service very highly and the value for money is excellent. Also note that there is a new takeaway in Middlewich called Balti Spice. I rate this equally for qualit and value for money, but the Ganges has the edge in that it delivers locally.
