Despite the Indian-inspired decorations, Ganesh specializes in so-called "European curries" - a style of Japanese curry that incorporates Indian spices with a European-style fond de veau. The densely flavored roux here has a fruit-based sweetness that complements the overall spiciness. Some popular varieties are beef tongue, stewed beef tendon, menchi-katsu (pork fritters), Hamburg steak, deep-fried prawns and sauteed mushrooms, with prices starting at Y690.

Drinks options include both wine and nihonshu. Take-out is available, but note that the shop may close earlier than the posted time if they run out of prepared roux for the day.
