At Ganges’ lunch buffet, kids will enjoy alternating between plain or garlic naan (good finger food) and much-loved (and kid-friendly) Indian staples.Before diving into finger foods, kids can wash their hands off at a sink on the second floor. Meat lovers and avid vegetarians have plenty to choose from, with everything from mild potato curries to fiery vindaloo. On the topic of spice, dishes can get a little heated so test the options first before piling on a full plate. If you can’t find your favorites at the buffet table, order a la carte from the menu, which features cuisine from both northern and southern India. High chairs are available, but kids seem to have a blast crawling over the plush sofa dining chairs. Attentive English-speaking staff and a pleasing ambiance make Ganges an ideal place for families to draw out their weekend. To take advantage of sunny days, we recommend picking a spot on the second floor outdoor terrace. Remember your sun screen, though. If it’s color and movement you’re are after, check out the fun Bollywood dancing every Thursday night for some quality family entertainment. RMB 42, kids under 12 half price.
