Welcome to Ganapati Restaurant, home of south Indian cuisine here in Peckham.

The kitchen is the soul of a restaurant as it is of a home.
It is a place of hard work, companionship, and the sharing of skills and ideas. Our influences are the home style cooking and street food of Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.

Ganapati is one of the south Indian names for the elephant-headed god Ganesh. He is the well-loved remover of obstacles, with a particular fondness for sweets.

The Marius Dean Travel Bursary 2015

Our old friend Marius Dean was a collector of all sorts of wonderful objects and furniture from markets, auctions and skips. Many of his finds were reworked into new objects, giving them new lives and sense of purpose.

The Marius Dean Travel Bursary was awarded this year to MA graduate Yuta Segawa, a ceramic artist who has gone to Kolkata in India to study the disappearing art of the disposable clay teacup.
