Delicious!

this is a funky outdoor restaurant with very flavorful food. Very friendly staff. Beef stew (a dark Indian curry) and the chicken tandoori were very tasty. Plan on visiting again since it was sooooo....good!

Lovely setting outside. I had the Bombay shrimp to start and the Tandoori chicken as a main. The tandoori chicken was the best I have had outside of uk ( I know that sounds ridiculous but if you are from UK you know what I mean ). However drinks service was appalling. I had to ask at least three times... More

I had paneer cheese in an oriental sauce as an appetizer. It was quite tasty; and potato bhaji for a main course. Both were quite good - spicy and interesting, and the service and ambiance was very nice. They have a tandoori oven and serve complimentary naan with a sauce.

A big draw of this place is the open air dining. Big tables with some comfortable seating, and if you go during the day there's sun shades. Food is always interesting, something of a fusion. Interesting drinks, too.

We were recommended to this restaurant by fellow guests at our resort and the front desk staff, so we had high expectations. We were actually told that this was a Thai fusion restaurant, but it's not so that threw us off a little from the start. It's more of an Indian fusion, with a heavy lean to Indian. For anyone...

Ginger has a creative menu that can be called Pan-Asian or Fusion. There is a tandoor oven for Indian dishes, and many delicious (and mysterious, until the waiter revealed the ingredients) sauces. It is an understated setting: Outdoors dining on funky painted wooden tables. No glitz here. My wife had the three-course 60fl dinner: a main course of succulent scallops... More

We stumbled across this restaurant one day out exploring and taking photos of the old buildings. AMAZING! The food, the wine, the atmosphere and the attention to serves was great. Check them out!

The staff was so excited to see how much we enjoyed this exquisite food. When next we travel to this area of the world we will for sure indulge ourselves in the amazing blend, that is Indian cuisine fused with the delectable tastes of the Caribbean!
