Had a two course meal here prior to going to the Opera House, our first visit to Ginger Bistro. The surroundings were very nice and the service was excellent, as was the food. One minor criticism was the menu selection, we tend to avoid eating fish - tonight's menu consisted of a (somewhat) limited non-fish selection. However, there were some... More

Just recently been reconfirmed as my favourite restaurant in Belfast after a few years not having been to it. Great atmosphere and staff, nice and relaxed, and the foods exceptional too.

Ate here on the first night of our stay, after reading the excellent reviews and were not disappointed! Our cheery waiter was excellent, as well as amusing and the food that followed was delicious. A buzzy atmosphere topped off a really lovely dining experience, so would be very happy to return.
