I was visiting relatives in Bedfordshire and we got some food delivered from here as it sounded smart online etc The prices are quite high but we thought will be excellent food? To be honest, I was really disappointed with the food and portion sizes. The two bhunas we ordered only filled half the takeaway dish, it was like someone... More

I have been eating their food for about 10 years now, and have never been disappointed! I have visited on numerous occasions with friends, for Christmas parties or as a couple, and the food and service has always been excellent. I have also had a takeaway from there every fortnight for the last couple of years, and again, it has... More

Attended the Blue Ginger on Thursday 30th April with friends, we have been going to this restaurant for 8years regularly as group and with my family. I'd rate this as the best curry house in Bedford 1) for its food 2) for the service. You'll leave this place feeling full and happy without a doubt!! Cheers Ali for your continued... More

We decided to eat at the resturant as opposed to ordering a take away. Had a really nice curry, food came out quickly and hot and plenty of it. We also had desserts and coffees afterwards, which were very nice as well. The staff were very attentive and offered us a complementary drink at the end of the night. Great... More

One item was missed off our order. Even though the order was read back to us on the phone. The food turned up luke warm. And when... More

A small and inconspicuous Indian restaurant, next door to a very 'showy' corner restaurant. We had reserved for 12 people and were not split up even though the restaurant is small.Comfortable seats, spotless tablecloths and real napkins set the scene for a great evening. Nibbles were provided while we chose from a very wide-ranging menu. Individual tastes caused no problems... More

Arrived early with no reservation and just as well that we did come early as the place was booked out on a week night - always a good sign. The staff were really friendly and helpful and service was efficient. Menu had all of the usual dishes that you see in an Indian restaurant but also had some house specialties... More

We had very high hopes of this place after reading reviews but were very disappointed. The food was so bland (the tarka all was mush with a horrible taste of burnt onions, the chicken tasted rubbery and old). The service (apart from one waiter in a grey jumper) was awful, no attention, no questions to check if everything was ok,... More
