Lovely food

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

We decided to try Blue Ginger after reading reviews, we are big curry lovers and have tried quite a few restaurants but we found it pretty tasteless, the chicken was really hard and the rice was stodgy. Sorry not for us.

I have been to this restaurant a couple of times and had several takeaways from i as well. All have been very good, the service is excellent and food is probably the best (curry) in Bedford. If you doubt my review just try it.

Visited Blue Ginger after a hectic weekend away in Dublin, not been in for a while, tried other restaurants, I must say the meal was fantastic, very friendly staff, nothing was too much trouble, quality food, if you like lamb and something spicy go for the Jalfrezi..... well tasty...oops and hot

Absolutely love Blue Ginger, it is one of the best in bedford (eat in or takeaway). The staff are excellent and the food is always delicious. I have tried many of the different curry houses in Bedford but none quite compare.

Whether your looking for a special night out, a group meal, a romantic evening or just a quick meal because you can't be bothered to cook! This is an ideal place. It is totally reliable for good service, excellent Indian Food, pleasant ambience all at a price that doesn't need saving for ! You come away feeling as if you've... More
