We decided to try this place after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, and we're glad we did! Fantastic food, absolutely full of flavour. Perfect, crispy naan bread. Great atmosphere and faultless service. Recommended!!

After seeing a large number of excellent reviews I was very disappointed. when I finally got to visit this restaurant. I don’t go out much so I was really looking forward to having a meal here. On arrival on a Tuesday evening I found the restaurant small with a flat atmosphere. The restaurant was 25% full and the staff looked... More

We've visited Blue Ginger several times as a family and have always been very impressed with the food, ambiance but especially the service from the attentive and professional staff. On the latest occasion we were slightly disappointed that the staff seemed a little less switched on and somewhat going through the motions rather than doing everything they can to enhance... More

The Blue Ginger has been a favourite of ours for many many years. The food is to die for and if you have a favourite dish (my husband's is a Chicken Methi) and it isn't on the menu, the chef will accommodate and make it for you. The staff are polite, friendly and very efficient and the owner takes a... More

Arrived early Friday evening without a reservation. Staff found us a table - it was very quiet at this time. However, the restaurant became really busy later on. (This is a very popular restaurant). The food was marvelous! We requested our food be made extra spicy, which it was and tasted absolutely delicious. They also a made a dish, at... More

This is a more than decent Bangladeshi restaurant ... They also have indian Summer on Tavistock Street... Same menu. Please consider that Bangladeshi cuisine is different to traditional and authentic indian / punjabi and or Pakistani food... You should not confuse them... My Bangladeshi friends have a different ethos and approach to cooking and it's very distinct and noticeable... I... More

We visit the Blue Ginger every time we come to Bedford. We usually get take out since our family is large but I cherish the times we are able to dine in. I have never been disappointed with their food nor with their service. The staff are friendly and go out of their way to make your visit special. This... More

This small restaurant is always busy - their takeaway lines are always busy, this says it all really. Always delivered on time with a smile and occasional freeby.

Eagerly awaited first visit to this restaurant. Initial impression was that it is smaller than I expected from the gallery photos etc. - only 30 seats I believe. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Having been to probably hundreds of Indian restaurants I thought the menu was quite limited with no soups, pathia dishes or okra or aubergine side dishes. However,... More

Popped in to order a takeaway as haven't got around to getting in for a meal as yet. Have to say i see why it is recommended from the food. Was very tasty and different dishes had their own flavour. Not oily and very filling. Some different dishes on the menu and all the favourites too. Some interesting starters to... More
