Great curry house

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... read 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

as always a lovely meal. Food has always been good and don't mind paying restaurant prices if you know food will be good. Friendly and helpful staff. Definitely worth it!

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.
