Lovely food and good service

The restaurant itself is small and you feel like you are sitting a bit too close to other tables. However this was the only downside to the experience - food was lovely, some of the best Indian food I've had.

Have eaten here and had home deliveries and can't find fault - the food is always excellent. Always delivered on time and hot. When dining in the restaurant the customer service is excellent and we would always recommend. Excellent restaurant, food and customer service - always make you feel special.

Great food, great service, great atmosphere, affordable prices, and they gave us a shot on the house when we left! As they are so brilliant you should book in advance or it does get full up, we nearly didn't get a table.

Have been meaning to write a review of this place for a long time. It is an exceptional restaurant in that the food has been consistently very good for years. The staff are very friendly, and this last time my mother was given an impromptu birthday gift . Would highly recommend it.

Just had my first Indian take away of 2016 from Blue Ginger in Kempston, the whole experience was very simple and easy to use, we collected the food as it suited us better. Once home the food was nice and hot and easily identifiable and tasted very good, this is not your average take away!! I would highly recommend you... More

I have travelled the world and eaten a lot of Indian food in my lifetime since getting hooked on Saag Paneer as a young man. The dish is mainly a dreary gravy like concoction with tasteless paneer but at this establishment the spinach is beautiful and the cheese is tangy and exquisite. Quite frankly it is the best in the... More

This is the best Indian restaurant in Bedford in my opinion. The food is delicious and the staff are extremely friendly, last time I visited we were given complimentary boxes of chocolate. The staff are that friendly. We tend to order takeaways from the blue ginger as they come just as hot as they are made in the kitchen and... More

Went to a birthday party there and had a fantastic evening. Staff are extremely helpful, and will explain about any dishes you are not sure of.
