Wild Ginger serves Asian fusion cuisine. They take the best of everything (Thai, Chinese, Japanese, etc.) and use local ingredients to make high-quality food at a reasonable price. They also are very good at serving you promptly - very important if you are attending a performance at Benaroya Hall next door and need to get there on time. There are... More

Recommended by work associate and Seattle Sheraton concierge. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the service and attention was excellent. Stella and her service team were on top of everything. Started with the Mekong hot and sour soup which was very tasty and flavorful. Siam lettuce cup for appetizer different but nice touch. Seven flavor beef... More

In town for a conference & came with a group of colleagues. Waitress made spot on suggestions. Scallops, halibut, prawns, duck and green beans were amazing. Great place to share plates! Basil, cucumber, vodka, lemonade cocktail lived up to its billing!

Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy the food, and the service and atmosphere surely make it appear like a top restaurant. In addition, the food is reasonably priced, so you don't have to be a Rockefeller to fine here. However, the food isn't as outstanding as the context. I had some shrimp satay, which was lukewarm by the time... More

We had been to Wild Ginger before in 2012 but brought our teenagers this time. The service was excellent. Aaron made it a night to remember. One of our daughters was having a birth day and he had dessert brough out to us gratis. We shared the lamb satays, beef satays, tofu satays, noodles and potstickers. Everything was exemplary. We...

Being Japanese, I appreciate well-prepared and innovative Asian food so have to say the food here is consistently wonderful. One of my favorite dishes is the Mongolian Noodles - it's delicious and flavorful every time I order it. The noodles are perfectly cooked. The Hanoi Tuna is yummy and different, though not in a bad way. That Laksa reminds me... More

We visited during a busy lunch hour and were told only "bar area" seating was available (without a reservation). Were accepted the bar seats and my younger looking friend showed ID to the hostess, per state law I assume (even though we were not ordering alcohol). After sitting at our table, our waiter immediately requested proof of age again. I... More

I had lunch there during the special Seattle Menu week. so it was a three course meal. The dumplings were good but the entree was bland need something else. The dessert was very refreshing and the best part of the meal...Service was good. I have had better meals here, so I was disappointed..

The food is served family style, so share several things with your dining companions. The halibut and scallops are particularly well done.

We returned to Wild Ginger after an absence of a couple of years and found it to be every bit as wonderful as we'd remembered. The first thing we noticed was the large number of servers and busboys who kept things moving at a nice clip (though we never felt at all rushed during our meal). But it's the food... More
