The staff were great!! However the food itself was a little underwhelming. Tried this restaurant per recommendation of our hotel. Got it as a "to go" order since we had small kids back at hotel. Serving size was extremely small in proportion to what we paid. I had the Bbq prawns which was $28 and came in a tiny box.... More

Looked this one up on Tripadvisor-thank you. Got a lovely seat by the window and had superb service. Nice not to get the up charge spiel. Had plenty of food and spent well under $100 for two.

We went with friends and families, and had an excellent evening. The food was amazing. We were spoiled for chice, and didn't know what to have. Luckily our friend ordered about everything on the menu. It was all good.

My vegetable springs rolls and chicken satay were excellent. I was there at lunch. In the light of day it wasn't as clean as I would have liked, thus four star.

The food was fresh and made the way we wanted. The waiter even offered variations of dishes to meet dietary issues which shows he really knew the menu as well as the ingredients. The food was good - even the seven flavor tofu. Service was spot on especially when it came to keeping the water glass full. Will come here... More

The food and service were just so so. I ordered the green curry chicken. It was so tasteless and needed salt or soy or something but the waiter never came back until time to deliver the check. The highlight of this meal was the chocolate cake for dessert, There must be better options for Thai dining in Seattle,

Wild Ginger is really a top notch Asian restaurant. It was extremely busy the night we were there, but we were still able to converse easily over the noise. The food was terrific.

This restaurant was recommended to us. We love Thai food and decided that this was what we were in the mood for. It was walking distance (when it's not really cold) to Hotel1000. I had the best PadThai plate and we enjoyed the ambience and our service was excellent. I also recommend the Ginger cocktail I had.
