Luckily we went for an early dinner because this place was packed when we left. Obviously, this is a popular restaurant. Our food was delicious and complemented by interesting sauces. Definitely worth visiting this restaurant!

Being a celiac I dread dining out, especially when it's in a group situation such as this visit was. The service was incredibly friendly and my dietary requirements were no bother. I had special plates of food prepared for me separately and all the food and wine was thoroughly enjoyable.

We wer 6 people seated in a large booth. Ordered drinks and then our friends ordered for us. We chose to eat family style and I never even looked at the menu. I can say that everything we ate was very good. Duck was outstanding.

I joined a group of friends for a late lunch. The place was almost empty, so I saw little excuse for our poor service, such as asking three times for sweetener, having other peoples' orders get delivered to our table, and slow arrival of the main courses. Dishes were tasty - no complaints there. pricey, though - over $30 each... More

This was my second time at Wild Ginger. Great food. The pad Thai was excellent. I know it is a typical dish but there's is light, fresh, and delicious. Local WA wines also very good. Great atmosphere! Must try

I have been here multiple times with my family. They have good selection of South East Asian food, great flavors, good service but is bit expensive. They have good representation of each country. They have good Vegetarian options like Rama Setu & Thai Passion tofu

Been here numerous time for business lunches. I've seen a number of reviewers say Chinese cuisine. Wild Ginger bills themselves as Asian Fusion cuisine. That is accurate. Their food is a combination fusion of Chinese, Korean, SE Asian, Japanese and American. It's quite interesting and unique. I alway found the food very good. Their Five Spice Beef is my favorite....

Enjoyed a variety of dishes that teased the senses: 7 flavor beef, Mongolian noodles, wandering sage soup, green papaya salad, green beans, green curry chicken, mandarin chicken (not so flavorful), wok-fried BBQ prawns finished w/blackberry sorbet + rich chocolate torte...perfect pair. All dishes had the perfect punch or smooth finish. Server Stella was attentive. Highly, highly recommended!!
