Delicious food

The food at Wild Giner is pan asian and so delicious, but if you want to eat lunch or dinner there, I recommend that you place a reservation as depending on the time of day you visit, it can get quite busy.

Had a last-minute business lunch at Wild Ginger; without a reservation, they were able to quickly seat us at the kitchen/bar. Nice service starts with (very) hot towels and had some tasty green tea. We had the Vietnamese Spring Rolls as an appetizer; very nice and very fresh. Lunch was a healthy serving of Kung Pao chicken for my lunchmate... More

We met as a group in a Private Dinner room. Service was friendly and well organized. The room itself was a bit small with no windows so it more felt like a meeting room. Food was excellent. we had the waiter bring different dishes which all tasted great. Icecream as dessert was delicious.

I've only tasted Wild Ginger food in The Triple Door venue. It's been quite good- depending on your individual Asian tastes. I definitely didn't like the Pad Thai. It was a big pile of very insubstantial noodles with barely anything else. I ordered it with prawns. I accidentally ordere buddha rolls- the cold un-fried rolls that I don't care for.... More

Weve been here 6 people. We returned dishes and weren't satisfied with the slow service .. The dishes weren't good at all and the desserts menu was very short

I've been visiting this restaurant for years and it's been declining. Yesterday, I took my Mom for lunch and had a very dismissive waitress. She passed by our table multiple times and wouldn't even glance in our direction. I had to ask for soya sauce twice before we got it and by then , it was too late. Same with... More

I went there for lunch and had the prawn satay, which was uninspiring. The waitress recommended the duck, which was adequately spiced and served with delicious steamed buns. Overall, I felt the menu was limited and the dishes did not have the Thai richness and layers of flavors that I was looking for. Sadly, I have had better Thai food... More

We had our group dinner before going to watch the Orchestra. There were 7 of us at the table and we ordered family style and split everything. The food was great and so was the wine. The sommelier helped us pick a few very nice bottles of wine. We finished off with a bottle of champagne and dessert. Overall, it... More
