From walking in to walking out, the service was excellent. The waitress was exceptionally helpful and created a list of ideas for us to do whilst in Seattle, tailored to our taste and timeframes. The food was delicious with the real winners being the 7 flavour beef AND the green beans! The duck and Kung Pao chicken were also good.... More

Like many others - we dined at Wild Ginger before attending a concert at the Benaroya Hall. The satay skewers are delicious. 1 was just enough to wet the appetite. Lamb was our favorite. The 'Wild Ginger Duck' is a top recommendation for dinner. The steamed buns are slightly undercooked but delicious. The 5oz (smaller) portion was ideal for 1,... More

My brothers and sister-in-law dined with me so we each ordered a different entree. All the selections were so flavorful and the sommelier recommended a wonderful Reisling that complimented our food. Our favorite was the sea bass with the green mango sauce, yummy! The Thai noodles, Kung pao chicken, and black pepper scallops were also delicious. Dessert was shared, the... More

We came across Wild Ginger by accident on our first night in Seattle whilst looking for dinner after a long drive. Despite being large, we were seated in a comfortable area which felt quite intimate. Satays and pot stickers were excellent as appetisers and we shared two small mains which were also very good. We skipped desert to have some... More

We're huge Thai food snobs, and this place served truly interesting and inventive dishes. Service was excellent, top-notch, and frankly overly-accomodating when we had a friend who kept changing their mind about joining us. We liked it so much the first night we decided to eat here our second night as well. Note though, as it is a nicer restaurant... More

When my better half cleans her plate at a new dining spot, I take notice. I'm generally not a fan of cross cuisine / pan asian restaurants, but this place seemed to do most offerings well. Walked in without a reservation on a Thursday early evening, and not only was the place really busy but booked for a while. We... More

Friendly and fun waiter, delicious family-style Thai food. Mongolian noodles were excellent but a little spicy if you generally opt for the 1 or 2-star dishes. Kung Pao chicken and green beans were also wonderful. Complimentary chocolate tart dessert for birthdays.

Was visiting and ate with friends. Family style plates served with good portions. Delicious with very attentive wait staff. We ordered several of their recommended plates and were not disappointed. We sat in a cozy booth and noise level was acceptable. Highly recomended. Two couples, three drinks, no dessert was $200 for dinner. I'll return.

As Thai food is one of our favorites I can be critical. What is wrong - nothing!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The moment you walk in the greeting and attention is faultless and the staff are all very attentive. This is a large restaurant but they manage to serve up food with superb presentation and more importantly it is tasty. As city restaurants go... More

I can only recommend this place. I tried salmon (Otak Otak), which is probably the best salmon I have had in a long time. Simply food and service.
