“Standard Indian Takeaway”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Phoned ahead for takeaway and only a 20min wait on a busy Friday night. Acceptable prices and good food, but not memorable. Quail entree sounded great but was disappointing. Lamb main (creamy spinach) was delicious.

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Canberra has so many restaurants its difficult to pick a good one, but the Blu Ginger lived up to its reputation. The service was good as was the menu choice. We opted for the banquet and were more than satisfied with the food, both quality and quantity. the wine list was not that extensive but the price was reasonable.

“Good Indian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

A group of 8 went on a Friday night. We had the banquet and the food was plentiful and very tasty. The staff were friendly and the service pretty quick. We would not hesitate to come back.

“Ok but not spicy enough”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

We revisited here again recently after not coming for a while. We felt the food had been dumbed down and wasn't spicy enough - even when we'd sought the waiter's advice. It was heavy and fried and the curry was too sweet for our tastes. I can't fault their service but I felt the quality of the food had dropped at least in terms of flavour.
