We went to Black Ginger on our last night in St Barths and it did NOT disappoint! From the outside it is very unassuming but once you are inside, it has a sexy, very cool vibe. I actually didn't want to eat Thai while on vacation and was reluctant to go but the owner of our villa said it was... More

We went here for an inexpensive dinner and loved it. Great location, and wonderful food. The staff was super attentive and prompt. Very good Thai food! If you wallet is hurting, or you just want good Thai food, stop by here for an awesome dinner that won't break the bank.

We just finished a great dinner at Black Ginger. The food and atmosphere are great. We love thai food and the quality, flavor and presentation were all fantastic. The restaurant is also beautiful inside and very reasonably priced particularly for St. Bart's. Our waiter, Emmanuel was great and very personable. To top off the great night, our car battery died...

Great food and drink, great service, great atmosphere, what more can one say. Unusual restaurant as it is mainly and open air setting so one can look up at the stars, that is if you can see around the huge orange light cups. Fairly small menu, buy everything is very very tasty. From Crying Tiger, to chicken gree curry to... More

Best Thai food I have had here and in the US! This is saying a lot considering my husband is Thai! Absolutely fantastic. The owners (from Thailand) were super nice and the service was perfect. Everything on the menu was delicious and wonderfully prepared. They'll make you extra hot sauce if you'd like.

We were looking for a special place to celebrate our anniversary, we are fond of Thai food, and some of the listings for Black Ginger said it opened at 6:30 (others said 7 PM). They have a take-away service that starts at 5 PM. We found they were willing to seat us by 6:30, and the food was divine. I... More

We have gone to all the 'recommended' places like Maya's, on the rocks, isola, etc but black ginger by far was the best meal we had our entire trip at st. Barth! Now we do love Thai food but the overall experience was great! We were greeted by several people all very friendly. When we ordered I told them I'm... More
