Our group of 8 were treated to excellent meals, fine service, and a table that provided ample comfort. Best food we had in Belfast.

From the minute we rang up to see if a table was available, we were treated to a really lovely night out. The service was fab and the food was amazing. Muscles as a starter were just perfect. I don't normally order steak, because my partner cooks the best ever, but I just fancied it. This was as good if... More

Had a fantastic experience, at the Ginger Bistro. Just decided to take a chance to call in on the basis of a friends recommendations. They were fully booked, but still managed to accomodate us. The service was second to none and the meals were truly delicious. Great wee find! Will definately be back again 👍

We went there on the first evening of our visit. We took a chance, without a reservation, and they were able to seat us at the bar that looks into the kitchen. Our meal was outstanding! It was also great to watch how well the kitchen worked - everyone knew their role and superb meals were put together by a... More

What a place this is, great food, great atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff and not overpriced at all. We had two nights in Belfast and we went to Gingers both nights, that's how much we enjoyed it. We also met the owner who was a really nice guy, in my opinion, this place deserves the many great ratings it receives.

I was part of two couples who went here on a Friday night and this dinner was the best that I have had in years.

When we went, this restaurant was very busy, to the point that it felt like they were slightly understaffed. This didn't show in the service, however. In addition to our great server, multiple staff checked up with us for the duration of our meal. The food was terrific. One of the appetizers we chose was the calamari, which honestly was... More
