It was not busy but we still felt a friendly atmosphere. Not disappointed at all. Good food at a reasonable price. I get take always regularly from there and enjoyed the restaurant just as much.

Had takeaway Chicken Curry and Vegetable curry - standards have gone down drastically. Eat in town now - shame as could do well if they continued as they did when they first opened

My husband and I love this friendly,intimate restaurant. We come here often and always enjoy the excellent food on offer and the friendly service. Often we are offered a drink on the house to say thank you for our custom. It is well worth the visit. We can always park nearby. It is advisable to book.

Having not visited this restaurant for almost 12 years we did wonder whether or not it was still open. That visit being the last time we visited Bedford RFC. I contacted the restaurant about 10 days before our visit of Sunday 1 May 2016, I am so glad I made a reservation as the place was full when we arrived.... More

We've been visiting Blue Ginger for several years now and have never been disappointed. We mix it up and experiment and the chef will accomodate requests. The staff are always friendly and attentive. I've tended to do reviews on restaurants when we travel as a family but Blue Ginger is a regular family haunt. Enjoy - we do!

Just nice to go out for a curry rather than a take away. Good service and reasonably priced.tasty food but you need to hook in advance as this is a busy weekend place, that says it all :)
