Have been a guest since it open on Western Avenue. The white wine list is such a wonderful way to enjoy its southeast Asian food. Great wine people who really work hard to make it happen. Food is wonderul. The Patagonia shrimp were to die for.

We are regulars, but had a friend join us who is celiac. It appeared effortless for her to dine with us, they made it easy. She loved the curry!! Also the wine list and service are always great.

I have always enjoyed eating here.Maybe not the most authentic or the best Asian fusion but always a solid choice and the decor is nice too.

This is a great restaurant- must try. It's great for group, dates or just a family dinner. Lots of options and a fun / cool atmosphere. It does get busy, so if you're looking for a quiet evening, this might not be for you. It's not cheap, but right in the middle of a typical restaurant.

We had a variety of dishes, which we shared. The spring rolls were bland but the peanut sauce more than made up for it. A spicy noodle dish was good, but the table favorite had to be the Pad Thai noodles. Everyone loved them.

Overall we enjoyed our meal here before we checked out highway 99 blues bar. Definitely worth a visit if you like blues. Good, but inconsistency let the meal down. The tartar and pork satay were the best part of the meal. The mains were a little dry and lacked flavour. Especially the pad Thai. However big thumbs up to the... More

My bride and I recently went to Wild Ginger for dinner prior to a show at The Triple Door downstairs. We have done this as date night for years. The food portions have been cut in half yet the prices have risen. I couldn't believe the Hanoi tuna large portion that came out with 8 small slices for $33. On... More

I have been to both their bar happy hour and dinner. Both were great, just depends on the occasion. Was a little pricey, but you definitely get what you pay for as the food is delicious.

I have loved Wild Ginger for years. As in 18? Years. A long time. That entire time seven elements soup was a staple. I live in Massachusetts now so rarely do I get to get back to Seattle. In February 2017 a work opportunity to travel to Seattle arose and despite being pregnant and having two kids at home, I... More

Enjoy the combinations of flavors and the fusion of Asian and American cuisine. They have a nice variety of quality foods which are beautifully presented. Our waiter was helpful in suggesting dishes based on conversation with him. The place gets busy so make reservations or go for the Happy Hour.
