“A great Indian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

We were tired and weary but once seated in this busy restaurant the tirdeness dissappeared. We were served quickly and the food and wine were both delicious. Excellent night out

This was my first Indian Restaurant i have been to.
I was very pleased with the service, drinks and yummy food!
I made sure i ordered Mild and it was just right!
We were full and couldnt fit in anymore and the bill was only $60 including drinks.

“Nice food, we get takeaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

The food is good bit not quite the best Indian I've had. We get takeaway occasionally but I've never had any inclination to eat in. It seems to be a very noisy place when busy, echoes like a tin shed. Worth a try.

“Good Food and Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

I've been to Blu Ginger a few times now, mostly in groups and the latest was as a couple. While the restaurant is in a cavernous space, the acoustics are pretty good and it has nice decore.

We dined at 8.45 on a Saturday night and the restaurant was almost full. Although we did not have a booking, we were politely greeted and promptly seated. The waiter took out order and we were served entrees within 5-10 minutes. We had the Aloo Spinach Tikki that was accompanied with 3 types of dipping sauce and it was delicious.

For mains we stepped out side our normal very spicey selection and tried something different. We had the Gosht Rara (lamb) and the Sagwala Beef. While there were OK, they lacked a great depth of flavour.

For the entree, two mains with rice, a glass of wine and a beer we paid $75 with a tip.

All in all, a reasonable meal, good service and nice surroundings.

“Bring something to eat - a looooong wait between order and sevice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

The ambience was good, and the menu has some interesting picks along with favourite standards.

Although only 25% full, it took an hour from ordering until the the first dish was served. Thank goodness for the tablecloth - we ate most of it while waiting and began considering the paint on the walls

Although once it arrived the meal was excellent but didn't outweigh the incredible time waiting.
