Great restaurant. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who is a lover of Pho and in the Delhi area. I had the beef Pho, it was very good. The atmosphere is modern and very upscale. Service was excellent and personal.

My first experience with the Vietnamese cuisine happened at Blue Ginger and it certainly didnt disappoint.
Beautiful ambience, wonderful crew and great food. You can expect a heavy cheque to pay as it in Taj, but if you can spend, it is defintely worth trying.
The starters have to say is truly outstanding and that did fill our appetite before the mains !!

Dear Guest,

Greetings from Taj Palace, New Delhi!

At the outset, we would like to thank you for sparing your time and giving us your valuable feedback.

Thank you for your kind feedback for your experience at the Blue Ginger being satisfactory and particularly your kind words with respect to the ambience, crew and the food which I had communicated to the Blue Ginger team.

I also have noted your comments with regard to the prices at the restaurant which you found to be excessive. Please allow me to assure you that the restaurant prices of Taj Palace are perhaps the most reasonable in comparison to similar hotels in New Delhi. May I also take this opportunity to inform you that we also have a highly successful value meal option specifically designed for single diners which is the Bento Box option.

We have always endeavored to create trust in our guests rather than look at the short term aspect of just money making.

Thank you for your kind patronage of Blue Ginger and look forward to welcoming you back soon.

With best regards,

Taljinder Singh
General Manager

Loved this place as the food is really good. The restaurant is well designed and the service attentive. It makes for an outstanding experience. Only downside, is if you are a wine drinker, expect the usual Taj overpriced poor wines. You think they would know that winesearcher exists so clients can check right there.

The Taj Group 'was' known for its excellence in the Food & Beverages section. However, off late this has been falling a bit. The Blue Ginger at the Taj Palace Delhi opened with a lot of promise - struggling a bit to maintain the same. Food is good but it still is yet to catch the imagination of restaurant goers in Delhi. A bit cold in its treatment of guests. And, again very expensive undoubtedly - which leaves the overall experience a bit under served at the end of the meal.
