“A bit squeeze”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014 via mobile

Went fir dinner. Booked via contact firm but when we turned up they didn't have my booking. Luckily I had my phone so could show them the email. They finally found us a table but they are all very close together so hard to have a decent conversation,as you feel like everybody is listening in as well.
Food is good not exceptional. Peking duck pancakes were chewy and the sauce way too strong so overpowered the duck. The satay were lovely as was the seafood nasi goring. Husband had some salt and pepper squid which he said was just okay.
Staff were great and drinks prices are reasonable.

Dear Nat C,

Very sorry for the mishap with your booking, it was a one off incident, one that I hope will not reoccur. Rest assured even if you didn’t have your phone with you we still would have made a table available; our managers would never have turned you away.

Ginger Moon is a modern Asian canteen and yes our tables on the ground floor are not spaced miles apart, and this works for most, people love the buzz, the hustle and bustle, and watching all that is going on around them. We even have groups of people booking saying they are coming with friends they met at Ginger Moon. We offer a fun, relaxed, casual environment and certainly are not stuffy or formal. However if you have secrets to discuss or just after a more romantic space we do have a 2nd floor on which the tables are spaced very well apart, this floor looks down on the level below and is nice for those who want to be away from the action, many families book this level as well as groups after a semi private space.

The duck is usually melt in the mouth tender, it is a signature of Ginger Moon and we sell hundreds every week, strange for it to be tough, my apologies to you for this. The sauce is a perfect match (a Chinese classic) which is why we serve it, and it is served on the side so if the flavor is too strong for you may I suggest putting less on?

We do hope to see you again.

With kind regards

Dean and the team at Ginger Moon

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014 via mobile

All I can say is the food was fantastic, the service brilliant and the prices were good. A definite place to eat at when in Seminyak. One small criticism would be the rice paper rolls would be better served as a whole instead of cut in half as hard to eat and maybe a little too much dressing in the papaya salad but overall fantastic.

“What a Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

Ate here twice. First time al a carte and second degustation. Both equally good. Make sue you go hungry and try as many dishes as you can. They are all really delicious. A good selection of wine is available by the glass. Save room for dessert.

“What a find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

Trying to find a restaurant that suits all my family's need is nearly impossible but this restaurant succeeded! I was drawn to it by the name at first. Once we sat down I ordered a much needed drink. It was wonderfully presented. From the menu I ordered seafood, my husband ordered meat, my children ordered something child friendly (I think it was similar to pizza) and it was all DELICIOUS! The ambience was terrific. My only regret is we found it on the last day!
