Decided to go here for the first night of our honeymoon. We got the beef curry and a few other dishes which we all found to be underwhelming. Given all the reviews on the beef curry I was really excited, but I found I paid way too much for a subpar cut of beef in a bland curry. Everything else... More

Yann H, Manager at Black Ginger, responded to this review

Dear Patrick, Thank you for reviewing Black Ginger. We take note of your comment. Our signature Thai restaurant is not competing with other local venues outside our resort since we do not offer the same service and our food is oriented to a rather Phuket Thai cuisine. It has been highlighted that sometimes spiciness of our dishes is not up... More

We visited the The Slate and the very nice manager showed us the property and rooms which was very impressive. We then headed out to have dinner at the Black Ginger.

A must try. We tried this as we were staying at The Slate. The place is beautiful. It's in the middle of a lake. To reach it there is a platform with cushioned benches which the guy pulls along with a rope. The decor is dark sophistication. Staff are efficient and friendly. We tried the tasting menu. Four courses. All... More

Blue Ginger is an amazing restaurant at the Indigo Pearl iPhuket. This is a must for sensational Thai food with even better ambiance.

Beautiful Thai food and a sleek, black laquered interior. Arriving across a man-made lake is quite theatrical. The portions though are quite small and prices quite high, so it's an expensive dining option.

Still feel like James Bond. Surely one of the most sophisticated / beautiful entrances to a restaurant in the world. ... and the thai food is magnificent. Next time we will sit at the bar. I will have a martini, shaken not stirred.
