We love this place. Excellent food and service is brilliant. The owners of the restaurant make every effort to make you feel welcome and great you as an old friend despite only seeing you once before. If you don't visit here you are missing out.

Just enjoyed another fabulous meal. Haven't eaten in for a long time, but far surpasses anwhere else around. Whatever your usual preference is, put it aside and order the chicken momo starter. It's to die for. Great food and even better hospitality. They make sure you leave thinking you were the only ones there.

Popped in to get my takeaway was quick and no wait needed accurate time frame given for collection. Always friendly faces in there and great quality food. Tastes just as good on my sofa as it does in the restaurant. Always first choice on my takeaway list!!!!!!!!

Well it's over a year since our last visit (unfortunately) but still the same high standards. Diners are treated as rather than customers and it is an experience rather than just going out for a meal. We have visited over a number of years and are now treated like family - a lovely experience. You won't be disappointed.

Blue Ginger doesn't look that much either outside or inside, but it really shines in the quality of the food. The menu is extensive and features the standard Indian dishes, plus some ones that were new to me. My vegetarian partner was well catered for too. Food was evidently cooked to order, because it took a while for dishes to... More

Nice enough place, pretty typical High Street venue , nice welcome and clean and tidy restaurant. We chose an average meal of Chicken Madras and Chicken Tikka Marsala with Pilau rice ,vegetable curry, spinach bhaji and onion bhaji - poppadoms to start and naan bread with the main course. The Tikka didn't appear to be marinated, tasted pretty bland .... More

We went to Blue ginger for valentines day, the staff were so welcoming and not pushy at all considering how busy they were! All the attention to detail was there and the night was finished off by giving each couple a box of chocolates! Will definitely be returning the food was fresh and quick served with the best customer service!... More

Great place to experience Indian food. The food is freshly cooked and really tasty. The service is second to none. They make you feel welcome and treat you like old friends. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. Always best to book at weekends as very busy.
