One of the few 5 star restaurants in Massachusetts is now gone as of May 2017. Too bad because their signature Butter fish was to die for. It wasn't cheap at $42 for dinner...but those of us in the know would go for lunch and...More

This restaurant has closed for good in Wellesley. Ming Tsai is opening another restaurant Blue Dragon in the Four Point Channel area of Boston. I haven't been there yet, but Blue Ginger was exceptional. I'm sure it did not close because there weren't enough customers....More

We were seated at 6:45 and didn't get out until 9:45. We had to track down our waiter multiple times. No appetizers until 8pm. It was a Thursday night. The restaurant was only 75 percent full. I was assured there was no cilantro in the...More

Having seen Ming Tsai on a few cooking shows, I expected a more refined style than what we received. Also coming from Asia, where east/west style of cuisine has been refined to a very high standard, I was alittle disappointed at what was offered. The...More

Ming Tsai is closing his cornerstone restaurant in a few short weeks. So sad. What a loss. The menu is slightly condensed now but the quality is still exceptional. Leave room for the chocolate sesame mochi donuts with Thai tea glacé (picture attached), or the...More

Good Asian food and tasty cocktails. However, the bar menu is average and generic - totally different than the restaurant's menu. Quite expensive.

Unfortunately, one of the last reviews for this superb restaurant since it is closing its doors. The egg rolls are wonderful with a zesty sauce. Nice bread basket. Sea scallops seared perfectly. Rack of lamb cooked to order. Wonderul accompaniments with variety of beans.ww

Blue Ginger, located in Wellesley, brings urban dining and sophistication to the suburbs. In celebration of its 10-year anniversary, Blue Ginger expanded with a Rockwell Group-designed renovation, creating a chic, feng-shui inspired space with three distinct dining options. Enhancements include an updated main dining room in which to savor Ming's signature East-West cuisine, three private dining rooms, and the new Lounge at Blue Ginger, complete with cozy banquettes and a 10-stool granite bar. An Asian Tapas menu is served in the Lounge, featuring casual, shareable dishes like "Ming's Bings," Ming's East-West take on the burger. "Blue Ginger is unusual, not only because of the food or the room, but because it's a neighborhood restaurant of a type not found too often in the Boston area...those of us who live farther away will just have to travel now that the secret is out." --The Boston Globe *NOTE* Reservations are not accepted for The Lounge at Blue Ginger
