This is third time we have ordered from the takeaway menu, the food is excellent, service spot on, and we just order over the phone, and it's ready. There is a great variety on the menu, servings are generous and all delicious. If you want to feed a few but want restaurant quality and reasonable price, can't do better. Location... More

The food was tasty and reasonably priced BUT the service was very slow. This could have been because they were very busy and it was a Friday night.

I've eaten here many times, and have always been happy with the taste and quality of the food. However, the most recent visit was a bit disappointing. Five of us were here for dinner. We asked for a number of dishes, some rice, naans, a bottle of wine, etc, etc - all of which were really nice One of the... More

For great curries this is the place. We were a party of 20 so we had the banquet and there as certainly plenty of food. For starters we had tandoori chicken, prawns and fish wrapped in banana leaf. One of us was allgeric to garlic and they made special dishes for her. Nothing was too much trouble. The naan bread... More

There's a great atmosphere about Blu Ginger. For me, a clear indication of how good a restaurant is, is when it is very busy, yet service does not suffer. We couldn't fault the service here, despite the upbeat crowd on a busy Friday night. The food was excellent with a great choice; the wines and beers extensive. I'm only visiting... More

Large and spacious dining area. Attentive staff and good food, well above average. Limited wine list but a very broad choice of dishes. We tried the vegetable platter (onion bajjia, Aloo spinach tikki, palak patha chat) which was delicious as a starter. We then shared a naan bread with Seafood Moily, and the almond pumpkin lamb with plain rice. The... More

This place is VERY popular. The food was great and came out quite quick. Our waiter seemed personable to start, but after they brought the wrong naan and chef sent the extra one back to our table compliments of the house, then the waiter very rudely took it back!!
