Simply great thai food... It's very difficult to differentiate between thai restaurants as everyone does a green/red/colorful curry with some Pad-thai and within those bounds, if a restaurant is beautifully bringing out those nice chilly lemongrassy flavours - they are doing a good job and Wild-Ginger in Gambier is one of them.... We had their favourite - Lemongrass chicken stir-fry... More

Went with a large group of friends - had to book ahead - restaurant was packed. Long wait for food & worth it as food was very nice. The Pad Thai and any of the stir frys were good. Well worth a visit.

5 of us ate lunch here yesterday-just sticking to the 3 lunch specials on offer-red or green Thai curry or a variety of noodle dishes. Each dish was $12.90 and was more than enough for a good eater for lunch. Food was fresh, tasty, well cooked and service was excellent. I'd love to go back!

This would be my first negative dining review but I guess they can't always be good. Very crowded the night I visited so I thought that a good sign. When our meals arrived there was one dish we had not ordered. Took staff a while to understand & return it to kitchen. We had ordered Prawn Pad Thai along with... More

Our visit to Wild Ginger had been flagged as something to look forward to during our overnight stay in Mount Gambier. The menu looked good and the reviews were pretty solid. My motivation for writing a review has always been driven by events that move me. Until this visit, I don’t think I’ve really written a review that cans a... More

The meals were lovely, staff were bubbly, friendly and efficient. Meals were very large with far too much food, although very enjoyable.

We really liked it and I had to roll back to our hotel. It is a nice place. I would have gone for 4 star but they were little bit hurried for my liking. I would go there again if in that neck of the woods.

I shared a beautiful meal farewelling my friends here last week. the food was beautiful as usual but i awoke in the middle of the night with a migraine and sick as a dog. Unfortunatley I am allergic to MSG and suffered for 5 days before it left my system. Shame Shame Shame it was my favourite Mt Gambier restaurant.
