    the range ,from traditional to street food fav's ,provided something for everyone's tastes. Portion size was adequate to ensure a filling experience and ensure everyone enjoyed each dish/offering I regard the Blu as amongst ,if not the best, Indian in Canberra at the moment

    Plus: + The food is tasty (we had Chicken momo, butter chicken, beef curry, railway goat curry, cheese&butter naan, ricex4) + quite friendly staff Minus: + Waiting time is long (we arrive just after 6, and got our starter (1 dish) at around 6.40 @@) + Naan bread is small with that price

    Never fails to disappoint with the food - absolutely amazing. The space itself is rather stark with not much atmosphere. Perhaps some Indian candle holders or similar on the table, and some big pictures on the walls or something just to make it a little more homely.

    Good food but felt they wanted us out as soon as we finished our Mains, we got the Bill even we did not Ask for it and was about to order dessert. That felt not so service minded

    Covid social distancing makes running a restaurant more difficult. We had to wait half an hour for our table even though we booked well in advance, our host was kind enough to give us a couple of free drinks as compensation.

    Excellent food, alcohol perhaps a bit expensive. Would definitely go there again - it's very reliable, and the staff are great. Very pleasant décor and an all-round good feel to the place.

About the restaurant

Treat your taste buds to the culinary delights India has to offer at Blu Ginger. A brightly patterned feature wall, high ceilings and funky light fixtures add to the atmosphere of this Indian eatery. Located on 5 Genge Street, Canberra, pick a table in front of the glass wall overlooking the road – it’s a great people-watching spot as you eat.

Blu Ginger goes through great pains to pick the freshest, locally-sourced produce and combine it with imported, and authentic, spices from the sub-continent. The result? Some of the best Indian food you’ve ever sunk your teeth into. Families who have a hankering for upmarket Indian food or groups of friends will fit in nicely here.

Tender, smoky lamb cutlets take centre stage on the starters menu while a lentil and coconut vegetable kootu is mixed in a deliciously thick sauce that has a surprising kick to it. Don’t expect any bland chicken tikka masalas here either – mouther-wateringly creamy and peppered with capsicums is what you’ll get. Order fluffy garlic naan breads on the side and your stomachs will leave more than happy.
