    This proved to be a great night out with friends. We shared three dishes with rice and entrees and it was delicious. Good fast service, a tad noisy but that's because of the hard surfaces. Not a problem for young people but difficult for the older hard of hearing customers. We'll definitely return though, great value for money.

    Food was tasty, especially the butter chicken, and the chicken tikka kids meal was good value. Service was a bit too prompt in the first half of the meal, but then we couldn't get someone to take our payment at the end of the meal!

    We went to this restaurant with my family and my husband almost cracked his tooth as he almost bit into a stone. We brought it to the attention of the serving staff, and they just did not care. I can't even imagine what would've happened if my 6-year-old daughter would've bitten into it or swallowed it. Disgusting food and even worse service. I hope the owner looks at the review and taken an action as itis detrimental to anyone who eats at this restaurant.

    Great food and location. Service was a little slow. We will go back. the outdoor seating is a plus in COVID times. Nothing more to say but have to type 120 characters to post this review.

    The service was prompt and friendly. The food was pretty ordinary. The samosas looked like they'd been cooked a while back and reheated. The lamb shaha(?) sauce was lumpy and a bit unappealing. A bit disappointing as I've enjoyed the restaurant in the past, but maybe it was more than a year ago?

    Very attentive wait staff. Wide variety of Indian meals, with many gluten free options. Very tasty curries however lots of curry but not much meat in each dish ordered. Absolutely loved the atmosphere - there are two options for dining in - either in the restaurant or on the street in a purpose built dining area that gives you the outside in feeling. We preferred to be out on the street in the heated enclosure.

    The restaurant was very busy on an off payweek Wednesday evening which shows how popular it is! We ordered the best vegetable samosa I have ever eaten and the mains were just as good. Very friendly staff who were not intrusive but very helpful. And the price was excellent. Under $80 for two with wine!

    All the mild food we ordered was way too hot. Trying to feed my 18 month old that was hungry and screaming was impossible as all the food was too hot so he could only eat a bit of naan bread. When asked if we could have a small plastic cup or children's cup or even just a small glass of apple juice for my small child this could not be done we could only have a large glass. The food took 1 hour to come out. The staff were walking around with not much idea of what they were to do, we had our plates attempted to be taken multiple times before we had finished eating. Last time we will be going back here.

    Truly superb quality and funnily enough quantity too! The only negative I have to say about tonight's meal, they did not give me enough time to finish my starters, before the mains were placed on the table. When I asked 'why had the mains been brought out whilst I was still eating my starters' the lady just shrugged her shoulders !

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.
