I had heard about this restaurant from friends, and it has been going for a long time, so I hoped it would be good. We came at lunch on a weekend, but there was only one other table full - not a good sign. The food came quickly and portions were generous with a good price for the lunch specials.... More

I had heard fantastic things about this restaurant so decided to try it out for lunch. While the service was good the place was freezing cold. So cold that I kept my coat on. I don't know if this was because they had just opened. The food was marginal and over sauced. All in all I would not return. There... More

Consistently good service and good food. We typically order the bento box lunch feature. There are a good variety of choices to add to the basic package. We enjoy different combinations each time!

My wife and I paid the Blue Ginger Restaurant after almost 2 years of absence! There are lots of similar Sushi restaurants now in our area. We live in the South End of the city so it's quite a drive for us to reach their place. Anyway, I got a 50% Off coupon from the mail ( Island Daily Deals)so... More

Good location in North Nanaimo. Nice clean/modern ambiance. Lots of items on the menu. Food was excellent and very fresh. Service was also very good. Salmon and tuna were top picks.

Great Service - Food was fresh - high quality and seasoned very well. Reasonably priced. I still wonder what the structure was prior to being a restaurant ???

Blue Ginger is one of my favourite restaurants in Nanaimo. Went for dinner last night. Service was great, the waitresses are always so friendly and food was excellent. We ordered four items - they didn't quite come in the order we had hoped but that was fine - it was all delicious. We had the vegetable tempura, the Seafood Popsicle... More

Late lunch started with TomYum soup, was very good and as close to authentic as we have had. Cannot comment beyond the rice and noodle dishes but the ones we have tried are good and more than adequate portions. Service also good, prices are reasonable, works for us.

Great variety of Asian dishes and sushi. Seafood popsicle was different and tasty. Sauces complemented food. Service was friendly.

We love Blue Ginger and we love Island Daily Deals! Great food as per usual. Last time we tried the Seafood Popsicle and LOVED it, so this trip hubby and I got one each. Great value at $5.50 each. So big! For the main course we shared the Bali Nasi Goreng. I'd never had it before but it was delicious.... More
