We have visited over a number of years and are now treated like family - a lovely experience. You won't be disappointed.

Blue Ginger doesn't look that much either outside or inside, but it really shines in the quality of the food. The menu is extensive and features the standard Indian dishes, plus some ones that were new to me. My vegetarian partner was well catered for too. Food was evidently cooked to order, because it took a while for dishes to... More

We went to Blue ginger for valentines day, the staff were so welcoming and not pushy at all considering how busy they were! All the attention to detail was there and the night was finished off by giving each couple a box of chocolates! Will definitely be returning the food was fresh and quick served with the best customer service!... More

Great place to experience Indian food. The food is freshly cooked and really tasty. The service is second to none. They make you feel welcome and treat you like old friends. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. Always best to book at weekends as very busy.

Blue Ginger is the best Indian in Bedford in my opinion. The food is always great. The staff are great. Lots of choice and always willing to accommodate your requirements. Spotlessly clean with nice table linen and good decor. Not too large and flexible seating for larger groups.
