Came here for a casual weekday lunch. Picked the Bombay Beef with saffron rice, garlic naan and papadam. Including a good house red total cost was $20. Good quick service. I will return. One of the better Indian Restaurants in town .

We booked and the table was ready. Service was quick and efficient. I found the venue noisy and had difficulty communicating to the staff. Food was really good and portions large enough. Toilets were a bit far. Overall a pleasant dining experience. Suggest booking as it became busy. Recommended

Cooked by Indian chefs each curry had that depth or flavour only the Blu Ginger can produce. The service... More

I am a huge fan of Indian and had been wowed by some truly fabulous dishes (mostly overseas), so my hopes were high that the the Blu Ginger would have some authentic dishes, made well. Unfortunately we started on a wobbly footing, as the wait time before placing our order was rather lengthy - despite there being a lot of... More

This was our second visit to Blu Ginger and whilst it has lost none of its 'buzz', we found both the food and service considerably better this time. We skipped entrees and my wife ordered two veg. curries whilst I ordered two non-veg. All of them were very good with plenty left over to take home for dinner the following... More

I love Indian food, and Blu Ginger has some great dishes. Loved it so much from the first visit that we went back the following week. Just as happy after the second visit.

Blu Ginger is really worth visiting if you are in Canberra. Excellent and attentive service the whole time we dined. We chose a Aloo spinach tikka for entree, meat special (mutton curry) and Aloo gobi for mains, accompanied by saffron rice, pappadums, dips and garlic naan. Everything was beautifully cooked, tasty and prepared with love. You know they are using... More

I had the Multani Chicken dish along with some Garlic Naan and rice. Chicken was absolutely beautiful. Cooked perfectly and the flavours of the dish were amazing. The Naan was also great. Not too oily, just perfect. I'd go so far as to say the best Indian dish I've had ever. Highly recommended. I'll definitely return.
