Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Gorgeous atmosphere in this warm rustic venue with high ceilings and beautiful vintage 70s globes. Our final course of yellow fish curry was delicious but our two starters were very disappointing - we paid $12 for dumplings and received just two small ordinary dumplings with no dipping sauce. Then a chicken san choy bow which was ok but nothing to write home about. The serves were all on the small side and it felt there was a lack of generosity coming from the kitchen. The wait staff however were lovely - very friendly and accommodating.

We had dinner in Tonic & Ginger, and the room is beautiful, the food was sensational, with soem amazing vegetarial dishes, and the fish curry and beef rendang were also awesome. One member of our group has a variety of dietary requirements, and she had her own menu, clearly labelled, and felt very well looked after. The staff were fantastic. We had an awesome night, and the value was exceptional!

We arrived for a romantic dinner (first away from our baby) and the atmosphere definitely hit this brief. The food was absolutely delicious, service was great also, the food and drinks came out quickly. The only things we would say is it’s a little more on the expensive end for dining so if you’re not prepared to spend the money, don’t go. Also we were seated quite close to the couple next to us so it was a little distracting. But other than that, our experience was amazing and we’d love to come again, maybe sitting upstairs would be fun!

Our wedding celebration at Ginger and Tonic was perfect. Jenny provided impeccable service, and Jess took great care of us throughout the evening. The food was delicious with excellent presentation and timing between courses. Their service made our special day even more memorable. Highly recommended!

Have been to this restaurant several times and it never fails to impress. One cannot go past the Fire Cracker Cauliflower which surely has to be a signature dish. All dishes we had were very good but the Fragrant Yellow Curry has to be the best curry I have had quality and texture were amazing, a must try dish, Slow Cooked Pork Bites also excellent. Everyone we take there is always impressed with both the standard of the food and the service.

Atmospheric building with an intriguing past meets delicious food with knowledgeable waitstaff. The rib eye is the pick of so many tasty dishes. It's well priced for the quality.

Feels very special. Excellent food. Full of wonderful Asian flavours. Seemed busy for a Thursday night but that only points to its success. Booking a must I would say.

We've been wanting to try Tonic + Ginger for about six months, but its always fully booked and we live over an hour away! We finally made it there this week for a mid week lunch and we were amazed! The service was outstanding, food amazing and the staff were genuinely friendly and helpful with cocktail and food recommendations. It was a lot more expensive than our usual venues, but you could easily taste the quality of the ingredients and was well worth it. We will definitely be back when we can!
