This place is just great - the put door restaurant by the pool is such a nice location to eat. The Chinese + indian cuisines are so well made, great taste. But the restaurant is verryyyyyyy priceyyyyy.. Good food at a extra ordinary value.

We loved our dinner here. I had tandoori chicken and my partner a vegetarian dish. It could not have been better. Lovely service and we would go back again when we return to Lilongwe to fly back to Europe.

Not wanting to eat alone I stopped off at Blue Ginger for a takeaway. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and once my order was placed I was ushered to the bar. 15 minutes and 1 drink later my order was ready - chicken tikka masala (hot), veg fried rice and a poppadom. Massive portions served in very handy... More

We used to order takeout from this place quite a bit over the past six months. The first time we ordered we got hooked because the paneer tasted so fresh and everything was just delicious. However, I'm sad to report that the quality hasn't stayed the same. The last two times we placed an order (in June) were disappointing --... More

We enjoyed the food although it is rather pricey for the portions. Great environment and service (the staff was polite).. Definitely a place we want to go again and trying a different meal. Oooh the chilli is memorable

Each year we travel to Malawi and no trip is complete without at least one evening at the Blue Ginger. Food is good, moderately priced and the service is excellent. All in all, you can't beat it. On your next trip to Malawi you will find it on the north side of Lilongwe.

The Blue Ginger is a nice place, with great food and service... It is located between area 43 and area 10 inside a little shopping compound. But there is one friendly advice, please renovate the toilettes...
