Blue ginger is a quaint little restaurant tucked away from the major touristy areas. The service was quick and friendly. We had been told about blue ginger from a local colleague so we decided to check it out. The food was flavorful and actually Singapore...More

Firstly the decor in this restaurant is plain and minimalist. The service was very quick (from arrival, a 2 course meal with drinks over and done with in 45mins) and the waitress spoke poor English which is unusual in Singapore. We had difficulty in making...More

Blue Ginger stands out on Tanjong Pagar Road by virtue of not being a Korean BBQ restaurant. Instead it serves high quality Peranakan food in pleasant surroundings. Average prices for mid-level Singaporean restaurant. The beef rendang and sago dessert were particularly good. Restaurant is only...More

I like Peranakan food. The Old China Cafe in KL is a favourite place to eat, reliably good and atmospheric in a way few Malaysian restaurants seem to be. But it's a few steps behind Blue Ginger. I wouldn't say absolutely everything was perfect about...More

I first went to the blue ginger a couple of years ago. It was not a standout then and it was unlikely I would've returned, except that my friends in Singapore wanted to try it. Tonight the food was simply boring, nothing special and overpriced....More

Great alternative to ubiquitous Chinese street food fond all over the City. A sty and spicy - worth checking out but not that cheap!

It's a reliable place to go to for peranakan food but portions are small (but that's quite the norm for peranakan food). It was a long time since I have been, mainly because for the portions and the food quality, it's expensive in my books....More

Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
