A word from Wild Ginger Seattle
The food at Wild Ginger spans the Pacific Rim from China to Indonesia. We pride ourselves on offering traditional dishes from these distinctive regions and insist on house-made ingredients. Chefs make spicy chili sambals, fresh coconut milk, delicate egg noodles, and our pungent oyster sauce all from scratch. To achieve the sublime flavors of the East, there is no substitute for the time-honored customs of these rich and ancient cultures.
*reservations for parties of 7 or more, please give us a call at 206-623-4450.

  • "Great food! Servicer was very knowledgable of all the food and the wines they had to offer. Would surely go back when in Seattle again!"

  • "Wild Ginger never disappoints! The food is awesome and the service is (or at least has been for me) perfect!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Have never had a bad meal here. We shared smaller plates and had qute a feast. The mussels prepared Cambodian style were fantastic, in fact we kept the broth and mixed our rice in with it. Vietnamese chicken wings were crisp and flavorful, Panang beef curry excellent and Thai noodles plentiful ( we did the "small" order which was anything but. An altogether great dining experience"

  • "I haven't dined at the Wild Ginger for at least a year. I thought the food was fantastic, but the service was ok. I thought the waiter was very slow on coming back to check on our meal and when we were served our food I had mentioned the rice. The person who was bringing us our dinner, was rude when I had asked about the rice with our meal. I also had to ask for our check and that was also slow in receiving. With so many options to dine in Seattle, I wouldn't come back anytime soon."

  • "Fastest and best service I've ever seen. Excellent food. Interesting selection. By getting 2 small entrees, pad thai, a side vegetable, and tea, we had plenty of food for 4 people costing $80 total (including tax and 20% tip)."

    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "This is a great place to change it up and get away from the gastro-pub scene. We loved the family style main courses, all 6 of us got to try so many dishes. And the cocktails kept in the spirit of the rest of the menu, the spicy mango got high marks from the whole group. Finish of with aromatic hot tea and sorbet, we all had fun."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Been to this restaurant probably 40 times over many years! Recommended it, took people! Always consistently good flavors! Amazing if you love garlic.. I do! Definitely fell short on our most go to item.. Green papaya salad! So sad! Hope they find there way back to the old presentation! This one was rugged! They graciously took care of the salad however. Does this make it ok though?"

  • "My girlfriends and I went there for lunch to celebrate a birthday. It was quick and easy getting seated with our reservation. Service was great and the food was fabulous as usual. They are very consistant whether they're at full capacity or not and if we're a large group or a small party. I always enjoy my dining experience at The Wild Ginger."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Really excellent food and service. The only drawback is the ambiance. You feel a little like you're in a fishbowl. Food was great and we would go back next time we're in Seattle. loved :dumplings, pad Thai, beef 7 flavors, and BBQ prawns"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "The food is absolutely fantastic and the service is great."

  • "wild ginger has a varied Asian menu with a wine list that far excess your expectations for Asian restaurants. The sommelier was very helpful in pairing our wine to the menu selections"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "These days we tend to dine with the over-85 set because we eat out with elderly parents once a week. So service and noise level are big issues for us. Wild Ginger is always outstanding in the food department being one of those places whose creativity and emphasis on fresh and seasonal becomes just what they do. But we had a particularly lovely waitress who managed to take care both of my rather quirky mother-in-law as well as showing humor and experience to us. If I remembered her name, I would single her out for special notice. But she was experienced enough to enhance our meal and yet not become a distraction by her presence."

  • "Food was good but service was off that night. Delicious options!"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Great food, great service, great drinks. I have dined here about once a year since they opened and I still enjoy the experience. Great local spot."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Was told by multiple people that the food here was fantastic. Our party did not find this to be the case. It was okay but certainly not memorable. Nice staff. Noise level really loud."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "We had a great meal and wonderful service. The restaurant was very busy with lots of families at 6 PM."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "We often eat at Wild Ginger before a concert, and it works perfectly--close by, reasonably priced, good food and quick service. My only complaint is that it is a bit noisy for conversation."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Consistently excellent food and service. Its a standby for business lunches and dinners, as well as before events at the symphony, and a long time favorite for family celebrations. At lunch the Seven Elements soup is wonderful. Current non-alcoholic drink - think it was the OMG, was excellent. Service was equal to the food."

  • "I try to have dinner at the Wild Ginger anytime I'm in Seattle. The food is all delicious and well prepared, I have never had a bad meal there. If you're going on a weekend - reserve ahead of time."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "Wild Ginger is located across the street from Benaroya Hall so is a convenient place to eat when attending the symphony. The fact that the food is wonderful makes it a great place to eat at any time."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "The major asset of this restaurant is its close proximity to Benaroya Hall. Otherwise it is a bit overpriced for what you get."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "Great menu and great food. Nice menu and terrific service! We were attending an event at Benaroya Hall. It was just across the street from Benaroya...Perfect! Made reservations online!"
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "With so many other excellent dining opportunities in Seattle, these folks should recognize that good food alone does not guarantee return diners. Restaurant nearly empty during prime time and yet a request to move up our reservation was met with disdain."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "This may be our new favorite restaurant in a crowded foodie scene. The staff is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The menu selections are varied and enticing, and made us want to return with a crowd to sample everything. The room was crowded, but we loved the layout which allowed for easy speaking and not overhearing other conversations - I wish other restaurants would learn that the heavy buzz is not conducive to fine dining. If dining in the summer, try a Riesling - who knew the wine could have such depth and flavor. Thanks Wild Ginger for a memorable dining experience - we'll be back!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "My wife and I really enjoyed our experience at this restaurant from quickly being sat upon arrival to the unexpected outstanding attentive wait staff. The staff was very savvy about their menu and corresponding beverage menu. Our dining preference of small plates and appetizers was paired well with other main entrées as suggested by the staff. We throughly enjoyed our experience and would recommend having a meal here while in Seattle."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Nothing worth coming back for. Dirty menus, long wait even with an 8pm reserve on Sunday evening. Most food served under-heated/cold. Nothing was even good. What a shame....thought this Ming fellow would bring some finesse! Waste of a night in Seattle."

  • "First time in many years returning to Wild Ginger. It was as good as ever. One of my favorite restaurants."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "We dined here on a couple of recommendations,as well as, reviews. 2 out of entrees were pedestrian. Bland and over cooked noodles being the major complaint. The other entrees, one being excellent was the BBQ Shrimp. Ambience is high ceilings, loud and plain. Nothing cozy about the lay out. Lots of families. No art to be seen. Service, however, was excellent though it didn't make for the rest. Too many other great restaurants to dine at to bother returning to this one."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "It was very busy when we arrived but staff took the time to ask how everyone's day has been going."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Fresh ingredients and amazing flavors. I've been coming here for 20 years and they never disappoint."

  • "Abigail = incredible! Very attentive but not over the top. Timing impeccable. Incredibly helpful with selections. Didn't oversell, we left happy, full, not stuffed. Wonderful representative of restaurant. 5 stats for the restaurant. 10 stars for service. We will be back."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "This was the first time I have been here, the food was good, the duck was my favorite dish. We also tried the sweet potato/squash soup, Thai chicken satay, Mongolian noodles, lamb curry and many non-alcoholic drinks. The restaurant had a lot of energy and happiness in it however; it was an expensive nice restaurant. Their dishes are unique though, if we got water instead of the drink we would have saved around $20. Therefore, I would go for special occasions (it was my mom's birthday). The waiter was very helpful and easy going."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Loved this restaurant last time (at least 10 years ago) but this experience was not satisfactory. Had dinner reservations, entered restaurant hostess barely greeted us. Girl took us to table not friendly or helpful. We tried to strike up conversation to get her to smile - wasn't going to happen. The menu not so inspiring as I remember. Now it makes sense when Seattle natives weren't overly excited when we said we had Wild Ginger reservations and they politely suggested other restaurants. Unfortunately a let down and I won't be going back when in town or recommend. Customer service can make or break your experience no matter how good the food is."
