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.

  • "Excellent food, wine and service. Waiter made great recommendations for paring glasses of wine with the various dishes and was very helpful in terms of timing food orders to allow a good sequence of small plates. I recommend highly. I have also recommended it to friends, all of whom enjoyed Wild Ginger very much."

  • "The food and service are incredible. Its only part of the reason Wild Ginger is my favorite restaurant in Seattle. The menu is creative and full of spice and flavor. There is a favorite dish of mine that was taken off the menu, however, upon request they will still make it. The management team are responsive, attentive and caring. That's what makes this restaurant standout and why they have continued to do incredible business for over 20 years."

  • "The only thing we enjoyed were the apps! All of the entrees had the same sauce. Noodles, shrimp, green beans -all had the same sauce. Sauce overload!"

  • "First time as this restaurant and I must say it was great. Service was excellent and the food was even better. We will definitely come here again next time we visit Seattle."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "We had green curry sea bass, chili green beans, black pepper scallops, all of which were cooked to perfection. The heirloom salad was fabulous and the wine list impressive. Finishing with coconut gelato (him) and blackberry and vanilla sorbetto (me) was divine. Highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "I visited Wild Ginger for the first time in 2005. I was introduced to the term "Asian Fusion" at that time. For me, that nom de plume will always mean Wild Ginger. Unique curries, great apps and a fantastic coconut gelato."

  • "Just the two of us so not too many dishes to report on. The duck was terrific and the Hanoi Tuna was super terrific. Service was foirst rate . Noise levels moderate but no problem hearing as the high wooden booths are good sound insulators. They were having a special on Reislings so we each had a glass of the Leitz. Very good. My wife is gluten intolerant and the server was very knowledgeable about dishes that were oaky for her -- and those to stay away from. all in all a very good experience and we would most definitely return."

  • "I've eaten Thai food in many different cities, so I think I can fairly review this restaurant. The ambiance is definitely far above most Thai restaurants, as most are casual settings. Wild Ginger has taken the food and placed it in more luxurious digs. But those luxurious digs come at a price. For dinner we ordered 4 dishes for 4 people, a bowl of rice, and 2 glasses of wine. No desserts, no appeitzers. The bill was about $100. The ingredients were superior, but even the Thai people would cringe at the price!!"
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "We have always enjoyed our time at Wild Ginger, but having never been there on a Sunday we were very surprised about no valet parking. My husband had a knee replacement and we chose to come there because of the easy walk for him at this juncture of recovery. Much to our surprise there was no valet. Also, we were sad the Thai noodles weren't on the menu, however, totally understand why they weren't."

  • "Enjoyed a great dinner with a close friend visiting from out of town. Early on I'd let the waiter know I don't get a chance to go out sans kids often, and that I had a friend visiting, so we wanted to enjoy our time. I'd been to WG before so knew the experience and awesome food. Our server did a great job of allowing us time between apps and meal. I did not feel rushed at all. Server suggested perfect number of dishes to order. While we loved every dish we ordered, we both wondered if we should have ordered one more dish since the ones we had were so good (we would have eaten too much, though). I love this place."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "What a meal! We had cocktails: a Pomatini and a Bittersweet martini. Delicious! The chicken sate was good but the young mountain lamb was outstanding. Seven flavour beef and Kung Pao chicken followed. Our waiter suggested a green bean dish - another hit! A glass of the Prum Kabinett Riesling was perfect. It was a special occasion and a special meal."

  • "My father and his friend were in town to celebrate their joint birthdays. Neither had ever been to Wild Ginger, one of our favorite places. Our waitress was great about explaining the menu, recommending items and even told us that we had ordered too much food and suggested we get smaller orders of two of the entrees since we were doing it family style. We had a great meal, then at the end of dinner she brought out ice cream and flourless chocolate cake because she had noticed they were opening gifts. Top notch as always!"

  • "My husband and I celebrated our 22nd anniversary at Wild Ginger. We had a great meal with a super nice and attentive server who really cared that it was a special evening for us. This restaurant made a special night spectacular."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "This is a wonderful restaurant and the staff is very attentive. Food is available in 2 portions 5 or 8oz sizes. Great for ADULT family style dinning. 2 apps, 4 entrees, and 2 sides and the 3 of us walked out feeling comfortably full. Price is $$$ but we thought it was worth it."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "We reserved online, with a request for seating without a long walk, due to one diner's disability. That was fully respected. The host staff was pleasant and efficient. The FOOD ... we ordered two noodle dishes and the seven flavor beef ... The dishes were a good size; plenty for the three of us, with plenty of left-overs. The beef dish was very good, I understand all the recommendations. The two noodle dishes were very tasty, but we found the pad thai to be on the dry side. The highlight of this visit was the WAITER. Rats, I did not note his name, but he was EXCELLENT. He was warm, informative, attentive, but never intrusive. He really knew his menu and did his job well."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Had an enjoyable dinner. There were 6 of us. In order to get a rounded taste for the various dishes, it is good to have a least 4 people (1 or 2 people can not get a proper sampling). We had 2 half portions and 5 full portions. This allowed us to get a rounded taste for what they had to offer. The Duck was excellent as was the Chow Foon Noodle dish and the 5 flavored Beef dish. The shrimp dish was tasty, but light. The only dish we did not like was the Salmon dish. We were surprised as the Salmon has been outstanding in Seattle."

Came back to Seattle for this weekend and for my surprise wild Ginger Rest. Was open now in a magestic new location with the same amazing great food and great cuality of service. Wild Ginger send me home with a great sperience about Seattle and his wonderful food and dinning!... Thank you!... Can't wait to comeback."

  • "My wife and I go here every time we visit Seattle (twice a year), and it is her favorite restaurant. I reserved a table for the night after we got married, and explained as such in my Open Table reservation. While the food was exceptional, as it always is, the service was below par. Despite knowing this was our special meal after getting married, we were sat at a table with a poor view, our waiter made no comment, and after taking our order paid no attention to us. We even asked for a photo, and after saying he would return, failed to do so, only swinging by the check on his way somewhere else. We'll come back for the food, but we feel very hurt that we didn't even receive the typical level of service for our special wedding dinner."

  • "Kung Pao Chicken, 7 flavor Beef, Chilean Sea bass w/ peanuts and herbs. If all asian restaurants were this good we would all eat asian food all the time. The restaurant is cavernous, there must be 100 tables, we were at table 64, but we had no problem relaxing into a pleasant early dinner. One way to handle wait service is for it to be seamless; not too much attention, not too little. Our waiter executed this well. The food arrived quickly and we were able to enjoy dinner without feeling rushed. Some Seattle restaurants have left us feeling like we were not hip or cool enough to be there, a bad taste, when even the tastes are good. Not so with Ginger, we felt welcomed and taken care of."

  • "We had a great visit to Wild Ginger. We went on the very early side, as we had an engagement at 6:30, and our waiter was extremely friendly and energetic. The potstickers were so good that we both felt afterwards that we could have kept them coming all evening long. Of the other three dishes we ordered, the black pepper scallops were spectacular, the Kung Pao chicken addictively good, but the Pad Thai only average. We were both overly full by the time we finished (couldn't stop eating that Kung Pao chicken!), so I'd recommend two small dishes rather than three (the number suggested by our waiter) if you're having appetizers and don't want leftovers, as even their small dishes are quite substantial in size."

  • "have to have one meal there every time I visit. Great for group dining. Good atmosphere. Last trip my waitress was not very good or I'd give it 5 stars. Food is good, location is great, price is fair, portions fill you up more than you'd think."

  • "I have been to both the Seattle and Bellevue restaurants, and both serve some great Asian-fusion cuisine. Service was great at my last outing in Seattle, very attentive , and with a great attitude. The Potstickers as an appetizer were excellent, and I had the Kung Pao Chicken with brown rice. The plate was good for one and a half people person, so if sharing, you may need to order more for two. Have also hosted group events in Bellevue, which has a great facility for larger groups. Would definitely recommend"

  • "Bit of a large place, but, they do an excellent job all around. It is seperated into roons, so, feels smaller than it is. Food was quick, the servers are very well trained, any emoty plate was picked up by the first staff that walked past our table. Food was quite good, especially considering the number of diners they have. Very well priced."
