Very few private seating options most tables are in the open and right next to another party. Super packed in and VERY loud. Won’t be going back.

This was my first time at wild ginger’s new location. When I made the reservation I mentioned that it was my parents anniversary and they were in town visiting. When I confirmed the reservation I again mentioned the anniversary and asked to send a dessert. No mention at all of the anniversary.

Food was marginal. Not as good as I had remembered from previous experiences in Seattle and at the Bravern. Portions are small and the bill was pretty high. Service was good but lots of upselling.

These factors combined with the missed anniversary and I won’t be back, too many other great choices nearby

Had not been to the Bellevue restaurant since they moved.
Called on the day of to see if my booking could be increased from 2 to 3. Had to change the time to 8pm but no problem at all in doing so.
Arrived at 8 to find no reservation (apparently the change had not been made). The staff at the front desk were very apologetic and asked us to take a seat and as soon a table became available, they would seat us.
We were seated after about 10 minutes and not long after, a waiter appeared with champagne for all of us to apologize for the inconvenience - Apology accepted!!
Service was sensational and efficient and food was amazing (as always).
The new site is a lot smaller, so it seems cozier and I must confess, a little noisy, but not enough to put us off, we'll be back for sure. Just love Wild Ginger!!

What happened to Wild Ginger in Bellevue? Is it the new location? A new chef? ???

I've been a big fan for years, so when it's location moved to Bellevue Way I expected the same high quality food and food offerings.

BIG disappointment. We've eaten there twice in the last few weeks and the food has been beyond oily and very mediocre.

So sad, but I have to take one of my favorite restaurants off my "Recommend List."

Went here for my moms 86 birthday and the staff took care of us very well. While this was our first time going to the new Lincoln South location we’ve been to other locations before and new what to expect from the menu.

For Moms special event they greeted her when we got to the host area. Gave us complimentary champagne and made her smile with a birthday slice of dessert. It was those little things that will make us want to come back for sure! I totally recommend using open table to make a reservation and giving them a heads up for any special event you might have!!

The Bravern location was much better. If we go back to Wild Ginger it will be Seattle only. We had reservations and were sat at a VERY small table in the middle of the room literally 6” from the table next to us. Getting bumped from time to time by busy waiters and patrons walking by us. I understand they are maximizing space but I don’t want to eat with strangers and shouldn’t have to keep my elbows at my side at all times. The food has become very much less vegetarian friendly. We had the spring rolls (good) followed by the tofu salad which was not good. Zero flavor. Service was lackluster as well which was a new spin for Wild Ginger. Overall it was not a good experience although I won’t write off Wild Ginger completely. We just won’t be back to this location.

The manager made room for us with our 2 boys by the window so they could watch snowflake lane. The food was fantastic as usual and we love that they will make everything but the curries peanut free for our son with a deadly peanut allergy. Our boys loved the wild ginger chicken and the potstickers! It was a really nice evening after Santa pics!

We had the Kobe beef satay - juicy, tender and succulent. The beef melts in the mouth. So so delicious!!!
We also had the chicken wings - really good, not greasy and with the right amount of crisp. Reminds me of the chicken wings at Purple Dot.
I had the Malaysian chow fun - it was good and tasted authentic, brought me home (Singapore)
My husband had the Indian butter chicken - the chicken tasted a lil weird, like it was cooked frozen and tasted like the sauce was poured over instead of cooked in the sauce. Don’t waste your money on this one - the Trader Joe’s version tasted better for 1/3 of the price.

It was my mothers birthday and the first time she had been to WG. I expected the exceptional service I have received in the past from multiple visits to the Bravern and Downtown Seattle locations. Sadly, this night I did not receive the same. The food although good, would have been better if it arrived at our table hot without such a long wait between dishes.
The pot stickers were chewy and tasted like they were frozen. The Phad Thai was sticky because it was so cool, same with the chicken wings, they were good, but would have been better hot. The only dish that was excellent and came out hot was the Lamb; that was our first dish. The service was lacking. Our server did not exude warmth at all. We felt as though we were a nuisance. My mother who has an injury, apparently was not moving fast enough to sit down while the server was waiting to place our waters on the table. Her attitude matched the annoyed look on her face. I confirmed the reservation by phone, the night before, the hostess asked what was the occasion, I told her my mothers birthday, she said they'd have cake for her. When our dinner concluded and we were on to ordering dessert, the server asked my mother was it her birthday, she said yes and she wished her a happy birthday, we thought she would bring the cake with the other dessert that was ordered. She did not. I then had to go and ask the manager at the front desk to please bring the cake slice, which was so obvious to my mother that's what I was doing, by then the table had indulged in the other dessert, and then the cake slice came out. After the fact. I don't know what's going on at this new location, perhaps, this was a one off night, but whatever it was, it makes me unsure of my desire to return, especially for a special occasion.

My group was disappointed. I have been to the Seattle location several times and love it, but this location is not up to that level. Maybe trying to hit a lower price point??? The Pad Thai was not recognizable as such, but it tasted "ok". The Peking duck was skimpy and didn't even include the tradition green onions. Plus, we had to ask twice to get our full portion of buns for the duck, and one of our party did not get his meal until everyone else was about done. It all was fairly inexpensive and as I said, tasted "ok"....but not great.

I brought my boyfriend here to the Dim Sum Sunday Brunch for his birthday and it was awesome! We ordered several little plates: the BBQ port dim sum, sticky rice dim sum, pork & shrimp dim sum and pot stickers. We also shared a pot of tea. It was all tasty. The venue was clean and quiet, the service was excellent and it's conveniently located near Bell Square. We'll be back for the Dim Sum Sunday Brunch again.

Food was amazing and our server was wonderful. The starter Chicken Wings were crispy and flavorful. The perfectly cooked Black Pepper Scallops offered a slight kick but not overpowering; the Indian Butter Chicken was rich in flavor, light in texture, and the chicken was juicy and tender; the Ginger and Garlic Bok Choy was crisp and refreshing!

As for dessert, the ube cheesecake and flan were both great!

Fast, friendly, and courteous service. Our server was very helpful in recommending plates that both complemented the other food we selected and that we could share. All together the dinner was a flavorful, memorable meal. Duck, followed by papaya salad and then beef and rice worked very well togther. We would recommend Wild Ginger and also compliment the service afforded us by Nathan.

I went to Wild Ginger for the first time recently with my mother and sister. I generally avoid Thai food, because my husband and one son have peanut allergies, but they weren't with us, so no worries about allergens. Cocktails were good. We started with the thai spring rolls (very good), followed by the fragrant duck, black pepper prawns, and chicken pad thai. I would order all three again, but the black pepper prawns were my favorite - very flavorful and tender. I could have eaten them all myself! The restaurant was a little noisy, but we were there right at the busiest time on a Saturday evening. Staff was very attentive without being annoying. I will definitely be going back with my other two sons as I know they would love it.

The ambiance is not as good as the old location. The server was quick to say hi but slow to return to even take a drinks order, and then the drinks took forever to come. The service did improve later on, so maybe the server was just busy when we first arrived. The food was excellent as always, but I was disappointed that the new menu has very few vegetarian options.
