Asian
Wild Ginger has been a staple in the Seattle area since 1989. Our food originates in regions throughout Southeast Asia from China to Indonesia and beyond. 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, our pungent oyster sauce, and more 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.

Great place to get together with a group for a birthday celebration. WG was very accommodating of our group (9 people + a baby). Service was excellent, good experience!

We asked for a wheel chair accessible table in a quieter section if possible and they provided exactly what we requested. The server was friendly and attentive and the food came out in a reasonable time. Unfortunately most dishes we’re quite bland and the Phad Thai was both very dry and tasteless. Unfortunately, all in I would have to say they are over priced and there is better food just down the street.

Despite reservations we were seated in the cramped bar area. The chairs were uncomfortable and provided little back support. The window bench seat had no back support at all. Why not use the same chairs that the rest of the restaurant has? The service was friendly but food came out slow. The potstickers were way too thick and doughy. The butter chicken was tasty. The Naan bread was too thin and very greasy. We felt the meal was sub par and over priced. A big disappointment as we used to love Wild Ginger when it was at the Bravern.

It was an amazing experience for our first time! It was delicious and our shrimp order wasn’t what it was supposed to be so THEY recognized that and made another one for free. We wouldn’t have known never being there before. Will be back for sure!

My food was tasty but I was disappointed from a value standpoint. I had Pad Thai with chicken, but the dish was mostly noodles - very little chicken! Service was friendly but a bit slow.

Usually Seattle is better for food, odd as that is. However, I write this review from Seattle WG a day after visiting Bellevue WG. The food in Bellevue was twice as flavorful, like WG was originally!

Popular restaurant. Food was decent but not the best Thai I have had. The cost for the dishes was reasonable.

I was there for lunch, and enjoyed my entree immensely! Our server was attentive the entire time, without being intrusive. This would be an excellent lunch choice for working people! They will have you in and out in a very timely manner

Papaya salad tasted like hand soap. Was credited back so that was good. Eggplant in one dish was either completely soft or hard as a rock. One tofu dish literally only had 4 half pieces of tofu in the entire dish. Child’s chicken nuggets on the other hand was a huge serving.

All the booths were filled despite having a reservation. We had to sit in traffic or in the bar. We chose the bar where service was slow, food even slower. I will not go here again.

This was our first visit to Wild Ginger. We had Filipe as our server. The service was poor at best. He was not attentive in the least and actually rude. We introduced our party of 4 upon his introduction at the table. He rolled his eyes as if we were a nuisance. I ordered the lobster and prawn dumpling soup as a starter which never arrived. My wife had the Green Curry Chicken which was very good. I had the Seafood Noodle dish that was a special which was lacking flavor. I am a big tipper and this is the first time in a very long time I can remember only tipping 10%. Thinking back at the service level it was too much. All in all not a good experience.

We sat down at 6:50pm and took our order fairly quickly and food arrived quickly but we were hardly checked on at all. It appeared that we were in this blackhole between the restaurant and bar (and we had reservations so we're just stuck there) and we had two servers who maybe didn't know who was taking care of us. We rarely were checked on and finally around 9:30pm completed our dinner and paid. It would have been fine if we were intentionally taking our time, but it was more like we were forgotten about and rarely being served. Very strange, especially which how quickly food arrived.

We went to Wild Ginger hoping to have the Laska soup that we had many years ago. This location did not have it on the menu. So we tried the Lobster Dumpling Soup which was a bit pricy for $15 for a single serving. Our waiter was excellent. He remembered our order and nothing was out of place. We had the dinner size Sea Bass, Bok Choy with only ginger, and the pork satay. They were very good. We don't care so much for garlic nor very spicy dishes, so we had to choose very carefully. The choices were perfect for us. We would go back again but probably not very soon as the dishes seemed mostly spicy or garlicky which don't care for. Again I'll say it again our waiter was outstanding. He checked on us regularly and he wasn't overbearing at all. Our drinks were never empty.

Even after having reservations, they sat us in the the middle with no room to move. We talked to the waiter and he flat out said you can leave if you want. We started to leave and the manager came in and offered a tint table in the corner. We were hungry so accepted that. Then food came but it was either too salty or not enough salt. Complete disaster and waste of $100.

We love their new location in Bellevue (Lincoln Square). Much easier access and parking. And, as usual, everything inside the restaurant was great as well. My two nephews are vegan and they found plenty of dishes that they enjoyed. My wife had Malaysian chicken street satay with a tofu rojak salad and I had lobster and prawn dumpling soup with the Princes prawns. I didn't really look at the vegan dishes but they seemed to really enjoy them.
We will continue to return and return.

Hi, we love Wild Ginger in Seattle and also loved the old location in Bellevue. The new Bellevue location feels more like a medium fast food restaurant. We always felt the Seattle and Bellevue locations of Wild Ginger were elegant and felt upscale. The new location feels very casual. Perhaps this is what you were looking for, but I like the other ambiance if I am paying those prices for dinner. Just my two cents, still love the food!

seven flavor beef was tasty, but could have been more tender. Spicy Green Beans needed more spice, they were a bit pricey. Beer and wine was good.

We have been going to Wild Ginger since it was in it's original location on Western Ave many years ago. Our most recent trip was to the Bellevue location and we were disappointed with quality of the food and most especially the service. We had a group of 8 and while the server was attentive when we first arrived, we felt rushed during our meal. They were clearing our plates before we were finished and also cleared our dessert before we had finished it. The quality of the food was also not the level of what we normally experience. The atmosphere at this new Bellevue location felt more like a chain, such as PF Changs. Will definitely reconsider next time we are in town.

Tasty food! Wild Ginger is a wonderful Thai treasure. We enjoyed the crispy fish, vegi curry dish, and lobster dumpling soup.
