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.

The food at Wild Ginger was very good, but not amazing. I had been there many years ago, and I remembered I liked it, but I didn't enjoy it as much the second time. The ambiance was nice and lively and the service was good, and we could walk to it from our hotel so that was a plus.

Family gathering for an 18 year old birthday. Matthew (our server) was outstanding. He put a meal together for us that was enjoyed by all. We were three generations at the table. The youngest and the grandparents truly enjoyed a wonderful dinner. Good variety of textures, spices, and great looking dishes.
The birthday dinner was memorable for all.

Wild Ginger is on our must-do list in Seattle. We desperately need you to add a location in Sacramento, as the commute to Seattle is a bit much! We had dinner 2x in three days this time. We look forward to next trip.

The food tends to be a bit on the spicy side overall for me, more so than most Thai restaurants I go to, so if you know that going in, that would probably help to know. Our server was quite subdued and not particularly personable but was not unpleasant; it just would have been nice to have someone more engaged ... although maybe she was just having a rough day, who knows? Anyway, overall the ambiance was nice; I've eaten here before when attending an event at the 5th Ave Theater and it was a bit better the last time so I'm thinking because of the holiday (July 4th) it might have been an off day. Overall enjoyed and would recommend!

Our martinis were barely colder than room temperature and had an odd sweet taste. Unusual for Belvedere with olives.
We ordered duck. It was cooked perfectly and the plum sauce was excellent, however the duck was extremely salty.
Our server was engaging, accommodating and comped the cheesecake we shared for dessert for the birthday we were celebrating.
All in all it was a bit of a disappointment after friends had told us how great the place was.

The waiter spent most of our meal discussing basketball with the neighboring table. Luckily the bus staff picked up his slack bringing our delicious food and clearing our plates. The food was exceptional so happy with our evening

Our waiter was amazing and very sensitive to the time as we were headed across the street to hear the Mormon Tabernacle Choir perform at Benaroya! He kept us on task as we would have talked, and talked, and talked and never gotten our food ordered. Amazing food!!!

Flying through Seattle, we had the opportunity to spend the evening and picked Wild Ginger for dining. One of my favorite restaurants in Seattle. Didn’t disappoint the family. Shared plates and quick service made the grandchildren happy.

In the past it's been excellent, and the 7-Flavor Beef is still delicious--and two of us really enjoyed the Mango Palmer drink. However, the Spicy Mango drink burned the mouths of 3 in our group. They had to ice their mouths! We are fairly adventurous diners but this was way too spicy! Same with the Salt and Pepper Squid special and the Cambodian Chicken--we couldn't finish either dish. Our server seemed overworked as we didn't see him very much, and when we did he seemed really rushed. He was trying, but it was frustrating for us. Hosting, busing and water service were all great and very attentive. And lovely setting, as always.

Ok usually I do not leave a review but Wild Ginger has consistently been a great restaurant I have gone back to time and time again. This time however food was definitely a miss! Service was a miss! We were there for our anniversary and they gave us the worst table in the restaurant! Decided to eat at the bar as at least it had a better atmosphere!

Food was Tasty, well presented & overall service was great. HOWEVER you will pay over 25 dollars per item for what is essentially servings that could fit entirely inside a cup of noodles container. Took 3 items plus (non alcoholic) drinks to fill me and my partner up costing roughly $120. Food tasted great thought and was presented quite artistically and had rich flavor and carried hand picked ingredients. I would recommend the Lamb Chops and the Princess prawns. If you are fortunate enough to take home 70k a year (after taxes) it is Deffinetly worth it for the artful flavorful cuisine, however if you are looking to fill your stomach I'd go to the chipotle a block away.

It was a friend’s birthday we were celebrating. It was recommended by a coworker. The food was good and price is reasonable, however, the service was sub-par. We were being served by 4-5 different people who didn’t seem to be communicating about our orders. Service was a little slow as well. Overall, maybe recommend it for some good asian fusion dishes.

Great princess prawns and seven spice beef. However, gelato desert was NOT good😠. They just need to call it what it is - over sweet ice cream. It is in no way gelato.

Our first time back in 10 years and we were celebrating my Son's 18th birthday. We ordered the seven flavors beef (ended up getting another order since everyone loved it so much), the chicken and lamb satays (chicken was good, lamb was a little fatty), the duck (very flavorful and fatty as expected), and chicken pad thai (my husband ate the entire oversized serving). Wish we had room for dessert... They didn't really do anything "extra" for my Son's birthday, but that's OK. A very good experience for our once-in-a-decade visit.
