My partner and I ate here on a Friday night, and yet busy, the staff attended to us promptly. Upon taking our order the staff member made a recommendation of spinach potatoes (vegan), which was an amazing dish! My partner ordered the butter chicken and thought it was quite average (only downside to the night). Both dishes were quite large... More

On their website it is advertised that the restaurant is open until 11pm on Saturdays; it was made clear to us that it was merely false advertising. After making an effort to drive to the restaurant due to its opening hours, we arrived at 10.30pm and were sent out of the restaurant with no apology after they waited for us... More

After having another restaurant mess up our booking for 5, we called and got a table at Blu Ginger. The service and food were fantastic. The staff were friendly and funny, while the food was absolutely delicious. I will return when next in Canberra.

I'm not known as a fan of Indian food - though I've enjoyed some outstanding examples in the past - but I'm always happy to try it. I'd call this run-of-the-mill - nothing outstanding, nothing to complain about; those who enthuse over this style of cuisine can comment more knowledgeably than I. I can enthuse over the lichee/ice cream dessert,... More

You won't go wrong dining out at this modern Indian establishment. It is well priced, offers the usual Indian dishes and unpretentious service. You will get a good feed here. And hey, they will look after you.

Canberra's Indian restaurants are poor cousins of its Melbourne and Sydney counterparts. Time and again we have felt that. However, Blu Ginger is one of the better ones. We went quite late in the afternoon, around 1:45, there were only 2-3 tables which were occupied. The decor was good but reminded us of an Asian restaurant rather than an Indian... More

Another regular for me in Canberra - was driven to write a review as the staff are always very friendly and accomodating, which sets it apart from many other restaurants in Canberra (including notably several other Indian restaurants both North and South side!). Breads and rice are great and I always get the Dal Makhani and other vego dishes. Sterile... More
