Simple setting, superb food. It sounds too easy to be successful, but Black Ginger have proved otherwise on Enmore Road in Newtown. Their dining area is minimalistic and cosy, letting the food take centre stage – and she pulls out a heckuva performance. Vietnamese food done with a few twists and always with acute attention to detail, Black Ginger is among Sydney’s crew of affordable and accessible but outright delicious Vietnamese restaurants. The serving sizes are generous at Black Ginger and many of their dishes are great for sharing, so bring a group, order up a few things and enjoy a few new tastes, like the chef’s special tamarind duck or Black Ginger’s range of inventive rice paper and vermicelli rolls. Classics are done well, though, so don’t branch too far out from familiar favourites like sang choy bao and steamed prawn dumplings, both of which are done extremely well at Black Ginger.
Probably one of the most underrated Vietnamese restaurants in Sydney. Whenever I’m in the area and get a chance to go, I’m here. Highly recommend the Bo Luk Lak with incredibly tender wagyu beef and the Chicken Lemongrass. The staff are great, so genuine and treat you like family.
Black Ginger is brilliant food was superb service excellent especially little Abby We would highly recommend it to others who are looking for a great meal and service at a reasonable price
We first visited Black Ginger, on recommendations of reviews, just one week earlier and loved the food. This time we had guests from the US and we wanted to invite them to join us. I adore Pho, and the Wague beef Pho is outstanding. Rich broth and not overloaded with noodles, with a perfect amount of delicate slices of beef. I am yet to try the Vietnamese pancakes -which are another favorite of mine. The staff are wonderful, friendly, polite, very helpful. I highly recommend a visit for an excellent meal, in simple but very cosy surroundings.
