Lovely little place, great service. Food is excellent and at a reasonable price. The Nepalese dishes are lovely and certainly worth a try. Very big portions. You won’t be left wanting after a meal here.
Excellent little restaurant. Great food, great staff, great location. What more could you want?! You might miss this little gem up a small side street in the city but I highly recommend that you pay it a visit. You won’t be disappointed.
Very warm welcome awaits you at Ginger. Central location comfortable surroundings. Food very tasty although not huge portions. Will definitely return when we are visiting again.
Lovely restaurant and truly fantastic food. The service was exceptional and we couldn’t have been made more welcome. Can’t wait to go back here again.
This is a fabulous wee restaurant. The food is delicious and the customer service is top notch. Friendly staff and nice surroundings. If you haven't tried it - you have to. It's a bit of a hidden treasure because it's in a wee side street but now I'm worried the word spreads and it gets so popular I can't get a table! The menu is pretty much what you'd expect from an Indian Restaurant, but there's a subtle difference in the flavours (I assume that's the Nepalese influence) . Love the vegetable pakora (served flat pattie style) and the Ginger rice - nice change to the usual. My Chicken Korma was just yummy and my friend really enjoyed his Bhuna Madras which literally brought tears to his eyes - but in a good way! If you are seeing shows in the Fringe, Ginger is in the perfect location for a pre or post-show meal as it's only a few minutes walk away from venues in Chambers St, Pleasance, Bristo Square and George Square.
A small intimate place with fantastic food and a warm welcome. Our starters were beautiful prepared and presented and all four of us had a different one and all agreed they were excellent. A small word of warning here. If you like fast food this is not for you as good gap is left between courses. We had a good chat while the chef put a lot of time and effort into preparing our equally superb main courses. Again we each chose something different so we gave the small but varied menu a good workout. With starters, mains, 2 bottles of wine, beer and soft drinks the bill came to £100, or £25 per head which is very good value in Edinburgh. With a great combination of location, ambience, staff and food I would definitely recommend Ginger. We will certainly be back.
Just there for a quick dinner pre-theatre but we really enjoyed the experience. It is not a big place so we were glad we had booked a table. The poppadoms and pickles were lovely, and the main dishes and accompaniments were very tasty too. The portions were just right for us (senior citizens) and we ate the lot. Very satisfied with the quality and service. Just one minor issue - we would like to have shared a vegetable side dish but there wasn't much on offer in this respect; although such things were on the menu as vegetarian main dishes.
Just lovely! Restaurant only had a few tables, we were served instantly and the food arrived fast. The server was extremely friendly and took care of us very well, with a few jokes in the mix :) The food tasted great! Serving too much for one person we had to take away. We were given 20% off for the next meal to boot! For 15 pounds pp we had a glass of wine, starter and main with rice sides. Definitely visiting again. 10/10!
All 4 of us enjoyed lovely food at Ginger last night and although the restaurant was less than half-full, we had to wait a while for our dishes to be served - perhaps this means they were all freshly cooked, which makese the wait worthwhile. However, the rice was served a little after the main courses, so that their temperature was lower than it should have been by the time the rice was served. The restaurant could do with having heated trays on the table to keep the dishes at least warm. And we all would have liked dips for the starters to be served in self-service bowls, rather than in tiny splodges served on each person's plate.
Excellent food ,no complaints. Staff polite ,surroundings could do with being looked at ,too bright ,tables cramped together and small with the usual plastic flower! With a bit of care and imagination, ie bigger tables(if we had ordered any more dishes they would not have fitted on the table ) ,tablecloths ,better menus etc this could be a really nice restaurant . Would return again but only because of the food .
