Wild Ginger is all about hype. Food is mediocre and not memorable. I had to be reminded by my wife that I had dined at the Seattle location years ago. Nothing memorable. Went to the Bellevue location last night and still nothing memorable.
Order the small plates and do it family style and you can sample a lot of food. Price was fine as was service, avoid the traditional alcohol mark up and you can feed 4 with dessert for under a hundred.
The problem is that the food is just not very good, not bad but nothing I would go back for. Asian fusion has come to mean americanization of Asian food through excessive use of salt, sugar and sauce. If your looking for ambiance, drinks and average american asian cusine then this place is for you.
New to the area and went there friday night after New Years. A great place. Bartender really friendly and welcoming. Server was prompt and professional. She gave great recommendations. Food was very flavorful and fresh tasting. Portions were ample. We didnt leave with a lot of left over cheap food in boxes, but we weren't expecting that.
Highly recommend this to people who appreciate good food.
I recently ate at WG for the first time since hearing about how great it was for years. Finally, I got my chance. The place is beautiful and in a great location. The service was quick; our food was served within 10 minutes of ordering. The waitress was not very friendly, but I’ve noticed that with many Asian restaurants. The food wasn’t as good as I expected. It was OK. I thought the prices were too high for the small portions. Definitely overrated!
The ambiance and atmosphere were very upscale and metropolitan, but inviting. The service was good and so was the food. My only complaint would probably be that it was a little bland for being Thai and Asian Influenced. I will say however, that it was reasonably priced. 2 appetizers and 2 midday meals for $35.00 with tax. Definitely try WILD GINGER!
I read all the reviews and I couldn't believe that no one mentioned the Triple Door. The Triple Door is a beautiful theater that we go to on the average of once a month to see live music. The reason I mention it here, the Menu for the Triple Door is from the Wild Ginger (same building).
Catch a show, order the Peppered Scallops and Green Beans and you won't be disappointed! And don't forget dessert!
The service staff was very friendly and allowed me to select my table. The restaurant was clean with well-chosen lighting. My order was taken promptly and the meal was delivered with only a short wait.
The meat quality was poor and it was badly prepared. I ordered the duck, and it turned out to be a plate full of gristle and greasy cartilage. The kitchen staff had randomly sliced the meat into bite-size pieces, most of which contained one or more inedible surprises. It was bad enough that I did not finish it.
I paid the bill but I shall not return.
