    Ginger Olive is an absolute gem! From the moment we walked in, we were enveloped by a vibrant and welcoming ambiance. The music was perfectly curated, creating a lively yet relaxed atmosphere that set the stage for an unforgettable dining experience. The BBQ chicken and beef ribs were nothing short of spectacular. The chicken was tender and bursting with flavor, with just the right amount of smoky goodness. The beef ribs, on the other hand, were a revelation – succulent, perfectly cooked, and seasoned to perfection. Each bite was a testament to the chef's expertise and passion for quality BBQ. Overall, Ginger Olive has it all: fantastic food, great music, and a warm, inviting ambiance. It's a must-visit for anyone looking to enjoy a memorable meal in a wonderful setting. Highly recommended!

    Nice place, but a bit overpriced for how casual it is. We order the signature tasting platter and nothing special to be honest. The wagyu steak was nice.

    First time patron but will definitely be back. Requested a pre-theatre early dinner, which was no problem. Easy to find and close to the Regent Theatre. The staff were very friendly and amiable; even entertained 12-year old youngsters who are fussy eaters. Nothing was too much trouble - great atmosphere and fantastic service.
