Wild Ginger has been a staple in the Seattle area since 1989. Our food originates in regions throughout Southeast Asia from China to Indonesia and beyond. We pride ourselves on offering traditional dishes from these distinctive regions and insist on house-made ingredients. Chefs make spicy chili sambals, fresh coconut milk, delicate egg noodles, our pungent oyster sauce, and more all from scratch. To achieve the sublime flavors of the East, there is no substitute for the time-honored customs of these rich and ancient cultures.

Wild Ginger has moved to a new location in Bellevue-the food is excellent, the menu offers a range of choices (though not so many as to be confusing or make you question whether they can do a good job on that many different entrees) at good prices. The service is excellent-we had a very personable server who was attentive without 'hovering'. The same was true of the other staff members we interacted with. The decor is appealing and offers privacy. My only point is that the entry is on the street, which is fine-but if you park in the garage, finding the entrance isn't intuitive-simply know you need to walk up to the street to find the entrance.

Got a take out and was very disappointed with the quality of the food. The duck was tough, hard to chew and in general pretty bad, we threw away 3/4 of it( $31.00). The dumpling soup was just terrible, the worst I ever had- the broth was a tasteless water and a few , shapeless dumplings in it with no flavor and weird consistency. The spring rolls soaked through with oil. The only dish was fine is fried rice with chicken.
Staff was nice.

Our waiter was busy with a lot of tables so the manager came over to take our order rather than make us wait. Really nice. Waiter was good and had a good sense of humor. All the flavors were delicious. We will definitely go back soon.

We've been to the Seattle location, but this was our first visit to the Bellevue location. We started with potstickers, which were very heavy. Flavor was good, but the filling was heavy, as was the dough. Spring rolls were ok. Seven flavor beef was good, We also ordered seafood noodles and fried rice. all of which were good, but not outstanding. They were out of the mango sorbet, so we opted for blackberry sorbet and coconut gelato. Unfortunately, the vanilla cheesecake was horrible. It had a waxy texture to it an absolutely no flavor. It was sent back. Our server was very nice and efficient. Drinks and food were all brought out in a timely manner. Won't go back, but will try the one in Seattle again. Hopefully it's still good.

My father likes food here so I did an early Father’s Day lunch rather than rushing out tmrw. Food was great, as we ordered 3 entree : seabass wrap, eggplant & tofu, pad Thai. and 2 sides: egg rolls & tofu salad. We got tea as well bill was only $100 & I tipped $20 in cash. Cleanest se Asian food.

We were seated in the waiting area of the restaurant even though we had a reservation. The 2 hostesses looked at us like we were crazy when we asked for another table! The presentation of the food was great but some dishes were not warm and small portions for the price. I would not go back.

This review is long overdue. I dined at Wild Ginger end of May when I travelled to Bellevue.

This upscale Asian restaurant is well located in downtown Bellevue. The food and ambience of the restaurant are both very good. What was exceptional was the service we received from Paul - the Manager and/or Sommelier? Before we ordered food we ordered a bottle of Columbia Valley Chardonnay as we wanted to try a local wine. After our wine was poured, we commented it was a little on the light side when we did the tasting. Paul then brought a sample of Alexander Valley Chardonnay for us to try and explained how the Washington/ California climate difference resulted in different wine qualities. When we told Paul we liked the Alexander Valley one better, he offered to take back the Columbia Valley one so we could enjoy a wine we liked instead. Paul indeed went out of his way to make customers happy.

When the Kai Lan dish we ordered was not available, we ordered Chinese cabbage instead. After all the dishes including the cabbage arrived, Paul surprised us with a complimentary dish of Kai Lan he managed to get from the kitchen! That made our day!

The service we received from Paul was just extraordinary. We will definitely come back next time we visit Bellevue!

We were staying at the Hyatt Regency for a conference and were looking for a nice dining option within walking distance that offers vegan options. Both of my dining companions raved about the vegan curry, and my sea bass was delightful (although next time I would order rice as a side; the portion was small, and I'm not a big eater). Our server was super attentive without hovering, and we all agreed we will definitely be back.

The food was good, but the service was extremely poor. Had to wait a very long time to even get our water and place our order. Then it took a long time to get our check when we were ready to leave. Very disappointed!

I brought my family in for Mother’s Day so I wasn’t surprised at the early dinner crowd. I was however underwhelmed by the food and service. Not worth the price point. Might try happy hour but likely wouldn’t try dinner again.

Mothers day so expected slower service, but some of the food was not really warm. We sent back one item. The biggest problem is the HVAC/fan noise. System needs to be better insulated.
We had a hard time hearing each other, and will be a reason for me not to go back before that is fixed.
Went to Wild Ginger in Seattle two days prior and everything was great.
