This place never fails to excel. Best Rendang I have ever had and the tempura oysters were superb. All the staff look like that are having fun and that vibe rubs off. Superb eatery!

Visited here twice - the first time was so good, we came back for a second round and weren't disappointed. If you enjoy street food and fresh south eastern flavours, this is definitely the place to visit. Best meals we had while staying here :...)More

Busy wee place this one. The food is amazing. Recommend the chicken kapow and green vege curry. Delicious dumplings. No wonder this place is popular. Go have a beer in Whiti hotel if you need to wait!

We went to blue ginger for dinner on our first night in Whitianga. Had amazing food. A must try are the kahawai wontons and the roasted pork belly, however we didn’t get to try much of what we wanted too in our short stay. We...did go back on our second night to try a few more dishes! If you have a sweet tooth and like coffee the Vietnamese drip coffee is a must also. They fill up fast for a small restaurant that don’t take bookings, so I’d recommend going in early as soon as they open to avoid disappointment, or opt for take aways. Try as many dishes as you can, they are packed full of flavour.More

What an experience!The decor, great friendly service and all those beautiful smells. We have ordered the spring rolls, which were good, but the short soup and the Kapow chicken took it to the next level and I must say they were one of the best...dishes we have ever had!Soooo much flavor, my mouth is watering again just to write about it!Portions are huge, we were not able to finish it, same as many other customers around.Thank you team!As we are a big foodies, this visit certainly made our wedding anniversary unforgettable!!!More

Very delicious food. Staff were friendly and attentive. We order the pork bao buns - I think this was the most delicious pork boa I’ve ever had! And the prawn dumplings were so delicate and delicious. Would recommend coming here

Outstanding prawn dumplings and nothing else. Came in laid back and prepared to wait, but $31 and over 55 minutes seems like a long to to wait for a salmon poke bowl. Service seemed to focus overwhelmingly on takeaways and the general vibe from everyone’s...faces in the restaurant was that they too waited a long time for their food. Don’t get me wrong the food is perfectly fine, but not good enough to justify the long wait times.More
