I had the chicken Tikka curry with Naan. Ooh it was heavenly. The food was absolutely delicious and some. By far the best Indian food place in Lilongwe. The staff are also very pleasant.

Been here a few times and I haven't been disappointed; although the staff become less patient with patrons who are stretching the closing time in the evenings.

I had gone to blue ginger with my family for dinner. The ants on the tree and the chicken lollipop are amazing. My family enjoyed the atmosphere there and the service was excellent.

If you want Chinese or Indian food but cant pick one, why not go for both. Blue Ginger has an assorted menu of all the best eats , and the great thing is you can mix it up.

Visited several times with colleagues, and tasted a fair range of the menu. The food is quite good, and service about average. This is one of the better restaurants in Lilongwe, so would recommend.
