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.

We tried diverse dishes at this restaurant and all were very good. I especially liked the Fish Masala (Chambo).

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.

This place is just great - the put door restaurant by the pool is such a nice location to eat. The Chinese + indian cuisines are so well made, great taste. But the restaurant is verryyyyyyy priceyyyyy.. Good food at a extra ordinary value.

We loved our dinner here. I had tandoori chicken and my partner a vegetarian dish. It could not have been better. Lovely service and we would go back again when we return to Lilongwe to fly back to Europe.

Not wanting to eat alone I stopped off at Blue Ginger for a takeaway. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and once my order was placed I was ushered to the bar. 15 minutes and 1 drink later my order was ready - chicken tikka masala (hot), veg fried rice and a poppadom. Massive portions served in very handy... More
