Having enjoyed Nonya food in Sydney, we searched it out in it's Singapore home and found the Blue Ginger. I was looking for delightful, light, artistic, cuisine, but the sauces were heavy, the chicken and prawns overcooked. It was a fair enough deal at $100 for two without grog, but the service was the best part of the meal.

Found this restaurant while walking on the outskirts of Chinatown. It's a peaceful oasis after the hectic hustle & bustle down the road. Atmosphere is calm & classy and the service was fast with good attention to detail. As for the food, great presentation and all our dishes were of a high quality.. We had all vegetarian dishes, spring rolls,... More

Food is kind of ok, but you get better value in any hawkers center. Especially drinks are just ridiculously overpriced.

I couldn't hear what I was saying myself and the walls seen to echo a lot

This is the 3rd time I've been to Blue Ginger, though the last time was over 3 years ago. Situated in Tanjong Pagar Rd, in a quaint row of small restaurants, bars and, oddly, wedding dress shops, it's relatively easy to get to by bus, train or cab. It still has very good service, a decent wine selection of reasonable... More

Was told that this restaurant serves decent Peranakan cuisine. A few of my colleagues and I decided to give ourselves a treat. We were not at all disappointed . The highlight for me was the Babi Pong Tay, Ayam Buah Keluak and the Nonya Fish Head Curry. Service was decent and overall value decent. Would go back there again

My friends and I really enjoy eating at this restaurant. The taste of their food is nice, strong flavour but not too hot and spicy for asian.

We were quite disappointed by this restaurant. We spent 100SGD for three plates, a beer and a tea. Portions were also quite small and the place itself is nothing special. You can have much better food of this kind in the street for a third of the price.

I held a small wedding reception here 5 years ago in this quaint little restaurant. Food was very good and the wait staff were friendly and helpful. Visiting this restaurant again after all these years, I can't help but feel a little let down. My main disappointment was with a senior staff that decided it was ok to argue with... More

Blue Ginger serves Peranakan food and it is authentic and delicious. It was my family's favorite meal we had in singapore probably because of how authentic it was. Each dish was very good and the service was quick.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
